Great tour experience in San Salvador
, Jul 2021
Worth every penny! I wish we would have done this tour at the beginning of our trip rather than the end. Antonio, our guide, was fantastic, super knowledgeable and super friendly. The ride in the van was very comfortable and Antonio went out of his way to accommodate us when someone in our group got sick. He actually walked us over to the nearest pharmacy and helped us find the appropriate meds! Antonio walked us to the key sights and shared a ton of knowledge along the way. Maybe one of the best parts was that Antonio knows a lot about the great places in El Salvador to visit, including the lesser know sights and activities, and especially the best restaurants! That knowledge alone makes this tour well worth the price. I would recommend this tour and specifically Antonio any day of the week, it was great!

Great cultural and historic day tour

Eduardo met us at our hotel promptly to pick us up for the half day tour which began at 830 am. He put us at ease with his great knowledge about El Salvador his overall friendlyness. As he drove us towards plaza Barriors, he reassured us that El Salvador is becoming a safer place to visit. We parked and began the walking tour we headed into the beautiful Iglesia el Rosario. The architecture and art inside the church is breathtaking. That was worth the tour alone. We then headed to Catedral Metropolitana where St Monsenor Romero's cript is. Even if you are not a religious person, you owe it to yourself to view these historical places. El Palacio Nacional was also a very unexpected gem of a place to see. For the price of only 3 dollars a person, you can see one of the most beautiful and historical places where a lot of El Salvadors politics took place. Extremely pleased and thankful Eduardo led us in a great tour and would recommend to anyone looking to explore the towns history.
