The former capital city of Brazil, Salvador is the capital of the state of Bahia. The city is known for having Brazil’s largest, week-long Carnival. Additionally, the urban centre is the place to get delicious African-Brazilian cooking. Salvador tours offer opportunities to see the area and explore its history, culture and attractions.
People can rent cars in Salvador, and riding is a safer than walking or biking. Still, for navigating the aggressive traffic, many people hire a local driver. Taxi service and experienced, private drivers are a great help in getting about the city and sightseeing.
The city public buses run predictably in the main areas of the metropolis, and open-top buses are good for touring. Coach tours between Salvador and other cities of Brazil like Rio de Janeiro are also available.
One of the best places to walk in Salvador is down near the seashore. The coastal beach areas are wonderful for long walks, except for Porto de Barra since it is so crowded.
Old City Walks
People can easily walk leisurely around the old heart of the city. Many of the charming, historic buildings are beautifully maintained and brightly painted in various colours.
Visitors can hire local guides to conduct them about the city and lead them on tours of the main Salvador attractions as well as explore its culture. They know the best restaurants and after dinner entertainment spots, and they can assist their guests in understanding the customs of the locals.
