My wife and I were picked up right on time at 5:30am at our Guayaquil hotel. We were delivered to our birding guides Ivette Solis and Jorge Abad who conducted an excellent 4-hour birding tour of Cerro Blanco followed by a thorough 1-hour review of all bird species seen. It was an excellent 1/2 day birding tour due to two very capable guides.
The guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. We saw a good number of endemics.
