    All the stops were amazing! If you are looking for a sign you should do this - here it is. The crater was awesome, the equator museum was one of a kind and the art work in the old churches was awe inspiring!

    Our tour with Angel was excellent. He took us to the places, gave us great information and made the day fun. Even helped us with some presents, stopping at a great indoor bazaar. Highly recommend.

    The tour was amazing and what really put it over the top was our guide Angel. He was SO knowledgeable, kind and truly went over the top. We peppered him with questions from pick up to drop off he was so thoughtful in answering as always happy to provide more details. The tour would not have been the same without him! THANK YOU!

    Our guide, Angel, was excellent. He was incredibly knowledgeable and conscientious about our needs. Angel shared information about the history, culture. and architecture of course he city. We had a wonderful lunch with local cuisine. My husband and I strongly recommend this tour.

    Our guide was really awesome, very knowledgeable, always funny and helpful. We really enjoyed our time in Quito with him. Thanks!

    Angel, our guide, was great. We enjoyed our day at our pace. We chose to go with a woman owned tour operator and were happy to support the local economy. Very well executed, on time and very knowledgeable guide.

    Had 1 day in Quito en route to the Galapagos and doing a private day tour with Guillermo of Rebecca Adventures Tours was the perfect way to squeeze lots of Quito sites into a day without us having to deal with any logistics. We were at the Wyndham airport hotel which involved an extra fee for pick up ($40) and shuffled the order of the day from the web description. Guillermo was waiting for us on time with a very nice vehicle for the day. He was very informative and lovely to spend the day with. If you only have 1 day to “do Quito” I highly recommend this approach. We never felt rushed (or bored) and felt we saw lots. He even swapped the 3rd church visit in old town for a quick stop at a chocolate place based on our interest and took the time to walk us by the old town hotel we would be staying after returning from Galapagos. Coordinating with Rebecca Adventures in advance via email and paying was relatively straight forward.

    This tour gave us a great overview of both Quito and the surrounding areas. It was well organized and our guide was really good.

    Angel was an amazing tour guide. We learned so much from him and he was flexible if we wanted to do something not on the plan or skip something that was. We loved every bit of it and the chocolate tasting is quite good as well as a view into a small business in the old city. Angel knew the history of all the places and was clearly proud of his city. He was also a very good driver and his car is lenty large enough for 6 people and possibly 8. We were only 4 and everyone could stretch out. Ask for Angel for your tour!

    Andres was great. Super helpful, very patient, informative and all around great guy. He would stop the car or take us to specific places to get the best pictures. We enjoyed him so much we asked for him the following day.
