    I had an extra day while visiting Sao Paulo on business and decided to make the most of it. Luiz was extremely knowledgeable, friendly and very easy to spend time with. The park was beautiful, especially the trails off the main path where you could get a true sense of the forest. Highly recommended.

    o Passeio foi muito bom, deu para apreciar a trilha, os animais e até mesmo o caminho pela cidade. O nosso guia Luís com um ótimo inglês mostrou e explicou um pouco da história de São Paulo para meu namorado dinamarquês. Durante a trilha ele nos explicou sobre a mata, os bichos e as diferentes vegetações. Recomendo bastante o passeio, não só para estrangeiros, mas para brasileiros também. Mop

    This was a great experience for me to see another side of São Paulo. The beauty from the forest is exactly what I wanted to see. Luis was great and super for conversation and being just a good guy. Enjoyed the time with him. I would have loved to see more of the animal life - but at least I got to see São Paulo’s version of the racoon: see the pic below. Funny little guy. Loved the coconut water at the end

    We had a fantastic day. We hiked to the top of the mountain in Parque Estadual Jaraguá where you can experience an amazing view of the giant city of Sao Paulo. The hike is quite tough on the knees, so if you need a walking pole, bring it. Luiz was the most friendly and helpful guide. His English is top notch, and he was an entertaining story-teller and full of facts and information. We had specific goals in mind. and were hoping to see a certain tree. Luiz went out of his way to customize the day for our needs, and joined in the 'hunt' for a special tree with us. I can't recommend them highly enough. Brilliant!

    This trip was to the top of the mountain in Parque Estadual Jaraguá. Luis was an excellent host and tour guide. He spoke English well, and it was a pleasure conversing with him throughout the day. He picked me up at my hotel on time. Before we got in the car, he presented trail options, each based on differing levels of difficulty. As an Ironman runner, I picked the most difficult. The trail was demanding physically, but both Luis and I were able to tackle it with no problems. This trip was well worth the time and money, and I would recommend it to anyone who wants to see an outdoor side to Sao Paulo.

    The trip was great. Our guide, Carlos, was fantastic.He contacted us at the hotel when we arrived and was at the hotel exactly when he said he would be. He made sure the entire trip was a pleasureable experience for us. He provided water and snacks which was a pleasant surprise. He was knowledgeable about the history around the park, the different plants and animals we came across. Even on the way to the park as we drove through the city he pointed out different points of interest and shared the history with us. The park was great. The hike could be steep at times, but nothing major. We were afforded a great view of Sao Paulo from atop a large stone formation and ventured to a small lake which was very scenic. I would recommend this for anyone looking for a nice outdoor activity and to experience the forest.
