    As someone who has traveled to El Salvador 10 times before, I was surprised how much I learned on this tour. Francis is an excellent guide and was very friendly. I really enjoyed the hike which was about four hours in total. The restaurant we were brought to in lake Coatepeque was delicious and overlooking the water. I was so impressed that I took another tour with this company with Josue to Routa de las Flores and the Santa Teresa hot springs which was also absolutely gorgeous. If you want to learn a lot and have a great time in El Salvador, i can not say enough good things about this company. 10/10 would recommend.

    My tour guide Francis was amazing and made sure we really took our time at all the waterfalls and ate at the best restaurant for lunch! The day couldn’t have been more perfect and the waterfalls were stunning! I would definitely recommend this company this was the second tour I did with them and they were great!

    This was great adventure for my sisters and I. Carlos was fantastic. He provided us with much information, engaged in conversations and very attentive to our needs and wants. We enjoyed so much we schedule a second one the next day for Ruta de las Flores and coffee tasting. Weather wasn’t on our side the second day but it was still great.

    This experience was supreme! We thoroughly enjoyed our tour guide Joshua. He was informative, attentive and knew when to just let us enjoy the moment. We weren't able to go up into the mountains due to the rainy season but we spent a great time at St Teresa Hot Springs it was glorious. Massage the food just the whole vibe in the music was so relaxing. Do the mud bath your skin will feel like butter!!! We definitely want to come back.

    I enjoyed exploring San Salvador with Positive Tours and Francis. He is very knowledgeable about the city, speaks good English and a good driver! We went to downtown, San Salvador volcano and Ruta de las Flores in two days. The country is safe, don’t hesitate to come and visit it, and I highly recommend doing your tour with Francis and Positive Tours. He will also take you to great restaurants to try authentic Salvadoran food.

    This by far has been one of the best tours I’ve had! The views were amazing and the activities were lots of fun. The guides were very nice and accommodating. I felt like I was touring the city with friends. I definitely recommend when visiting El Salvador!

    Excellent tour with Rafael. The Volcano and San Salvador tour is a must do. We had so much fun. Rafael is super nice, knowledgeable, efficient, and knows El Salvador completely. In addition, his driving skills are superb. Muchas Gracias Rafael!

    I booked a 10-day private tour with Salvadorean Tours. Eduardo, the trip designer did a great job on my itinerary. My guide Eduardo was fantastic! We covered many volcanoes, national parks, archeological sites, culture routes, turtle trip, scenic drive and boat ride, amazingly beautiful. The turtle capture trip is very unique, informative and meaningful. I’m planning to come back to do more and see baby turtles go back to the sea. The Fonseca boat tour is unexpectedly beautiful, different views than my previous visit to tropical islands. I’ve traveled around 90 countries and worked with quite a few tour guides. Eduardo’s passion, knowledge, thoughtfulness is definitely among the top. My El Salvador trip is truly memorable. Highly recommend Salvadorean Tours and highly recommend my guide Eduardo!

    The best tour we did in El Salvador! Wish we did this our first day and would’ve done all our tours with this company. They were flexible with our pickup and drop off locations and great communicators. Tour guide was well informed and very interactive/flexible. We were able to add things if we wanted to not do some activities that we weren’t up for. A must if in El Salvador!

    What an amazing tour! Osmaro picked me up at my hotel in El Tunco and was kind enough to bring me to my new hotel in San Salvador after the tour ended. He is such a nice guy and is extremely knowledgeable about all things El Salvador. Also, he is very accommodating. I wasn’t able to eat at my hotel before the tour and Osmaro brought me somewhere to eat breakfast and see a nice view of the volcano before our hike. He does the tour at your own pace and now I can definitely say I have a new friend in El Salvador. Thank you for showing me your beautiful country and I can’t wait to come back!

    This is the most friendly tour operator I have ever had. Francis was so knowledgeable and helpful throughout the entire time we spent with him. He helped our entire family to hike the Santa Ana volcano considering that we had minors and seniors. Francis gave us tremendous recommendation about where to eat and where to go. This is the best experience with ever had. Thank you Francis…

    Alfredo was genuinely friendly and knowledgeable. Our hike and tour was AMAZING! Alfredo picked us up from our hotel and gave us a wonderful El Salvadorian history and geography lesson, while driving to our hiking starting point. We hiked until we met the waterfalls and then we were able to get into the water. We were not brave enough to jump, but Alfredo ensured that we had a fun time anyway. We literally had a photo shoot in the waterfalls. Alfredo was such a gentleman, he offered to hold our bags and ensured that we had enough pictures and video to create an album of our trip. After the hike we enjoyed lunch at a restaurant along the black beach. The waves were so large, that they met us at the table. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal and conversations with him. After lunch we stopped by a local vendor and obtained fresh coconut water. If you only have time for one activity while visiting El Salvador, ensure that THIS is the activity you engage in. The Wet and Wild: Tamanique Waterfalls and world-famous El Tunco Beach activity is phenomenal. Thank you for making our trip so special Alfredo.

    It was a fun Full day of volcano viewing with visits to quaint small towns with a little birding on the side. Birding was not on the itinerary but when I expressed an interest, my guide said he had his spotting scope in the car!
