Today it is the beaches that identify Rio and its culture defined as vibrant, joyful and exotic.

Transfer to the airport.

Flight to Salvador (not included)

Cradle of sugar cultivation in its first hundred years, the city owes its economic development to the search for gold and diamonds from the mines in the interior of the country. After Lisbon, Salvador was the second city of the Portuguese empire, distinguished by its numerous churches overflowing with gold and its magnificent colonial buildings and its festivals.

Capital of the State of Bahia, Salvador is today the most African city in Brazil. Here the syncretism between Catholicism and African rituals imported by ancient slaves is expressed in festivals, processions, music and cuisine. It is impossible to resist the temptations that this city offers: a tropical environment and a culture rich in traditions and festivals.

Arrival at the airport and transfer to the city center.

Lunch at the Uaua restaurant: you will taste the famous moqueca, a typical specialty of the Bahia State, prepared with fish, coconut milk and palm oil.

Salvador is divided into two parts: Cidade Baixa and Cidade Alta – developed at the base and on the top of a hill of about 100 meters. Many narrow streets, trams and elevators connect the two parts.

Beginning of the visit to the Upper Town, the ancient city, which houses the major monuments where it is possible to admire the richness of its Baroque architecture, a permanent source of discovery. The richness of Salvador's religious past is why today the city is called "the city of 365 Churches". Guided tour of the upper city, where visitors will have the opportunity to visit the Plaza de Pelourinho, the place where slaves were punished in ancient times and which today is the place with the largest number of examples of colonial architecture and the growing cultural renaissance such as the Church of Nosso Senhor de Bomfin and the church of San Francesco.

Day 7 : Friday / Salvador

We continue with a visit to the Cidade Baixa (lower city). Salvador developed on the base and top of a hill, which is why it is naturally divided into Cidade Baixa and Cidade Alta. The traditional buildings of the city are flanked by modern constructions, all enclosed in perfect harmony. This contrast between colonial and futurist architecture creates a pleasant variety of backgrounds, with a single common theme: color.

You will also have the opportunity to visit the beautiful Mercado Modelo.

Check out our Q&As

  • How does Today Voyages work?

    We are an Online Travel Agency, specialized in Group Vacations and Private Vacations. We have been in business for over 30 years through our sister company Go West Tours and, throughout the years, have developed an extensive network of trusted professionals around the world and a structured methodology to screen our suppliers. Today Voyages offers a selection of tours that are designed, managed and operated by our network of trusted Tour Operators and DMCs. Our database is connected with our partners so that when you make a booking with us this will immediately be received and processed by the Tour Operator.

  • Where should I buy the flights to reach my destination?

    Today Voyages does not sell flights directly. None of our tours come with flights included. Why? Because we prefer to give full flexibility to our valued customers to select the airlines and the booking platform they prefer. As soon as your flight is booked and confirmed, we invite you to update your flight plan within your Today Voyages booking confirmation page by entering your flight number, departure and arrival times, as well as your Passport information (if needed). None of these fields are mandatory but we highly encourage you to provide as much information as possible. This will allow us to provide you with the excellent service you are looking for.

  • What is an additional excursion or tour optional?

    Certain tours might show a selection of additional excursions/optional activities that you may want to add to our standard itinerary. These services are priced separately and can be added to the cart before completing the booking. We believe these optional services to contribute to making your vacation unforgettable; however, you are in no way obliged to purchase them. All our tours are awesome with our without optional services!

  • What is the difference between Group Vacations and Private Vacations?

    If you purchase one of our Group vacation packages, you will be escorted by a professional tour guide and will be traveling with other like-minded travelers you may not know. The group size depends on the tour you select. If you purchase one of our Private vacation packages, you will be traveling only within your group of friends. You may or may not be escorted by a professional tour guide; this depends on the type of private tour you are interested in.

  • When and how will I receive the travel documents (vouchers)?

    If you book one of our Group or Private tours, you will receive your travel documents via email approximately 20 days prior to travel date. If you reserve one of our Vacation Rentals, you will hear back from the property manager via email a few days prior to checking-in. We recommend checking your emails on a regular basis as this is our most reliable method of communication.

  • What happens if a Group tour does not get confirmed?

Unforgettable tour in the US National Parks

04-May-2022

I booked a guided tour in the National Parks through Today Voyages and couldn't have been happier! Our guide was great, he knew the destination very well and gave us great advice for the best hikes and view points. The itinerary was well-packed and we were amazed at the scenery of the South West. We would definitely consider booking another tour next year.

Helengeli island is stunning

12-Apr-2023

Wow, Helengeli island is stunning. The resort is clean, the staff are so attentive, the grounds are pristine, and the food is 5*. Spending a week at this resort was simply paradise, white sand, crystal blue ocean, what more could you want! As I wasn't able to tailor-make my holiday, the Today Voyages team helped me find the tour that best matched my expectations, and they definitely didn't disappoint!!!

There is no better place on Earth than Bali to celebrate your honeymoon. We are so glad we came across this tour. Two unforgettable weeks of jungle adventures, beaches and snorkeling, massages, nature. And the price was great. We cannot be happier! Planning Vietnam for 2024!

Top Experience!

03-Feb-2023

The Las Vegas and the National Parks Hiking Tour is a deal not to be missed. What a phenomenal trip! We were 14 people in our minibus and it was great to connect to all of them. So many stories to share. The cool thing about this tour is that it attracts hikers of all kinds: laid back hikers as well as more experienced ones could find beauty in every single destination this tour took us to. I will for sure join another tour soon. Thank you guys, also, for the assistance provided throughout the trip. Loved it!

Unforgettable 8-day trip to Kenya

01-Mar-2023

I just came back from an unforgettable 8-day trip to Kenya. A mix of relaxation and adventure. I had never traveled with a group before and, honestly, I was a little skeptical at the beginning. Pauline at Today Voyages convinced me that this was the right tour and the right destination for me. And the truth is... she was right. Tsavo and Watamu are such awesome destinations, our guide was impeccable and it was a small group: a family of 4, a young couple, and us. We became friends. Highly recommended!
