Bourdain’s Bahia

Anthony Bourdain Tour

Our Anthony Bourdain Tour recreates parts of Tony's last trip to Bahia. The late, great, Anthony Bourdain brought his popular CNN Parts Unknown travel show here to Salvador Bahia Brazil in June 2013. Since then we created and featured an awesome (2-day) tour proudly named the Anthony Bourdain tour that retraces his personal and professional journey in Salvador.

This fascinating tour highlights Tony's favorite social and dining spots in Salvador that, for example, features a special dining experience in the home of a popular local chef, a historical, city tour that explores Salvador's famous Old Town Pelourinho district, as well as an eye-opening multiple island private cruise in the expansive Bay of Saints.

Our Bahia Tour Coordinator is Andre seen in his profile photo (see below) having a quick lunch with Tony in Salvador Bahia Brazil taken on location during the 2013 filming of Anthony Bourdain's highly regarded and extremely popular CNN Parts Unknown travel show seen by millions of viewers worldwide.  (Tap HERE to view Andre's BCG profile page)

Andre, who has past experience working with former U.S. President Bill Clinton and, the late great Anthony 'Tony' Bourdain, is a true professional that offers authentic experiences to our clients in every way possible, be it sharing past casual conversations with the likes of Bill Clinton or taking the same tour of Pelourinho that he assisted Tony Bourdain or eating at a restaurant that he'd expressly recommended to Mr. Bourdain and crew.

One thing for sure, Andre will make your time spent with him in Bahia very special, to say the least. There is no doubt, Andre will get you connected with the best restaurants, shopping spots, and hot local attractions in Salvador and other popular destinations in Bahia state.

We are also very proud to say that Mr. Bourdain hired another one of our own, Carlos Scorpião, as his trusted expert guide and an on-camera contributor in a segment he filmed in Pelourinho's historic district. Carlos is an expert local guide, musician extraordinaire with years of experience in Bahia state. Several years ago Carlos worked with us as a lead guide for our very popular Festa da Boa Morte tour aka Good Death Festival held annually in Cachoeira Bahia.

There is so much to see and discover in the extraordinary state of Bahia Brazil, featuring Salvador Carnaval a must-see once-in-your-lifetime experience! Bahia (BA-HEE-A) is Brazil's 3rd largest state, second only to Rio state in tourism.

Bahia's sexy southern coastline, for the most part, resembles the natural beauty of California and Bahia state is big as Texas! There's even a thriving whale watching industry just off Bahia's southern coast. Plus there's the eco-rich Maraú Peninsula on Bahia’s Southern ‘Dendê Coast’, it's a paradise of sensuous beaches, coral reefs, and freshwater lagoons.
