Excellent day
, Sep 2021
Mario was the best guide. We had an excellent morning at the cocoa farm then a great visit in Guayaquil. This was a great day. Be sure, when he asks if you’d care to visit the cemetery at the end of your day, you say yes. Please look into this tour should your travels take you to Guayaquil. You will not regret the experience.
A must experience!

This is nothing short of a fantastic trip! However, what truly makes it an incredible experience is the thought and perspective the host, Mario, puts into it. Additionally, the interactions with the family at their farm is something you can't truly appreciate until you experience it; at a cultural, culinary, and personal level. This tour was something we added at the last minute, for our final day in Ecuador, after having already spent 11 days exploring the country. What we experienced that day, took our overall positive trip and took it to a next level.

I had the best day on my Cacao tour with Mario. He customized my tour to make sure he would take me to places of my interest as well as what was planned (we went to a plant nursery so I could see local species as well). He is a very hands on and professional guide involved in making sure you have a great experience. As a solo traveller I felt very safe regarding social distancing etc. I would recommend Mario and and any of his tours for people looking for an inclusive adventure while still wanting to see the sights and stay safe. The farm itself was a lovely experience. You get to have a part in every stop of the chocolate-making process. There are other fruit trees and crops to see. Many things to experience in one day!
great experience

a very nice day! Mario is a super kind guide that love his job and his country. he let me appreciate the city of guayaquil and discover a part of local life. the visit of the farm was fantastic: I discover and learn a lot of things about cacao and chocolate. the place is something special too. in the afternoon I discover Guayaquil : the colors of the city and the most beautiful places are so good ! (I started with a negative feeling about that city, but now I’m happy to have totally changed my opinions!). I absolutely recommande this tour!
Good value for money

Cocoa Farm Experience

This was a great full-day tour with lunch. Very educational. We toured a small Cocoa farm, learned about picking Cocoa, drying and roasting cocoa beans. We made our own chocolate by grinding beans. We also had lunch at the farm. We also toured some highlights of the city of Guayaquil—a beautiful seaport city. Highly recommend
Tour and guide: both EXCELLENT
