Bahia's Gastronomy, Culture and History
First time in Salvador? This is the perfect tour for you.
A special day tour: feel the colors and flavours of Bahia, the best of town in a full day experience tour!
During this tour we usually visit Historical Town (Pelourinho), Cidade Baixa/Lower City, plus a panoramic view of Barra, Baia de Todos os Santos and Mercado Modelo. SUNSET in Salvador is a plus in the tour!!!!
If you want, we can also do 4 hour tour during the day and a by night, as long as we do it in the same day. That is a perfect way to see the city of Salvador, complete tour in one day!
For lunch (not included on the tour), I suggest options in Ribeira, Pedra Furada (Bonfim) or Pelourinho. You can not leave Bahia without our typical food Muqueca, Bobo de Camarão or Escondidinho/Arrumadinho.
Join the tour and come to see Salvador

Sayuri was a Godsend. When I booked with her, I had no idea that she would prove to be so integral to my first experience in Brazil. She was communicative and supportive, offering suggestions for activities in/around Salvador. The tour was unique, and more geared towards an authentic, local feel and as the day wore on, she was flexible, thoughtful, and became like part of our group/family. In the days after the tour, she continued to check on our us and help us navigate the city.
