Danny N.

Quito, Pichincha, Ecuador

Hello dear travelers, my name is Danny. I've worked about 6 years in travel agencies organizing tours around Ecuador and now I've been working for the past 7 years as a freelance guide.

I have extensive knowledge guiding on the 4 different regions of Ecuador (coast, mountains, jungle, and Galapagos Islands), I believe experience is one of the best factors in tourism in order to offer the best service and reach out the goal that are the smile and welfare of my passengers.

Besides being a tour guide I maintain a constant qualification in ecological and anthropological subjects. I am convinced tourism is the best way to build bridges of respect and brotherhood among cultures. I have had the opportunity to lead groups of different and varied interests all over the country.

One of the hobbies that I have is the practice of hiking and trekking around my country. The geography of my country is one of the most difficult ones, because we live surrounded by mountains and volcanoes.

I would really be very excited to show you the riches of one of the most biodiverse countries in America.

A Recent Review of this guide

Danny was an excellent guide. This was the first time we used ToursByLocals and we will certainly use them again. It was a great experience. We had 1 full day in Quito and Danny shared the best of Quito with us. He picked us up promptly at our hotel and dropped us off where we requested for dinner. He answered all of our questions and made sure we were taken care of at our drop off spot. He was nice, interesting, and fun. Our tour went over a little and Danny was fine with it. Thank you Danny!
