- You know you have a fantastic tour guide when other tour guides look to him or her for information. This happened when I toured Ecuador with Francisco Guayasamin. At one museum, a tour guide for an American listened to Francisco as he described to me the history of an Indigenous tribe. The guide started asking Francisco questions about the tribe and asked us if he and his client could tag along with us. Now that's impressive!
- From the moment I arrived in the airport, I was treated like a VIP. Francisco's knowledge of Ecuador as as immense as his graciousness. I emailed him with the things I wanted to do and he created the perfect itinerary. I cannot imagine touring Ecuador without him.
- I wholeheartedly encourage anyone who wants to visit this beautiful country to contact Francisco. What a difference it made for my magical tour of Ecuador.
