As advertised whirlwind Quito tour
, Jul 2019
Carlos from Lead Adventures was an outstanding guide, starting off with a very punctual beginning 5 minutes early. Even though the Basilica was almost 20 minutes late to open, Carlos walked us around the area and provided both facts and entertaining anecdotes. We should have asked for more time in Centro Historico and less at the equator, as there is so much rich architecture and history in Quito and so little time to see it. Overall, we enjoyed the tour and would have done it again if we only had 1-2 days to see the highlights of Quito.

Luis of Lead Adventures was the best! He was very detailed in explaining about his city and country. He kept us safe. He helped me get the wonderful photos I collect. We enjoyed our full day with Luis.

This was a fantastic tour. Our tour guide, Dario Morales, was awesome. We had my 74 year old father with us and he was very sensitive, going very slowly and talking right to him. The Gondola ride was great, we were blessed with clear, awesome weather! It is a great tour to introduce you to the city.
