Diego was a great guide. He provided a great deal of information about the sites visited as well as the city itself. The pace was ideal as one of us was having difficulty breathing. The chocolate factory was a great ending.
Great Overview of Quito

Our guide, Fabian, met us at the scheduled time and location, had a good driver, Dante, with him, and escorted us around the city by car and walking. Fabian is friendly, communicates well, and had an in-depth knowledge of the architecture and religious art works which we viewed.
