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.

To find a professional local guide rich in knowledge and a love and passion for culture, history and photography is hard to find in a bundle. Eddie Meneses is just that! The experience that he shared is one that all travelers should par taken in. I myself am a destination expert for the State of Florida and to meet someone that is truly passionate about there destination makes the visit so well worth it. Highly recommend if you are traveling to anywhere that is within Eddie's area that you use his services. A++ Eddie takes the time to hand pick local people to also enhance the experience from the driver that navigated the local roads, the the people at a local market ( telling there stories ) to the boat captain and son that shared our adventure on our trip it is a bundle of professionals that created the overall experience to bring back to our families to share. Do not miss out on one of his adventures!

My wife and I were lucky enough to have Eduardo "Eddie" Meneses as our private tour guide for the Guayaquil portion of our Equdor/Galapagos vacation. He is amazingly knowledgeable about both his country's history, culture and wildlife. Our one day tour included a walking excursion of the city, but the real highlight was about 20 miles outside of the city at the Hacienda Cacao y Mango where we went through the process of making chocolate, from harvesting the cocao beans, through roasting and grinding the beans to cocao paste. We were also interested in the local wildlife and Eddie has an extraordinary knowledge of his countries flora and birds.
