Pedro Pastor was a phenomenal guide. He is a very skilled birder and our birding success was great. But he is also very knowledgeable about plant life and ecosystems and very generous in sharing his insights. He was also comfortable discussing Ecuadorian history and current Ecuadorian culture.

There were just two of us on this trip, so we spent a lot of time with Pedro. He has a good instinct for when to offer information and insights and when to enjoy the scenery or settings in silence.

I could not be more pleased with Pedro as a guide. We would enthusiastically travel with him again.
