If you would like to discover the unique historical centre of Salvador da Bahia and get a closer look at this typical cultural heritage of Brazil you should definitly consider a walk in the Pelourinho and annex Santo Antonio alem do Carmo neigborhood.

You should know that we offer a different approach, off the beaten tracks.
Our collegue guides gently take you only to the beautiful monuments AND discretely lure you to some of 'their' prefered souvenir shops.
Ivan Bahia Guide's team goes way beyond that.

We will also walk in the hidden parts of the historic city district, where you will almost never see tourists wandering around.
But, you will be able to observe the locals and their daily activities. Way more fun if you are looking for real local culture, no ?
Have a view at the next video and you will immediatelly understand why this city-tour should be a must on your list.


We will meet 9AM or at 1PM. If you are staying beyond the city center we can arrange (minimum 2 participants required) to collect you at your hotel/pousada/appartment or at the harbour exit if you would be travelling by Cruise ship or Sail Yacht.

You will be in for a treat discovering some of the most beautiful buildings and places in Brazil during a 4 hours walk.

At the end I will bring you back to the place where I collected you earlier on. Feel free to mail me if you would have specific requests for this beuatiful walking discovery of Salvador da Bahia through our CONTACT-page.
