Vivi has excellent command of the English language, which automatically made the tour better that others we have taken in Quito. She was also very flexible about the itinerary, emphasizing our bird-watching time at Yanacocha while discarding the leg to Mitad del Mundo. When the excursion to Pululahua was ruined by cloud cover, she substituted a fantastic trip to a humming bird preserve. She was also generous with information about other Quito attractions we could see on our own during the rest of our stay

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Jim! Hi Kathleen! It's Vivian! I loved touring you yesterday and believe you added 25 birds to your lifetime list, 7 new hummingbirds! When you stay the next several weeks in Mindo you will add many more I am sure. Yesterday was a perfect example of why flexibility in a guide here in the Andes is so important. Our weather changes quickly, sometimes three times in a day, and it is important for a traveler to get the most out of a day that the guide be able to effortlessly change itinerary. Best, Vivian
