      Reliable Tour Agency
      I only had a limited time in San Salvador. I contacted Salvadorean Tour Company to give me a custom city tour. They were very prompt in replying to me and giving me exact details of a proposed tour. On the day of my tour, their tour guide greeted me at the airport as committed. We saw everything that was listed in the itinerary and at the end of the day I was dropped off at the location I had specified. My tour guide Eduardo was friendly and very knowledgeable. I would not hesitate to use Salvadorean Tour Company again should I come back to El Salvador.

      Good experience
      It was a very nice tour. The guide Alfredo Diaz is very professional, knowledgeable, and friendly. He allowed adequate time for us to enjoy each place of interest. He also accommodated my lunch preference and took me to a restaurant with very tasty pupusas and reasonable price. I recommend him to others who would like to visit San Salvador.

      It was great! The day was full of wonderful sites and activities. The guide was very informative and timed each visit to ensure we got to do everything by the time someone in our group had to be back to his hotel.

      Excellent trip to Suchitoto
      The tourist guide is friendly and knows the subject matter very well well. He has been very patient in explaining the history of the country to me, past and present. He is also very considerate in allowing me to take a quick lunch as I did not eat much in my breakfast.

      Connecting with history
      What an unforgettable journey! Adonis, our guide, made the day truly special with his deep knowledge and welcoming nature. His bilingual skills ensured everyone felt engaged throughout. The lunch spot in Santa Ana was a pleasant surprise, adding to the overall enjoyment. Exploring the ancient Maya ruins was truly moving, especially for those with Salvadoran heritage, offering a personal connection to our past. Despite some time constraints due to traffic, the tour was incredibly fulfilling. I only wish we had more time at each site. Nevertheless, it was a fantastic day trip that I'd eagerly do again. Highly recommended for anyone seeking a meaningful connection with history.

      Fantastic.
      Alfredo Diaz is an excellent guide. He is very knowledgeable, friendly, respectful and very professional. My wife and I had a wonderful experience with the information that he provided us about his country history, culture and all the wonderful places that he took us. The place where he took us for lunch in San Salvador was amazing. The food was fantastic. Thank you again Alfredo for your wonderful service. Que viva bukele.

    I loved this tour so much. In recent decades, San Salvador has garnered a less than sterling reputation. However, El Salvador's capital is really a lovely Central American city with a number of leafy, green neighborhoods in the west and lovely architecture in the historic city center. Eduardo was my tour guide, and he could not have been more accommodating, kind, and knowledgeable about his city and country. I so appreciated his special insights, and would be so happy to travel with him the next time I am in the area. He would even offer tours to Honduras and Guatemala. Hoping to return someday and take him up on the offer. You're in great hands with Eduardo and Salvadorean Tours in the oft underrated city.

    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!!!

    THIS REVIEW IS FOR
    STOP OVER EL SALVADOR by ASOTUR
    offered at the international airport!

    We arrived at San Salvador International airport with half a day to spare before our onward flight to Belize

    We wanted to see San Salvador and while trying to pass immigration we have been recommended to check with
    STOP OVER EL SALVADOR (Office at the arrival area) first. This was very good advice.

    We booked a tour for 2 for half day and received a VIP Service we never expected.
    A well conducted city tour with a private car and guide.
    The guide was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic to show us the city and explain the recent history.

    We felt soo well taken care.
    Highly recommended. I would even suggest to add enough stop over time when passing San Salvador just to do the tour.

    We had a 24 stop-over in El Salvador and booked a private guide with Salvadorean Tours. Our guide Eduardo was great! He picked us up at the airport and then drove us to our hotel so that we could check in and change for the trip up to the volcano. Unfortunately it was cloudy and rainy, so no views, but as a wonderful bonus, Eduardo turned out to be a fellow birdwatcher! He even had his binoculars and a local birding book in his car! So we concentrated on the beautiful greenery around the volcano park and managed to see several endemic birds. Then we headed into the city for a tour (having dropped off my husband at the hotel as he was feeling poorly - Eduardo was ready to organise a doctor, but the hotel concierge took on that task). The sun came out and Eduardo took me to the old town-centre of San Salvador, which is undergoing extensive infrastructure upgrades. Without a guide, I would have found it a bit frightening but Eduardo seemed to know everyone and certainly knew all the complicated history of this fascinating and somewhat troubled nation. Then I had to buy some extra-special coffee and of course Eduardo knew where to go! We can highly recommend this professional and friendly guiding company!

    My cousin and I had a big interest in what happened to Archbishop Marino and hector took us to the church and to the crypt and it gave us the background and the history of his execution….sad story… also he took us up to the volcano and we had a great panoramic view of the city.

    I went on this tour with Adonis on my most recent visit home in San Salvador. I decided to book a tour for fun to explore downtown since I was traveling alone. It was Adonis and myself and it was a lot of fun, I was afraid it was going to be awkward but it was the opposite, I felt like I was hanging out with a friend (who is incredible knowledgeable of our culture) it was laid back, super interesting and something I would absolutely do again. I am looking forward for my next experience when I am back again.

    This tour was done by Hector Adonis [he goes by Adonis.] Adonis says he is one of the, if not THE, youngest tour guide in El Salvador. Very nice guy. Very knowledgeable, speaks English very well. This tour was very laid back. It was just me and this couple from Canada, who were down here to surf. I have to be honest, I love that these tours are very small and intimate. They are more personalized this way, which I really like. Also, all of the tours I had in El Salvador were great…one of the few places I have been to where they DON’T drop you off at a gift shop. They just focus on their city and its rich culture. Also, the people of El Salvador are extremely friendly.

    This tour focuses on the history of San Salvador and takes you around to the main 3 squares in the Centro Historico. These plazas have such beautiful buildings and statues, and they are so full of people - and the best part, they are dancing and playing music. They are all just celebrating life. We were also able to tour the new library that just opened a week ago. This is NOT part of the tour but they invited us to come in and explore the building. It is a very beautiful and state-of-the-art.

    Thank you Adonis for taking us on a tour and making sure that all of our questions were answered and just being so friendly and knowledgeable.
