“Highly recommended!”

We found and booked Fernando through tripadvisor and had a wonderful tour with him.

He was very knowledgeable about Salvador as well as a friendly tour guide, we have no hesitation in recommending him.

“Fernando made my solo trip to Salvador fun, interesting, and relaxing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2013

I signed up for Fernandos tour of the historic city and the lower city. I was debating whether or not to do the northern beach tour and decided to go in the end. I'm so glad I did because the beach there is amazing! It is where the river meets the ocean. You have the choice to lounge in the calm waters of the river and grab a drink and an umbrella or venture out to the ocean where the wind blows, the beach is practically empty and the waves are fun. The historic city and lower city was a great way to spend half a day and learn about the history and local culture of Salvador. I was traveling alone so it was nice to have a guide and friend to spend my days with. Fernando also recommended things for me to do on the days I didn't spend with him and restaurants to visit in the evening. I highly recommend his tours!

“Great Shore Excursion from Oceania Marina”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

Fernando organized a full day tour for ten of us in Salvador in November, 2012. He rented a van (with driver) to show us the interesting sights. He's well informed and very personable. We had lousy weather, but enjoyed our day in this very interesting city.

“A truly wonderful experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

Me, my husband and 19 year old daughter spent a couple of lovely days in Salvador with Fernando in November. Fernando was able to provide us with lots of local information and take us to places we would not have otherwise seen. We found Fernando very accommodating during our time in Salvador but also for the several months prior to our holiday when he was very helpful throughout the planning process.

We had to change our plans last minute due to our daughter needing to go to hospital in Salvador as a result of food poisoning. Fernando was very understanding and rearranged his schedule to fit in with us. We were very grateful as we did not want to miss out on his tour to the Northern Beaches. Thank goodness we didn't as the tour was marvellous and went way above our expectation. The beaches and local vibe were delightful.
