Guided tours with slow-motion leaders:

Guided tours with slow-motion leaders: Ecuador is full of great adventures, exciting roads and marvelous off road paths you would love. Some choose to come to our country with the idea of making the most of this experience, having in mind this country has three worlds in such a tiny space if you compare it to the others in the region where it is located.

For this reason tourists look for guided tours, that helps them to visit the most they can and sure… helps them with the language limitations. Paying extra for a guided tour it’s not that crazy when you have that much to visit but not so much time to do it. You begin your search, chatting with agencies, until you settle on the one that seems the best option.

You can be sure about the general details of the tour, such as accommodation,  activities and so on.. but what about the guide? What if they end up with a sluggish guide, the type you want to overtake constantly during the tour? Even worse, what if this guy is boring and with no idea of what he is talking about.  Experiencing all what is supposed to be pure adrenaline but in “slow motion “… so much fun right? NOT at ALL


That’s why having someone fully bilingual and preferably native, but also suited to this adventure type, is crucial. Most riders don’t want to stare at someone else’s tail light for days, waiting for them to speed up. Agencies prioritizing customer experiences ensure guides are adaptable to any situation, particularly in the Adventure tourism market. The final product end is not what the customer is gonna visit. Not just the hotels or places matters, as it can be the best city you will ever be, or the most extreme path but with a dull leader, it can make you lose your money and your patience. 

In today’s chronicles we will be talking about… good guides 😉 

What makes a guide a GOOD one? 

  • Fearless: Your guide should not be scared of speeding up once in a while, to maintain a good level of adrenaline and fun during the ride. Even better if they know what to do if someone falls, you might end up eating dirt in off-road adventures! So why not have someone who knows when and how to help and some mechanics too. 
  • Experienced: Your guide must know the best routes whether you want to go off-roading or pavement. Nothing better than someone who has visited and ridden all those routes before. 
  • Friendly: Who doesn’t like someone who has good social skills, you will be traveling for so many days that it would be nice to become his friend too. 
  • Native: This is a plus, as they likely know the country well, including prime spots for photos and great restaurants. A guide well-versed in culture, traditions, and fun facts about each place makes long-distance rides much easier to enjoy.
  • Bilingual/polyglot: It’s easier; fluent communication ensures they can translate everything to locals who don’t speak your language. In Ecuador, most people speak only Spanish, posing challenges for foreigners who don’t know the language.

Our customers have spoken, they love our guide Pancho. 

We got the best one, we love you Panchito 😉
