Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
What to Expect
WIth this walking tour in the historical district we take another different approach of the city, an perfect alterntative to the classic tourist guiding.

Ivan presents you a 4 hours walking-tour off the beaten tracks, where you will meet and greet locals in their daily activities and discover the history of Salvador da Bahia including some curious details.

Of corse you will see some musts (like the most famous Ladeiro do Pelourinho) but our aim is also to let you feel the real vibes of the district and experience how locals live.

Therefore we take you also around in lesser known neigborhoods (like Santo Antonio), and that's why this specific tour is in demand already for many years.

In this tour is that we also adapt it to your specific interests, there is no competition for this in Salvador.

If you want to discover Salvador like you want it, with a local who knows the city like it's pocket then you simply have to book this tour.

You will enjoy it, guaranteed.
