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.
