    very unique archaeological site. One of the curators at the museum was very kind and gave me walk around the site and told me all about it. This is the only village of this size that can be seen today and was discovered by accident in the 1980s I believe, definitely worth a visit.

    My tour guide Mr. Alfredo Diaz is a very dedicated person, he paid attention to every detail throughout the tour, he gave me a detailed introduction of the sites and I appreciated the fact that Mr. Alfredo Diaz has a wealth of knowledge about history and natural sciences. He held an umbrella for me when it rained. He opened the door of the car for me after visiting each attraction. At lunch time, he introduced me to delicious and inexpensive restaurants for lunch. The best part of the trip was that he took many high quality photos of me at each place of interest. Mr. Alfredo Diaz's high quality and excellent service left me with good and pleasant memories of this trip, he is one of the best tour guides I have ever met, and I hope to meet him again the next time my friends and I come to San Salvador.

    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!

    The service was highly professional, drivers were English-speaking, reliable and very friendly, the cars tidy and comfortable, everything worked in a very incomplicated and well organized way. But the most amazing thing was that Marbel really went a great extra mile in helping me to resolve the issues with my trip to Nicaragua. What he did was really not obvious and went well beyond the service I paid for: he made phone calls for me, made bus ticket reservations, used his connections with authorities to obtain necessary permits. All in all, it felt like Marbel wasn't just providing a service for money, but was caring for his customers whenever he could. Really exceptional, Marbel, very highly appreciated!
