Tour: #72448, Coffee Farm Private Tour, Sao Paulo, São Paulo, Brazil    view tour
Date: Mar 14/20

We wanted to get out of Sao Paulo and experience rural Brazil. Seeing the coffee processing was interesting - especially as much of the equipment dates back to the early 50's (if it works, why change). But the highlight was touring the plantation on horseback. My wife has never ridden and it was 5 decades since I last rode. The experience was golden! We finished the tour with a marvelous buffet lunch - many of the ingredients coming from the farm itself. Thank you Denis for a great day.

We took this tour immediately upon our arrival, after a 16 h air journey. Denis first asked us what we wanted to see, so he could make sure that they were included in our itinerary. He covered all of our requests - food market, football museum and batman alley - plus learned so much about the origins and development of the city. He is very knowledgeable and has a good sense of humour! His English skills were perfect! Thanks for a great time.

Denis is an engaging and knowledgeable tour guide. From the moment we saw his warm smile as he greeted us, Denis did everything he could to make our day enjoyable. From the fascinating historical center of Sao Paulo to its modern districts, he guided us through 400 years of the areas progress. We had a particular interest in local architecture and he went out of his way to show us the city's highlights. You can't go wrong taking one of his tours.

Denis was prompt for our GRU pickup. He met us right outside baggage claim, helped with our baggage, and walked us to his very clean car parked nearby. He even brought a small cooler with an ice pack to keep the chocolate that we had bought cool on the drive.

I booked Denis sorta last-minute following an airline flight change that left a hole in my travel schedule. It worked out perfectly, had a good (albeit brief) walk/hike in a national park (got in free since I'm old!). Denis knew the park rangers we met in the park. Overall, a good afternoon! You can book Denis without hesitation for your Sao Paulo needs.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks a lot Robert! It was really a pleasure to give you this tour in such a special date, and i'm very glad you enjoyed it. Wish to see you again around here! Regards, Denis

Great day in the wilds of the city. Not too much wildlife as it was dry season but a trip worth taking to get out of the hectic bustle of the city. We did see toucans a frog and what I call wild turkeys

We had a great half-day tour of Sao Paulo with Denis during a daytime airline transit stop at GRU. Denis really tailored the tour to what we wanted to see. We drove with him to several downtown sites, and even fit in a quick souvenir shopping stop in the Jardins neighbourhood. Denis was knowledgable, friendly and very willing to accomodate. He was punctual and we got back to the airport in plenty of time for our onward flight. We would highly recommend Denis for any tours in and around Sao Paulo.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Steve, it was a pleasure to show you and your family my city. Wish to see you guys again in your next trip to Sao Paulo. Thanks, Denis

Denis is an excellent choice as tour guide! Top service, including pick-up at hotel or airport, and very professional, fluent English and always absolutely on time. He did show me around the beautiful rain forest park and did point out many interesting things, displaying also a lot of background knowledge. He is a very nice and easy person and also interesting to talk to, so I really enjoyed the time. I would always chose Denis again as guide.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks a lot Mr Lutz. It was pleasure to show you my place! Regards, Denis
