Great tour, The guide we had Marcos was very knowledgeable and gave us just the right amount of time to see the places we visited at each stop. We did the 6-hour tour and it was definitely enough time to see the key landmarks if you are just there for a weekend getaway! I would book again!

Today we booked a full day tour of Salvador. First along the coast, later through the old town. Our guide 'Vincent' was outstanding. He could tell us everything about Salvador from the beginning to the present day. He also took the time to answer our questions and actually had an answer ready for every question. Exploring a city is so much fun. We thank Vincent and hope you get the opportunity to experience your tour with him.

I always book for a guide, to get to know more of the people, culture and easy access around. As usual, always amaze with the beauty of the place and how rich the culture of Salvador! I am amazed at pelourinho! The interior of San Francisco church, the most beautiful I had seen so far! Patrik our guide, is so friendly and make sure my brother and I are comfortable and safe always. Another found friend in Salvador!
