This was my first Viator tour and Myriam was wonderful. Knowledgeable, fun, and flexible. The downtown area was closed during our tour but she was able to make changes on the fly and assemble an even better experience for us.

Great day

Amazing, great, interesting, knowledgeable in history and not only in history Diego tour guide A big thanks from our family for such beautiful day
Great tour!
Gabrielle_R, Jul 2021
Loved it. Francisco was so knowledgeable and accommodating. Try to do this tour after you've been in Quito for a few days. The altitude was a bit much for me to handle.
Great tour, but keep in mind if you are doing the tour solo and no one else signs up, it costs extra

This tour was a great tour! My guide Carlos was really knowledgeable, cool, and fun to talk to. In addition to what was included in the tour, he took me to Casa Agave to learn about the history behind agave in Ecuador and we did a tasting of various agave products there. Since this wasn't part of the tour, I did have to pay $10 to get in. Museo Itiñan, Teleferiqo, and the historic center of Quito were all fun too! Got to see and learn a lot about Quito and Ecuador. The only reason I gave 4 stars instead of 5 is because I didn't like that the agency didn't tell me until the night before that there was no other guests in the tour and that I would have to pay $75 extra to do the tour privately and $20 extra since I was getting picked up from Wyndham Quito Airport. I didn't mind paying these fees and I understand it's more costly for the agency to run the tour under these circumstances, but I would've liked it if they told me about it at least 2-3 days before instead of the night before so I could decide if I wanted to cancel or not.
Response from Host, Jul 2021
Dear customer. Thanks for your comment. Currently, there are not many travelers because of the COVID-19, so it is sometimes difficult to reunite more passengers for the same trip. We, unfortunately, couldn´t find more people for your trip. It clearly says in the voucher that this tour requires at least 2 passengers if you book in small groups. We give our customers the option to pay us an extra charge (OPTIONAL) for a private tour (just only in case, we do not have the minimum number require,) We always wait until a day before departure to communicate with our customers because the platform is open online 24/7 and we can receive new reservations. We offer free pick up in Quito´s hotels. You stayed in a hotel nearby the airport which is 50 minutes away from the city, in this case, we offer an option with an extra charge for pick up and drop off. Your comment is really helpful for future customers. Thank you again.
Quito experience

Dante was very accommodating! We flew in so late that he allowed us to break the trip into two half days! Diego our guide and he was a wealth of knowledge! We loved all of the places we visited and there was even an additional chocolate tasting. When we all got hungry we stopped at a restaurant and ate together some topica food with the driver and guide and talked about life.
Great way to see the highlights of Quito

Diego, my guide from Latin Adventures, did a wonderful job of explaining the history and architecture. He was able to answer all of my questions.
Okay, but not really worth the amount they are asking.
Lyndsey_S, Jan 2021
Christian was a great guide. Unfortunately, I felt I was a bit shorted and taken advantage of by the trip. I signed up and paid and then because I was the only person on the tour I was told I had to pay $55 more for a private tour. Additionally, I wasn't taken to a few places on the itinerary and when I asked about it they said that would take up more time and cost me more money.
Great First Day in Quito
Deb_N, Mar 2020
Diego was our guide. He arrived at our door early. He was very knowledgeable and laid back. The restaurant he took us to for lunch ( not included) was delicious. He went above and beyond what was listed on the tour description. We wanted to buy good chocolate so he took us to a quaint shop where we had a private chocolate tasting. It was a first great day in Quito.
Great tour, tour guide, and day!

Daniel was a great tour guide. For our first day, he really helped us get to know the city. The morning started off cloudy and wet. With Daniel’s advice to go to Mirada Del Mundo, Teleferico, and then to the Old City, our day turned out perfect. We had a sunshiny great time at the interactive Mirada del Mundo. Managed to beat the big gray rain clouds to Teleferico. There were some clouds, but they were kind enough to leave open windows to view Quito below. After Teleferico, Daniel took us to have a late lunch at Cafe del Fraile. A wonderful restaurant with a fantastic ambiance and good food in the Old City. With bellies full, Daniel then took us on a historic and informative tour which included stops at Independence Plaza and the Church of la Compañía de Jesús. We thoroughly enjoyed the full day tour with Daniel. All the included sites were terrific and Daniel added that extra touch to make the tour that much more special. Thank you, Daniel and Quito!

Day in Quito

Great day tour of the city. Oscar, our guide, was really fun to be with. Informed about the city and shared a lot of stories with us. He was always aware of our whereabouts and looking out for us. Highly recommended.
