          A Breathtaking, Incredible 4-Day Experience from Start to Finish with Joshy and William (Multiple Excursions)!!!
          This was the ABSOLUTE BEST experience ever!!! We were in El Salvador for about 4 days. Therefore, we engaged in nearly EVERY tour offered by this company. Our wonderful guide was Joshy accompanied by our lovely and safe driver, William. They were an incredible team!!! From the moment we stepped out the airport, to the moment we stepped back inside was an incredible experience! My partner and I can't even narrow down our favorite experience because each component was remarkable! However, visiting Lake Coatepeque for lunch and jet skiing provided the most remarkable nature view! Visiting the Hot Springs for massages and relaxation was an impeccable experience. Truthfully, the entire tour could leave you full of tears of happiness. Joshy and William introduced themselves as strangers but we all left feeling like best friend/family! The amount of history that Joshy was able to provide throughout was unbelievable! I have a deeper love and respect for the residents of El Salvador! Joshy and William were so attentive to our questions and comments! They were so considerate of our experience and helped take pictures so we could embrace the entire moment. My birthday was that Friday. Joshy and William surprised me with balloons, flowers, and a sweet treat at the most phenomenal indoor/outdoor restaurant with a garden and coffee farm that I can't quite recall (sorry, there were soooo many activities we indulged in). I was in tears from this thoughtful experience! We ALWAYS felt safe and in wonderful, caring hands with both Joshy and William! We could not have requested a better team! They went above and beyond every single step of the way!!! It takes special people to create a thriving and loving experience! We felt as if we belonged in this magnificent country thanks to Joshy, William, and the abundance of kind people we met along the way. Joshy and William, thank you for a breathtaking experience! From the volcanoes, to the lake, to the springs--ALL OF IT, THANK YOU!! We thoroughly appreciated you all's recommendations as well! ❤️ I wouldn't trade this experience for the world! In fact, we're probably going to return within the next 2 years. I'm recommending everyone to book with this company!!!

          Awesome tour
          Great tour. Guide spoke English so that helped us a ton. Being from the states we have heard a bunch about El Salvador. We felt safe the entire trip.

          Wonderful Day Tour
          Solo trip with guide Lisbeth and driver Alessandro. An epic experience through four days with the. This went through a small colonial like town. Opted to do a boat trip to an island spot where got off and walked to a cave. Overall, this trip has been wonderful thanks to my two steady companions in tow. If coming to visit El Salvador use EC tours. Go with Lisbeth. Will treat you like family.

          Mayan Discovery
          Fantastic outing to three mayan sites as well as a volcanic and caldera view lunch. Tour was with EC and guide Lisbeth and driver Alessandro. Both were superb and made sure that the drive was seamless and the outing informative and fun. Lisbeth is a wonderful guide and made what would normally be a boring outing that much more engaging. Overall a great day and would recommend this for those who have a fascination with all things ancient.

          Did this tour with guide Lisbeth and driver Alessandro. From the start of the booking exp and airport pickup to the day trip was seamless. This is a very professional company that kept me in the loop as to when things would happen. Lisbeth is an excellent guide. Very personable and knowledgeable. We walked around the center of San Salvador and that was a fantastic experience. Was accommodating when I wanted to walk around the local market area. If you want to explore this country EC is the way to go. Lisbeth is the best!

          Very well-organized and fun private 4 day tour
          I traveled solo to El Salvador for 4 days in April 2023. Based on their great reviews, I contacted EC Tours. Vanessa and Yesenia listened to what I wanted to do and created the perfect itinerary for me. They were very responsive and great to deal with prior to the trip. Once I arrived, I spent 4 days with Alex and Lisbeth (Merari), who were so kind, friendly, fun, professional, and knowledgeable. I visited the Mayan archaeological sites, hiked the Santa Ana volcano, and did the Ruta de las Flores. On my last morning I had some extra time, so EC also arranged a city tour of San Salvador for me at the last minute. All of the activities were well-organized and interesting. I truly feel like I got to see and do so much in just 4 short days. But the best part of the trip was Alex and Lisbeth, who went above and beyond several times to ensure that I had the best possible experience in their country. For example, we got back earlier than expected one afternoon so they took me (and accompanied me) to the National Anthropology Museum, after I had mentioned that I wished I had more time so I could visit it. They didn’t have to do that - it wasn’t an included activity and they could have just gone home for the day. But they are excellent at what they do and take so much pride and care in their jobs, their main concern was that I got to do everything I wanted to do while in El Salvador. I cannot gush enough about how amazing these 2 people are - it was like I was hanging out with good friends for 4 days! I highly recommend EC Tours and will definitely use them again on my next trip to this amazing country!

          Amazing Family Vacation!
          EC tours is awesome, we highly recommend them for any type of visit. We are a family with 2 young kids. We vacationed in El Salvador with them in 2022 and had the best trip we've ever had. This time we visited Nicaragua for a week. Ms. Yesenia was our guide from start to finish this time, she was awesome. She planned our itinerary when we first inquired then led our whole trip. She was so informative and helpful especially with our kids who can be a handful. EC tours is great because they customize your vacation for the type of group and their likes/dislikes/needs. They even book your hotels. They drive you everywhere in a comfortable van. Hotel pickup and dropoff included. Price is great. Highlights were a natural volcanic spring, volcano boarding down an active volcano, swimming in a volcanic lake, and zip lining over a coffee plantation. We tell everyone in the states how great they are. Loved Ms. Yesenia and EC.

          Really great
          This was a GREAT tour! My best friend and I spent 3 days in El Salvador over a holiday weekend and wanted to see as much as we could while we were there. Our first night, our plans for Saturday fell through. Literally less than 12 hours before we were supposed to be picked up. Not only was I able to book with EC, but they responded on WhatsApp to confirm within an hour. Excellent and fast customer service. Ricardo was our guide and he was excellent. Funny guy, super knowledgeable, told us about the history as well as general life and culture in El Salvador. The ruins were incredible and we learned so much! Unfortunately we didn’t get to see the volcano because of weather (it was so foggy!) but we still had a great time. We did another EC tour the next day and that was also great. I recommend this company for tours, and I really enjoyed Ricardo as our guide.

          Shout out to Joshy!
          We did this tour on our first day in El Salvador. We stayed in an AirBnB and they were able to work with us on picking us up at our location. We are so happy we did this. Joshy was our wonderful tour guide and interpreter. She is very personable and charismatic, very easy to talk to. We got lucky as it was a mostly clear enough day to see the mountains and volcanoes. We enjoyed learning about local history and visiting the Mayan sites. The restaurant we went to was delicious with beautiful scenery of the lake.

          We enjoyed our tour with Lisbeth. She gave a thorough and entertaining tour of the city. The time just flew by. She also gave us great recommendations of where to eat and other available tours.

          The Best Tour Company in El Salvador
          The process to set up the tour and the tour itself was super personalized. They catered to our needs, they were very responsive, and the drivers/tour guides were fantastic. They made our experience in El Salvador the best and I couldn't imagine a better experience.

          Such an amazing experience- Joshy and William are super friendly, knowledgeable and fun to be around. I had a wonderful time. It was perfect- Joshy knows her history and culture, and William knows his way around. I was able to learn so much about the country’s history, current state- from two locals who grew up in a very difficult time. I highly recommend these two gems- and their company. It was fun, safe, and my only regret- not having more time to spend with them!

          Tamanique Waterfall
          I spent a lot of time with William who is absolutely hilarious. He picked me up from the airport the night I landed in El Salvador. From then he picked me up the morning of my hike at Santa Ana Volcano and after the hike with Joshy and Harrison, we all went to lunch. From lunch they did the long drive from Lago de Coatepeque to Playa Majahual to drop me off at my hotel. Two days after my hike, William picked me up and took me to Tamanique Waterfall where we hiked and swam. We went to dinner after and walked around Surf City. William is a wonderful driver and tour guide. I am so grateful for all of his hospitality and patience in me wanting to go all over the place.

          A beautiful walk
          I got picked up by Allesandro who was so kind and funny. However, my tour was given to me by Joselyne. She was such a joy to be around. Honestly it was like I've known her my whole life. So easy to talk to and got along so quickly. She was so informative and passionate about her job which made it even more interesting for me. I got to see so much in a short amount of time and the pupusa tasting at the end was the perfect ending to a wonderful afternoon with Joselyne.

        I highly recommend this tour to anyone who wants to have an authentic experience in El Salvador and get away from the bustle and touristic areas of San Salvador. Definitely book this tour on a weekend if you can because the towns have street markets and food festivals on weekends only. Only my sister and I had booked the tour so we got a private tour by our guide Guillermo. If you can request Guillermo, you should because he is extremely knowledgeable, patient, friendly and helpful. His English is excellent and he was really flexible asking us what we wanted to do but also making sure to take us to the main sites at each town. He was really great at explaining about each town and the history and we asked him so many questions about El Salvador in general and he answered all of them thoroughly. It felt like talking to a friend! I liked that he didn’t mind stopping whenever we needed a bathroom, shopping or food break. He also suggested different foods and drinks we should try which I appreciated. I highly recommend this tour with Guillermo!

        I used EC Tours 3 times this past week while exploring El Salvador (Ruta De Las Flores, Suchitoto, and Santa Ana Volcano/Lake Coatepeque). Edwin the owner is amazing and responds promptly to everything. He set everything up and will cater tours to your liking. The 2 guides Rene & Stephanie were amazing. They are a wealth of knowledge about their country and you can see how much pride they have which in turn makes you really love El Salvador as well. I would recommend using them even if it's just for the airport transfer.

        Edwin and Eduardo were terrific in communication via email just before my trip to El Salvador. From answering all my questions and giving great advice, I couldn't have asked for better service. Estefany provided great tours of San Salvador and El Boqueron and was the utmost professional. Ruta de Las Flores was the definite highlight for me. Carlos' and Edwin's skilled driving through the city got us everywhere with little trouble. On time to the minute each morning as well. Our final lunch of enjoying pupusas near the volcano overlooking the city was a real treat. I can't say anything negative in the least, and will recommend EC Tours to everyone I know.

        The tour took us out of the city into smaller towns and villages in the northwest of El Salvador. The driver William and guide Wendy were extremely amiable and although their English was not great they were able to provide the small group with a much information and take us to some charming communities that we would not have seen orherwise. We heard young children in Nahuizalco singing in Nahuat pipil, and visited Juayua town. Ataco. We also had lunch at a coffee estate and enjoyed tasting their brews. A very memorable exposure to traditional rural communities where the old languages and ways of life are being celebrated.

        Solo traveller, first day in El Salvador, a little nervous. From minute one my wonderful guide Melissa put me at ease. Punctual, efficient, a Salvadorian Wikipedia of knowledge, she knows everything about everything, chatty, funny, friendly, with a genuine desire to show off the beauty of her country to the world.
        Fluent English, best guide experience I've ever had (I've traveled all over Central America).
        She even texted me last night with a restaurant recommendation.
        After the tour, I felt I made a friend.
        Worth noting that the driver Renee was also excellent, he is also a tour guide and would chip in every now and again with some nugget of information.
        Ruta de las flores is a great tour for those interested in culture, food, coffee (you will not believe how beautiful the coffee plantation is, orchids hang from the ceiling of the cafe), art, crafts, history.
        5 stars!

        Absolutely high quality, fun and professional tour with guide Estefany! This isn't just walking around and looking at things - you are actually learning about history, economy and culture, which is SO important when traveling to another country. I had such a great time and the tour was very well organized. We got to see many different beautiful towns, murals, markets, culture centers, everyday life scenes, coffee plants galore, nature, stores, try restaurants/local cuisine, and I felt immersed in local culture. When I travel, I don't ever do tours because I like to figure things out for myself but I highly recommend EC Tours because I would never have gotten this much info/sightseeing by myself! I also recommend the San Salvador capital walking tour!

        Melissa was our guide on two separate (private) El Salvador tours. She was so friendly and accommodating! Both of our drivers were also wonderful. We learned so much on the tours and found that the itineraries were quite flexible, allowing us to spend extra time at the places we really loved. Melissa has a ton of knowledge and some really creative ideas to help you enjoy her country. Hold a giant snake at the reptile museum and get a "selfie coffee" at the coffee farm cafe. :) Don't skip El Salvador!!

        Me, my wife and my 5 yr old son contacted Edwin looking to see the Mayan archeological sites. Edwin suggested a two day tour, on day one visiting the Mayan temples and day two visiting some awesome colonial towns, taking a coffee plantation tour and visiting the hot springs. Let me tell you, if I could do it all over again I would. Edwin and Melissa picked us up at our place and gave us two days of an awesome adventure. Extremely safe, very accommodating and very knowledgeable. Edwin made us feel like family and Melissa was amazing and my son LOVED her. Can not wait to come back and book more tours with EC Tours, if your visiting El Salvador and need a guide don’t hesitate to contact Edwin with EC tours

        I have spent two of my last three days touring this amazing country with EC. They have been so incredible to work with and just a fantastic company!! Today I spent the day with David touring Las Rutas de Flores. No one else was signed up for the tour so I had David to myself and thoroughly enjoyed all of the information! I am not good with Spanish anymore and he did a fantastic job doing it in Spanish and English to help me improve and comprehend what he was saying. I would definitely recommend this tour and probably everything EC does but haven’t been on all of them yet! Thank you David for an incredible trip so far!!!
