Fantastic Private tour

Although I purchased a private tour for myself (x1) through the Latin Adventures website, this is the same tour (TripAdvisor/Viator unfortunately required 2 min). Granted, a shared tour would have been alright, but the private tour you get real 1:1 interaction. Glad I did the private tour.

Tour began at 8:30a and lasted 6-7 hours (lots of traffic in town due to protest).

My guide was Ana. She was very nice, knowledgeable, and accommodated and answered everything I asked. This is the best perk of a private tour. I think knowing your guide, their background and personal life, makes the tour more a friend. Just stating historical facts about sights can sometimes get boring, so this true interaction made it fun. The driver was great too... I am so glad he had a lot of patience in traffic. I highly recommend this tour and with Ana.

Thanks Latin Adventures for a great day and guide. Very memorable.

I think for private tour customers paying the premium price, perhaps lunch should be included. This would be a good gesture. :)
Gabriel provided a full day city tour of Quito with lunch followed by a cable cable ride to the base of the volcano

Gabriel's English was very good for our tour. He is very knowledgeable about the history, architecture, geography and art of this beautiful city. He paced the walking and hiking to my needs and was gracious and interesting in responding to my many questions. Our transportation was prompt and the drivers courteous. The tour was everything I had hoped for. Remembering personal items for our day such as sunglasses, light rain gear, solid walking/hiking shoes and sunscreen made the day pleasant. Lunch was tasty and regular washroom breaks were made available.
Memorable trip to Quito

We (family of four) took a private tour of historical city center, teleferico ride to Pichincha and Intinan museum. Dante was very prompt and professional right from the initial email/query to help us schedule our tour. Francisco, our guide was fabulous! He spoke good English, gave us excellent insights and talked to us about history of Ecuador. Francisco picked us up from our hotel, adjusted the schedule based on local weather, took us to lunch at a local place and dropped us off at our hotel. Very professional and courteous!
Tour was excellent and informative...
