Quito walking tour with Paúl
a_quincey, 11-01-2023
I had a free walking tour with Paúl and I ended up being the only person on the tour! Paúl was great and knew so much about Quito, as well as making my 'private tour' extra special. I would highly reccomend!
Fun and super interesting!

Fernando was an amazing guide, we learnt a lot, during three hours of good vibes and fun! I would recommend it 100%!
Malena was awesome! Great tour!

We had a wonderful tour with Malena as she was very communicative, personable and knowledgeable. We had met at the wrong meet up location and she waited 20 minutes for us to find her and begin the tour. She was able to assist in translating everything into English and showed us key sites that helped tell the story of Quito! She recommended a very great local spot in which we invited her afterwords to join us. I would 10/10 recommend this tour and we left the tour extremely satisfied with our experience.
Excellent walking tour!

excellent walking tour!
It was the right length of time to see the main attractions in the centro historico and learn quite a bit about the history and the food culture of the area.
Paul Bravo, our guide was very knowledgeable and made us laugh through out the tour.
Recommend this tour very much
Fantastic combo old city and tastings tour!

Fernando did an amazing job from start to finish! He kept in touch with us with WhatsApp to let us know exactly where to meet before the tour so there was no confusion. He was upbeat, energetic, and was able to condense pretty complicated bits of history into short, understandable explanations to hold the interest of my three teens for the entire duration of the tour. The basilica and old town tour were filled with great viewpoints and photo-ops. The tastings of local ice creams, empanadas, juices, and chocolates were amazing. We were absolutely glad we went on this tour, and would definitely recommend this to everyone!
