    Nuestro guía fue Osmaro, muy servicial, atento y siempre pendiente del grupo. Muy conocedor de la realidad de su país, nos llevó al centro histórico de San Salvador, luego a un pueblito encantador llamado Panchimalco en donde se encuentra el taller de arte de Miguel Ángel Ramírez, simplemente espectacular! Y finalmente fuimos al parque Nacional El Boquerón a ver el volcán. Muchas cosas por hacer en un día fantástico! Mis felicitaciones a Eco Tours Petate, definitivamente queremos regresar. San Salvador nos sorprendió muy gratamente!

    Excellent experience! The tour was 5 stars - a nice mix of ES history, local sites, food & even some adrenaline. :) The tour guides (Osmaro y Ruby) were fantastic! Very professional & knowledgeable, yet super friendly & considerate. Would absolutely recommend this tour & Eco Tours Petate.

    El Boqueron + Rainbow Slide + La Playa Thanks for customizing our time for us! Both Rafael and Osmoro we awesome guides. Very informative and very flexible! Had no worries or concerns with them leading us. My family had a great day in El Salvador.. might have to go back to check out the waterfalls!

    This is a great tour to start off your vacation in San Salvador, it includes a nice car and walking tour of the capital. And of course, a visit to the majestic volcano at El Boqueron. Our guide Rafael was awesome. He was very knowledgeable, attentive and patient. Definitely recommend Eco Petate Tours!

    I recommend Eco Tours Petate for a tour of the San Salvador area. Great rates! I did the El Boqueron (volcano) National Park and San Salvador City Tour, which was about 4 hours long. They are open to pretty much taking you anywhere. Rafael provided a lot of useful historic facts about the area.

    Raphael is an amazing guide! His english is easy to understand and his driving skills are impeccable. He is very personable and made our experience touring El Salvador wonderful! We plan to

    Rafael picked us up right on time at the hotel. Fabulous tour! Saw the volcano at El Boqueron Nat’l Park. Then took us over to Panchimalco for lunch and a look around before finishing up in downtown San Salvador. Rafael’s skills were superb as he navigated the narrow on twisting roads on our tours. Rafael was personable and very knowledgeable about the area and it’s history! Very safe and Covid appropriate!

    I chatted first to Osmaro via Whatsapp. I explained what I like to see and he put things in a perfect order for me and my sister. Unfortunatley, Joya de Ceren was closed to the tourists on that day (for an unknown period of time actually), but made a tour to San Andreas, El Boqueron, Museo del Arte and San Salvador old town. I recommend to visit the museum as it has many original paintings that obviously cannot be found in Europe or USA. There is a lot of dedication to shed light onto the Martinez regime, i.e. many paintings are inspired by the dark side of that time. Specifically for us, Osmaro found the painting of our uncle, Kamilo Minero. He knows so many things and does not get bored of talking and answering questions. San Salvador city was not scary at all, instead we enjoyed walking around the old town. My favorite highlight is the Rosario Church, that is very beautiful inside. From inside it reminded me Sagrada Familia in Barcelona. If you are in Latin America - book your tours. Osmaro will help you :)

    Hoy hice el segundo tour con eco tours petate. las dos veces tenia una escala de 7h y aproveche de ir una vez con ellos a conocer la ciudad y hoy el volcan boqueron (y las dos veces fuimos a comer pupusas segun mi deseo). los dos tours estuvieron excelente, mucho conocimiento sobre la historia del pais y de los lugares. todo funciono bien, puntual y buena y rapida communicacion. ademas lo que me parece muy importante es que me senti en cualquier momento segura. los recomiendo con mucho gusto! muchas gracias y hasta la proxima.

    Estuvimos en una escala 7 horas en San Salvador y fue tiempo suficiente para enamorarnos de El Salvador gracias a los chicos de Eco Tours Petate. Nos recogieron en el aeropuerto y estuvieron siempre atentos a la hora del vuelo y de hacer el recorrido por la ciudad mientras nos iban contando la historia de el país. En realidad que fue algo muy especial. Hicimos el recorrido de los principales lugares de San Salvador y hasta fuimos a El Boquerón que vale mucho la pena. Nos dio hambre y nos llevaron a comer pupusas. Muy muy bueno. Nuestro guía fue Osmaro que fue súper amable y siempre pendiente de todo. Súper recomendados | @guillodeviaje
