This was such a fun and up-close way to get to see many of the different neighborhoods in Quito, including some more traditional tourist spots as well as some spots that only locals would know. Ernesto and Nico were my guides and they were so friendly and provided a lot of background information and history. Not to mention, the food was amazing! I would recommend starting this tour on an empty stomach, as you will definitely get more than enough food. I would also suggest bringing a backpack to carry raincoat/water bottle, and wear shoes that you don’t mind getting wet. On our few hours of walking we experienced both bright sunshine and pouring rain. Ernesto did call us a car at one point so we wouldn’t have to walk in the downpour. I will definitely recommend this to my friends who are visiting Quito!
Awesome tour and Diana was a great guide. Beautiful views of the lake and we even enjoyed a quick boat ride around the lake. A great experience for my first time visiting Quito. The hike was challenging for me bc I’m a beginner but it was definitely worth it. You can rent donkeys to take you back up to the top.
Very inexpensive and easy way to learn about Quito. Our tour guide was friendly and informative. It was easy to book through the site and the built in GPS system in the app was extremely helpful to find the meeting point.
Longer day than expected (12 hours vs. 10 in the description), but worth it! All the stops were great. Bring an extra duffle bag to fill with all the beautiful textiles from the market, you'll want to buy everything.
The tour at night had a very different perspective than that during the day. Many sites and buildings are lite up enhancing their beauty. A lot of interesting information was provided.
