The Panoramic Tour - Half Day Tour
One of my favourite places in town. It is one of the most visited areas in town but you can also see it in a different way, considering the atmosphere of Pensinsula de Itapagipe (where is located Ribeira, Bonfim Church and Ponta do Humaita). For this tour I highly suggest ending at sunset of Ponta do Humaita.
We will visit Ribeira, the old fisheman village now became famous for the pitoresque atmosphere, view of "suburbio ferroviario" and of course the famous Sorveteria da Ribeira (flavors of differnet tropical fruits such as "cupuaçu", "caja", "biri-biri", "abacaxi") Church of Bonfim: The veneration of Nosso Senhor do Bonfim is an old tradition in Portugal. Its our Basilica. . . if a Brazilian comes to Salvador he does not leave without visiting this church!!!
At the end of the tour a panoramic view of Salvador from Ponta do Humaita and Forte Monte. My favourite sunset in town!

We enjoyed an excellent tour of Salvador by Sayuri. She is so knowledgeable about her city and gave us in-depth information on the culture and sights. She speaks fluent English; picked us up on time; she is a great driver! Most of all, she was delightful to spend the day with! Highly recommend her! Thank you, Sayuri!
