Tour information

We want you to misbehave a little and escape the Disneyland core of the Historic Centre. We want you to see what you were not supposed to. We want you to hear stories from people you shouldn’t even know existed. We want you to experience the hidden bits of Salvador where Bahians will go about their daily lives despite of tourists, not because of them. We want you to see, feel, and be a part of the Old Town’s B-side in its full glory.
