At first I thought this seemed a bit expensive but I can promise, you definitely get your money’s worth! The guides took me literally everywhere in the city, I saw so many different things, and they were incredibly knowledgeable. They made me feel very safe on the bike despite it being a busy city. If you want to get to know quito better, I highly recommend this tour. My only regret is I wish I’d done it on one of my first days so I would’ve been able to take advantage of everything I learned!!
