Q&A

Q: What is the best part of guiding tourists in your country?

A: Very difficult question, but Mountain Biking along the Andes is my favourite part of my country.

 

Q: What are guests most surprised about when visiting Ecuador?

A: The people, how friendly we are, the biodiversity that Ecuador has. Here you can have breakfast on the coast then have lunch in the mountains and finally have dinner in the Amazon basin.

 

Q: What is one experience anybody visiting your country should do?

Galapagos is the main highlight, but all of the visitors have to do the mainland multisport because this is an active tour where we mix with local gastronomy and the most important thing we share with local people.

 

Q: What is your most unforgettable moment when guiding?

A: When your guests don’t tell you anything, but you can see how excited they are in their faces.

A: Utah to ride the Whole Enchilada!

 

Q: What is the most challenging adventure you’ve ever done?

A: When I finished high school, I took my bike and rode it through Ecuador for 1 year, and I climbed almost all of our snowcap mountains along the way.

 

Q: What do your guests say is best about the trips you lead?

A: The diversity of our country and how the people are. They say also that the activities that we have are the best option to learn about our country.

Q&A

Q: What is the best part of guiding tourists in your country?

A: I like the fact that I don’t have to be between four walls in an office and Ecuador has so much to offer like volcanos, the rainforest, beautiful beaches, the Galapagos Islands, and I am in love with these amazing places within my country and I am very happy to show them to the tourists.

 

Q: What is your favourite trip to do and why?

A: I love to be a Tour Leader in the Galapagos Islands because is so amazing and unique how the species evolve to live in a harsh environment, the geology in the islands is just spectacular and we can snorkel, scuba dive, biking, hiking or just walk around the little towns and in each activity you get to see something interesting.

 

Q: What are guests most surprised about when visiting Ecuador?

A: That even though we are at the equator we have 4 natural regions; our elevation goes from sea level to 6263 meters Chimborazo Volcano (20668 feet) which is the highest point around the world measure from the core of the earth, travellers cannot believe how many native nationalities we have, the flora and fauna; more than 16000 species of vascular plants, 1608 species of birds including more than 130 species of hummingbirds all of them inside our small piece of land.

 

Q: What is one experience anybody visiting your country should do?

Actually one of the best experiences is getting the real deal. Getting to know our families, eating with them or be treated with a nice Ecuadorian meal prepared by the guide and his family.

 

Q: What is your most unforgettable moment when guiding?

A: Biking and snorkelling with sea lions in Isabela Island in the Galapagos.

 

Q: What is one local dish or drink that tourists must try on a visit to your country and why?

A: In Quito we have one drink we love during the festivities of the city in December we call it Canelazo made out of Naranjilla (Solanum quitoensi) cinnamon, cloves and sweet pepper cooked together, we serve it hot and pour some moonshine that is sugar cane liquor. We love to drink this during cold nights.

 

Q: Where would you want to go on holiday?

A: I would love to go biking in a new trail we have discovered around the highlands.

 

Q: What is the most challenging adventure you’ve ever done?

A: Downhill ride at Frogs trail close to Quito City in a front suspension bicycle.

 

Q: What do your guests say is best about the trips you lead?

A: The passion I have for my country and even I know all the places we visit, seems I always get surprised by mother nature and they said that I am smiling all the time even when its rainy and we cannot see a meter far from us.
