Very knowledgeable about his country, past (Mayans) and present (1980-92 Civil War), birds, food, geography and geology of El Salvador. Rather than taking the boring highway directly to the Route of the Flowers, he drove out to the coast and along the ocean before heading inland to the five towns on the Ruta de la Flores. We stayed in each town as long as I wanted, and he emphasized things he knew I particularly wanted to see. One of the best local tour guides I've had in 83 countries.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Jonathan Thank you very much for visiting El Salvador and booking your tours with toursbylocals. Is great to hear you enjoyed the day activities and the drive along the coast, I also had a great time guiding you and having interesting conversations along the day. I wish you all the best for your next days of Hollidays in Central America and for the future Benjamín

Great drive up a mountain, stopping at 5 small towns that comprise the Route of Flowers. Each town different than the others, attended a food festival for a great meal, a full day that ended with me eating the national dish, pupusas (thick corn tortillas with beans and cheese, served with tomato sauce and cabbage). The trip also included a fascinating UNESCO archaeological display of an ancient Mayan village. Benjamin is just excellent.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Paul for booking the tour and for the review. I am glad you like the day activities and places plus the Pupusas. I wish you all the best for your future trips Benjamin

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.
