On our 1st day in Salvador (10/05), our amazing guide, Vagner, met us at the door of our Air BNB to start us off. We thought the tour was not going to be as good due to the Afro-Brazilian Museum being closed on the day of our tour. Vagner immediately suggested that we tour Feira de Sao Joaquim (Salvador Local Market). Little did we know, the conversations had at the market would connect with us in a huge way. We learned so many similarities between the Afro-Brazilian culture and Southeastern African American culture. However, it didn't stop there. Vagner's historical knowledge is expansive and the way he engages tourists is greatly appreciated. Vagner did an amazing job of informing us of how to engage with locals as well as foods and restaurants we should try during our stay in Salvador. He made sure we saw the best sights all while keeping us on schedule.

Our tour lasted for hours and it seemed more like minutes. I wish our tour went even longer. Thanks to Vagner for being an amazing tour guide.

Vagner was the best tour guide! He was incredibly knowledgeable! I had a million questions and he had the answers to all of them. The history of Salvador is interesting and complex and this tour really made us appreciate this city even more than before. We went to three museums, saw all the important monuments and sites. This tour is an absolute must!

My husband, myself, and one of my best friends did this private tour guided by Vagner. We also did the Pelhourino at night tour with him as well. We could not have imagined this tour would be this amazing. Vagner was an amazing guide, super knowledgeable, spoke perfect English, and yet customized our tour as needed to fit our wants and needs. Vagner was a wealth of knowledge at every stop and was so kind and helpful. If you come to Salvador, you cannot leave without this tour. In fact, i recommend it be done early in your trip as you will know some great spots to visit more on your own after. We are so grateful to have seen and learned so much during our short time in Salvador. Thank you Vagner you are the BEST! Also, a tip: the streets of Pelhourino are cobble stone and there are quite steep hills at times. Wear proper shoes. If sandals, not flip flops.
