“Great Tours With Dirk”
Reviewed 26 March 2014

We signed up with Dirk for a day long tour of Salvador - upper and lower cities. We're so glad he was our guide! He was very knowledgeable with the facts but was also able to share interesting tid-bits about Salvador, Brazil, customs, carnival, etc. He also had a great sense of humor and was fun just to sit and chat with. We felt he showed us highlights of the city and then some. We enjoyed our first tour so much with him we booked a 2nd tour - Coconut Coast & Praia do Forte. Again, an amazing day long trip. Dirk was very patient with us allowing us to make stops along the way. We never felt rushed during the tours or on our personal stops. If we were to go back, I'm sure we would take additional trips with him!

“Salvador as you have to see and even more feel”
Reviewed 6 October 2013

We recently visited Brasil and one of our points of interest was Salvador in the state of Bahia .
We were very lucky to have Dirk as our guide for a full day program on the city: the old centre as well as the lower city part.
We were 8 and the whole day was perfectly organised with flexibility towards the program.
His passion for the history and culture of the Bahia state and Brasil in general made us almost feel a part of the local community.
He really loves his (new) country, knows the locals very well and really understands the commercial dynamics/needs of the less fortunated people.
He shared with great enthusiasm the life of Salvador and finally made us bigger fans of his city compared to Rio .
A day we will always remember.
