I WAS BORN AND RAISED in Cuenca , one of the most beautiful cities in this country.
Since I was a little boy I have been attracted and interested in traveling and getting to know different places and people, so, after I finished high school I took the decision to study tourism. I did three years of Tourism and Hospitality Management and then I decided to travel and explore outside Ecuador in order to grow and discover myself. So, I went to Belgium for a year and I can assure it was one of the greatest experiences of my life. I was also able to travel around Europe (One of my deems) and It opened my mind. I was able to learn about a different cultures, a different language, but it also make me realize that there's no place like my country "Ecuador". Thus I came back to continue my career and also I managed my time in order to work as a tour guide on my free time. It's been more than seven years of incredible experiences. I've been almost everywhere in Ecuador and pretty much around South America, helping myself to learn how to Love Life! I've met people from many countries and all five continents. I can't imagine myself in an office for 8 hours a day. Therefore, being a tour guide is perfect for me.
I love spending time outdoors, in nature, hiking mountains or just exploring markets, museums and historical places. Now, more than ever, I am sure I was born to be a tour guide.
My mission is to make people's visit a wonderful experience and to draw smiles on their faces by showing the beautiful diversity and contrast of my country.
Please note that I can arrange transportation for every kind of tour and group, if you need and it's not yet included.

We had a wonderful time as a family with two children 8 and 10 years old. Javier was excellent and adjusted things as needed. He was able to accommodate our different requests seamlessly. He is very knowledgeable on many different topics (geology, history (past and present), culture) , as well as has a great sense of humor. We would highly recommend him for adults and or families.
