Dear Ana Carolina,
We have returned to Canada after a wonderful 3 weeks in Ecuador and are
already planning a trip back one day.
We just wanted to let you know how much we appreciated our guides. JC was
very informative and when we ran into him by chance later on in our trip it
was like meeting an old friend.
We spent most of our time with Andres, of course, who was wonderful. Not
only was he full of interesting information he became one of our family. He
was always punctual, organized and willing to accommodate our interests and
needs. Of particular note was his excellent driving: at one point we got
caught up in fog high in the mountains which could have been very dangerous.
We felt totally safe with Andres driving at all times. He has a great sense
of humour and was really able to relate to all of us (ranging in age from 13
– 49!). We hope the next time we are in Ecuador we can have Andres as our
We will be recommending Ehhec to all our friends.
We would also like to extend our appreciation to you, Ana Carolina, as we
know you had to step in right before Christmas. You made the preparations
very easy from far away.

Estimada Ana Carolina,
While in Quito on January 2nd, we stop by Café Cultura but you were not
there. We would like to thank you for your excellent support. Furthermore,
we greatly enjoyed our excursion through Ecuador, it is a beautiful country.
I would also appreciate if you would please thank Fausto on our behalf. He
is a great guide, very good driver, very friendly and considerate. We really
enjoyed our week with him.
Prospero Año Nuevo!

The entire experience was fantastic!
Fernando was a great driver--punctual, informative, and courteous. I will
use him again!
And the hotel staff was great and friendly.
I will be in touch with you again, probably in February, to schedule
something when my mother comes to visit.
Thanks, again, for all your assistance.

Dear Emma & Laszlo,
Mission accomplished. We had a most wonderful experience visiting the Exclusive Hotels & Hacienda properties and getting to know some wonderful people along the way. Staying at the EHHEC properties is an incredible way for tourists to experience the best of Ecuador and to learn about each unique part of Ecuador!
I have highlighted EHHEC as much as possible in our "Ecuador" article and I hope the unique experience travelers have at each property, as well as the beauty and hospitality of the haciendas.
Thank you for the wonderful Ecuador experience!

A fantastic trip. Everything was near perfect. Natalia is the finest guide we have had in 40+ years of travel (over 100 countries). This is an unbelievable deal and Ecuador deserves to be near the top of anybody’s travel list.
Café Cultura – would much rather stay here than a Hilton. Loved it! Hacienda Pinsaqui – beautiful place. Hacienda Umbria – were fortunate to have Alvaro Jr as host. What a fantastic place.
Happy to share more thoughts on line or on phone but this was a great trip. All of us have lived and traveled overseas most of our adult lives so it takes something special to impress us. Ecuador is a great, relatively unknown, treasure. Natalia is way too good to be a guide. Knowledge (culture, history, flora, fauna, etc.) encyclopedic and the best disposition possible. Simply the best.
