My husband and I both thoroughly enjoyed the Salvador historic tour with Dirk. He gave us an abundance of information and took us to very interesting sites. I didn't feel particularly well on the tour and Dirk made sure that we walked at a pace which was comfortable. We highly recommend this tour!! Thank you so much Dirk for everything.

Our tour with Dirk was outstanding. He developed a custom full-day tour for our cruise ship stop which may have left no stone unturned in the city of Salvador - which became much more memorable with Dirk's commentary. No one should hesitate booking a tour with Dirk - he has a great knowledge of the city and its history, sights and cultures.

We were in Salvador a few days before Carnival, so Dirk had to juggle a lot of traffic and crowds to show us around, but he handled it flawlessly. His knowledge of and love for Salvador are readily apparent. My mom and I were extremely pleased with the amount of the city he managed to show us in the time we had. In fact, he did such a good job showing off his city that I am trying to figure out how I can visit again!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Kate, Thanks a lot for this wonderful rating. By biggest happiness is that you enjoyed fully the tour and my city! Looking forward to see you back here in Salvador! All the best for you and your mother! Greetings, Dirk.

Outstanding. I have travelled extensively and taken many tours. Our day with Dirk in Salvador was by far the most rewarding. We chatted constantly throughout the day on many varied and interesting topics. He brought so many facts to the hugely varied and amazing sights of Salvador. He showed not just the cliche tourist bits but many off the beaten bits - we really saw some spectacular sights.. His enthusiasm for the city was clear and he really made our day truly memorable.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your review Paul! I'm happy to read that you enjoyed the tour and my job as tour guide. All the best to you and you friend.

An excellent guide, knowledgable, and flexible. We normally don't like organized tours, but Dirk customized everything to cater to what we wanted; more of what we like, less of what we don't! Also very helpful with a client with a wheelchair!

Thank you very much for this great day in Salvador! Dirk has been very professional and informative, he took the time to show us interesting quarters of the city and adapted the tour on our questions. We liked to visit the market and popular quarters we would probably never visit alone. He knows very well the city and its inhabitants, and gave us historical informations in French. His tour was one of the most important highlight of the journey, and we definitely recommend him. He deserves to succeed.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Emilie. I'm really very happy that you fully enjoyed the tour you took with me! Thank you very much for your rating! All the best for you! Warm greetings from Salvador. Dirk Raymond.

Inspite of the guide being belgian, his knowledge of the history and culture was at the level of a local. At the end of the day I would recommend him to any of my friends.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for your review Henriqueta! I wish you good luck here in Brazil! Greetings from Salvador, dirk.

Dirk was a wonderful guide! He was on time picking us up and extremely warm and friendly. I love history and Dirk knew his history of the city, which was wonderful. He gave us a guided tour that enabled us to come away from the City of Salvador feeling that we had learned everything there was to know. I would highly recommend Dirk as a guide - you will love him!!!!

I simply cannot imagine coming to Salvador and not taking a tour with Dirk. His knowledge of the history of Salvador and Brazil was simply amazing. When the weather was less than optimal, he quickly and flexibly changed the order of things on our tour around and that worked beautifully for us. Great tour, Dirk--thank you for showing us "your" Salvador!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Paul, for your feedback and I'm really glad you had a great time and tour here in Salvador!

In Salvador Dirk gave us detailed information on the history and historical features of Salvador. Despite a little morning rain, he got us to all the sights. we particularly enjoyed the historic district. Highly recommend his services.
