Private Shore Excursion of Salvador
Then we get on board of our car or a van to visit the Itapagipe peninsula. We'll see the Ribeira Area, the famous Bonfim church and its Brazilian ribbon, the Monte Serrat Fort, Boa Viagem offering a magnificent view of Salvador.
Usually we take our lunch break in Ribeira, on a typical restaurant close to the bay. After the lunch, we visit Barra, the Tororo lake and its huge sculptures of the Orixas, which is the spirits of the Afro Brazilian Religion, the Candomblé.
If we have time, and if you are interested, we can go as well to the Sao Joaquim market, a very local market with an incredible amount of different fruits, vegetables, spices and also all the afro-Brazilian religion (Candomblé) related products.
During the tour by car, we'll stop in the places mentioned to take a walk around the attraction with the guide explaining. For example, we'll stop to visit the Bonfim church, another stop to see the Mont Serrat Fortress.
The only place where is not possible to stop, is the Tororo Lake but we can pass with the car very close by to take photographs.

Miguel was terrific and knowledgeable. I just wish Viator would have given us a heads up that Fernando was replaced by Miguel!
Explored the upper section of Salvador. Great sights and well planned. Guide was good and knowledgeable.
Tour was good. Could have used more co-operation from the weather man!
