Eva IncaudoSacramento, CALIFORNIA, United States
Outstanding! Vivian was beyond accommodating for our 3 generational family of 10 tour. Her tour was so educational for all of us with a tour of a small local rose producer who sends flowers all over the world (even the males enjoyed it!). Next we visited a hummingbird reserve and finally had lunch and a private excursion to the Papallacta Hot Springs where we hiked and then luxuriated in the hot springs. Vivian and her driver, Hannibal were absolutely the best!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Eva. You are out in the Galapagos now. I want you to know that I thoroughly enjoyed you and you family. I had a great day with you. Your children and grandchildren were just the best, a real positive reflection on you and Gary. I can usually judge parents by their children, and you did an outstanding job raising them. I know you will have a wonderful week in the Galapagos. You have a friend for life here in Ecuador in me. Best wishes always, Vivi
Vivian was so lovely. Knowledgeable about so many things and so pleasant. She was wonderful with my children and super helpful. All her suggestions were great. Her English was perfect. I highly recommend her.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Leah! It's Vivian. Thanks for this nice comment. I truly enjoyed our time together and LOVED your children, so very well behaved and fun for me to be around. I told my husband how much the kids enjoyed the thermal pool. I suppose you are back home now in Toronto. What a small world. I hope to see you again in the future. Best wishes, always, Vivi

After returning to Quito from a Galapagos cruise, we joined Vivian for a wonderful trip into the Andes to the Papallacta spa where we relaxed with massages and bathed in hot springs pools. On the way Vivian had arranged a private visit to a rose farm where the chief gardener spent an hour giving us an in-depth tour. Fellow cruisers who had done a multi-day Amazon tour with Vivian and plan a coastal tour with her next year had raved about her expertise and effervescent personality. We heartily concur.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Once again, thanks, Larry. You flatter me too much. See you in two years. Vivian
