Our guide was amazing!!! We began at the Quito market and spent quite some time there exploring and understanding the products of Ecuador. We then went to a bakery where we helped make and then enjoy
the delicious products they are famous for. We then were invited to a wonderful home in Quito where we experienced the cuisine ie empanandas' of all types!! Delicious!! Would definitely recommend and do this tour again!!!!

The tour was everything I had hoped for. I was picked up at my hotel by Byron, who was very amiable and knowledgeable. We visited a pastry shop, a meringue shop and then had a fabulous tipico ecuadorian lunch at the home of Graciella. Got to assist in some parts of the preparation and mostly see behind the scenes food preparation Ecuador. Along the way, Byron shared the history of Quito (and Ecuador), various viewpoints, the main center, churches and museums. I learned alot about the country from him, past and future and real enjoyed being immersed with the locals. I speak a little spanish, so this was also an opportunity for me to brush up. A terrific tour and highly recommend.
