What people are saying about Middle of the World

El tour estaba bien organizado y empezó punctual at the pick-up point. El guia Daniel Ayala se demonstró desde el principle muy amable y empatico with todo el grupo; tenia mucho conocimiento y nos explicó muchisimas cosas sobre el centro historico. Not only dandonos informaciones de la historia de la ciudad, until también counting leyendas divertidas. Nos hizo probar también unas especialidades locales y siempre estaba attentive to the exigencias de cada a person. Recommend this tour por supuesto: ojalá van a tener Daniel as a guide!

I had a mishap with getting an Uber and was not able to meet the group that morning. They really bent over backwards to make special arrangements to meet me when I was finally able to get there hours later. My host, Daniel, was very friendly and informative. He told us a lot of local legends that I would never had heard on my own. I have seen several bad reviews but I’m a solo female traveler and a first time international traveler and I am so glad I did this tour!! I have nothing but good things to say.

Excellent tour. Very well organized. The time is exact to be able to appreciate the wonders of the historic center of Quito and spend quality time in the middle of the world. The guide was extremely friendly and very knowledgeable about his area. At all times he made me feel comfortable and shared his experiences as a resident of the city of Quito, culinary advice and places to visit. A one hundred percent recommended experience.

It was absolutely worth it! The guide was super friendly and did a great job, he always tried to fulfill every single wish of the customers :) I would definitely recommend it, especially when you consider the low price!

it was excellent! got to see a lot, cant beat it for the price
