Guayaquil, GUAYAS, Ecuador

Hi my name is Mario. I am one of those tourguides that didn't start as a tourguide but moved to the profession because of passion!

I use to belong to the corporate world, working in finance as my Unviersity degree said I should! However, when I was 24 I decided to do what I really loved in life and that was guiding.

I took 4 months off to travel and see how people guide and booking tours around the world, and I got the idea of how I wanted to guide. I decided that I was going to be always myself, honest and transparent. I don't want people to feel that they are with a tourguide but with a friend they came to visit in Ecuador! I came back, started the training to be a tourguide and here I am!

I also lived in the United States for couple of months when I was 21 to become fluent in the language, so that won't be barrier for us!

In my profile you will see some suggestions of tours, but I can customize anything according to your needs!

Simply send me a message for a prompt reply. I would love to show you around my city or some farms! (really recommend the cocoa one).

A Recent Review of this guide

Mario did a wonderful tour. We had a very great time. We learned a lot on the process of making chocolate and made real organic 100% cocoa chocolate. The farm was great and we really appreciated to see how real people live. Thanks Mario for this trip.
