Five of us had the pleasure of having Sylvia as our Metropolitan Touring guide when we visited Ecuador from May 2 to May 5. She was extremely knowledgeable – despite innumerable questions it wasn’t until the fourth day when I asked her about a coat of arms on an obscure church in Cuenca that she didn’t have an answer. Her English was superb and she had an enjoyable sense of humour. She was the best guide I have ever travelled with. Congratulations for employing such an accomplished guide. She made our trip all the more enjoyable.
