    Had a 7 hour layover and called Mac to give me an El Salvador city tour instead of waiting at the airport. Was a quite interesting experience. Mac has been doing tours for long time and is very knowledgeable about the country's history. We had a great Papusa lunch in the way and visited the Mayan route including the city and El Rosario Iglesia. Would like to call him back to visit the beautiful beaches and attractive places of this friendly country. Thanks Mac!

    I don't know where to start this awesome review of Mac and the tour itself! I have always wanted to take a tour like this and I am so HAPPY I found Mac! He was so hospitable and flexible with our time. It was the first time my family went on a tour like this in El Salvador and we all enjoyed every minute of it. From his recommendations for lunch to the pit stop in downtown Santa Ana- it was full of adventure the entire time. Mac was very engaging and even catered some facts/sights he shared around my personal passion towards architecture. He is extremely knowledgeable and able to provide information to us in both Spanish and English. I DEFINITELY recommend Mac and his tour services to anyone looking to explore the beautiful country of El Salvador. I was born in California, USA but my family is all from El Salvador. Seeing everything Mac showed us emphasized my love for "my" country even more and I am glad he is able to share it with people from all over the world! Looking forward to our next tour! Gracias Mac!!! Saludes desde Texas!
