5 star rating: Highly Recommended March 2016

This is an excellent tour to take when in El Salvador. The volcanoes are breathtaking and the hiking is challenging but manageable. My guide was professional, on time, spoke great English and really allowed me to dictate how the tour unfolded. Excellent trip and worth doing.
