Great way to see Quito highlights and the Equator. Our guide Oscar was fabulous. Knowledgeable. Sensitive to our needs. Not rushed
Although our guide Diego was very nice, the tour operator arrange this tour in unfair way as they put together people from 3 different tour. So the skip some part of our tour (no enough time as we have to see other things that were not supposed to be included in our tour) and we have to spend more money to visit sites that were not included in our tour (alternatively we should just wait outside and lost our time doing nothing). Viator should choose better the tour operator, if I reserve a tour I want to visit all the place that are supposed to be seen and no pay for extra sight that are included in other tour, this is a cheating!!! Avoid this tour operator.
Our tour was excellent! Our tour guide was absolutely wonderful and informative. She even got us in a certain area to see the Old Town from above. Love the equator tour as well.
Excellent tour. Great guide. Highly recommend.
We had this with Latin Adventures. Alfonso, our tour guide, drove me and my wife a private tour to places like the Quito Virgin, and the Cathedrals in downtown Quito. Since this happened on a Sunday, the Feast of Three Kings in Catholic church, we were able to catch a parade that showcased the richness of the Ecuadorian culture. A visit to the real Mitad del Mundo highlighted our trip. It was a perfect day to have this tour. Amazing trip!
This is NOT our first Viator all day tour. However this was our first time in South America. We booked this particular tour because it had everything we wanted, as well as the flexibility of a personal guide and schedule. We we not dissapointed! Our guide Francisco picked us up at our hotel in the heart of the old city early, and we packed the day full including some off tour goodies, like visiting the Olga Fisch shop and museum, and having an excellent lunch while on the way there. He spent all day with us, and dropped us that evening at our next hotel near the airport, as we had a flight out the next morning to the Galapagos. Francisco found us some wonderful vantage points of the old city from some rooftops we NEVER would have found on our own! Really appreciated this service, and the ability to book reliable and high quality tours ahead of time from anywhere in the world is truly wonderful.
This tour was amazing! We got to see many exciting sights and my tour guide personalized part of the tour for us so everyone got to visit the areas of Quito that they wanted to see. It was over and beyond my expectations.
Felt rushed the whole day. Weren't taken into the Middle of the World Monument had to take pictures from outside although we went into the official site next door. Was told we had to pay an extra 50 US because of the location of our hotel and we weren't told until we were already driving back to the hotel at the end of the day. What choice did we have at that point? None. We would have been better off just taking a taxi to the monument and later to central Quito, and going at our own pace throughout the day.
We had a wonderful time on this tour and Daniel was an excellent guide!
Our guide, Fabian, was very well informed and eager to share his love and knowledge of the sights we visited in
a clear and interesting way. We especially enjoyed visiting the Intinan Museum at the Middle of the World and experiencing
the differences from one side of the equator to the next.
Our only 'complaint' is that he Viator booking confirmation did not provide a specific pick-up place/time and we had to phone
their USA 1-800 number to get a local contact in Ecuador.
BUT - all worked out perfectly!!
Amazing tour, great guide, a highlight of our stay in Ecuador!
Amazing private tour. Santiago was our guide and we saw a bit of everything. We also got to go on the cable car to a beautiful lookout. We switched around the tour a bit since we had already seen a good amount of old town Quito. Our guide was fun, attentive, and the sights we saw were amazing. It was nice doing a private tour so we could go where we wanted, eat what we wanted, and see what we wanted. I recommend it.
We were with Raul, who drove his own Honda CRV even as he toured us through Quito and Mitad. Raul spoke very good English and had a good sense of humor.
We did Panecillo Hill, then did the Old Town. In the itinerary, we were supposed to drop by the Basilica but we skipped that. We also didnt do San Juan Mirador which was also in the itinerary. But we did do Independence Plaza and checked out the beautiful churches. We even went to the Metropolitan Cultural Center which wasnt mentioned in the itinerary.
We then drove for a long distance to the center of the world. In the itinerary, I got the impression we were going to do both Middle of the World park as well as the Intinan Museum with its interactive experiments. But Raul gave us only a choice of one or the other. We chose Intinan still not sure if that was the right way to go. Then he was about to head back to Quito to drop us off when I reminded him that we were supposed to also do Pululahua crater. So we did.
Raul was a great guide but I really wish you didnt have to remind tour guides about which itinerary items were being missed.
I really enjoyed this tour with Francisco. We didn't know much about Quito, so we let him lead us where we needed to go. We went to a small museum it was a bit cheesy, where zero latitude was measured with a GPS as found, after the Middle of the World Monument was constructed. We weren't overly keen to just see the monument so Francisco pulled over on the side of the street to let us take some pics from outside, saving us some time. Francisco is a very knowledgeable guide taking us into various churches and explaining the histories to us. He made sure he warned us if we asked to go anywhere that had an entrance fee that was not already covered by the tour. If we had more time in Quito, I would have loved to have had him take us around for another day.
Our tour guide Francisco was fantastic - this was a such a great way to see the sights of the city in a short period of time! Highly recommended!!
Latin adventures is top notch! They office staff (Carolina) made sure we saw exactly what we wanted and gave us recommendations. Our tour guide Francisco was amazing! He was incredibly knowledgeable and informative. Highly recommend this tour company!
Our guide Daniel and driver were wonderful. It was fun because they new the sites so well and are so proud of their city. In seven hours we saw a great deal of the city along with a wonderful lunch at a great local spot. Seeing Quito without the help of a driver and guide is not a good idea.
Good overview of the City great guide Daniel
We had a nice city tour of the city with Daniel. His english is great and we felt we were more in the company of a friend. He is very knowledgeable and took us to all the main places in Quito. Great day discovering Quito!
Highly recommended!! Our tour guide Daniel was very friendly and knowledgeable. Really enjoyed this tour!!
Excellent tour. Gives you a good look around the area and the main attractions.
Good tour guide. We saw a lot in a relatively short period of time.
I can't say enough good things about this tour -- it was everything my fiancé and I hoped and more. It was his first time in South America and we had already spent a few days on the coast of Ecuador. But Quito was our favorite part by far. I'm so glad we went the private tour route, it was worth every penny. Not only did we get personalized attention, we felt like we were being shown Quito and its surroundings by a trusted friend, and that's all thanks to our wonderful tour guide, Diego. As a local, he knows the city and how to drive in it! better than anyone, and is knowledgeable about the city's history and culture, and his style is conversational, which allows you to be relaxed and enjoy. He was also flexible to accommodate our schedule, even squeezing in a last-minute trip to the Teleferico cable car where you can admire the city from 13,000 feet which I HIGHLY recommend and then taking us to the airport at the end of the day for an additional 30, which is the usual fare. This was arranged through Dante also wonderful that same morning -- the Teleferico is usually not part of the tour but because they were slightly late that morning to pick us up, they threw in the Teleferico as a courtesy, which I thought was fabulous. The walking part of the tour in the colonial part of town was amazing, too -- we really felt like we were experiencing Quito up close and personal, and especially with Diego right by our side, guiding us. We had about an hour in the old part of town to have a tasty lunch, which was great, before continuing on to Middle of the World. Of course like any big city in the world, you should watch your purse from pick-pocketers, hold them close and not flaunt your best jewelry around while at these touristy spots, but that's just common sense. The convenience of being able to keep our bags in Diego's car and knowing they were safe, was great. It was a packed day but one we will never forget. This is the way tourism should be! Diego THANK YOU!!!
We had a wonderful day tour of Quito and a visit to the equator. Our guide was very knowledgeable and helpful. As a private tour, we were able to make an alteration to the original tour, which we very much appreciated.
the tour conductor was professional with high level of knowledge. the driver excellent professional and follow safety rules.....pleasant experience and the right price
