José C.

Quito, Pichincha, Ecuador

Hola, I am José from Quito, although I am new in Tour by Locals I have over ten years of experience as guide around Ecuador.

I am open and totally flexible about any of my tours so just let me know what is your ideal vacation.

I do love to show you my lovely country, "the little South America", one of the greatest biodiversities on the World.

Please let me introduce you to the Andes mountains and the magic cloud forest. .

I do enjoy the aboriginal festivities, hike - trails and meet people from diferent cultures.
I drive my own SUV car and know very well the Ecuadorian roads with over fifteen years of experience as driver with E class (professional license). Also I have traveled around South America so I can give some tips about my neighbor countries too.

So are you ready to visit the best of Ecuador and its culture. .

If you are passionate about travel, local cuisine, photography, and trails I am your guide.
So let's discover Ecuador together!

A Recent Review of this guide

Jose quickly responded to all questions I asked before the tour. He met us on time for a customized tour which was EXCELLENT. He went to every place we requested while dealing with all the carnival traffic. He spoke good English and was hospitable and helpful in all aspects. I would HIGHLY recommend this guide.
