What people are saying about State of Bahia

We had a wonderful day at Guarajuba Beach, Praia Forte and the Tamar project. Communication in advance was good. I would have given 5 stars for the tour itself, but 1 star deduction, because I had already booked the tour in German at the beginning of November and it turned out 4 days before the start that, due to a system error and due to the carnival, the tour was only in English is possible. Our guide Misael and driver Alfredo Junior were excellent. Since it was a private tour, they were able to cater to our needs and we felt very comfortable and safe. The two had to compensate for the carnival-related limitation disappointing the beach Tamar. We couldn't see any free turtles here, only in the pools. But Misael was able to liven it up with his explanations. You could do without a detour to visit the ruins of the Garcia d'Avila castle. The view from above is nice, but the way there is not worth it.

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!
