Dante, our guide was extremely knowledgeable, patient, and professional. Could not have been better. The tour was awesome. The museum is really extraordinary. Our museum guide moved us through one after another experience to show the uniqueness of being at the center point of the equator. Altogether an unforgettable excursion.

This was a great experience! Spending time and learning about the equator and history of the Ecuador with the experienced tour guides at the equator was fascinating. Our guide was so friendly and knowledgeable about Quito and the area - we had so many questions for him and he was more than happy to educate us. The tour includes a small hike in a beautiful crater that is inhabited by farmers. So pretty. Not in any tour guides so it was a special find!

This was a great introduction to Quito and area on our first day in the city, thanks largely to our knowledgeable and affable guide, Dante. He answered every question we had honestly and enthusiastically. The short tour afforded us the flexibility to do things that were important and of interest to us. Highly recommended to get a good overview and the unique experience of visiting the equator!

El guía turístico y el chofer llegaron puntualmente, luego fuimos hacia la Mitad del Mundo, en donde se nos explico todos los detalles relacionados que se encontraban en el Museo, los científicos, las razas e idiomas que hablan en Ecuador-Quito y alrededores.
El guía esta muy educado frente a los diversos temas y preguntas que le hacíamos.
Nos gusto mucho, se recomienda.

Overall a very good trip. Dante is an excellent guide and I would recommend his company. Only change that I would recommend would be to allow guests on the tour the time to access the Mitad del Mundo monument site at their own cost, optional, instead of stopping outside for a quick photo opportunity.

Excellent service, called for at our condo by English-speaking crew in a comfortable van with good driver. Guide Natalia was very competent and personable. Intinan Museum is well worth the trip, lots of cool photo ops. But what's all this about a geobotanical reserve? Never saw it, unless it's up behind that ball thing.
