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!

Well worth a visit!

We really enjoyed our tour of Salvador. The guide and driver were waiting for us and were knowledgeable about the area. It helped to have a guide/driver get us around the parade which was happening for Brazilian Independence Day. We saw the tour in 4 hours without feeling rushed. What a lovely city! It was the first time I booked through Get Your Guide and it was a very good experience, especially since we booked at 4pm for an 8am tour the next day - that was impressive!
