Rio / Salvador / Bogotá By Foot was born as a direct result of the union between the owners of Lapa & Art store, business men who believe in the touristic potential of the city- and a special group of friends with different academic backgrounds (law, theater, geography, tourism, museology) who shares two things in common: the Rio de Janeiro credentials in tourism and a lot of love for Rio de Janeiro. The business know-how was aligned with the tour guides experience and expertize. After years of tourist work, we realized that free walking tours services offered in Rio de Janeiro city needed improvements and modernization. Different from many other tourist agencies in the city, we are commited with the well being of our visitors. Our differential starts in the way we present our service. Our mission is with you: Visitors and Tourists! Lapa & Arte souvenir store believed in our project and gave us support to make our ideas come true, which led to it becoming our main partner. Because of them, our clients may have an unique experience at the end of our Free Tour with lots of advantages and comfort. Thank you for the trust in us and walk this way! #WalkThisWay

About the tour

The mixture of ethnicities, cultures and creeds, which received generous doses of joy and syncretism, gave Salvador a unique mood that invites Brazilians and foreigners throughout the year to feel enchanted by their cultural, gastronomic and human wealth.

Salvador, the first capital of Brazil, brings together the present and the past in perfect harmony. It is the cradle of the most beautiful literary, architectural and, of course, musical jewels. Salvador is considered a creative musical city.

Walking through the streets of the historic center gives us the rich complexity that makes this land a multiplier of references for the entire nation.

In the upper part of the city is the colorful Pelourinho, part of the historic center of the city and listed by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site, there we see the face of this charming place and we understand the Afro force that moves culture and culture. It becomes the blackest city in Brazil and the Americas. In its streets, some very narrow are countless mansions of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries that house museums and restaurants, as well as Catholic temples that attract academics from around the world, such as the church of San Francisco, considered the richest baroque work in the country and one of the most visited in the world.

Come with Salvador by foot - Free walking tours to learn more than just see, walk, feel, touch and savor the history and culture of this amazing city. We invite you to come to our house, not as a simple visitor, but as part of our family, we are sure that after meeting her you will also feel part of her.

No pude hacer el tour porque era carnaval y no vino nadie. Éramos 12 personas en la misma situación y nadie nos había avisado. Al contrario, mw inscribí por internet, me mandaron confirmación y la noche anterior un mal. Una lastima5porque me gustan mucho estos tours y su filosofía. Espero lo arreglen para una proxima situación parecida.
