Enjoyed the trip, guide could have been more helpful. We were dropped off at the main monument and then found our way to the secondary equator spot where the guides were extremely helpful. Highly recommend going down the road to this area! Bring your passport to get stamped.

Nice tour. It was a bit hard to understand the driver on the bus. Microphone and accent didn't help. Museums were really cool. Wish we had more time at the actual monument. Would have liked to have seen a few more of the exhibits there. It was a good afternoon though.

The young man took on a bilingual tour. However the Swedish couple didn't receive the same level of info. I know because I'm bilingual. Also they received a lackluster guide at the intanan museum. Oursspanish-speaking guide was wonderful! Also he rushed us through the main park. 20 minutes to shop,take pictures etc. Ridiculous! His English wasn't good enough. His attitude left a lot to be desired. He was the only guide in Quito I didn't tip

We had a very late start, but the tour was great. We enjoyed everything and learned a lot. I was even able to balance an egg on a nailhead! Our guide was very knowledgable and informed. We would recommend this tour to others.
