    Thanks Irene for such a fun and insightful tour! she knows tons about the city and had the best attitude. The stories she told us were very interesting, and the tour overall was great.

    My daughters and I had the most enjoyable evening with *Irene*, our funny and knowledgeable tour guide -- who gave us a wonderful and safe night tour (with awesome pictures) of the Basilica, old town, and the Panecilla. Because it is almost Christmas, the party atmosphere at the Panecilla was a ton of fun! A million thanks to Irene - for sharing this beautiful city at night with us. The time flew by! I highly recommend this tour -- even if you've seen these places and learned the history in the daytime, it's all new and different at night! Go!

    We just got back from a WONDERFUL Quito by Night & Urban Legends tour. The tour takes in the major sites of Old Town Quito (which has a magical atmosphere at night) and then takes you up to Panecillo Hill to get a night view of the city and enjoy a very tasty canelazo and empanadita. Since no one else had booked on our day we basically got a private tour, and they put it together for us at the very last minute, too. But by far, the best thing about this tour was our guide, Irene. I just can't say enough good things about her. She was so engaging, funny, and interesting. Gray Line Ecuador, you need to promote her or pay her ten times what you are paying her. She is a true gem.

    Very nice tour I did with friends. Our guide wasvery great and it was a pleasure to share with her. It was very cool to be able to see Quito by night. They were also very accomdating about the pick up place.

    Tour was provided in a van, not on a open Two level bus as expected. Difficult to take photos. Knowledgeable staff.

    Through Viator we booked three tours. Two were outstanding and this last one, offered by Gray Line Tours, was extremely disappointing. Our guides were cordial but really did very little to communicate to us anything about the city that we were driving through at night. I'm not certain our driver had very much experience maneuvering a large bus through the very narrow streets, some of which were unfortunately closed due to a demonstration that I think the tour company should have been aware of. The high point of the tour, despite the rather perilous ride, was going to the top of Panicillo and seeing the Virgen del Quitó illuminated. It was rather strange to be the only people on an entire tour bus. I believe Gray Line would have been better off either offering us a refund or providing a smaller car with a driver. This was very impractical. The tours that were booked through the other companies to Otavalo and Mindo were so far superior that this was really rather a disappointment.

    No hay buena comunicación entre las páginas y nos hicieron esperar en la Galería donde nos dijeron q era el punto de encuentro. El personal de este local no tuvo la amabilidad de informarnos q el Tour ya había salido y esperaron a q ordenáramos algo de comer porque nos citaron una hora antes. Son incompetentes y sin criterio para tratar a los turistas. Estuvimos dando vueltas dentro del local durante unos 5min antes de q alguien saliera a atendernos. Fácilmente podíamos haber tomado cualquier producto de la tienda y nadie se hubiera dado cuenta. No recomiendo para nada gray line y sus tours ni q venga a la galería en la Reina Victoria.
