Tour Detail

Tour Itinerary

We pick you up at your hotel if in the center of Salvador. The itinerary depends on where your hotel is localized in the city and on the traffic conditions.

We first drive through the busy area of the port of Salvador and then through some low class neighbourhoods, like Uruguay that once formed the biggest slump of Brazil. This takes us to the Itapagipe Peninsula, completely surrounded by the calm waters of the bay and an oasis of peace at only 8 km from the busy harbour area.

We visit the neighbourhoods of Ribeira, with fantastic views on the Bay of All Saints and some small marinas with their schooners and sailboats. Then Bonfim, with the famous church of Nosso Senhor do Bonfim, an important place for pilgrimage where the syncretism between Catholicism and Candomblé still lives strongly. Finally Boa Viagem with the impressive Fort of Monte Serrat and the Ponta de Humaitá, the most romantic spot in Salvador because of the possibility to see one of the most wonderful sunsets of Brazil!

The markets São Joaquim or Modelo that can be visited, are on the itinerary. Alternative itineraries, depending on your interests, can include the Dique do Tororó to have a look on the beautiful statues of the Orixás, African gods and goddesses, and the splendid sport stadium Arena Fonte Nova or the neighbourhood of Liberdade, one of the biggest “black” neighbourhoods of Salvador, situated in the Upper City with fantastic panoramic views on the Lower City and the Bay. Finally, we drive you back to your hotel or drop you off at an intermediate place if you prefer.
