Maya Route Tour
I had the absolute best time taking this tour! My guide, Benjamin, was very kind and personable. He had extensive knowledge of all of the sites and really went out of his way to make sure that I was taken care of. It was very cool learning about the history behind each site, especially Joya De Ceren. I highly recommend! Visit El Salvador!

Top notch Mayan experience in El Salvador!
Aug. 2021 • Couples
Amazing customer service! Antonio was an exceptionally knowledgeable guide, who made us feel at safe and at home. The tour was very well planned out and he even accommodated a few stops for me to buy treats I was craving. I will definitely return and use this tour company, there’s so much to see in this beautiful country.

Unprofessional
When the driver arrived and we were in the
Car before leaving the hotel I asked what places we are going to visit he said 3 places
And I said no it suppose to be 4 and he said that 1 was closed. I said why nobody informed me about it. He started to give all
Kind of excuses. So I left and call the office
And told them how I felled about it and demand my money back. Be smart and don't
Use salvadoreantour.

Good morning and thank you for your message. We are sorry this happend to you but the closure of the mayan sites is not in our control. We did send you an email as we did with all the guests traveling with us that will be affected by this change by the Ministrt of Culture. It is unfortunate you did not see this notificaron on time and that you were not able to communicate with us to look for possible alternatives for Joya de Cerén. Joya de Cerén will re open again in 6 months if you are just interesed in this mayan site. All the other sites are open with no problem. Have a great day and never stop traveling!
