First and foremost, Benjamine (Benji) is an incredible tour guide. He knows how to read his guests and structures the tour around their interests. The knowledge that Benji presents is incredible. He takes you to safe places to stop for food or to stretch. He avoids tourist eating areas and took us to a Mercado which was a good insight into how people shop.

Behind the scenes, Mayra ensures that your trip is on time and she is always available. I made a friendship in El Salvador and Mayra coordinated two pick-up spots with no problem.

The city tour was insightful and Benji took us to the main points but also took us to the local areas where we could have a drink. You have to be open-minded and not expect something luxurious if you want an authentic experience.

In short. The attention to detail, service, and knowledge makes this an amazing experience. I do not know how someone else would feel if they are expecting luxury and "hip" spots. I am sure Benji could have taken you, but that would be a waste of time and an amazing experience.

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.

Outstanding Tour
Jan. 2020
I had a 4hr tour with Eduardo. It was such an amazing experience. He was very punctual and friendly. I booked a group tour as a solo traveler, but ended up being the only person on his tour. So, in essence, it was a private tour. After taking a short time to get to know me and to let me know about himself, our tour officially started. He began telling me about the road we were on and its historical significance. He also found ways to show me how Salvadorian culture is truly intertwined with the rest of the world. We walked through the old part of San Salvador, talked about the architecture, and the culture now versus then. Eduardo was very engaging and ensured that he didn't just talk at me; it was more like a conversation with a buddy. He took me through the square--saying hello to friends he's made over the years. It was very personal! It was like an old friend was showing me around town. The tour focuses primarily around the square of the old town, and it has so many stories about it! Eduardo is such a good storyteller. Eduardo is also a very talented photographer. He knew when to suggest photos and at what angles. My 4hr tour ended up being extended not only because I told him I had extra time that day, but also because of traffic.

Please keep in mind that the traffic in El Salvador can get very bad. Eduardo, and really all tour guides, can not control the traffic. So, even though you might have short tours, don't stack your days too heavily because traffic will slow you down.

Excellent private tour
Oct. 2017 • Couples
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!
