We had a super day out with guide Ibeth and driver Jorge. Ibeth led us through Quito old town on May Day with grace and charm while police were mustering all around against possible demonstrations later in the day—just an amazing experience! She quickly recognized the pace we needed to set, our needs and met any requests immediately, while Jorge negotiated traffic, drop offs and pick ups with great skill. Because of the holiday we made some changes to our day, and enjoyed an absolutely delicious lunch overlooking the middle of the world monument and followed up at the nearby museum and national park. The day was enjoyable from beginning to end —and Ibeth was both knowledgeable and personable. Excellent value for money!

Our guide Gustavo Tupiza was great and very knowledgeable. We were very pleased to have arranged with him for a full day tour in Quito and La Mitad del Mundo. He told us a lot about history, as well as about what is happening in the city now and about Ecuador in general. We learned a lot and had a lot of fun! I would definitely recommend this Quito city - La Mitad del Mundo tour with Gustavo. He is the best! Thanks for a wonderful day, Gustavo !!!
