El castor es un chico super agradable de vibra positiva con quién alguien puede tener una conversación agradable y puede explicar muy bien en inglés o español también, si eres de los que busca una experiencia poco común de un tour cotidiano el castor es la mejor opción. Sobre el tiempo del tour muy bien hicimos muchas cosas, aprendimos y probamos cosas que caracterizan al pais. En fin, el castor es único en lo que hace. Se los recomiendo!!!!

Una visita guiada increíble que duró más de 3 horas!! Castor es un guía apasionado que explicó muy bien la información y respondió a todas nuestras preguntas. Aprendí mucho más durante el tour que durante mi visita de 2 días en solitario. Recomiendo el tour al 100%!!!

The tour with Nelson was extremely insightful and humbling. His stories and experience from a time not too long gone are intimate and very interesting. Thanks for sharing and showing us Santa Ana from a side we would never see otherwise!

Nelson (Castor) gave an incredibly informative tour. We started in his old neighbourhood with stories of what it was like growing up during the gang violence. It covered history, politics, and the local sights to see and do. Was excellent getting this info from someone who experienced life here firsthand. We also stopped by a speakeasy to play pool, which was a great touch, and to have a go at pupussa making!

A brilliant walking tour of Santa Ana, Beaver gave us a great insight into life in Santa Ana and El Salvador past and present. He also gave us a lot of recommendations for the rest of our trip in El Salvador. We made and tried pupusas as well as ending the tour with more pupusas from a very popular spot and delicious Ice Cream.
