For our private tour we had Wagner as our guide and Fabio as our driver. Both men were so courteous and attentive the whole time. Wagner is gracious and speaks very good English and his knowledge of the history and culture of Bahia was expansive and detailed. We felt that we learned a lot. Well worth the price and we would book again.
Thank you so much for everything!

My husband and I booked the 6-hour tour encompassing both the old and the new town. Pick-up from our pousada in Pelourinho had been arranged for 8 o’clock. Just before 8.30 Sidney, our driver, turned up out of breath. There had been a misunderstanding as to the exact name of our pousada and he and our guide Vagner were scouring the area for possible pick-up addresses to find us. Once we had all found each other, it was plain sailing and we had a great tour! Both Vagner and Sidney were lovely – Vagner turned out to be a former teacher of English and Philosophy and was a fascinating guy to talk to who took his job very seriously. Sidney was a laugh and just injected the tour with his sense of fun! Tour of the cidade baixa included the lighthouse, several forts and beaches, the orixas lake, an azulejo studio and the Basilica do nosso Senhor do Bomfim (don’t miss the wax body parts donated by people who were cured of a disease!); we then took the Lareda elevator to the cidade alta and saw some of the most breath-taking colonial architecture in the world – the church and convent of Sao Francisco, the Igreja da Senhora de Rosario dos Pretos (a church the slaves had to fund and build themselves as the white elite would not allow them into their churches after forcibly converting them to Christianity!), the amazing Pelourinho district with its beautifully restored colourful houses, several African heritage sites and much more. Vagner told us in great detail and with much passion and insight about African religion and the history of slavery in Bahia. It was a fascinating tour (which overran the specified 6 hours by a fair bit) and we got so much out of it. Muito obrigada Vagner e Sydney!
