      Great way to see parts of El Salvador
      The tour was amazing. I spent the majority of my time in the beach area, so this was a great way to see other parts of El Salvador and soak up some culture. Adonis was an amazing guide and very knowledgeable. He was able to answer any questions we had. Ramon, our driver, was great as well.

      Amazing Company!
      Awesome!!! If you want to have the best experience of your life in El Salvador, then Salvadorean tours is the company for you. I booked the package that includes all the activities for a week, airport hotel airport transfer, and it was the best experience ever. The driver airport hotel airport Rodrigo was great, waited for us outside the door, picked us up on time the day of the departure, great conversation, profesional, and polite. The first three days we were assigned to Alfredo who is an awesome guide and human being, picked us up on time, took us to the tours, and gave us suggestions of places to eat like the locals where the food was amazing and not with tourist prices, even on a day that he wasn’t with us he helped me sort stuff out. The experience we had was great, El Salvador is a beautiful country, extremely safe, with very nice and polite people, and will definitely go back and recommend to others to visit. If you want to have a great time, all planned, and you just get ready to enjoy just go with Salvadorean Tours!

      Good full day combo tour
      We had an enjoyable trip. It is exactly as described, pickup on time at the place, the stops as described, the routes as described (the national park, lake, 2 Mayan sites, with sights of volcanos if weather permitting). The tour guide Ado did a good job telling us the history and culture of El Salvador. Beautiful forest, lake, and a delicious lunch.

      San Salvador Tour
      Francisco picked us up at our hotel and then took us to a wonderful restaurant overlooking San Salvador with great pupusas. Then we went into the city and explored San Salvador. Iglesia de Rosario was breathtaking and the library was definitely a special place. Francisco was knowledgeable, friendly, and a great guide. A great experience that I would definitely recommend!!!

      Informative Tour
      Solo traveler here! I feel very lucky to have gotten a tour with Alfredo. He was knowledgeable about so many things - especially the history of El Salvador. He took his time and made us feel like he was enjoying himself throughout the day and not just working. He also recommended a great Waterfall guide in Tamanique, which ended up being my favorite day. You'll definitely enjoy yourself on this tour. Please note this is not a hike to the volcanos. You will be seeing them from afar. Still amazing views.

      Faultless tour provider for El Salvador
      Excellent tour provider. Always responsive to communication prior and during the trip. I booked airport transfer, Santa Ana hike and return airport transfer with quick city tour in the morning. All tailored to my arrival and departure times and all at a great price. Everything went very smoothly, i would always receive a message the day before with details of driver and start time. Thanks to Eduardo, Vitelio and Carlos. Had an amazing time, only wish it had been longer. If you’re wanting a perfect tour agent who has great communications (I had tried another agency first which was really hard to get replies so gave up) then look no further.

    I had some time on my hands and the opportunity to go through San Salvador Airport, so I was looking for a way to still see what El Salvador had to offer. The company was very accommodating and responsive and helped me to choose the right experience, incorporating my interests around Mayan culture and history. The whole thing was setup seamlessly. My guide and driver, Eduardo, was very knowledgeable about a lot of topics including history and archaeology. He even helped pick out a restaurant for lunch overlooking a wonderful view of the crater lake. It was a long day, but one that I found worthwhile and would highly recommend.

    I had the absolute best time taking this tour! My guide, Benjamin, was very kind and personable. He had extensive knowledge of all of the sites and really went out of his way to make sure that I was taken care of. It was very cool learning about the history behind each site, especially Joya De Ceren. I highly recommend! Visit El Salvador!

    Three archeological sites, a delicious (and boozy) terrace lunch overlooking the Santa Ana cathedral, spontaneous tour of the inside of the Santa Ana theater, quick stop to admire some black lava fields, and a morning coffee run to sample an El Salvadoran coffee chain? Sign me up! Bring sunscreen, a hat, and plenty of water. There's little to no shade at these sites. My tour guide Alfredo was a phenomenal guide; friendly, knowledgeable, and very accommodating. Keep expectations in mind that the sites are partially covered in concrete for preservation reasons & they aren't exposed like the Mayan ruins in Mexico. All the sites are pretty far from each other, so having a tour guide was the way to go.

    Amazing customer service! Antonio was an exceptionally knowledgeable guide, who made us feel at safe and at home. The tour was very well planned out and he even accommodated a few stops for me to buy treats I was craving. I will definitely return and use this tour company, there’s so much to see in this beautiful country.

    Our tour guide, Alfredo, was professional, knowledgeable, and an overall awesome person. I learned a lot about Mayan and El Salvadoran cultures and the landscape. The short hike was lovely and the restaurant meal was delicious with a beautiful view. The pictures from today will bring smiles to my face for many years. I felt very safe as a solo female traveler with limited Spanish. I cannot recommend Alfredo and our driver Ramon enough!

    Just the best. Ask for Eduardo for your tour, he knows an amazing amount of Mayan culture and Salvadorean history. Vitello was fanstastic as well on my tour to Copan. Incredibly helpful before the trip with forms and questions as well as during. Price was extremely reasonable. A good tour company can make or break your trip and these guys are a great company.

    When the driver arrived and we were in the
    Car before leaving the hotel I asked what places we are going to visit he said 3 places
    And I said no it suppose to be 4 and he said that 1 was closed. I said why nobody informed me about it. He started to give all
    Kind of excuses. So I left and call the office
    And told them how I felled about it and demand my money back. Be smart and don't

    Good morning and thank you for your message. We are sorry this happend to you but the closure of the mayan sites is not in our control. We did send you an email as we did with all the guests traveling with us that will be affected by this change by the Ministrt of Culture. It is unfortunate you did not see this notificaron on time and that you were not able to communicate with us to look for possible alternatives for Joya de Cerén. Joya de Cerén will re open again in 6 months if you are just interesed in this mayan site. All the other sites are open with no problem. Have a great day and never stop traveling!
