What people are saying about Ezequiel


Extremely experienced, personable, generous, compassionate, professional, and fun. Always looked after our own safety first, as well as others on trail while keeping our ultimate objectives in mind. In the face of adversity they patiently gathered data, made safe decisions, and clearly communicated with the team. These are climbers that I would want on every team.


Ezequiel was a great patient, professional, diplomatic and firm guide making us tourists feel confident being guided by him. Santi’s professionalism and calm and EQ throughout the expedition was outstanding making it a very positive experience for the tourists undertaking this difficult journey. As a new guide, Gaston was very compassionate, helpful, patient and professional and showed high EQ.


Great guy, and great guide!


Ezequiel is an excellent guide. He is experienced, a good communicator, patient, and funny. He (together with our co-lead) identified the right one-day summit window despite a very windy forecast. During high winds, he repeatedly did rounds of all the tents through the night to ensure they were secure. He gave confidence and encouragement to each climber. I'd gladly climb with him again.


Ezequiel along with the other guide Santiago are the best guides I've ever had. Ezequiel is very compassionate, caring, knowledgeable, helpful, safe, wise and fun! He gives 200 percent and 24/7. You will be in the best of care! I treasure the time I had with these two guides and will never forget them and their leadership!
