The Basics

As well as Brazilian art, the museum features canvases by European artists who were inspired by Brazil, and archives full of documents relating to art history. Many Sao Paulo sightseeing tours stop at the gallery, particularly museum and art-focused tours that tend to cover Museu de Arte de São Paulo (MASP), Museu De Arte Sacra De São Paulo, and Casa das Rosas. Choose a private art tour to customize the museums you visit.

Luis was the perfect guide to share Sao Paulo with us
Luis was our guide and he couldn't have possibly done a better or more professional job than he did. He was BY FAR the best person to share as much information about Sao Paulo as we could ever need to learn. Although everything was closed due to the COVID lockdown we were able to still see so much more than I originally thought we'd be able to see. He was personable, friendly, KNOWLEDGEABLE, and did an amazing job of making sure that we got the most out of our time with him. We were even able to visit an indigenous village due to his special relationship with them, as they are closed to almost all tourists during the lockdown. Thank you, Luis, for making our day with you such an incredible and unforgettable experience!

Secrets of Downtown São Paulo Bike Tour
What a great way to discover São Paulo! The guide was amazing; took the time to explain everything and stopped for important landmarks. I spent a wonderful afternoon! I would recommend for solo travelers, couples, families or small groups who want to see the city and fully enjoy the vibe!

Private São Paulo Tour with Ibirapuera Park, Paulista Av and Downtown Visit
Was in São Paulo for a very short period of time and wanted to see some of the sights and get a sense for what the city was like. My guide was great, and told me about the cities history and what life is like in São Paulo. Great if you need to pack a lot of things into a short period of time (5hours for me)
