Why not enrich your adventure in Ecuador with the help of an English-speaking guide? They will guide you in this new environment, while sharing their knowledge of the country in English.
First, they will communicate their passion and love for the country. They will explain everything in English, enabling you to fully enjoy your trip without missing out on anything. Being local or living on site, their view of the country and its culture changes. They will fascinate you with their stories and anecdotes. It is the little local touch that can radically change your perspective on Ecuador.
Leave your stress behind - you have nothing to fuss over, just follow the guide! It is a way to optimise your chances for a perfect trip. A new environment, a different culture and a foreign language can be difficult to manage for some. Being accompanied by a local guide allows you to cope with all this much more serenely.
Finally, it is a personalised service that allows you to get off the beaten track. Personally, it is this last argument which made me choose to hire an English-speaking guide. They know all the little wonders of the cities visited and know the sites that may not appear in paperback guides.
Depending on the area you visit - in some places you should not hesitate to hire a guide, notably in the national parks such as Cotopaxi or the Galapagos Islands. It is even essential in the latter case. English-speaking naturalist guides will explain all the mysteries of evolution observable in the archipelago.
Take a guided tour of the historic cities of Quito or Cuenca. These cities have a rich past. Several agencies offer half-day or full-day guided tours of the historic centres of both cities. Don't miss this chance to learn more about these beautiful cities.
If you want to learn about the peoples and communities living in the Ecuadorian jungle, nothing could be more useful than to start out with a guide. It would be complicated to do otherwise as certain communities or natural reserves are very remote and are therefore impossible to reach unless you have a good understanding of the territory.
The most amazing thing about Ecuadorian Amazonia is its unique ecosystem! Its biodiversity is extremely varied, with more than 25,000 species of plants, not to mention the animals. It is a paradise for nature lovers and all those who want to observe the flora and fauna. Guides will be of crucial importance in such an adventure. They will help you locate and identify the species. Thanks to your local English-speaking guide, the forest will hold no more secrets for you!
