Perfect Day, Cable Car, Hike, Swings, Mitad Del Mundo, Lunch & Museum
Diane_H, Jul 2022
Raul was an incredible tour guide, with great personality. We started with the cable car ride, then a hike up to the swings, then hiked back down. He allowed us to taylor our day and skip a couple of the monuments and spend more time at Mitad del Mundo and the incredible indigenous village tour. We stopped at a wonderful restaurant for lunch before continuing on to the museum. Raul made this a Perfect Day!! Plenty of time to enjoy what was most important to us. 👍

All the highlights
Bianca_M, Jul 2021
Our tour with Luis was the perfect way to see Quito’s highlights in a day. Everything went very smoothly, he was a wealth of information and he made sure we were secure and relaxed for the experience. The view from Teleforico was incredible and we were blessed with a very clear sky. There was a lot to see in the Old Town and I felt like Luis was great at pointing to important little details in the history that we would have missed on our own. The Inti-ñan museum was a nice way to end our day. Luis was great at answering our questions and really made for a special experience.
Response from Host, Jul 2021

Excellent Guide and Experience
Griselda_F, Mar 2021
We had a private tour guide, Luis, who was absolutely amazing. He was very knowledgeable (about almost any topic you can think of), he was fluent in both English & Spanish, he made our experience that much more worth it that we booked a last minute tour the following day with him. We first headed to the cable car to take advantage of the weather, then we went to the actual middle of the world museum (very informative/insightful about the native people) and lastly, we took a city tour which gave meaning, value, and cultural appreciation to QUito. Luis was great at tending to our needs and adjusting the schedule to ensure we had a great time that was personalized to our needs/wants. Highly recommend Ecuador Best Tours.
Response from Host, Apr 2021
Thank you so much! This time it was only the two of you, and we always try to customize this day trip in Quito when people belong to the same family-group. We are glad to know you loved this full day in Quito. Best wishes, Ecuador Best Tours,

Stunning Quito
Mark_V, Jan 2020
Had a super if not tiring day with guide Michael as we toured the beautiful city Quito. First up the famous cable cars and we had a clear day to see the stunning scenery of Quito. Always be careful not to push too much at the higher altitudes. From there it was off to the equator and museum for some interesting information and demonstrations on the difference between north and south. After a quick local lunch we did a nice window tour of new Quito, the business and retail center. I was staying in the historic district so there was no need to tour there. We then went up to the Virgin Mary statue, and Michael gave me really nice history of her meaning. One last stop at the famous La Ronda street known for its designer pubs and restaurants. A full day for sure...and I was so appreciative that Michael let me design part of the tour. Quito is a huge city with many faces. I believe we saw all of them on our tour.

Michael was a great tour guide. He took us where the weather would be good so we can see the best of everything in case the weather got bad. He even changed the tour up based on things we had already seen. Great tour guide, great trip.
