          Avoid at all costs
          I have to rate this honestly. I paid $295.00 for this tour and he made us take an Uber and meet him at a gas station 20 minutes away after saying we had pickup and dropoff transportation. I confirmed the night before and he said I'll be there at 2 am! He said I'll reimburse you for this part- never did. Then we arrive to the hike and he says okay, bye. I thought I was paying for a full tour and all I got was a ride to the park and I paid extra for it? He also said he'd supply lanterns for each person. We got one small flashlight between us. I would not recommend this tour to anyone. Thank God I had someone with me for once, because I'm usually a solo female traveler and this would have made me incredibly uneasy having to meet someone at a random gas station at 2 am. I'm sorry but I have had AMAZING experiences with tours in El Salvador, just not this one. I absolutely do not recommend, incredibly unprofessional service.

          10/10 - perfect!
          Marvel organized the perfect tour for us! We wanted to do the camping at Conchagua and take the ferry to Nicaragua directly on the next day. It all went very smoothly and all the company’s and drivers knew about us, because Marvel contacted them before. Would really recommend asking him to organize a tour.

          Amazing Tour to Conchagua Volcano. I was nervous about the overnight camping, but my tour guide made it so easy. He made sure I had everything I needed, and the transfer there and up to the volcano was seamless. I’m so glad I didn’t skip this tour and got to see the amazing sunrise! The beach day after the second day was just as great. My guide was so good and went above and beyond and answered all my questions about El Salvador! BOOK THIS TOUR!

          Sunrise Hike Santa Ana
          It was an great tour with one of the best sunrises I saw. The view was amazing! Our guide was really kind and explained us everything about the history and other volcanos around and the coffee plantage. It was the birthday of one of the group members, the guide stopped at a market to take a cake for her. That’s was really nice from him! I can recommend this tour.

          Terrible Experience - Choose Another Company
          The only reason we gave it 2 stars and not 1 is because they got us from point A to point B but the experience was absolutely terrible. We scheduled this service a few weeks in advance and the day before pick-up they changed the time from 4 AM to 12 AM and the day-of pick up they changed it again to 11 PM. This put us in a tough position with our hostel accommodations because we had then unnecessarily paid for an extra night where we were staying and also didn’t have a room reserved for that evening/ morning where we were going. In person they were rushed, rude, took several wrong turns, blasted music at full volume for our overnight ride and never turned on the air conditioning. They nearly refused to bring us to our actual destination once we were “close enough” in the destination city. It was a disaster. I would not recommend this service to anyone.

          The most beautiful birthday experience!!!
          Wow, where do I even begin?? This was the most amazing experience, especially on my birthday. We were picked up around 1:30am from El Sunzal and started the hike around 4am (with a group but not too big but you feel extra safe) and reached the summit around 5:30am in time for the most beautiful sunrise I've ever seen (You are able to go your own pace as they have guides in the front, middle and back) The views of the starry night sky, the lit up cities, everything was IMMACULATE (there are multiple viewpoints) Just a warning that it gets veryyy windy at the top so bring a light jacket! By the time we got down from the hike, there were many vehicles entering and I've seen reviews about the trails being packed during the day so this was perfect as it was only our group on the trail at the time. I also have to give a huge shout out to Marbel as he was the most communicative and helpful guide that we were blessed to experience this with. After we finished, we had breakfast at the cutest little cafe with also an amazing view of other volcanoes and Marbel surprised me with a cake! I would highly highly HIGHLY recommend booking this as it is something that I will never forget.

          Great out-of-the-city excursion.
          This hike was a great, short trek through forest vegetation up to the fully exposed volcano summit (2300m/7500ft). The trail is rocky and moderately strenuous. Views from various stopping points as well as at the summit were beautiful. The geology of the volcano and its lake were fascinating. Not for the out of shape visitor. Minimum of two hours up and one down moving at a constant, steady pace. The trail gets very crowded later in the day - best to leave early and head back down early.

          Santa Ana Volcano hike
          We had an amazing time on our tour of Santa Ana Volcano! We had a good driver who was right on time. We don’t speak Spanish so they requested a guide that speaks English so we were able to learn about the natural park. The lake was beautiful and the water was warm. Great experience would recommend to others!

          All-around good guy!
          Marbel is such a nice guy! He is super helpful and chill and is happy to organize a variety of experiences and travel arrangements. He helped me find a rental car in El Tunco, and also booked my shuttle from El Tunco to La Ceiba as well as my return shuttle from La Ceiba to Leon. He is knowledgeable about the options in the area. Make sure you ask for all the necessary fees in advance, a lot of border crossings have different requirements (and require cash! In various currencies!) so you’ll want all that info. He is quite trustworthy and honest.

          Shuttle El Tunco to Santa Ana
          Marvel was a great driver, he was super friendly, gave great recommendations and let us know that he would be running late because of traffic.

          Great tour with a fantastic guide!
          Really nice experience. The guide is local and speaks English and knows everything about the city and culture. He drove us to the Vulcano and the Lake, where we enjoyed lunch together and had a nice talk. The volcano hike is very beautiful and worth it. The lake has a nice view and the water is a perfect temperature to have a dip. I would totally recommend this tour if you want a full day planned with nice activities!

        Miguel was an excellent guide, thoughtful and informative, not only about Mayan culture and history, but also about more current histories of indigenous people in El Salvador. Joya de Cerén was fascinating as the "Pompeii" of the Maya, and Miguel took enough time explaining the site to us. We also enjoyed the other two Mayan sites San Andres and Tazumal as well as a scenic lunch overlooking the lake in Caldera De Coatepequ before heading back to our hotel. Our drive Julio was very smooth and careful. AA+++
