Overview of your Salvador tour:

Welcome to Bahia!! Even if you come just for 01 day in Salvador, the Old Town or Pelourinho how is used called is a MUST see!! This is my favorite part of the city and the walking tours (in-person or virtual) here is in every itinerary that I send to travelers. The streets that inspired Jorge Amado to write "Dona Flor and her 2 husbands" and were also used by many artists in their videoclip - the most famous one was Michael Jackson in 1996 - "They Don't Care About US" Pelourinho is a also World Human Heritage recognized by UNESCO. Salvador was the first capital of Brazil (settled in 1549) and the first tour that you should do is in our historical center. Most of our museums, schools of music/dance, cultural centers, and some top restaurants are here -do no miss it!

Your Salvador tour itinerary

We will explore the whole area of upper city from Largo do Pelourinho until Elevador Lacerda: cultural centers, museums, hand made crafts of local artists, etc. If possible, I usually suggest to start this tour around 2:30-3:00PM, so we are able to see sunset by the end of the tour. A tradicional itinerary in the Old Town: Start in Elevador Lacerda - best view of the Bay of All Saints (I usually give an option to visit the Lower City - Mercado Modelo) Walk in the Principal streets with calm and time to explore small local shops and local flavours (drink Cravinho is a MUST in Pelourinho) A stop in the Cathedral or Igreja de Sao Francisco (Gold Church) And finish in Largo do Pelourinho (the most famous views of the colonial houses) I usually recommend to eat in the Old Town and I will help you to find the best restaurant for a wonderful "baianese meal" (there are options for vegans/veggies ) (*THIS TOUR AND PRICE DOES NOT APPLY FOR CARNIVAL SEASON - CHECK THE CALENDAR AND CARNIVAL TOUR OPTIONS)
