Kind Words from Fellow Travelers

Robert Catlin

Los Angeles, CA

Everywhere we visited we met people who have become his friends so that we had an especially personal & familiar sense as we discovered El Salvador & its welcoming people. We always felt safe & well cared for. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED: if you travel to El Salvador, travel with Alfredo.

Crowsnest Pass, Canada

Alfredo was easy to work with. He speaks fluent English and uses vehicles suitable for the activity. His knowledge and love for his country are evident. Should I return to El Salvador, I wouldn’t hesitate to use his services again.

Why Taking a Local Tour Guide Is Good For You

A licensed tour guide offers you safety, customization, best timing and value. Skip the company, call the guide!

You Get More Than a Guide

Since the moment we meet, you have a friend in El Salvador. One to orient and recommend you the best places to eat or where's the coldest beer. To share the stories and facts you hardly find in the travel guides.

Money Well Spent

You have my commitment in supporting local communities, small producers and family run businesses as much as possible. My services and tours will never support any case of child labour nor animal abuse. Part of my profit is oriented to support an animal shelter.

Your Local Expert

Getting the perspective of a local is essential to understand El Salvador. Born and raised in downtown San Salvador gave me the rare opportunity to witness some of the most important events in El Salvador recent history. I, not only read history, I lived it!

Itineraries that Fits You

You want to combine beach and mountain or maybe some off the beaten-track places? Or maybe you want to sleep till late because you're on vacation after all! No problemo! You ask and I made it fit for you. Just mix and match to make your experience more memorable.

You Set the Pace

Either you like to stare at a piece of art in a museum or a fast hiker you set the pace of your tour. I know flexibility is key as well being open to expect the unexpected. Take your time to find the best angle for your photo or to taste your pupusas!

You Can Ask as Much as You Want

With a private guide you can ask as much or about anything you want. The best way to learn is exchanging experiences and points of views. I'm pretty open minded. You can ask even those controversial topics people on large groups never dare.
