Javier

My name is Javier Vallejo and I am originally from Cuenca – Ecuador, one of the most beautiful cities in this country.

Since I was a little boy I have been attracted to and interested in traveling and getting to know different places and people, so, after I finished high school I took the decision to study tourism. I did three years of Tourism and Hospitality Management and then I decided to travel and explore outside Ecuador in order to grow and discover myself. So, I went to Belgium for a year and I can assure you it was one of the greatest experiences of my life. It opened my mind and I was able to learn about a different culture, different language, but it also made me realize that there’s no place like my country ‘Ecuador’.

Then I came back to continue my career and also I managed my time in order to work as a tour guide on my free time. It’s been more than six years of incredible experiences. I’ve been almost everywhere in Ecuador, helping myself to learn how to Love Life! I’ve met people from many countries and all five continents. I can’t imagine myself in an office for 8 hours a day. Therefore, being a tour guide is perfect for me. I love spending time outdoors, in nature, hiking mountains, or just walking through markets and cobblestone streets. Now, more than ever, I am sure I was born to be a tour guide. My mission is to make people’s visit a wonderful experience and to draw smiles on their faces, showing them the beautiful diversity they can discover in my country. Helping them to understand that ‘All you need is Ecuador’.

*Please note that this tour may be guided by another local guide, always providing a genuine approach to the local culture.
