Josuel Olafemi Tours was excellent...
David F, Aug 2017
Josuel Olafemi Tours was excellent. Deeply knowledgeable, flexible, warm, friendly, and enthusiastic about Salvador was the best guide anyone could hope for. Josuel picked us up at our hotel and began the tour by taking us to a site by the shore dedicate to Yemaja. From there, to the lake and the Orixa statutes, an extensive tour of Pelourinho, and Sao Joaquim market. He took us also to a terreiro and we had an amazing improptu chat 30 minutes! with a candomble priest who has given several lectures at top US universities! We finished the tour at a local family restaurant eating feijoada and pichichanga. This is the tour to take if you want not only an inside look into the culture of Salvador, but also have a guide that will accommodate you and answer your every question.

Katharine D, Nov 2015
This was an outstanding tour....a great introduction to the Afro-Brazilian culture of Salvador. Our Guide, Marcos, was excellent. I could not have asked for a better tour. During our eight hours with Marcos, we visited many areas of the town. Had a delicious lunch at a family home. Highly recommend this tour.
