Mauro has been working with the Galakiwi team in Quito for almost as long as we can remember and has more than 20 years of experience working in the tourism industry.
He knows Ecuador like the back of his hand, having guided tours to pretty much every part of the country, including working as a guide in the Amazon jungle. If you're thinking of adding a trip to Otavalo, Cuenca, Mindo, or elsewhere in Ecuador, Mauro will make sure it happens and will organize the tour himself, or with one of our other quality guides in mainland Ecuador. In addition to knowing everything about Ecuador, Mauro looks after ensuring our Quito and Guayaquil hotel bookings and airline reservations are all in order.
With a passion for showing travelers the culture and natural wonders of Ecuador, Mauro is always willing to share his wealth of knowledge of this small, amazing country. If you want to try some ceviche, hornado, cuy, llapingachos, fritada de chancho or other Ecuadorian delicacies, ask Mauro where to go in and around Quito!
Quite often one of the first Galakiwi team members you'll meet, Mauro works with our airport transfer drivers and often personally meets you at the airport if he isn't already on one of our other day tours or short trips in Ecuador.
What our travelers say about Mauro:
"Mauro was very knowledgeable about Quito, punctual and helpful. We were surprised to learn that many areas are not safe, even during the day. We were glad we travelled with him during this time!" - Donna Tosi, USA
