Denis G.

sao paulo, Brazil

Hello my name is Denis and I was born in Sao Paulo.

I am an official tour guide for Brazil (Ministerio do Turismo License), and I have a degree in International Relations and I studied English in Australia. I am a very flexible person, and always do my best to help my guests in their expectations. I like Arts, Culture, Nature, and I am a musician in my free time. I have worked as a tour guide for the last 15 years in Sao Paulo, Rio de Janeiro and surroundings, and I love my job!

Sao Paulo is the biggest city in South America and , to see it in a short time, you need a skilled guide to visit the interesting attractions and save time.
There are many attractions in Sao Paulo, like museums, historical buildings, nice archtecture, beautiful neighborhoods, Graffities, central park, shopping streets, wonderful restaurants, and a great cultural diversity.
Every tour I make is a different new experience, because the city is different day by day, and the group is a new one every time.

My favorite tours are "Ilhabela" , one of the most beautiful islands in Brazil, with beautiful beaches and waterfalls surrounded by the rainforest, and Coffee Farm Tour, where I can show the visitor everything about coffee processing.
I was a boy scout as a kid, so I love Ecological Tours to walk in the Atlantic Rain Forest.
Sao Paulo is surrounded by that Rainforest, and the beaches on Sao Paulo's coast are about 70 Kilometers away from the city.
We also have beautiful mountain places to visit nearby, like the town of Campos do Jordao, that has a quite european style and feelling of the brazilian mountains.

A Recent Review of this guide

We had a great day tour with Denis to Ihlabela. The drive down to the coast from Sao Paulo is quite spectacular. Denis picked us up from our hotel and could not do enough to make us comfortable. When the ferry queue for cars was backed up for miles he improvised to get us on to the island in double-quick time and we had a lot of fun riding bikes along the coastline. We stopped for a meal along the way & the seafood was really great quality, delicious octopus and calamari - perhaps the best we've ever had.
