Great introduction to the city if you are fresh off the plane. The beautiful gold leaf Jesuit church and the trip up to ththe panecillo viewpoint were the highlights. Juan was a knowledgable and enthusiastic guide.

Our half day Quito city tour exceeded our expectations. John, our guide was so passionate about Quito, its history and the Ecuadorian people it was infectious. This tour came at the end of a month long visit to Ecuador and Peru and we told John we weren't interested in going inside anymore churches, etc. - just give us the highlights! He smiled and said, Yes, I hear you but let me just take you to this one. From then on we were hooked. We went everywhere and enjoyed and appreciated every building and monument he showed us. Best tour guide ever, a real highlight of our entire trip. I highly recommend it!

The tour was very informative with a very engaging guide. I found it a great value for the price. When I booked the tour I was under the impression that we could go on the tour at different times during that day but on Saturday the tour only leaves at 8:30 am which was an inconvenience and was not made clear on Viator or on the confirmation email. Another annoyance was that the tour did not include entrance fees to different churches, entry prices are not expensive but I wish we had been told before hand.

Excellent tour. Very good value for money. The guide , Juan was very knowledgeable, pleasant and helpful.
I recommend it as the first thing you should do in Quito, to get acquainted with the city.

Javier was an AWESOME guide and good driver also - Ricardo? Always there when we were ready. Nice balance with riding in the compact bus and walking. Excellent history an overview of Old Town Quito in both English and Spanish. Covered major sites and interesting others. A plus is hotel pick up. A+

We would definitely do this again, it was definitely worth the price. The stops and views were wonderful. Our guide, Maria added much value to the tour. Her knowledge and passion for history and current events was apparent and we enjoyed spending the morning with her. She is lovely.
