The -only- negative was that we specifically booked the trip with an english tour, and not having that made for a very confusing morning. The destination, however, was incredible. Morro de Sao Paulo was a major highlight of our trip. The guide was super friendly, the coach bus was comfortable, but a bit cold since we only packed for heat, and we couldnt understand any of his explanation of what to expect. Overall worth the confusion though. Giving the guide a five star rating because he really did care about giving everyone the best experience, even if we couldn't understand him haha. Very charismatic.
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!
The day trip with Renato was an amazing experience. He was very professional and knowledgeable. He patiently showed me around parts of the country I would have never managed to enjoy or discover on my own. Most importantly it did not feel like a history lesson, but he communicated an engaging story connecting the past and the present. Everything was simply perfect and tailored around my interests and curiosities.
Marcos, our guide, has a real passion for the city of Salvador and it’s history, and for explaining the African roots of Bahia. His English is flawless. Really enjoyable tour, I highly recommend it!
This is an excellent tour for people who have only one day to see the sights of Salvador. It includes a walking tour of the old town, Pelourinho, and a tour by car of the rest of the city.
