What You Can Expect
Your tour begins at the Dique do Tororó where you'll have the opportunity to examine the Orixás sculptures created by the Bahian artist Tati Moreno. Included at this site is the popular Fonte Nova football stadium. Then it's on to the Lower City, with a stop at the famous Nosso Senhor do Bonfim, an 18th century Catholic church.
The Forte de Mont Serrat, one of the best examples of military primitive architecture in Brazil, provides a breathtaking panoramic view of the city. A stop at the Mercado Modelo craft market will have you browsing and shopping for souvenirs. The tour concludes with a visit to the Lacerda Elevator, built to connect the lower Financial Center of Salvador with the port and market.
Very interesting tout. The guide Joao Paulo was very good and funny. He could speak English and Spanish, and of course Portuguese. He as extremely talkative. Definitiely I enjoyed this tour!!
This trip was absolutely not a single Dollar worth. We visited 3 places thats it and absolutely poor background information on it. Furthermore we went to places which were closed (like the market, whats the sense to go there?) We were not satisfaid with this trip. We wish us the money and time back which we lost in this trip...
