Hi, I'm Darío! I'm a craft beer brewer and gourmet. I have 10 years walking around every corner of Guayaquil and studying its history... and, of course, its food! I decided to start running these free tours with the desire of showing everything my city has to offer and giving an unique experience to every visitor. From Guayaquil of yore to the modern Guayaquil, you will be amazed with this city. And this is just the beginning!

Guide did not show up. We booked one night in advance, Dario confirmed the tour and the meeting point. He also told us how to recognize him and to bring an umbrella in case of rain. Unfortunately we ended up waiting for him for 20 minutes in vain.

Me encanto el tour con el gurú Dario, sabe mucho de la historia de Guayaquil y en el proceso te explica, si uno desea sobre la cerveza artesanal que el mismo elabora
