    Everything promised in this tour is a lie
    Not only did we not get an english speaking tour guide as promised (no one spoke english and wouldn’t even use google translate to tell us anything ), we went to two islands not the one as said on the tour. We wanted to spend several hours on one island which is why we booked this specific tour . It says music is included but they ask for money for the band so it isn’t included.
    Very disorganized. They said 3 hours on each island but it was 2. I would not recommend. Save yourself the money and go on your own. Also I wouldn’t Call the boat a schooner.
    I asked for a refund and they are saying we got on the wrong boat at the wrong time. This is a lie . We showed up to the dock at the time asked for us to come and were pointed to a boat.

    This was a great mix of walking, participating (restaurants and shops), and driving. Ronaldo was incredibly accommodating with pictures, our timing, and the elements we did and didn't want to see. He was very knowledgeable about the city, the churches, and their history as well as the other elements of the tour and surroundings.

    It was a very nice city tour with Ronaldinho. As a result I got good impressions, some recommendations about where to eat and drink, what to see.

    Very disrespectful! We were told to come 7am, but the tour actually leaves 8am! It’s very disrespectful to get people to come so early and have to wait an hour outside!

    My Tour with Josuel was Incredible… Josuel is a Tour Guide who has a love/passion for Salvador and Afro-Brazilian Culture that shows while touring.

    His knowledge is impressive whether you visit the Lower City/The Orixas/Perlourinho the heart of Salvador-Cobblestone Streets-Colorful Buildings and the Churches-St. Francis of Assisi Baroque Church is breath-taking.

    On Tuesday there is the Black Mass in Perlourinho will have to do that on my next trip. I toured to get to know Salvador and I was not disappointed.

    Hugely disappointed at a trip that never happened. I was due to be picked up at 5am and the transfer never arrived. No contact from the tour company and I tried to call multiple times. Thankfully I got a refund from Viator who were helpful about the situation.

    We actually went on the Salvador: African Heritage & Acarajé Tasting 4-Hour Tour

    This Tour and History lesson was extremely fulfilling. I learned soooo much about who I am as an African descendant. Marcos was informative helpful and just a great host. Our group of 3 got exactly what we were seeking; an education on the our African Heritage. Obrigado... Este passeio foi fantastico !

    Very good excursion with a boat and good music on board. The staff and the musicians are very kind. The island are great too. We had a lot of fun!

    First (unfortunately), the logistics. We were supposed to be picked up at the hotel at 8 a.m, but a minibus only arrived at 8:45 - after the hotel reception made inquiries on our behalf. We joined the main tour bus about 20 minutes later at a random point on the main highway north. I assume they forgot to pick us up... The tour duration is listed as 8 hours, so we expected to be back at the hotel by about 4 p.m - but were dropped off at about 6:30 p.m. Luckily, we had no specific plans for the evening.

    TAMAR project is wonderful, the project visitor center is similar to a small marine zoo. OK, but not a must-see. The village resort is quite beautiful, but expect many tourist shops. The public beach at the resort is small and not really inviting. None of our group bathed there.

    Guarajuba beach, where we spent over 2 hours, is beautiful, but don't expect pristine white sand and clear water. The sand is a typical 'sand' color (i.e. light brown), and the water somewhat silty. For those interested in swimming, there was a strong rip current.

    Our tour guide was very friendly, and although we were the only English speakers on the bus (others spoke Portuguese, mostly, or Spanish) devoted sufficient time to us. Overall, though, it appears that the tour is seen primarily as a day at the beach with a little souvenir hunting, not a didactic trip.

    Would give zero stars if I could. Tour was rescheduled for a different day due to weather. Had been trying to contact tour guide to cancel for a refund but getting no response. Would like my money back since we never did the tour.
