Mafy provided my husband and myself with an excellent walking tour of the main highlights of Guayaquil. She arranged for a driver to take us to where she started the walking tour. Then the driver met us at the end of the tour and brought us back to the hotel. Mafy is very knowledgeable about a wide range of subjects from land iguanas to political history, to horticulture and landscaping and much more. She's easy company . We would recommend her as a guide.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: THANK YOU Maureen! We had a great day. All the best to you and Doug and continue enjoying your trips! Kind regards from Guayaquil

Our guide, Mafy, and driver, Julio, could not have been better. Our tour was thoughtfully planned with the strenuous part first, in the cooler morning hour. Because we were staying in the Hotel Parque, she dropped the visit to the gardens there and easily filled our time with the Parque Seminario and a leisurely stroll along the Malecon. Our guide did not hurry these two older people. She answered every question knowledgeably and told us many fascinating stories about Guayaquil's history. Thank you!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Deborah. I’m really happy you and Henry enjoyed our time together in Guayaquil, it was truly a great day!! I All the best to you and enjoyed the last days of your vacations in South America. Thanks again!

Mafy was very professional, knowledgeable, and helpful. We had a day tour of Guayaquil and she informed us in detail about the sites and led the tour at our own pace. I highly recommend Mafy for tours anywhere in Ecuador.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Greg!!! It was a real pleasure to be your guide in my hometown. I hope you and your beautiful family enjoy the rest of your holidays in Ecuador! Cheers, Mafy

My family and I had a wonderful time on our guided tour with Mafy. She explained in detail the history of the city, it's parks and neighborhoods. We saw iguanas in the park, toured the cathedral and enjoyed a leisurely stroll alomg the riverwalk. She also spent about 45 minutes with us at the phone store while we purchased sim cards for our phones. She definitely went above and beyond what any of us expected. Her english is perfect and she was very pleasant. Highly recommended.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Michael! You are very kind. I had a very fun day and I'm happy you and your family enjoyed our time together in Guayaquil. All the best to you all and enjoy the rest of your trip! Hugs, Mafy

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!

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
