Mario F.

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 was an excellent guide. His knowledge of the city and his English were perfect. He was very personable and enjoyable to be with. He took us to a great local place for lunch. He accommodated all our requests. He was very responsive to our initial booking and subsequent requests. What more could you want? Thanks Mario!
