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.
The guides did a great job of explaining the History, culture and politics of Ecuador and Quito. It was interesting to know all the fact of some of the great historic building in Quito. I would totally recommend this tour to anyone and please tip the tour guides.
I had a really good guide, Fernando, who despite us being only two in the group showed great dedication and enthusiasm. I had a great time and learnd a lot!
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.
Beto was great. It was an interesting and fun tour. I recommend it!
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 tour was sooooo awesome! We learned so much history from our tour guide. He was very knowledgeable of Ecuador's history! Thanks for having this service available!
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!
The tour was great, Sole did a really good job. It was a little long though and therefore a bit too much for my concentration ;) maybe cut a little bit of the history about all the presidents!
Learned lots of interesting history and met great people! We all ate a delicious lunch together at el mercado central that wasn't an official part of the tour but we all thought the market looked so delicious!
Obi, our guide, was a delight. Even though we had visited most of the sites, we enjoyed hearing about them from his perspective. He was fun, knowledgeable, and informative.
Soli did an excellent job sharing the history of Quito and the people who call Quito home. She made the tour very relatable with the stories from the past and how the past impacts the people today.
Highly recommended! Great introduction into the history of Quito, very nice and relaxed guide - especially when you're travelling solo this is a good way to get in contact with other travellers. 👍👍👍
Fernando was an excellent guide - informative , interesting and paced the tour really well. It could not have been better !
The Guide was very professional and knowledgeable and provided recommendations and things to do around the city. He was also willing to answer all the questions I had for him!! It was a great experience and a good way to take the stress away and get to know Quito more with a local. Its a great service!
Very nice guide: Andrea. She had a lot of interesting information and showed us nice places! It is very good if you have time to walk around by yourself.
Excellent tour guide!
Our guide Etiel did such a fantastic job! He was very informative & fun. We all learned so much on the tour & visited so many sites. Would highly recommend this walking tour.
