    The tour leader was fine but I was the only person who spoke english on the bus. It was advertised as an english tour but it wasn't. I left early because I didn't feel comfortable waiting for the tour to be translated just for myself. I still missed some information.

    Fiz o passeio acompanhada pelo Guia Val, que se mostrou um cavalheiro, gentil e muito prestativo. Fiquei encantada com seu conhecimento e forma de contar as histórias, com sua alegria e sabedoria. Recomendo milhares de vezes! Profissional exemplar, de um carisma sem par, me conduziu a lugares incriveis, me oportunizando conhecer essa parte de Salvador de forma unica! Parabéns e obrigada ao Guia Val!.

    Conhecer uma área histórica cheia de cultura tem que ter um Guia - @egculturaturismo (71)98866-2325. Uma tarde com muito conhecimento e curiosidade pelas ruas do centro histórico de Salvador. Uma experiência mais que excelente acompanhado pelo Sr. Edvaldo (Guia turístico habilitado) que teve um ótimo acolhimento, além de um reciprocidade incrível. Além de conhecer vários locais históricos, tivemos de quebra um encontro casual com @Tonhomateria (cantor e compositor)

    Wir wurden pünktlich abgeholt. Unser Guide war großartig und sehr engagiert, uns Salvador näherzubringen. Es war ihm keine Frage zu viel, auch gab er uns hervorragende Empfehlungen. Das alles zu einem günstigen Preis. Sehr empfehlenswert.

    Un lugar increible donde se pueden visitar iglesias, restaurantes, plazas, historia. De todo en sus calles y plazas. Es imprescindible caminar por esos adoquines. Los desniveles del terreno hace que no sea muy fácil circular por su centro pero el esfuerzo es ampliamente compensado por la intensidad del lugar
