    It was my first trip to Brazil on my first trip to Brazil, but I was able to explore the city at night with a very experienced local guide.

    I fulfilled my expectations, I loved it

    Our guide, Sidnei, a charming person, gave us through the tour a very rich information about the history and evolution of the Bahian society and its African roots and its religiosity. We feel very safe with your company. Totally recommended.
