58 Rua Pituba
Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
NileGuide Expert tip:
Cruz the Coast takes the stress out of making this long journey, with door to door transport laid on and accommodation options already arranged. The tour runs in both directions, so travellers can head from Rio to Salvador or Salvador to Rio (or both, should you like the trip so much that you want to do it twice!)
This unique tour company, founded by an Irish-Australian couple living in Brazil, takes passengers from Rio de Janeiro all the way up to Bahia, stopping to take in all manner of sights and activities along the way. Expert guides Jane and Jonathan ensure that passengers pack a whole lot of fun into the 10-day trip, with side excursions such as dune buggy riding; capoeira classes; caipirinha-making and surfing. Guests are free to stick to the suggested itinerary and accommodation options as much or as little as they like - just be sure to turn up and catch the Cruz the Coast bus when it makes its departure each day!
