Don’t skip El Salvador and don’t skip Gringo Tours. I could not have felt more comfortable using Carlos as my driver through Gringo Tours. He agreed to every single one of my requests. If I needed a picture he stopped tfe car and let me take a picture, if I had a question he gave me a complete answer. The owner of the company was amazing and responded to every question. This was a not feel like a tour company but rather a good friend in another country showing you around. I love El Salvador and Gringo Yours.

We spent 2 days with Robert in Suchitoto during our stay in El Salvador and we loved every minute of it. From enjoying a cup of coffee in his favorite coffee shop and tasting local rums to bird-watching on Lake Suchitoto with his wife Tita, we genuinely felt like we were being shown around by a friend, rather than a professional guide, although his professionalism was on the highest level all the time. It was a great experience and we would wholeheartedly recommend Robert and Gringo tours to anyone visiting El Salvador. —Lola and Marko

My wife and I traveled to Suchitoto for a week. Not knowing much about the country, we decided it would be best to hire a guide, which led us to Gringo Tours. Robert worked with us to come up with an itinerary for the full week. It was so nice having a local expert to plan the best days and times to visit places, suggest things to do that we didn't know existed, and to do all the arranging, paying, and driving so we didn'thave to think about any of that. He also knew the best restaurants and coffee shops. Robert's knowledge of the history of the country was an added bonus. We would not have had the experience we had without Robert and Gringo Tours. We fell in love with the country and its people on this trip. I can't recommend Gringo Tours enough. If you're planning a trip to El Salvador, reaching out to Gringo Tours should be your first item of business.

We were looking for private transport from San Salvador to Copán Ruinas, and Gringo Tours looked like a good option based on the reviews... and they were right. Company owner Robert himself picked us up at the appointed time and drove us on the approximately six-hour journey (with pit stops). He played the role of guide par excellence, and was especially helpful about walking us through the border crossing and then providing us with great dining recommendations in Copán. Robert also helped arrange our transport from Copán to Antigua with another helpful and considerate driver. Most importantly (for us), not only was Robert an excellent driver/guide, but his depth of knowledge about the history and landscape of El Salvador is truly marvelous. We will ABSOLUTELY be booking with Don Roberto again next time we are in El Salvador (and next time, we'll take him up on some of the tourist-y options around Suchitoto). Thank you to Gringo Tours for truly faultless service and su acompañamiento.

Our tour guide, Yoemir, was the most professional, patient, kind, considerate driver throughout our entire trip. He never once got frustrated or annoyed as he accommodated the travel needs of 7 people for 5 days. He made transportation for our trip seamless and we cannot praise him enough for all his hard work. Thank you for making our trip memorable!
