who we are
Tatur Turismo was founded in Salvador da Bahia in 1990 by Irish-born tour guide Conor O´Sullivan. Inspired by the wealth of Bahian history and culture, the warmth of its people and the great natural beauty of the state of Bahia, Tatur Turismo has pioneered innovative itineraries with a creative, imaginative approach embracing a wide range of areas of interest for an equally varied client base.
We provide a complete range of personalized destination management services, with a special focus on customized itineraries for independent travelers, faculty-led educational itineraries, incentive travel programs, congress and events, African heritage itineraries and community based travel programs.
Essential to our longevity has been our ability to identify reliable, professional suppliers, assembling a network of local experts and contacts, thereby building solid and enduring working relationships based on mutual respect and fair trade. In this way we have assured a sound basis for the company to create and operate innovative itineraries finely tuned to clients’ specific interests, involving the local community where and whenever possible.
Founder Conor O´Sullivan, from Cork, Ireland, settled in Salvador in 1985 where he completed the official tour guides course in 1987, a course that was to prove to be an immersion in Bahian history and culture, and the seed of a passion for Salvador and Bahia. He continues secure in the knowledge that Salvador is one of the great cities of Latin America.
Operations Manager Nelman Torreão has been with the company since 2001 and coordinates all logistical operational aspects like few in the business, whether it be chartered flight operations, group programs, or customized individual travel itineraries. Highly respected by peers and clients alike, he is as passionate about his work as he is about his favourite team, Esporte Clube Bahia.
Sales Manager Angelo Rangel is also fundamental to the team, looking after all sales queries, program development and creation of tailor made itineraries. King of the keyboard jungle that is the internet, Angelo provides essential backup for the in-house operations system and company visual communication. His football allegiance lies with Corinthians.
Francilda Gomes is the newest member of the team and has been with the company since 2011. Thorough and zealous, Francilda looks after all financial and administrative aspects of the company.
