It was a cool place to check out with a great guide! Very reasonable, I would definitely recommend this. It says hotel pickup but then the meeting point was about a twenty five minute walk from my hotel. After talking to someone I was able to arrange my pick up a bit closer but false advertising and an inconvenience.

The tour is very enjoyable, they were very punctual and the transport of very good quality. The staff that accompanied us was very friendly, the guide (Julio) was excellent.

The view of La Virgen del Panecillo is the best part of the tour.
