Luis was a fantastic guide and the tour was a balance of the Old city history, culture and architecture and food markets where we tasted fresh treats and watched the locals going about their everyday life.
Great introduction to Quito.

We had a great time on our private tour of old quito. Our guide was excellent!! We couldn’t be happier with our tour. We got to try so many new foods and learned not only about history of quito but also culture. Of note you will pay for the goods you choose to try but the cost of the street food is minimal. We had such a great time we recommended this tour to friends we met along our way in Ecuador.
