Our Expert Guides will lead you through Salvador's vibrant neighborhoods, full of cobblestone streets, shops, and culture on a full-day historical tour. This excursion is perfect for those who have a short time in Salvador, but would still like to visit the city's most renowned and remarkable sights.

We'll begin by setting out into Salvador's UNESCO protected Historical Center where we'll explore its colonial mansions and monuments, and experience some of the history of Brazil's first capital. As we stroll through the ancient streets, we'll stop to visit impressive secular churches such as the well-known "Church of Gold", São Francisco de Assis, and Rosario dos Homens Negros Church, followed by the world-renowned Pelourinho where Michael Jackson filmed his 1998 music video for "They Don't Care About Us". Next, we'll enjoy a tasty lunch at a local restaurant specializing in the region's traditional dishes, and savor the unique flavors of Bahian gastronomy.

In the afternoon, we'll continue our tour by visiting an area known as "Cidade Baixa", meaning "outskirts", where we will descend the famous Lacerda Elevator which will delight us with privileged views of All Saint's Bay's gorgeous landscapes. Afterwards, we'll stop at the home of a talented local artist, indulge in a refreshing treat at Bahia's most famous ice cream shop, and visit Sagrana Hill where we'll explore Our Lord of Bonfim Church. Finally, we'll top off our attraction-filled excursion at the Modelo Market where you'll be able to pick up one-of-a-kind souvenirs to commemorate you're spectacular visit to Salvador.
