    Alex and Dante were fantastic tour guides!! We learned the history of the city in a fun way! Alex was so knowledgeable and the tour was personalized making it an amazing experience.

    Diego was a great guide. He provided a great deal of information about the sites visited as well as the city itself. The pace was ideal as one of us was having difficulty breathing. The chocolate factory was a great ending.

    Our guide, Fabian, met us at the scheduled time and location, had a good driver, Dante, with him, and escorted us around the city by car and walking. Fabian is friendly, communicates well, and had an in-depth knowledge of the architecture and religious art works which we viewed.

    Dante and Alex let our family of 12 on a wonderful “4 hour” tour of Quito city! We could not have asked for more. They were both knowledgeable of the sites and history of Quito and had much patience answering questions from all of us. The churches were beautiful, the Chocolate tasting was wonderful, and the lunch they recommended was perfect. We all agree that this tour receives 5 stars. Thank you, Dante and Alex.

    We had a blast! Rodrigo was on time, and early. Our itinerary changed in mid tour and he made it even better than what we anticipated. Super satisfied

    My first time in Ecuador and booked two tours with Latin Adventures—city tour and that went so well I also booked the Quilotoa crater trip. Both tour guides, Alex and Fabian, were great to travel with—very informative, responsive to my interests and enjoyable to travel with. The owner Dante was very accommodating with shifting travel plans. It was a great experience and I’d highly recommend this company.

    Great day with Carlos. Four of us on a private tour. Hit all the highlights and had a great meal. Carlos was a great guide fluent in English and Spanish. Highly recommended.

    Our guide, Oscar, was very knowledgable about old town Quito, the city and country’s history, the surrounding volcanoes and was helpful recommending someplace to eat lunch afterward (this tour did not include food stops). He also speaks Russian, for anyone needing that language. He drove us from our pickup place to the Virgin statue, then to Old Town, then we walked from that point on. Oscar asked if we like to walk so I assume that means he would’ve driven us within Old Town if that was our preference. I prefer walking. Wear sturdy walking shoes and be prepared for large hills. Also, climbing the towers of the newest basilica is a cool experience but involves two somewhat forbidding set of narrow steep metal staircases, not for anyone fearful of heights (this climb totally optional). The only reason I’m not giving 5 stars is because of confusion over pickup time — the TripAdvisor page first said tour starts 9 am, my confirmation said meet at 8:30, we arrived at pickup point at 8:30 but Oscar arrived at 9. During the half hour wait I had no way to connect w TripAdvisor in real time to confirm that we were still on. Also, some churches we visited required a small entrance fee (in addition to the tour cost), which I paid, and at another Oscar paid it. Please mention in this tour listing which additional fees are needed. They were very inexpensive but it was confusing. Otherwise, thanks for an interesting and helpful tour!
