Recommendation for Edwin Loja, driver

Best driver in Ecuador: Edwin Loja

I started researching drivers four months prior to traveling to Ecuador. Thankfully three other people from GringoPost recommended Edwin Loja. I contacted ten plus drivers and asked for their cost, picture of their vehicle, if they had the proper paperwork to drive us from GYE to Cuenca, and if they spoke English. I got quotes mostly ranging from $115 to $140, except for Edwin who quoted me the best price. Many of the drivers were wanting to charge extra since we had 8 pieces of luggage and a dog. However, Edwin was just going to charge a flat fee, regardless of the amount of luggage. He was quick to respond to every email I sent and he confirmed the trip with us twice.
He promptly picked me and my family up at 10:30 AM from a nearby hotel and loaded up all of our luggage in his large 7 passenger van (But during COVID only 5 people are allowed) with enough room for at least 10 pieces of luggage. His van was extremely clean with hand sanitizer and water at our disposal. He wore his mask the entire drive and also informed us that he gets a COVID test every two weeks and sanitizes his van before each new client. He also showed us all of the proper paperwork to legally transport us from GYE to Cuenca. Throughout the trip he gave us tons of information about all of the different towns and sights. He let us stop to get food, use the bathroom, and take pictures at some amazing scenic areas. He was a very cautious driver and never used his phone while driving. When we arrived at our Air BnB he unloaded all of our luggage, helped us get everything in the house and made sure we had what we needed before he left. He also informed us that he could take us anywhere in Ecuador we wanted to go, run errands if needed, translate for us, help us find a place to live...
Finding a truly nice, honest, reliable person like Edwin has been a blessing. Because he has done such an amazing job, we will only be using his services while we are in Ecuador.
