Very nice Niemeyer/architecture tour

Luis Paulo went that extra bit beyond the tour. He added places to show us more about the development of architecture within Sao Paulo. Probably because most public buildings are closed on Monday to see inside. But we got a lot more buildings/sites to see as a replacement. And he took us to some excellent (high) views of the city. We liked it a lot.

The contracted tour was excellent. The guide Bruno was excellent: knowledgeable and efficient in finding ways to tailor the tour to our particular interests. Highly recommended!
