It was our first time in Quito and we want a morning tour that would show us the most important sites, give us a sense of the historic center and give us basic information on the city and its history.

This tour filled the bill!

Great way to start off in Quito with a tour of the main historical centre of the city. It's a fair amount of walking, but a great way to adjust to the altitude.

Our half day Quito city tour exceeded our expectations. John, our guide was so passionate about Quito, its history and the Ecuadorian people it was infectious. This tour came at the end of a month long visit to Ecuador and Peru and we told John we weren't interested in going inside anymore churches, etc. - just give us the highlights! He smiled and said, Yes, I hear you but let me just take you to this one. From then on we were hooked. We went everywhere and enjoyed and appreciated every building and monument he showed us. Best tour guide ever, a real highlight of our entire trip. I highly recommend it!

I really lucked out on this tour. It turned out I was the only person on it and therefore had the full attention of the guide. The guide was extremely knowledgeable and passionate not only about both the architecture and history of the buildings we visited but also of the significance of the religious icons. The churches were amazing and having such an informed guide made the tour so much more meaningful. Even with a larger group, I strongly suggest people consider this tour.

Well organised and William, our guide, ways friendly and knowledgeable. He had to work twice as hard, dispensing his knowledge in Spanish and English ... I was the only non-Spanish speaker on the trip. Thank you for helping to make my weekend in Quito such a good one.

Excellent tour. William, the guide, was friendly and knowledgeable. The churches we visited were gorgeous -- especially la Compania. Don't miss that church. The add on visit to la al Mundo was worth the addition; I was glad I did it.

We had just arrived in South America and Quito was our first stop, so after several hours of intercontinental flight we wanted to start with something light, such as a city tour. This tour was ideal and the driver and guide were punctual, courteous and efficient. Since we were not yet used to the high altitudes they took good care of us. Recommended as a starting point to explore the area.

Our guide was informative but, more important, he was thoughtful about the needs of the group. He made certain that everyone was well served. Could not have been better.

The most important sites in Quito are visited in the old city and you get a lot of the history as well. The insides of the churches are just amazing. The view of Quito from the hill with the Virgin of Quito statue is wonderful. We ended up adding on the Middle of the World tour, and we are glad we did. Great explanations of equatorial phenomenon at the museum, and the restaurant the group stopped at had some of the best traditional food we ate on our trip.

The Quito half day tour was great value and our local guide was very knowledgable. We were only in Quito for a short time so wanted to make the most of our time there. We learnt so much and went places we never would have seen on our own. We were collected from our hotel by Annalucia and the Grays tour bus. What was written up as a 3 hour tour turned into 4.5 hours. This was fine with us as there was so much to see and we didn't feel as if we missed anything. A very worthwhile experience.

The tour guide was very informative and was smiling all the time! She had a great energy about her country that she never hesitated in answering all our questions. We highly recommend this tour to anyone who would only have a short time in Quito.

In the evening, we recommend you to have dinner in Lua Restaurant, it blew us away! The reviews about this restaurant lived up to our expectations and more! When you get there, please say hi to Chef Alexander for us!
