This was a wonderful tour that fully met our needs! It is a treat after a few days in the hustle and bustle of Salvador to come to this smaller, historic área with calmer lifestyle. Dirk is fully professional and knows more details about the área than most people. When my students asked about details of the Slave era he impressed me with his deep knowledge of the history. He is fun, hás lived in Bahia long enough to know it completely, yet can compare and contrast from his European roots as well. Go!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Frances, you are great!

This was the second tour with Dirk. We had a great time and he was well informed about the places we visited. The restaurant he chose added to the tour experience by introducing us to a variety of Bahian dishes. I would recommend anyone comming to Salvador to take the Reconcavo tour. We had a full experience of the Reconcavo área.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Marty, I'm happy to read you enjoyed very much the tour. Thanks a lot for the positive comment. Have a safe trip back to the US. Greetings, Dirk.
Friendly, professional and excellent local knowledge. A thoroughly enjoyable day. Thank you Dirk.

Great guide, very knowledgeable.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your rating!
Dirk is an exceptional guide and highly recommended. He is a veritable font of information and gives access to people and places that would otherwise be inaccessible, practically speaking. He is flexible, discrete and knowledgeable. His passion for Salvador and environs is palpable.
First of all Dirk is very knowledgeable, easy going (he clearly knows the subject in depth). Dirk knows many locals which tells me that he is known and well received in the community. We felt no pressure on going to specific shops or restaurants with him. His recommendations were good, including a country restaurant with great and food magnificent views overlooking the valley almost as we see in the movies. From there we got many insights of the local society and how they live.We'd strongly recommend Dirk
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Mr. Schulman! I also enjoyed a lot being your guide. Greetings also to Mrs. Schulman/Hirsh.
