          Ecuador's BEST Guide
          My husband and I booked a tour with Eddie of the Churute mangroves and Howler monkey forest. Eddie personalized the tour to fit our needs and schedule. We saw many different kinds of birds on our way to the reserve and at the Estuary. Eddie had eagle eyes for spotting birds and he brought his professional level camera to capture high quality photos of them for us. After an enjoyable canoe ride in the Estuary, we went to the forest to search for the howler monkeys. It was a very easy trail and it did not take long for us to find them. We saw some females with their babies and a bit further on we saw a male as well. The best thing about this tour is Eddie! We are fairly well traveled and Eddie was by far the most knowledgeable and enthusiastic guide we have EVER had. He told us so much about Guayaquil, the wildlife, plants, and answered all of our questions. He even filled us in on some of the information that we missed while we were in the Galapagos. If we ever make it back to Ecuador, we will definitely book with Eddie again! (Eddie captured the attached images for us!)

          Great visit in Ecuador!
          My trip to Ecuador was an amazing adventure in exploring its varied ecosystems. My time in the Galapagos and Guayaquil was enhanced by the great tours lead by our guide Eddie. His knowledge of wildlife and birds was amazing. He was even kind enough to share his amazing photos with us. Great visit!

          Outstanding Tour of Guayaquil!
          Eddie was a wonderful tour guide: knowledgeable, flexible to our interests, and focused on helping us to get the most out of the short time we were in Guayaquil. His knowledge of the flora and fauna of the area, the city's history, the cacao, coffee and wine industries made the tour enjoyable and educational. Our next stop was the Galapagos, and we found the information he shared on the islands to be invaluable. Highly recommend!

          Galapagos - Santa Fe island
          I went with Eduardo to Santa Fe Island (Galapagos). The tour was amazing, there is a lot of marine life there. Eduardo shared all his knowledge with us and now I understand better why this place is so unique. He is very kind

          The Highlight of a Memorable Trip
          This is a whole-hearted recommendation for Eduardo Meneses. My friend and I met Eduardo as our guide on a walking tour of Guayaquil prearranged by a tour operator. As he showed us the highlights of the city he clearly loves, we were impressed by his knowledge and sense of humor. It was our good fortune to learn he was available until 4:00 pm the next day, and he offered a trip featuring visits to the bird-abundant Churute Mangroves Preserve by boat, a forest walk in search of howler monkeys, and lunch and hands-on experience at a family-owned cacao plantation. Our last day in Ecuador was the highlight of a memorable trip. It was truly our good fortune to make Eduardo's acquaintance. We learned much and had fun while doing so.

          Excellent Tour of the Churute Mangrove Reserve and Coca Farm
          We toured with Eduardo and had a great time! We saw lots of wildlife including howler monkeys, a sloth, crocodiles and I added 25 different birds to my life list. The Churute Mangrove Ecological Reserve had several different areas- we took a boat thru the mangroves, which was great, we walked in the dry forest and we mostly drove but stopped to look at birds in the area where small farmers, and shrimp hatcheries dotted the landscape. Eduardo shared his extensive knowledge about all the wildlife, as well as about the local culture. Early on, we had stopped at a huge fruit market, and he gave us fruit to snack on as we traveled. Later, we had a delicious lunch at a cocoa farm and leaned how cocoa is farmed and prepared. Lastly, we made chocolate bars. All in all, it was a great day!

          Trip to Galapagos and Montañita
          We booked a family trip to Galapagos and Montanita with Eduardo. We are nature lovers and we were lucky to have Eduardo as a guide, who in a very entertaining and professional way told us everything we needed to know about the history and nature of the places we visited. A highly recommended experience!! He is also a great photographer, and thanks to him we have unforgettable memories of these trips.

          Great Guayaquil Mangrove and Chocolate Tour
          I really enjoyed the mangrove tour, but making chocolate was probably the highlight. Eddie is very knowledgeable and lots of fun as well. He is passionate about his country and city and shares his pride and knowledge fully.

          A great trip
          I contacted Eddie as we only had until 1500 to do a tour and he agreed to take us to the Churute Eco reserve and miss out the chocolate experience - which is what we wanted. Unfortunately, the day before our tour he tested positive for Covid, but contacted a replacement guide so that we could still take the tour. Simon, our replacement guide was fantastic and we had a wonderful few hours at Churute, journeying through the Mangroves and then walking the howler monkey trail. I obviously can't comment on Eddie as a guide, as we never met him, but I can comment on his professionalism in finding us another very good guide within 24 hours so that we were not disappointed and could take the tour we wanted.

          Amazing trip to Galapagos, Montañita and Guayaquil
          We booked a 4 day trip to the Galapagos and 3 days to Guayaquil and Montañita, we had the best time possible as we had a great guide who knew all about de Ecuatorian culture and it's beauty. We also have a passion for nature and Eduardo was able to explain to us every detail of every specie taking us to the best locations possible to admire it.

          Authentic Wildlife Experience in Ecuador
          Going “off the beaten” path is a must when on any adventure. As a wildlife and landscape photographer, this is always how I like to make our trips memorable. On our final day in Guayaquil before heading to The Galapagos, we were introduced to Eddie Meneses. Eddie took us on a guided tour through the Chulute Ecological Mangrove Preserve. During the trip, he taught us about the history of the city of Guayaquil, the local area, its indigenous people, and the preserve itself. We stopped at a local fruit stand on the way to the preserve to sample some of the locally grown fruit. We arrived at the preserve to be met by the caretaker of the preserve, a friend of Eddie’s, who took us on a motorized canoe tour through the preserve to see the estuary from a different point of view. During the trip, we were able to witness over 40 species of birds in their natural habitat, taking photos along the way. We were awarded with some crocodile sightings and family of howler monkeys. Eddie was FANTASTIC, passionate, and a genuinely great person. I would HIGHLY recommend that for those travelers who want a real, authentic experience, book a tour with him. I promise you won’t be disappointed.

        Eddie brings facts and energy. We could not help but be engaged the full time were we on the tour and learned a lot about the flora, fauna and history of the city. He answered all questions, offered tips for after our tour, and even dropped us off at a good restaurant for dinner near our hotel.

        We've traveled fairly extensively for decades. Eddie would easily be in the top 1% of tour guides we have enjoyed.

        I have been coming to Guayaquil for over 15 years. This trip I had my daughter with me. Eddie gave us a city tour that was off the charts outstanding! He showed us the city through his eyes. I have a new found love for the city and see why it is commonly referred to as the Pearl of the Pacific. If you are fortunate enough to find yourself in Guayaquil, a city tour or adventure with Eddie is a must! He is very personable and extremely knowledgeable about what he does. He speaks flawless English and is well versed in many cultures around the world. You will not regret hiring him. He is in a class by himself!

        This was my third experience with Eddie, and as always, he exceeded expectations. A native of Guayaquil, he blends history, personal experience, humor, and hands-on activities to provide an immersive, authentic experience. You feel much less like a tourist and more like you are on an epic adventure of fun and learning. He makes each tour unique and engaging, and in spite of how long he’s been a guide, he radiates passion and enthusiasm. The cacao farm tour great exceeded my expectations, and I’ve done the city tour twice with different friends, and I learned a lot of new things both times. Highly recommended!

        Our group of 16 had a ore-arranged walking tour with Eduardo of Guayaquil city highlights. The total tour was approximately 3.5 hours with a convenient break before tackling the hills of old Guayaquil which gave some tour members a chance to bow out which all but 4 of us did. Eduardo was well-informed about everything we saw and we covered a lot of ground. From buildings, to murals to city history, Even iguana park!

        One observation - and I’m sure it’s difficult to keep 16 people , of various ages, moving - but a few tour members commented that Eduardo was very regimented about it and that was a negative for some.

        I’d also like to point out that an elderly member of the group felt unwell during the tour snd eduardo immediately arranged transportation back to the hotel and ensured this woman was safely transported. It was really a kind gesture .

        Eduardo was the best! The ages in our group ranged from 25 to a 91 year old in a wheelchair. He tailored the tour beautifully to make sure everyone was accommodated and had a great time. We learned a lot and also had a lot of fun! I would definitely recommend this tour!
