To call this service hop on hop off is far fetched as there are only 2 services per day. Sales offices don't know much! Play you luck to catch bus at any lick up points. Go at weekends to avoid traffic, only natural air conditioning!...More

Gives you a flavour of all the lifestyle of Salvador, old and new. Stops at a few key points along the way and some limited commentary. Good if you want to search for places to visit for longer. R60 per person not such a big...More

The bus doesn't have AC with more than 50 centigrade. Our options where either at the sun or downstairs with no air at all. Even the tourist guide felt sick because of the heat, canceled the trip and made us all leave the bus in...More

Prepare yourself for a tour in Salvador traffic for hours. The heat and sun boil us while we see mostly streets and regular buildings. Few and quick stops make it be not worth it.

This 'tour' was more like a slow, time consuming bus ride with little to no 'tour' aspect to it. We drove around for hours stopping mainly at big shopping malls and a few religious attractions. Definitely not worth wasting your time or money on.

It's worthless. Expensive (110,00 reais for a couple, something like US$ 35.00) . The guide mostly speaks only what see needs and is barely educated. Sound system inoperative, old and most of the time you cant hear it. It stop for 15 minutes at the...More

50br seemed a lot for a bus tour, but we thought we'd see what it was like anyway. Not worth it!! Very little English translation - which was inaudible anyway - and even so, the amount of information about Salvador was limited. Probably 5 times...More

It is no hop on hop off as you might know from every other city in the world! There are round about 5 stops on the route, only one or two (Bonfirm, Barra) may be interesting, the other ones are completely without any sense. Problem...More

It is R$50 per person for a full day. You can buy the tickets on the bus. Just note that they don't stop at Pelourinho, you should get of at Mercado Modelo and then take the elevador. The bus is not really English friendly, but...More
