Afro-Brazilian: Gastronomy, History, Music and Dance - Full Day Tour


When you arrive in Bahia you are 100% sure that this is the most African city in Brazil. I am very proud of that and love this tour. Let's see in a day most of the Africans heritage, see a bit of the history of the Africans in slavery that only finished officially in Brazil in 1888.
Come and feel the heritage in BAhia: history of Capoeira, Samba, Gastronomy, and Religion. It is possible to book a dancing classs, percussion of capoeira (please request before you arrive)
Please be in mind that this tour we do not see a candomble ceremony - that is a very specific visit in Bahia and depends on the religious calendar of the "terreiros" in town.
Maybe Salvador is not the BEST place to come but for sure it is one UNIQUE town to visit in Brazil. . . AXE!!!
I offer a "basic" view of African heritage, we can customize the tour.

A Recent Review of this tour

Sayuri is a wonderful guide, with a real passion for "her" city. She tailored the tour to our wishes, including an excellent lunch at the best restaurant we have visited so far in Brazil! I highly recommend her.
