Description of Tour

This tour shows you the unique region around the Bay of All Saints, called the Recôncavo. It is the most African region of Brazil that received the first sugar cane plantations of the colony and the first slaves, imported from black Africa. Therefor this is a "back to the roots" tour that will give you an unforgettable experience of expatriation.

Leaving Salvador, we pass the poor suburbs of Salvador and, later, a succession of fields for agriculture and grasslands. A whirling road passing by bamboo plantations takes us first to the city of Santo Amaro. Here, we visit the amazing and busy local market of and some streets and squares in the center. Then, the road takes us to the historical city of Cachoeira that lies majestically in the valley of the Paraguaçu River. Here, we do a walking tour through the picturesque streets with its old houses and churches. There will be time for lunch. In the afternoon we visit the cigar factory of Dannemann where the famous top class cigars are still hand rolled.
