          Active and informative class. Lots of fun!
          Our experience was great. Mestre was extremely knowledgeable and patient with us. He took some time to explain the history of Capoeira and all the details related to the outfits, instruments, and songs. After that part, we practiced basic moves and it was very fun and active.

          Amazing show and food, but pricey
          Very insightful show and lovely food at Cuco. However, I think we were overcharged, it’s cheaper to buy the ticket directly from the theatre and go to the restaurant yourself. Overall, it was a great experience :)

          good tour but the price not justified
          the tour was informative but not enough focused. the agency is very greedy and took advantage of the situation and charged us double price for drop off at the airport however it was very close to the guide's house.

          The best guide ever!
          My tour guide Vagner was a source of informations. Getting to know Salvador for the first time with a guide like him was extremely amazing. He had so much knowledge about the history of Bahia. Truly an amazing guide. He is also very charismatic and easy to talk to. He definitely made my trip to Salvador very memorably. I could not ask for a better guide! Thanks Vagner🫶🏻

          Lucky if you get Wilson as your tour guide :)
          This was by far the best tour guide we have had in our travels. Wilson is extremely knowledgeable, patient, understanding and kind. He is high-spirited and certainly brightened up our day. We learned so much! Our driver, Fabio was the perfect compliment! Lunch at Santa Cruz was amazing. Delicious food made with all natural ingredients, a beautiful view and fantastic service. Would definitely recommend this to anyone who is up to have a lovely day and learn interesting historical facts. Not to mention it is very difficult to get a tour in any other language that is not Portuguese, and Wilson speaks English and Spanish perfectly. Thank you guys for an awesome day in Salvador!

          the best experience in Salvador
          it was maybe the best experience visiting Salvador Bahia. Great teacher, nice atmosphere. Just wonderful. It is really fully recommended. And our guide Wagner just took part of it and before and after showed us the best places to visit close to Pelourinho (bars, restaurants, shows). He was very helpful.

          Wonderful experience
          What an experience! We all enjoyed our tour. We have learned a lot about the Afro history that shapes the city of Salvador. Our tour guide, Vagner, was very knowledgeable and was easy to understand. We were picked up from our hotel on time. I highly recommend it.

          Learn about Afro Brazilian Culture
          Great place to learn more about Afro Brazilian history & culture. I recommend getting a guide. Also there are two Afro Brazilian musuems. The other one is closed.

          Great time with Wilson!
          Wilson was an excellent tour guide. He was so passionate and knowledgeable. We absolutely loved our time with him. We even ran into a couple of his family members on the tour, and someone he tutored, which made the tour even more fun and exciting. Wilson is the best.

          Good but could be better
          Great experience but it didn't help that the tour company informed me a night before they didn't have English translator which can be a massive inconvenience especially if it's already planned as part of the vacation. Also I think it's better to stay there one night, especially with the 4..5hr journey there and back you don't get the full experience of the island

          Even vegans can have fun!
          I had such a great time, Vagner is an amazing guide with a wealth of knowledge. He gave me tips on how to stay safe and even helped me order vegan street food. I highly recommend this tour group!! I also recommend checking on line when places are open, a lot are closed on sundays.

        I’m not one for booking tours/guides usually- I’m the one with the map and list of places - but after researching what to see in Salvador I decided it was way too big for me to tackle and the best thing would be to use the local expertise.

        We were in Salvador only for a day off a cruise ship, and whilst the ship sells organised tours we didn’t want to be on a bus load, so my research brought me to Your Tour Brazil.

        The WhatsApp correspondence beforehand was good, I didn’t have to pay in advance, and felt confident that we would be safe and in good hands.

        We received a couple of introductory messages from the actual guide Andrei beforehand and he met us at the port on time. We were then collected by a lovely lady driver who drove us around for the first half of the day whilst we jumped in and out at various sites with Andrei who narrated us through the city, the history etc.

        At lunch time the car dropped us at the start of the historic district so that we could continue our tour of this area on foot.

        I won’t go into the details of the tour because you can read that on the Tour site, but I will say we were more than happy with our day. We would never have seen so much of Salvador or learnt so much of the history had we done it alone.

        Andrei is a lovely young man who spoke very good English, a local who clearly knows and loves his city. It was a pleasure to share a beer with him in one of his favourite bars at the end of the tour.

        Fantastic day tour. Marcos is extremely knowledgeable about the cultural and historical context of the city, and a full day tour gave me a great idea on the background of Salvador and where it fits into the history of Brazil.

        I would highly recommend doing this tour towards the beginning of your stay in Salvador, so you can get an idea of the layout of the city as well as a basic knowledge of the history and culture.

        I would also recommend this tour for solo travers and groups alike--it's a great chance to ask questions about Brazilian culture as a whole or life in Salvador in particular.

        Excellent is best description. Wilson has so much historical knowledge to share and provided context & comparisons that made the tour exceptional. Great sense of humor as well. Would definitely love to go on other tours with him. Also, our driver was amazing and a really nice person. Appreciated him too!

        We would not know as much about Brazil if it wasn't for Your Tour Brazil and our favorite tour guide Wilson. He is extremely passionate, funny, and friendly. No textbook can give you more information than what Wilson did. He is a true gem of Brazil and we were luck to have him as our tour guide and now friend. Enjoyable for all ages.

        Isaco is a great tour guide! I knew in a whole day the most wonderful places in Salvador, and not only the most “turistic” place. He is really available to satisfy your need and answers to all your question. The lunch was really good, in the upper part of the city. Highly recommended! 😊

        This is far more than a tour -- it's a fully immersive experience! I highly recommend Marcos and his talented team as they are knowledgable, attentive, and well-versed in everything there is to know about magnificent Salvador. The lunch was excellent and the van was comfortable. This is the second time I participate in this tour and each time I learn something different. The experience is engaging and exciting even for returners. The information provided is anthropological, historical, interesting, and engaging for Brazilians and foreigners alike. The city of Salvador is far more than meets the eye and Marcos did a phenomenal job of piecing together that complex history for a "gringa" like myself! Thank you Your Tour Brazil for the memories!

        Nilson is a great tour guide, historian, teacher and linguist who was able to bring the rich culture of Salvador alive with storytelling and lived experience.I experienced the established sites and incredible experiences off the beaten path.
