Guide at a Glance
Our Overnight Jungle Tour
I’m Michelle, Gari’s wife. I’m not actually a guide. I’m the one who gets everything started, the one you call or email when you are interested in doing a tour with us. Gary and Tarquino take over after that.
When you write us, I’ll write back with all the info you asked for and most likely a bunch you didn’t :-). I’ll also encourage you ask us for help with anything that comes up for you. We are a great resource, feel free to consider us your go to people in Ecuador. From where to go when you arrive (and how best to get there), suggestions on where to stay and what to do in other parts of the country, to transportation issues. We’re happy to help.
Hmm, the bio part. I was born in the USA, in Chicago, but mostly grew up in Colorado. I met Gari when I came to Ecuador as a volunteer nurse back in 2004. We cooked up the idea for our business at that time and moved to the states in order to raise funds for our idea in 2005. We finally made it back in 2010 and opened our guiding business in January of 2013. Whew!
