Francis is the best guide ever!! I regret not spending more time in El Salvador but when I'm back we are rocking all the rest of his tours lol. He is thoughtful and knowledgeable and passionate about Indigenous history. He is also cheerful and sensitive to his guests' needs. We were very happy to have him as our guide. Also his instagram is LIT. Thank you Francis!!

Francis was an outstanding guide! He did a phenomenal job of leading an enjoyable and informative full day tour of Maya sites throughout El Salvador. If you are at all interested in learning more about the history and culture of El Salvador, and particularly of the Maya and indigenous communities, I cannot recommend this tour highly enough. And make sure to ask Francis plenty of questions along the way because he does a masterful job of answering them!

This was my second tour through the beautiful western part of El Salvador. La Joya de Ceren is an unique site as they have found relatively intact Mayan structures that give a glimpse into the daily life of the inhabitants. Santa Ana is a nice colonial city with a lovely central plaza. The tour then takes you to Tazumal, a Mayan site with architecture allegedly inspired from that of Teotihuacan, located in a verdant park. Lunch with panoramic views of the volcanic lake of Coatepeque. A lovely and relaxed trip with an excellent guide (Francis). Highly recommended.
