Knowledgable and attentive give guide helped us know the old town
Romulo was a great guide, informative and fun. Even tired is that the Changing of the Guard had changed times, which no one else we talked to knew, and recommended a nice restaurant.
Because the tour guide was lovely and made a real effort to inform us about Quito and look after us. Very happy
What a wonderful way to experience Quito highlights. We walked, tasted, rested with our guide to udnerstand the history, politics and unique aspects of this beautiful city. Kudos to our guide and thanks for all the suggestions on places to eat, shopping and other things to do.
The walking tour was one of the best I have ever been on. Our guide was so informative and passionate and knew the answers to all the questions thrown at him. We tried fruit and traditional juices and he was constantly checking that everyone was keeping up. He also knew lots about the rest of the country and gave me advice on the impending boarder crossing and travel. If you arrive in Quito do this on your first morning without fail.
Was a good overview over the city

Was my first free tour and it was fantastic. Ivan was great, his tour was the right amount of information and fun. I highly recomend this tour!
The tour was among the very best I have taken. I have been on many walking tours in different places and this one tops the list. We touched on every subject imaginable. No question went unanswered. All the information was useful and presented in an interesting way with passion. Natalie did an excellent job at educating us and we left loving Quito even more.

Thank you for the very interesting tour. It was a lot of fun for us and our two little kids to learn about the city and the country. If you can, then book the tour on Monday morning, you can expect a little extra.

Guide very knowledgeable and funny. Tour well organized and rich of interesting facts about Quito Old Town.
Unser Guide Sole war super! Sie war sehr freundlich, wusste unheimlich viel und half uns nicht nur bei Fragennzu Quito, sondern auch zu anderen Trips in Ecuador und generell Südamerika. Die Tour war gut, man hat viele neue Eindrücke bekommen und auch Hintergrundinformationen zum Land (Politik, Religion, Ökonomie). Es war zu keiner Zeit langweilig und wir hatten viel Spaß!
We really really enjoyed our tour without a doubt the best walking tour we have taken in our travels, Tour guides english was absolutely excellent, Very knowledgeable and took us to see local businesses too which was a nice touch, We had to leave ten minutes before the end because we had to catch another tour but we got 3.5 hours of excellent factual information from a local guide about ecuador and I would recommend this tour to anyone. Especially when I booked the tour with 7 minutes notice :)
tour was very informative and enlightening. I wish we would have gone to the basilica.
Very big group, but very knowledgeable guide (Andrea).

The guides, Sole and Paolo were knowledgeable, interesting, spoke English well and were charming . Gave assistance on more than just history and sights, by helping orient us to Quito and its charms.
Etiel was so knowledgeable and explained a tremendous amount of information regarding Quito. I am not a huge tour person, but this was fantastic and well worth my time. I would highly recommend this walking tour, as it was fun, informative and very interesting!
Best walking tour we’ve ever taken. Soli was great!
Guide was very informative and pleasant
Ovidio was a great tour guide. We enjoying his local insight and humor. We enjoyed going to the market and having a chance to try the fruit juices and get recommendations on what and where to eat later. Ovidio including background on Ecuador's currency change and what life was like during that time was very insightful. After the tour he invited us to join him for lunch, which was awesome. Overall I would highly recommend this tour and guide.
Fabulous and knowledgeable guide.
Fernando did a wonderful job combining past and current history of Quito/Ecuador. We encountered a rainstorm during the tour and during this time, we have a most enjoyable time drinking coffee and learning all about Ecuador. I recommend this tour to everybody.
Was a fun guide and intern. Was very informative and pleasant way to explore Quito historical district!
