It was a Spanish tour with a bit of English thrown in. At the beginning she spoke a lot of Spanish. For us it was her name and the driver.
Then it was off in Spanish for an extended period. The last part of the tour took us through the Old Town but no commentary was given. By the time we got back to our original starting point it was dark. This tour started at noon. I think they should start earlier.

This ended up being a solo tour. I loved my tour guide. He was smart and spoke perfect English. I learned a lot of the history of Quito and got some amazing pictures. He truly seemed to care about my experience.
Amazing tour, great guide, a highlight of our stay in Ecuador!
Our guide, Fabian, was very well informed and eager to share his love and knowledge of the sights we visited in
a clear and interesting way. We especially enjoyed visiting the Intinan Museum at the Middle of the World and experiencing
the differences from one side of the equator to the next.
Our only 'complaint' is that he Viator booking confirmation did not provide a specific pick-up place/time and we had to phone
their USA 1-800 number to get a local contact in Ecuador.
BUT - all worked out perfectly!!
The driver was great. The tour of the museum was super interesting especially with the cool experiments.
Amazing private tour. Santiago was our guide and we saw a bit of everything. We also got to go on the cable car to a beautiful lookout. We switched around the tour a bit since we had already seen a good amount of old town Quito. Our guide was fun, attentive, and the sights we saw were amazing. It was nice doing a private tour so we could go where we wanted, eat what we wanted, and see what we wanted. I recommend it.
An amazing and super personalized tour. Charly is engaging, flexible, knowledgeable, and fun. He worked hard to pack as much as was desired into the day. Outstanding!
Loved this tour....it was exactly as described and not rushed so I was able to see everything. Would definitely recommend to anyone visiting Quito.
We were with Raul, who drove his own Honda CRV even as he toured us through Quito and Mitad. Raul spoke very good English and had a good sense of humor.
We did Panecillo Hill, then did the Old Town. In the itinerary, we were supposed to drop by the Basilica but we skipped that. We also didnt do San Juan Mirador which was also in the itinerary. But we did do Independence Plaza and checked out the beautiful churches. We even went to the Metropolitan Cultural Center which wasnt mentioned in the itinerary.
We then drove for a long distance to the center of the world. In the itinerary, I got the impression we were going to do both Middle of the World park as well as the Intinan Museum with its interactive experiments. But Raul gave us only a choice of one or the other. We chose Intinan still not sure if that was the right way to go. Then he was about to head back to Quito to drop us off when I reminded him that we were supposed to also do Pululahua crater. So we did.
Raul was a great guide but I really wish you didnt have to remind tour guides about which itinerary items were being missed.
The Mitad del Mundo Tour was best at the real GPS identified location as you get to learn a lot there. I wished we spent more time there instead. There were only two experiments you can do there however.
The fake older location at the equator line was great for taking pictures. However the museums around this place were simple and not very educational.

The description of the trip is not correct-the walk to the volcano bottom is very difficult and steep-we did not have lunch at the bottom, the restaurant was closed. It was a long day, could be better arranged.
I had an excellent experience. The tour guide was very knowledgeable about the city and spoke good English. We saw all the major attractions in Quito and had a nice lunch. The tour was from 9:30 AM- 4:00 PM! Money well spent, this was exactly what I was hoping it would be. I would highly recommend it!
Our tour guide Francisco was fantastic - this was a such a great way to see the sights of the city in a short period of time! Highly recommended!!
I really enjoyed this tour with Francisco. We didn't know much about Quito, so we let him lead us where we needed to go. We went to a small museum it was a bit cheesy, where zero latitude was measured with a GPS as found, after the Middle of the World Monument was constructed. We weren't overly keen to just see the monument so Francisco pulled over on the side of the street to let us take some pics from outside, saving us some time. Francisco is a very knowledgeable guide taking us into various churches and explaining the histories to us. He made sure he warned us if we asked to go anywhere that had an entrance fee that was not already covered by the tour. If we had more time in Quito, I would have loved to have had him take us around for another day.
The Bucket Pass brought us to great places: the Quito tour bus was convenient Mitad del Mundo was interesting and unique at La Capilla del Hombre and Guayasamin's Museum the guided tour brought the artists' vision to life La Compania Church is beautiful Basilica del voto National is an amazing church with great views of the city. We also enjoyed the tour of the Presidential Palace, shopping at the market place, seeing the angel on the mountain, and so much more!

Latin adventures is top notch! They office staff (Carolina) made sure we saw exactly what we wanted and gave us recommendations. Our tour guide Francisco was amazing! He was incredibly knowledgeable and informative. Highly recommend this tour company!
Cheap alternative to other offers. Still, it's a tourist trap, one of three centers of the world I saw.
This was an amazing way to spend the day in Quito! Francisco was our tour guide and he was amazing! He as very knowledgable and took us to see humming birds then we hiked through the rain forest to an amazing waterfall. We had our family of 8 and everyone had a fantastic time! Highly recommended
Doing what: Mindo Cloud Forest Day Trip from Quito
Our guide Daniel and driver were wonderful. It was fun because they new the sites so well and are so proud of their city. In seven hours we saw a great deal of the city along with a wonderful lunch at a great local spot. Seeing Quito without the help of a driver and guide is not a good idea.
Highly recommended!! Our tour guide Daniel was very friendly and knowledgeable. Really enjoyed this tour!!
