We had an awesome tour of Antigua with our tour guide Gabriela (Gabby)! She was so patient, kind, and accommodating ! Very knowledgable and efficient. Gabby catered to our every need, even stopping on the way to Antigua to get some delicious tasting papusas from a roadside vendor. Antigua is a beautiful Colonial City and well worth the long trip from SanSalvador. Gabriela expertly navigated a tremendous traffic jam at the Guatemalan border on our return, getting us safely back to San Salvador in a timely fashion. (Gabby vs. Goliath! Ha ha...) Thanks for a wonderful day Gabby !!

If you want to see both El Salvador and Guatamala this is the tour for you. Francis made this tour amazing by guiding us through both countries. His passion for his home country and knowledge about border crossings made this a fun and stress free adventure. Francis has perfect English and Spanish and by the end of the tour you will feel as though he is part of your family. This tour gives you a lot and is very affordable. Francis will tailor your adventure to what you want and will make sure that you have an amazing time.

This was an incredible tour! Josue R. is a proper legend. He not only is super knowledgeable, nice but really accommodating. When told that I would needed to be back in Salvador at 9PM for my flight, he arranged a quick pick up at a rest stop so I could make my flight that evening. Antigua is beautiful and worth the day trip and you can’t do better than with this company and guide. I couldn’t have done it without them!

This was my third tour with Josue. It was a very long day spent in the car, but with Josue as my guide it was a tolerable drive. I can not say enough good things about him as a guide, but more importantly as a person. He is an amazing human being and it made my vacation all that much better.

It was founded in the 16th century and served as the colonial capital of the Spanish empire in Central America until 1773, when it was devastated by a series of earthquakes and replaced by Guatemala City as the capital.
