You HAVE to do this. The perfect Ecuadorian experience

An absolutely amazing experience! Mario was knowledgeable, charming and went out of his way when we asked to do some shopping on the way back! The farm was so interesting and diverse. Niffa was love,y; her demonstration of the chocolate making process was fascinating and she is so, so friendly. I can recommend this experience, in fact I would go so far as saying it is a must-do! Thank you Mario and Niffa

A truly wonderful day trip

This was the most remarkable and memorable day of our trip to Ecuador. Our guide, Mario, was extremely knowledgeable about the history of cacao in Ecuador as he comes from a distinguished cacao-farming family. He was able to gives us all kinds of insights into the country and its people as well. We were not rushed through any part of the tour and had all our questions answered thoughtfully no matter the topic. The farm and its natural setting are idyllic, set on the bend of a jungle river. We saw charcoal being made by the farm owner who is a charming person along with his entire family (a family-run operation). We made our own chocolate “from scratch” and ate the result with sweet bananas which was absolutely delicious. Then we had a delicious lunch served outdoors by the family. This day was off the charts in terms of being interesting and in terms of rural charm and beauty. We were also given (as an option, which we gladly accepted) a tour of Guayaquil’s most famous old cemetery when we got back to town. Very cool. Highly recommended. Don’t think twice, just book it.

Dear Allan, Thank you for writing this wonderful review. I really enjoyed our time together and it makes me happy to know that you did too. I love to show the cemetery since it makes me so proud. I hope I can make it to BC so we can meet again and share more stories. Warmly, Mario

Such a wonderful tour! We not only learned about the chocolate making process, we actually made it ourselves. What fun! We especially enjoyed spending time with Mario, our tour guide. He was very informative and made the tour feel very personalized. We highly recommend this trip and Mario!!!

Incredible Experience - Very Authentic

Mario was a great guide who really cares about his work and is passionate about it. From the timing to the engagement, it was 100% about his clients. We talked the whole way about the farm to learn about Ecuador and from there you really could feel immersed in the farming and Cocoa culture. Great relationship with the farm family and history of the crop. Highly recommend!

Niffa the owner of the cocoa farm along with Mario are very knowledgeable and it shows they love what they do. They went over and above our expectations for this tour. The lunch was delicious and we enjoyed every minute. We wish them continued success. We enjoyed meeting the family who helped make this more enjoyable too.

This was a great experience. We were picked up at our hotel and greeted by Mario. He is a very ambitious person and eager to please. His knowledge of the area, farm tour and chocolate making made for a great family trip. It was a great way to escape the hustle and bustle of the busy city and see the countryside. Went with my parents and children, great for all ages.

We truly enjoyed the trip to the Cacao Plantation and would recommend it to anyone! The visit was to the plantation of local cacao farmers and was very authentic. Our guide and the family were extremely kind and treated us to the same meal that they shared. Having heard that we'd already taken a city tour, the guide showed us a local fruit market and other city sites after the tour based on our interests. I hope to return to take other family members on this tour--I enjoyed it that much!
