Excellent and impressive sites

We love anything to do with the Maya civilisation, and this tour compiles the very best of El Salvador has to offer, with Joya de Ceren the only example of its kind on how Maya people lived daily. For 1500 years the site remained covered under many layers of volcanic ash hence its preservation is immaculate. No wonder why it is nicknamed the Pompeii of the Americas. Completing the tour is San Andres with its unique Maya factory of blue pigment (sacred colour to the Mayas), and Tazumal. The visit to Santa Ana city was great as it is the only beautiful city and well worth it in El Salvador. Our guide was very friendly, kind and joy.

I have NEVER had a tour guide as wonderful, as competent and as thoroughly knowledgeable as Marbel. He knows just about everything about Salvadorean history, culture, foods, wines, religions and icons, prominent figures and natural phenomena. It made the tours so very special in that I was able to fully appreciate everything I was experiencing because of Marbel’s dedication and attention to detail. The fact that he did all of this on Day One WHILE DRVING in the WORST TRAFFIC I have experienced in years- is nothing short of miraculous!

The Mayan Heritage tour is spectacular and I encourage everybody to experience the southern most Mayan civilization in El Salvador!
