Mario's an excellent guide and storyteller and led us on a great tour of the cacao farm/ city. He shared funny anecdotes while showing us around. Later we learned to process cocoa, from bean, to raw cacao we made an exquisite ancestral drink reminiscent of hot chocolate. Highlight of my trip to Ecuador!
As a single women traveling alone I wasn't sure what to expect. I meet Mario at my hotel and right off the bat I knew this was going to be a phenomenal experience he was warm and welcoming. He had me sit in the front row and we talked about his country and its history, it was wonderful. At the farm he was well versed in the history of the family and the farm, touring the farm he knew all about the various plants and talked about the growing season and how self sustain the farm was . The food presentation at the farm was exceptional and delicious, roasting and making the cocoa for the hot chocolate was a blast.I would recommend this to anyone and everyone looking for a local experience and having a guide like Mario only would add to the experience. Thank you again Mario for a wonderful time.
I had a wonderful time. I am traveling alone for work and needed something to do. This trip can be a one person trip. Mario was an excellent guide. The food at the farm was excellent. Highly recommend. Thanks Mario.
We had an amazing time with Toño!!!! We learned so much, made our own cocoa and had an amazing lunch on the farm! We got to see the town and go into the market. Don't skip this one and ask for Toño!!!!

Mario is the best tour guide I have ever had. Very professional, friendly and knowledgeable. He speaks perfect English which was very helpful to me because my Spanish is admittedly not so great I am learning. Mario obviously loves Ecuador and his home city of Guayaquil, because he explains things in a way that conveys enthusiasm, pride and sincerity. This particular tour helped me understand exactly how chocolate is produced by touring a family farm and seeing how the entire process works. I even got some hands on experience by helping to prepare the chocolate for our dessert. It was unforgettable! Also, Mario gave me a great introduction to the city of Guayaquil as we toured many of the highlights in the downtown area. Finally, he provided me with some excellent suggestions for what to do on my own in Guayaquil the following day. In summary, Mario went above and beyond my expectations. I highly recommend booking a tour with him. You will be glad you did!
