Renato is a great guide! Knowledgeable and very helpful. Highly recommended if you're looking for a guide in Sao Paulo! Will definitely book him again if I come back to SP.
I have been in tours before in many countries and I also work in tourism. Renato C is a great guide. He is very friendly, sophisticated, extremely knowledgeable, well-educated, versatile, he speaks perfect English and French and more than anything he is very eager to please. I fully recommend him and I doubt you can find someone better than him.

It was an excellent experience to know the local community! The tour was initiated by the community development center for people outside to know about the arts and lives of local people and potentially bring in opportunities to the disadvantaged community. Renato is very knowledge about the history, art and culture of different aspects of Brazil. Our favela tour ended early due to holiday closures. Renato took me to other symbolic attractions to make sure I had a good time. Highly recommended!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Xiaoding- Thanks for your interest in promoting a better life for the community. It was a pleasure to host you. I hope you enjoy the rest of your stay in Sao Paulo! Best wishes, Renato

Renato took me inside the world of the favela, loosely translated "slum", but it's so much more. It's a vibrant community of people who work to improve the lives of all residents through tourism, art & music. I met the wife of a mosaic artist whose home is pieces of pottery, glass, found objects & who told me what it's like to clean her house! I saw the studio of a motorcycle mechanic who makes sculptures out of bike parts. Renato's expert guidance gave me a fascinating glimpse into this unique place.
