A Recent Review of this tour

His local knowledge and great personality, sense of humour and passion for sharing his city with visitors was wonderful. Sao Paulo is huge, so with limited time, going with Denis was really the only way to see as many of the beautiful, historic, arty and quirky aspects of the city. My specially created garden tour was a highlight. I hope that others will enjoy this tour as well. Thanks so much Denis, for making my trip to Sao Paulo an unforgettable experience.
