"Taxi drivers in São Paulo" São Paulo Tourist Trap Tip by FernandoImperator

São Paulo Tourist Traps: 10 reviews and 7 photos


WEll, I live in São Paulo, and have lived here all my life. And I know many taxi drivers (as they told me) deceive foreigners and tourists taking the longest route possible to a place. Not all drivers do that, but some even wanna cash a little more on locals, so you can imagine what happens to tourists.

Unique Suggestions: I recommend printing your route via google maps and then letting the driver know you're aware of what your route is going to be.

Fun Alternatives: Riding the bus or the metro may be the best way to get where you want at the cheapest price, but cabs are affordable and generally honest. Don't be too afraid of them, just keep your head up.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
