Luciano gave us a wonderful tour of Sao Paulo and was most knowledgeable about all areas of this huge city. He met us at the port and showed us Santos and then drove us to Sao Paulo for a most enjoyable and interesting tour. You could not find a nicer or better guide. He took us to his favorite barbecue restaurant which was amazing and because he knew everyone were given special nice service.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello David and Cheril Thanks for the comments. It will be a pleasure to welcome your friends .. I hope to see you again ... Best regards Luciano,

Great communication before & after I booked. Luciano bought tickets, took me to Carnaval in the Sambodromo & even brought me a flower necklace to wear. Behind the scenes in the staging area I was able to talk to performers as they got ready & photograph their elaborate costumes- a bailena's hoop skirt weighs 16 kg! During the parade, Luciano explained what was going on- details of the judging, the float pushers, etc. Luciano made my evening a very special experience.

We spent 3 days touring with Luciano and found him to be exceptionally knowledgeable and especially nice. The city tour was a lot of fun, especially navigating the Sao Paulo traffic in the rain. We got a good understanding of how the city was established and how it grew into the large metropolis it is now. Went to the old city area, the Cental Market, and the wall mural area among others. Highly recommend Luciano as a guide in San Paulo.

Date: Feb 15/19

We spent 3 days touring with Luciano. We found him to be exceptionally knowledgeable and especially nice. His explanation of the early history of the Jewish people's arrival and settlement in Brazil was very interesting and informative. We visited a Holocaust memorial exhibit in a former synagogue and saw when the original Jewish neighborhoods were. We enjoyed our time with Luciano. Highly recommend touring with him.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for your comments ..Shelley I also really enjoyed introducing the history of Jewish immigration in Brazil .. According to the Jewish presence in our history, I believe that Brazil is the second home for them, .... Best regards Luciano

He organized a truly memorable tour and was friendly, accommodating, and energetic. I was lucky to have met him and recommend him without any reservation as a tour guide in Sao Paulo.

Luciano met us at the airport and we took off for Butantan. He had already investigated what we could see there. I had wanted our grandson to see one of the most famous "snake and spider"venom and vaccine institutes in the world. From there we toured the city and its different areas. Luciano gave us some history as we moved through the city. His English was certainly much better than my long forgotten Portuguese. I would rate him in the excellent area. He was on time and made the tour interesting.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Fred and family I hope your grandson has enjoyed the trip ... Thanks for the comments.. Best regards Luciano

He took me everywhere that I wanted to go, took me to a great lunch, dropped me off at a different hotel and helped me plan the rest of my trip. I would recommend him to anyone visiting Brazil.

Luciano was a godsend. We found him on ToursByLocals after our cruise ship cancelled our shore excursion to Sao Paulo. He picked us up at the Santos port and drove us to and around Sao Paulo. We ate like real Paulistas - pasteles and mortadella at the Mercado Municipal and brigadeiros and cafes helados in Japantown. Luciano was happy to discuss anything about Sao Paulo and Brazil - history, music, soccer, healthcare, politics. It was a perfect introduction to Brazil. Muito obrigado, Luciano!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Gerardo Thank you very much for your interest in knowing our history ... Come back always .. a long life with health and lots of love for you and Mark Regards, Luciano

And though not part of his itinerary with us, he went out of his way to help me out with my VISA (for our next destination) issues with genuine assistance and efficiency. We had a fun & memorable day with Luciano in Sao Paulo we will not forget :)

Sao Paulo is a huge, exciting city, but it can leave the first time visitor totally disoriented and confused. Luciano made sense of the city, introducing us to the most significant areas and sites. After our tour, I had an understanding of the place and the people that made the rest of our stay much more enjoyable. And, he is extremely friendly, good sense of humor and knowledgeable. Everything a guide should be. Thanks, Luciano!

What can we say? Luciano knows Sao Paolo by heart. We asked when was Brazil colonized? By whom? Civil wars? Who brought soccer to Brazil? Certainly we were amazed by his knowledge. He showed us the old and new Sao Paolo, building designs, food at the Municipal Market, and so much more interesting places. We salute! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Bailey from ���� (Philippines)
