Tour: #129921, San Salvador City Tour and Suchitoto, San Salvador, El Salvador    view tour
Date: Mar 17/17

Benjamin is a great guide. We appreciated his knowledge of local history and culture, his ability to be flexible and change our itinerary on the fly when he learned more about our interests, and his graciousness as a host. We were also surprised to find that he's an accomplished birder. We recommend him highly. (We also recommend getting a hotel in one of the smaller towns and not in San Salvador -- much nicer.)

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Bruce and Karen Thank you very much for your comment, it was nice guiding you.

Awesome! Picked me up at the airport and whisked me off for a circle tour of El Salvador based on my interests! We say the beach, ruta de las flores, and ended with pupusas! I was a single female traveling and had the best time ever. Totally recommend Benjamin and hope to visit again soon.

Benjamin was an excellent guide who adjusted the tour to our needs. He is fully fluent in English and even made jokes in English. He is currently training other locals to be become guides and encourages locals in their endeavors (i.e. a local artist). Excellent customer service. Highly recommended. Very informative about the local culture and nature. Helped us through a border crossing. Gave us many options for activities. Very sociable and flexible. Arranged for local guides.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Than You very much Zoltan for traveling with us, I also had a good time guiding you in El Salvador
