My wife and I scheduled a 12 hour layover at San Salvador while traveling back to the United States from Costa Rica. We wanted to see San Salvador and experience the food and culture of the country. We booked the tour online after reading some of the reviews. Rafael was our guide for the tour, which lasted approximately eight hours. He speaks both Spanish and English, so language was not an issue for us. We were not disappointed, and only wished we had more time in the beautiful country of El Salvador! Rafael took us to the volcano for an easy hike through the beautiful park. We also toured the historic areas of San Salvador, and the new developments in the city. We stopped at a local restaurant and enjoyed some of the traditional food which was delicious. The country was beautiful and the people were friendly and helpful. This included the immigration officials at the airport and the local law enforcement officers who guided us in and out of the airport. I highly recommend this tour and Rafael as a guide. My wife and I plan to return and spend more time in the country!

Great lay over your that I would recommend to anyone coming here esp family and friends. Eduardo felt like a friend I’ve known for a long time and had a great sense of humor. I felt safe and I learned so much! This man really knows his stuff. He went above and beyond for me and I definitely will take tours with him next time I’m in El Salvador again hopefully with friends this time! Thank you for showing me your country 🤗

My family and I really enjoyed this layover tour of San Salvador with Osmaro. After we landed, we were guided through customs and met with Osmaro, who was our driver and tour guide. He took us to see the volcanic crater, the downtown, and best of all to eat pupusas! It was a private tour so we were able to take as long as we wanted in each location. He timed it so that we made the most of our layover and got to see a lot of the city. He was very professional and knowledgeable and gave us a lot of historical information. I highly recommend taking this tour with Osmaro if you ever have a stopover in San Salvador.

The best option to enjoy some hours in San Salvador while visiting fascinating places and listening to the interesting stories of your guide. Astonishing views from San Salvador Volcano.
Osmaro was the best guide possible and made the visit something really worthy.
Thanks a lot again!

I’ve always wanted to visit El Salvador and I finally go the chance on a long layover I had. I was traveling with my girlfriend who very worried about safety in Central America. She felt safe throughout the whole tour. We booked the tour the day before and sent our info to the company, they where able to expedite the immigration and customs process and left the airport within 10min! Our tour guide picked us up at the airport gates and took us to an amazing volcano. While on route to the volcano he gave us a brief yet detailed history of the whole country! After our trip to the volcano we made our way to the historical center and got to see some cool architecture and local culture. I will definitely come back to El Salvador and do a longer tour with this company.

My husband and I had about eight hours to spend in San Salvador, and wanted to make sure we saw the crater and spent some time in the city before catching our next flight. We had an awesome time with Rafael - he was warm and educational and took us to the crater, the botanic gardens, an authentic San Salvadorian lunch (at our request), and gave us an amazing tour of Old Town. We spent time walking through markets, looking at historic sites, and (even better) meeting some local artists that were working on an art installation or sharing their craft with others.

Rafael clearly loves where he is from and made our short stay in San Salvador more enjoyable. Because of him, we now know of several locations we may want to visit in the future! I'd highly recommend taking a tour with him. :)
