An enlightening afternoon
Dec 2020 • Family
Josuel (tour guide) was timely, easy to communicate with, fluent in English, well-traveled, and knowledgeable. My family and I have done multiple tour experiences with him and all were professional, insightful, and culturally enriching. I highly recommend his services to all- including to my close friends and family members.

Friendly, Informative, Fulfilling Tour
Feb 2020
Dear friends and I experienced so much of Salvador, Bahia during our ten days stay. Our tour guide, Josuel, is very friendly. Her was mindful of the differing physical abilities of our tour group. Also Josuel is wonderfully knowledgeable about Salvador's culture, history and thoroughly answered our numerous questions. We visited locations frequently visited by tourists, visited beaches and restaurants that serve marvelous food, and Josuel led us to locations lesser known by tourists and very popular among the residents of Salvador. Such a fulsome and meaningful trip. GREAT VALUE for the money,

Amazing tour!
This was one of the most enriching historical tours I've ever experienced. Walking through the square, museums, shops, and seeing Bahian culture come alive was a real inspiration - I learned so much about my own African history and lineage!! Josuel was the perfect tour guide and went above and beyond to show us his proud heritage and passion for this great city!! Highly recommended!!!

Wonderful Group Tour for 17
Jul 2019 • Business
Josuel led a very enriching tour that included historical facts, access to great restaurants, excursions to Cachoeira, the beach, other places north of the city and any other experience that people requested. In particular I enjoyed the Casa do Benin and other museums, in concert with the information he gave while we drove around the city. I can’t wait to come back and experience more. I would recommend his tours to anyone who wants a true taste of Salvador.

Group Pilgrimage to Bahia
Jun 2019 • Friends
What a trip! I consider myself pretty well traveled and I often wonder where i will end up outside of the country. Naturally it would be back in my ancestors land of Ayiti (Haiti), but there was also something very familial to me during this trip to Brazil. Our tour guide, Josuel, was incredible. The people we met along the way were kinfolks who made us feel very much at home and we came a week stay to reconnect with ancestral tradition. I am so grateful to all who made this trip possible, but especially for Josuel and his passion for this work, his culture, his people, and his land. (Shout out to the lime and coconut man... so far it is the best thing i’ve ever tasted in my lifetime). I hope to see you soon!
