Hello, Travellers my name is Fabio or Miyake a Guru from São Paulo. I am friendly, easy-going, flexible and would be thrilled to show you around and help you to explore the city. I own an online Language school and have been working as a tour guide for five years around cities like Vancouver, Los Angeles, San Francisco, London and Paris. I love interacting with people from different countries and believe we can share experiences and learn from one another. Being born and raised in São Paulo (Brazil’s financial centre and most populous city in Brazil) I am able to show you the city as a Tourist and moreover, as a Local would. My main goal is that travellers have a unique, safe and pleasant tour around my beloved city.

Fabio was very well prepared and provided us with a lot of useful information and tips! He is a great guide and speaks very clear English, so it is understandable even for those who are not native speakers or have a lesser command of the language. We also got good tips on where to spend our free time. Thank you Fabio for such a great tour with us!

Communication with Fabio went super easy via group chat (highly appreciated feature!) before the tour. Once we gathered at the meeting point Fabio handed us all a bottle of water each, thoughtful! Information given throughout the tour was clear, interesting and not too burdened with historical specs. As a local he answered all our questions easily and gave us valuable recommendations for after the tour. Thank you, Fabio!
