I did a private with this company and I love my experience. I was able to walk around the entire market area and all main points in the city. Booked last minute and was able to schedule my tour on the same day that I booked. Gerado and Eduardo explained everything very well. They are very nice and helpful.

3 of us that had a short layover in San Salvador and in a short notice at our hotel we requested a tour and no cash at hand and Erick Galvez agreed to pick us up at our hotel and we pay with credit card which made it easy and fast. Erick gave us a great tour, very informative and showed us the hidden charms of their city. Thank you Erick for the last minute tour. Hope to see you soon for a volcano tour. 😊😊😊

Erik introduced himself to us at the Patio Maya coffee shop where we stopped to get a drink while waiting for the El Rosario church to open for the afternoon. We were so lucky to have met Erik! He took us on a great free tour of the church (tips based). He told us all about the beautiful history of the church and the art. He was enthusiastic and fun, and always ready to answer our questions. Super knowledgeable about SS, and overall a great person. After the tour of the church, we extended the tour to see the cathedral and crypt, national palace and 2 famous squares. Erik has great stories and tips on shopping, food and beaches. Would definitely want to go on the other tours on our next trip back!

My family and I very much enjoyed the passion and enthusiasm with which Erick recounted and explained the history of El Salvadoran people, the city of San Salvador, the food (especially coffee and pupusas) and the embracing style with which he welcomed my family. You cannot go wrong with a tour from Papagayo Tours! Safety (door-to-door), reliable transportation, warm/friendly tour guides, excellent English/Spanish and key sites within the city of San Salvador (National Palace, El Teatro, San Salvador Cathedral, El Rosario Church). Thank you Papagayo Tours! Thank you Erick!

I was in El Salvador for a couple weeks while on a work trip and ended up doing not one, but three tours with Eric and his family! I ended up doing the Mayan temples tour, as well as hiking Santa Anna Volcano, and a city tour of San Salvador!

On all the tours Eric and his son provided a wealth of knowledge on the history, significance and geography of El Salvador. They both spoke excellent English and were happy to help us communicate with locals if needed or desired.

The Mayan ruins were interesting to see and learn about the history of El Salvador and the many volcanic events there have been in this country. The city tour brought us into the heart of San Salvador where we went into a very beautiful church and learned about the role Christianity plays in this country. We also went into St.Romero Cathedral and learned about Saint Romero and his tragic death. Finally, we ended at Eric's family coffee restaurant where we had some delicious coffee and Papoussas ( a local dish of a tortilla stuff with beans, cheese, and optional pork).

My personal favorite was the Santa Anna volcano hike. This was a relatively easy hike that took about an hour each way over which we gained about 500m. The views along the way were breathtaking and you could see many of the surrounding volcanoes as well as the crater lake. At the top you can look straight down into the heart of the volcano. A truly incredible experience.

Eric and his family we're incredible, and I would highly recommend anyone coming to El Salvador use them as guides.
