    This was a fabulous tour with a passionate, knowledgeable tour guide. He took us to some unusual hidden spots, for example showing us a great sculpting demonstration and a chocolate-making demonstration.

    Pablo was an excellent guide. He gave us the political, historical and economic background of Ecuador. As we walked he told us so much interesting information as we went through the sites and side streets. It could not have been better! Joyce N.

    The weather was horrible so the guide altered the tour to help keep us dry in a rain and thunderstorm. Wish I saw more and wasn't so wet and cold! but appreciate the guide being flexible and still making it a great day! He was very knowledgeable about the history of Ecuador and a great conversationalist.

    Pablo was amazing! He could/should be a university lecturer. We all were impressed by the volume of information he shared about history of Ecuador, comparative analysis of colonial activity in other countries at the same time periods, how the different Catholic orders and competing religious groups affected the growth of Quito. It was really fascinating and delivered in a very dynamic style that kept the group including our 2 teenagers engaged--and that was really only the first half of the tour. The subsequent ice cream and chocolate stops were delicious and a lot of fun. Friends at home were very happy to receive their scrumptious artisanal chocolates as souvenirs.

    This was a great tour to get all of the history of Ecuador and Quito. The Historic downtown is a must when visiting Quito. Pablo was very knowledgeable, answered all questions, and is obviously passionate about his country.
