    Andrea was a great guide for this trip mostly around the Old Town of Quito. We saw plenty of churches (not surprising for a tour that runs the length of a street called "Street of the Seven Crosses"), a nice mix of walking and riding in a trolley, several old town squares, and a viewpoint over the city. Good pace to see as much as possible in a half day; excellent bargain at $15. A great choice for a first day in Quito, both to get to know the city as well as acclimate to the altitude.

    Despite the late start due to incontrolable factors such as the vehicle breaking down and needing to be replaced and the horrendous morning rush hour traffic, our guide Leo recovered and provided an excellent tour in both Spanish and English.

    It was our first time in Quito and we want a morning tour that would show us the most important sites, give us a sense of the historic center and give us basic information on the city and its history.

    This tour filled the bill!

    Great introduction to the city if you are fresh off the plane. The beautiful gold leaf Jesuit church and the trip up to ththe panecillo viewpoint were the highlights. Juan was a knowledgable and enthusiastic guide.

    Our half day Quito city tour exceeded our expectations. John, our guide was so passionate about Quito, its history and the Ecuadorian people it was infectious. This tour came at the end of a month long visit to Ecuador and Peru and we told John we weren't interested in going inside anymore churches, etc. - just give us the highlights! He smiled and said, Yes, I hear you but let me just take you to this one. From then on we were hooked. We went everywhere and enjoyed and appreciated every building and monument he showed us. Best tour guide ever, a real highlight of our entire trip. I highly recommend it!

    The tour was very informative with a very engaging guide. I found it a great value for the price. When I booked the tour I was under the impression that we could go on the tour at different times during that day but on Saturday the tour only leaves at 8:30 am which was an inconvenience and was not made clear on Viator or on the confirmation email. Another annoyance was that the tour did not include entrance fees to different churches, entry prices are not expensive but I wish we had been told before hand.

    Excellent tour. Very good value for money. The guide , Juan was very knowledgeable, pleasant and helpful.
    I recommend it as the first thing you should do in Quito, to get acquainted with the city.
