This was our first visit to South America. We stopped in Quito on our way to the Galapagos Islands. We had a lovely tour with Anna Marie! She was thorough, answered all of our questions and gave us excellent recommendations for dining.
Fabian was extremely knowledgable about all of the sites and history of Quito and Ecuador. He provided numerous insights that would not be possible using a guide book and the informational signs at the sites. Very good tour!
Our guide Jose was great! He was very knowledgeable, spoke fluent English and took us to many attractions in the Old Town. He also took us to two viewing overlooks that are not part of or accessible by commercial tours. His wealth of information and enthusiasm made the tour really enjoyable and informative. I would definitely recommend this tour.
This tour was a great way to view Quito and to learn some of the history of Quito and Ecuador. Tour guide Francisco was very knowledgeable and friendly. We drove up to Panecillo Hill for spectacular views of the city and great photo opportunities. We then drove to the Old Town for a walking tour including La Ronda Street, La Compañía church, San Francisco church, Independence Plaza, etc. We even got to see a religious procession through the streets. Very interesting and enjoyable tour, and worthwhile to learn some of the history, which we probably would not have learned on our own without the guide.
What a fabulous way to see all the sites of Quito. We opted for the private tour and would highly recommend it. Our guide was knowledgeable, friendly and took us on an in depth tour of Quito. If you only have time for one tour this would be it.
