Sayuri is a highly professional guide: fully knowledgeable about the city and its people, helpful, efficient, punctual and flexible. She thoughtfully designed the tour in advance according to our requests. Sayuri is also an extremely kind and friendly person. She was very attentive to the interests of our son, who had a lot of fun during the tour. The time we spent with Sayuri and the other activities that she generously suggested and arranged for us were definitely the highlights of our trip in Bahia.

Sayuri showed up perfectly on time and had a wonderful itinerary outlined for us. She was very knowledgeable about Salvador but also about Brazilian history and culture. She took us to places we would never have known about and was very attuned to our questions and what interested us. She went above and beyond, offering us guidance on what we might do with a few hours of time on our own later. She's very interesting, a lot of fun to spend a day with and we highly recommend her; we had a great day!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Gianmaria, grazzie! Hope you thought that was your lucky day to book a wrong ticket and end up in my hometown. Hope one day you both will be back with a couple more of days so we can explore more Bahia and you can understand better why we are so special in Brazil. It was a pleasure to be your guide in Salvador! Axé

Frances D.Minneapolis, MINNESOTA, United States
Sayuri is wonderful! She hás a local's knowledge of the city, with deep detail about food, history, music and the local scene and a clear love of what she does: sharing that with visitors. She is highly professional, gave good advice about options, could adapt readily to our interests and needs and connected us with wonderful experiences that we would not have managed on our own - like getting into the front of an amazing church service in the Pelourinho. She hás a big heart! We loved her immediately.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Frances, thank you for choosing Salvador to have such great experience with your students. And lucky you that could be in Cachoeira during the celebration of Sisterhood of Good Death and also a tuesday in Pelourinho/Salvador. Good luck and it was a great pleasure to guide your group in Salvador! Axé!

Sayuri met us as we disembarked the ship in Salvador. She introduced herself and asked us what we wanted to accomplish on the excursion. Her English is excellent and she is very friendly. As we walked, she would explain the history of the immediate sites. We went at our pace, I never felt rushed. I would say that Sayuri is a definite plus for your organization and would highly recommend her to visitors to Salvador. I honestly can't think of anything negative to say about her or our experience.
