This was so enjoyable and informative. Roberto and a driver picked us up at our Air BnB location. We rode throughout Salvador and then had a walking tour of the Pelhourino district. Roberto is very knowledgeable and just downright fun! He was also very accommodating when it became apparent that my husband needed some extra time to do some of the walking. Don't miss this!!!!
