What people are saying about Eduardo



Eduardo is INCREDIBLE - thoughtful, skilled, competent. I had the best time and my climbing improved at least one grade. Best recommendation!!



Eduardo did an excellent job guiding us on backcountry tours in the Farellones area in Chile! Communication before the trip was excellent. He was on time both days. He listened to what we asked and delivered exactly what we were looking for. He was knowledgeable, fun to hang out with, and his English was excellent. We could not have asked for a better guide!
