QUITO, PICHINCHA, Ecuador

Hi, I'm David. I was born and raised in Quito, Ecuador.

I graduated in Ecotourism in Quito.
About 10 years ago, I started working as a naturalist guide in the Amazon Rainforest and now I specialize in Private Tours. During all those years working as a guide, I have been learning much more, not only about nature but also about the history of my country and the indigenous groups that inhabited it. I also got the chance to explore and travel the main tourist destinations.
I have guided groups as well as independent travelers coming from many parts of the world, which allowed me to know firsthand the needs and requirements of the guests visiting Ecuador.
Some of my hobbies came handy with guiding and help me with my work: photography of fauna and nature, bird watching, trekking and mountain climbing.
My tours range from City Tours of the Old Town in Quito to Day trips to the surroundings areas, to experience the Cloud Forest and the Volcanoes. All the itineraries can be customized to meet your needs.
I look forward to seeing you in Quito!

A Recent Review of this guide

David was the perfect guide for our trip to Banos. He has years of experience in the rainforest and Amazon, which helped us from missing things we would have otherwise overlooked. We are fairly active and wanted to do quite a bit of hiking- he was easily able to outpace us. As two young travelers, having him around was like taking a road trip with friends and made the drive to and from Quito comfortable and fun. Would highly recommend him- particularly for any rain forest or Amazon planning!
