    What to Expect
    Our Salvador Historical  tour begins at Barra's Lighthouse, one of the most famous postcards in the city. Get to know the charm of Corredor da Vitoria and Praça do Campo Grande (Where the independence of Bahia was declared), follow the busy popular shops at Avenida Sete de Setembro until you reach in our highlight point of the tour, a Walking tour visiting the Historical Center, the famous Pelourinho, with its churches, museums and its rich culture marked by the slavery times.  Finally it's time to relax with a breathtaking view from the top of the Lacerda Elevator, overlooking the All Saints Bay, the second largest bay in the world. After catching your breath it's time to try the Lacerda Elavator, built for more than a century, the world's first urban elevator which was also for a long time the largest in the world that will take you down to the lower city to visit the Mercado Modelo, gifts shops for you to carry on a little bit of Bahian joy in your luggage as a souvenir.
