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

We took this tour on Saturday afternoon. So many places including churches closed in a short time. However it was a good introduction to Pelurinho and for the visits to the important places the next day.

We were hoping to learn about Salvador’s incredible history from a local or at least a Bahiano - an Argentinean guide who gives us a retelling of history without much of a storyline or common narrative, did not feel like a good local experience. We also barely spent any time in the Pelorinho central district and area. We were really hoping to absorb as much of the amazing history and culture of Salvador through this tour, and we left really disappointed.

The tour was absolutely fantastic. Our guide, Eduardo was superb. He was very well informed, funny, friendly and really helpful. He had such enthusiasm and passion for his city which made the tour great. He even took a group of us to a Womens football match in the evening! Thank you Eduardo you really made my time in Salvador.
