Client Testimonials


Julio was one of the best leaders I have encountered in more than 50 treks. He was extremely knowledgable about the cultural history, botany, and bird life of the area and communicated very well with the clients. I was also very pleased that he is a leader among local environmentalists and was able to give us a good perspective of the problems the region is facing. He was extremely helpful in all respects and—beyond that—he became a good friend.
