Brazil Tours Explore São Paulo and Surroundings

Sao Paulo is where business and pleasure come together offering a wealth of activities and experiences never seen before.

Sao Paulo is the most populated city in Brazil and can seem daunting to first time visitors. Tall buildings, bustling crowds and dizzying experiences there is a lot of take in. It is a beautiful city that unfolds like layers offering something new at every corner. Gourmet restaurants, art museums, music scenes, there is something for everyone.

On the outskirts of the city lay incredible agricultural lands, a reminder of the incredible importance of Sao Paulo in the sector and the wealth it brings to the country. 

    An art and culture hub

    The financial centre of Brazil, Sao Paulo or Sampa as the locals call it is a diverse city with a mismatch of stunning architectural buildings and new modern ones. It is a unique place like none other in South America with coffee plantations hidden in its midst and the centre of fine arts in all of South America. The Museu de Arte has 73 sculptures from Degas and some of the best arts by artists such as Van Gogh, Renoir and Miro. 

    Due to its incredibly large population traffic jams are common in this city and to avoid the problem the rich have found a solution and taken to the skies preferring to use helicopters instead of cars to get to their destinations as quickly as possible. There are over 200 heliports in the whole of the city, the largest number in any city in the world.
