Mafy was very well informed and qualified. She was adept at assessing our interests and adjusting her itinerary and activities. So, although we had a capable and friendly driver, we spent most of our time on a walking tour from City Center along the Malecon Riverwalk (especially the gardens) through the historical districts of Santa Ana and Las Pinas and back to our starting point. A bonus - lunch in the courtyard of the restored Hotel Del Parque in the relatively new historical park near airport.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you John! I'm glad you enjoyed the tour and visiting the courtyard as well. It was great to meet you and your wife. Cheers from Guayaquil!
Mafy is an outstanding tour guide. She is young but very experienced and smart. Mafy took excellent care of us.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Joram! You and Ana are a lovely couple and I enjoyed our tour very much. Have fun in the Amazon!

We had a great city tour with Mafy! She greeted us on time at the port with a nice air conditioned car and good driver. We saw so many of the city highlights - much on foot - and learned so much about Ecuador and Guayaquil. Mafy is so well informed and provides lots of interesting information. She is energetic and fun, and her English skills are superb! Highly recommended! (My friend and I were only her third guests via ToursByLocals. She deserves more business.)
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Carol for your lovely comment! Im very happy you enjoyed my city, it was really nice getting to know you and Mary. I hope you continue enjoying the rest of you trip. Thanks for the kind wishes!!
Mafy was an excellent guide and Jose a very good driver. Both spoke English well and Mafy was full of information about Guyaquil, art and anthropology, current events in Ecuador. I highly recommend her. I had a 9 hour wait between flights. They picked me up promply, made the time fly by and gave me a very comprehensive tour including time at the musem of contemporary art and anthropology and the local craft market.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Shirley! I'm very happy you enjoyed our time together in Guayaquil, it was a lot of fun and I'm glad you liked the museum and craft market as well. All the best on the end of your trip with your family! Mafy
