I doubt there is a guide world wide who could be any better than Vivian V. From our first contact until the end of a wonderful day with her, our experience could not have been better. She provided us with a great deal of advice on our visit to Ecuador. She recommended what clothes to bring, how to prepare and made some truly wonderful recommendations. She tailored the day to our interests, was very knowledgeable, enthusiastic, and has our highest possible recommendation.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi David and Francie! Thank you for this wonderful comment. I LOVED touring you two and still talk about you to my husband. I hope you will come back so I can show you some more. Love you two! Vivian

We took the train to the volcanos, drove on to Cotopaxi Volcano, hiked for 2 hours with a stunning view of the volcano! The hike is challenging... a 25-30% grade, terrain of tricky lava sand, at an altitude of 16,000 feet!! It was a fun challenge, with otherworldly and spectacular views.. Plus our guide was with us the whole time and so helpful.. We had a late lunch at a beautiful 500 year old hacienda afterwards to complete another perfect day with Vivian, our amazing guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Sidney! I know you are now back in Texas, probably recuperating from your trip. You and David were two of my all time favorites to tour, never to be forgotten. You have a friend forever here. I will think about you and hope you return to Ecuador and me. Love you! Vivi

WOW such a fantastic day with Vivian. She is the ultimate super-guide. Vivian went to great pains to get everything in order for the train trip, excellent prompt responses to all our questions, lots of great prep advice. Train ride was from Quito to Cotopaxi where we did a horseback-riding trip that was the high point of our week in Ecuador. All arranged a la carte by Vivian in response to our particular interests. Vivian seems to know everything about everything! English outstanding. THANKS, VIVIAN
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: You two have a friend for life here in me. I so, so enjoyed the day with you. It was long but did not seem like it to me we laughed so much. Best wishes to you back in cold Chicago, and I hope you will come back because you are my friends. Vivi
