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!

It was my first trip to Brazil on my first trip to Brazil, but I was able to explore the city at night with a very experienced local guide.

Luiz was amazing, resourceful and completely dedicated to us and our time.

Great Tour and Vagner was really helpful. Would 100% recommend.
