Clara Manuela R.

Salvador, Bahia, Brazil

My passion for tourism began through the contact with people from all around the world, actually relatives and good friends who used to visit Salvador during my childhood.

After finishing the high school, I was able to speak English, Spanish and French fluently. Due to positiv experiences of cultural exchange with friends from all over the world, I decided to start a Bachelor Study in Tourism Management, in Salvador.

During the study, I got some experience in different sectors of the tourism industry, such as Tour Operations Management, Destination Management Organizations (DMOs), Hotels&Resorts, Gastronomy and Events (MICE). But the experience I most appreciated was tour guiding.

After achieving the Bachelor degree, I got certified by the Ministry of Tourism as Tour Guide and moved to Germany where I applied for a master degree in International Tourism Management. As a tourism specialist, the focus of my work is to strengthen regional development at the destinations and at the same time to enable an authentic local experience for the visitors.

Salvador is a unique city, plenty of secrets and personality. Most of my tours are walking through the old (upper-city and/or low-city). The tours can also be customized according to your personal interests. My fields of interests are: religiosity in Bahia, music, gastronomy, history, economy, architecture and arts.
