Wonderful very full day travelling to the south to the town of Banos. The high valley between towering volcanoes makes a wonderful drive. Dropping off the high plateau into the Amazonian basin is memorable. Vivian makes your learning personal. Her flexibility and knowledge helped us to understand the history and culture of Ecuador. She never tired of my endless questions. My highest recommendation - Vivian started our 3 days of tours as our guide and left as our friend.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I had a great time showing you Banos and hope you come back for other parts of Ecuador. Vivian

Nothing but great things to say! Vivian is very knowledgeable without being "teachy"; we got into some great discussions about both history and current developments which made the occasional holiday traffic seem like a non-issue. She has a natural friendly demeanor with both me and the people at restaurants, parks, etc along the way (this had some practical benefits where there were lines!) A real professional, and a real person, through and through - a real pleasure to spend the day with!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for this wonderful review, Mark. I had a great day with you to and from and over in Banos, lots of fun, laughs and good conversation. I hope your idea of moving your family here works out for you. Best wishes, and If I can help you please let me know. Vivian

Vivian is hands down the nicest - and still utterly professional - tour guide we have ever had the pleasure of spending time with. We are a family of 6 and she made us feel like her family right away, and had us laughing and loving her by the end of the day. She is genetically sweet and we thoroughly enjoyed our full day tour with her, as she educated us about Quito and Ecuador. We HIGHLY recommend her!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Greg. Hope you and your beautiful family have a wonderful trip out to the Galapagos. Sorry I cannot take you to Otavalo on the 26th. I thoroughly enjoyed the day with you all, and you have a friend forever in Ecuador in me. Call me if you need advice and/or assistance during the balance of your trip. Vivian
