Hi! My name is Vitor and I'm passionate about the brazilian culture: History and Music are lifelong passions! I graduated in Law School, I have been a singer/songwriter for the past years and now I'm a teacher of 6 languages. I have been sharing my passion for Salvador with friends for a long time, playing and telling stories about bahia's music and ethnic history. And they've always told me I should do it for visitors: so I thought carefully about this AirBnb experience in order to reveal to you Salvador's fascinating people through its Music and History. Let's enjoy some brazilian songs!

I had a really good time listening to Victor play guitar, and talk about music and the history of Brazil, and the different neighborhoods in Salvador. It made me get a better understanding of the city.

It’s true - Vitor really evoked a world of stories and music around Bahia. Enchanting and full of information and knowledge. It was a wonderful time - we now would like to have such an experience in every place. Vitor even sent us links to all the songs afterwards. Highly recommended!!!

One of the best things to do in Salvador, better do the tour on your first days here. The endless flow of stories that go from history, religion and of course - music, together with tips about the city and his singing and guitar playing - made it indeed the perfect tour. It was deep and knowledgeable but never too heavy, always staying fascinating and fun. I wrote down at least 5 pages of his stories cause I didn't want to forget anything. After he saw me looking at kids eating ice cream he changes the route so we'd stop at Salvador's first and best ice cream shop, he's that kind of a guide, that brings slot with him but totally sensitive to his crowd.

Truly outstanding. The tour was the best thing we did in Salvador, which is already an exceptionally vibrant city, and the highlight of over a month of travel throughout Brazil. Vitor is immensely knowledgeable and took any hardball question with a stride. His familiarity with the city, the history and the culture made the tour enrich our experience, and his passion had us attentive and engaged from the first minute to the last. Also, to be sure, it was also very entertaining.
