WHO WE ARE

About Us

My name is Salvador Coquix, I founded Tour Guide Salvador. We have been operating since 2010, in the beginning my involvement had a particular focus with the adventure segment offering volcano and mountain hikes nearby my town. Since then I have extended my tour offerings as my passion for providing tours grew. To expand my knowledge of the tourism industry in 2012 I studied a course on National Tour Guides in Guatemala City. Since 2012, I`ve been offering tailor-made tours all over Guatemala for individuals, couples and families. I also recruited two experienced and knowledgeable partners to come and join my team, so together we can provide the best local tours exclusive to Guatemala.

In 2015 I took part in bird identification training, supported by the Audubon Society. The training has enabled me to provide specialized tours for bird watching.

I take great pride in Tour Guide Salvador, a company founded and expanded myself. I have created the perfect balance between pleasure and learning; combining culture, nature and adventure.
