About :

Hello! I'm Dirk, your tour guide in Salvador! My name is Dirk Van Kerckhove and I live for over 25 years in Salvador, capital of Bahia, one of the most interesting, beautiful and diverse states in Brazil (situated in the region called the Northeast). I was born in Belgium, in the Flemish part, where I grew up, studied, received my university degree as an engineer, started to work and also to travel outside the European borders. On one of those journeys, I visited Brazil, fell in love with this fabulous tropical country and it's people and decided to come and live in the magic city of Salvador, that had seduced and passionate from the first moment we met! For over 10 years now, I'm working as a professional licensed tour guide in the state of Bahia and especially in it's capital Salvador. At the bottom of this page you can see my official guide badge emitted by the Ministry of Tourism of Brazil. I'm an open minded world citizen, communicative, friendly, courteous, respectful and honest. I speak fluentl

"Excellent guide " Dirk is a charming Belgian with a lot of knowledge living 30 years in Bahia. Comfortable, safe, guide who knows the best spots for history, churches, shops, even ice cream. Worth the price.
