He was knowledgeable and had an easy flow of conversation and sights to visit. We felt like we were being toured in a new city by a friend - who knew the city very well. We received a good orientation to some of the highlights of Salvador. We Recommend Fernando's Tour.

Fernando really is a wonderfull guide! Very passionate about the history of the city, he has a lot of interesting things to tell you and he's very easygoing company! Ask him to take you to see some less-touristic things, he took us to the African market where they sell a lot of candomble-things, an absolute must-visit!

Six members of my family recently visited Salvador. One of the highlights of our trip was our tour with Fernando. He was excellent, he made sure everyone was well catered for- from my 70 year old mother to my 1 year old daughter.
He was keen to know what we were interested in before the tour started then he adapted the tour to suit all our needs. He showed us the main tourist sites as well as some out of the way places we wouldn't have known about ourselves. His knowledge of the history and geography of the city are outstanding, as is his command of English. His prices was also very reasonable.
The evening Samba tour was very well coordinated. He made sure we were able to enjoy the highlights of the music, whilst giving us the background of the areas we visited.

I would highly recommend Fernando's tour to anyone visiting Salvador.

I was very skeptical about using a tour guide because most services will only show you the main tourist attractions and nothing relating to the local culture. Fernando Bingre was exceptional because he customized my tour after understanding my interest. In my many travels, this is vary rare. Not only his language but his intellectual presentation of details of Salvador was more valuable then what was paid. We visited Lower-City (Bonfim´s church/ the view and fortress of MonteSerrat area) the African marketing and also the "hood beach and many other locations.

Most important, you will be safe.

We were cruise Passengers in Salvador just for the dayand Fernando met us at the cruise terminal and gave us a wonderful tour of the whole city. It was a hot day and Fenando was aware we did not want to do a lot of walking and so he tailored the tour to suit us and we had a great time. Fernando is a great guide with in depth knowledge of the area. He speaks excellent English and is a charming gentleman as well. We would most certainly want to meet up and have him show us more of the area if we get to Salvador again. We highly recommend Fernando, not only to other cruise passengers but for anyone visiting the area !!
