What you'll do

São Paulo is hosting some of the biggest communities of immigrants in the world.
We will talk about Italians, Japanese, Syrian-Lebanese, and many others.

We will discover the history of the first skyscraper of Latin America and learn how the Tupi tribe was living here before and where was passing one of the oldest paths of South America

We will cover the "new' center and discover the historical downtown. Jesuits and Conquerors, Churches and Banks, migrants, and immigrants!

During this walk, I'll show you how the city of Sao Paulo transformed itself in the last 100 years and what means living here today.

Be ready to jump to the top of the city to shell the eyes in front of its immensity to then dive into its vibrant communities getting lost in its colors, perfumes, and hidden details.

This is what happens to me every day since I live in this beautiful mess!
Other things to note
Sao Paulo is a tropical city, weather is crazy here. Make sure to have a solar protection and an umbrella at the same time ;)

Giuliano é extremamente experiente, atencioso e realmente conhece São Paulo, incluindo a história do Brasil. Desde datas, até os nomes de cada arquiteto dos edifícios antigos, a profunda história do Brasil, até os mínimos detalhes. Eu o recomendaria a qualquer um que queira embarcar em uma incrível experiência cultural. Ele é muito simpático e a turnê realmente vale a pena.

Foram duas horas num tour guiado pelo centro, ouvindo curiosidades históricas contadas pelo nosso guia. O Giuliano nos mostrou o triângulo das principais igrejas do centro, nos explicando um pouquinho sobre cada uma delas. Conhecemos prédios antigos e significativos na história de SP. Recomendo para quem tem interesse de saber sobre a história do local, contada de uma forma que não se vê em livros.

Giuliano knows São Paulo like the back of his hand. This was, without a doubt, one of the most passionate walking tour I have ever joined. I was lucky to be the only guest on this tour. And by the end of this tour, he gave me a souvenir, which was a really nice touch. Thank you Giuliano!

Giuliano's tour was beyond expectations. It is clear that he is very invested in the history of this city and he is able to share that knowledge with his guests. He was very good at sharing that interesting knowledge and history of SP with us. I would definitely recommend this 3-hour walking tour for anyone visiting the city. Thanks Giuliano!
