There is nothing better than wandering the streets where there are few tourists and the real life of Salvador can be found. Starting in Pelourinho and continuing to less well known parts of the city, this tour is like the backstage guide to Salvador. Pedro,...More

Loved the free walking tour. It was nice to do something a little different and not just follow the touristy path. Our guide was so passionate about the city and really informative. Highly recommend.

Pedro the guide is brilliant and shows you a different side to Salvador than the guide books suggest you see. A side that is absolutely worth seeing. Honesty, beautiful people and interesting buildings make for a great tour. Highly recommended!

Pablo the guide was fantastic. Such a great idea for those visiting the city. Gives real insight and info about Salvador, warts and all. Also seeing the back alleys and real downtown.

Excellent tour which takes you out of the tourist traps and gives a flavour of this vibrant, diverse city. Pedro makes the tour and provides insight into past and present Salvador. I now wish I was staying here longer.

If you're coming to Salvador, do this tour before anything else. Had we done this tour earlier in our stay we probably would have enjoyed our overall Salvador experience more. Pedro took us to the parts of town we wanted to see but weren't sure...More
