We will start our walk from the basketball court of the Apprentice Alley, a perfect place to understand the origins, differences, and similarities of tagging and fine art. Next, we will make our way to the famous Batman's Alley, an open-air urban art gallery that transforms the area into a mandatory place to visit Sao Paulo.

Renato Goes

I am a journalist and tour guide born and raised in Sao Paulo city. I completed my graduation in Journalism with an emphasis in Culture and Education and have worked as a reporter for several radios, magazines, and newspapers in the course of my career. I think my connection with the city has become strong in this period when I wrote different articles about social problems, cultural events, new urban scenes, and historical facts of this massive metropolis.


I  started to work with tourism in 2013, inspired by two big events: the Soccer World Cup and the Olympic Games.  I have been working as a licensed tour guide in Sao Paolo ever since, guiding in English and Spanish. My tours these days focus on the street art of the city, and I would love to show you around soon!

From USD 20 / Screen
