Walking on the streets in the Historical District of Salvador feels like being taken back to ancient times in Brazilian history. Visit the first fort that was built at the entrance point of the bay of All Saints to protect the city from an attack. A stop at the city center is a must for anyone staying in Salavador da Bahia!

What You Can Expect
The streets of Central Salvador take tourists back to the beginnings of Brazil. Your tour begins at the Barra Lighthouse, passes the Teatro Castro Alves, home to the Bahian Symphony Orchestra and on to the Balé (ballet) de Castro Alves. The Forte de São Pedro and Praça Castro Alves are on route to the Historical Center of Pelourinho, which offers something to see along every street. Don't miss out on the historical churches, cafes, restaurants, shops and pastel-hued buildings.
With more than a thousand houses, churches and monuments built since the 16th century, Salvador makes up the greatest collection of Baroque architectural heritage in Latin America.
Very informative and our guide John Paul was humorous.

excellent guide jean luis tres bonne connaissance de son programme
Christina showed us all the nice historical places in Salvador d.B. and gave us always the necessary historical background.
Great walking tour of the historical portions of Salvador city. Accompanying Guide was friendly and spoke good English, patiently explaining the significance of the important buildings and sights in different languages.
Trip was marred by the more than 1.5 hr late pick-up for the tour. Reason was traffic pick-ups far from the city.
Further, the local tour agent spoke little English on the phone, and could not explain why the pick-up was late when I called to check.
It was ok. We mostly walked around the historic centre and went in and out of shops. We went into one church we had to pay our own entrance fees.
Your guide never showed at appointed time. No communication beforehand and to date, no apology of explanation. I'm also disappointed w viator. I've tried twice to get them to deal with the matter and remain in wait for an answer. No Bueno.
