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!

Great Tour

The tour and guide were excellent. The English was very clear and had great explanations for the questions asked. I plan to return with a group of friends next year and will rebook with your tour group.
