Really fun time around Quito

Super fun time. The guide was exceptional. He was great, with a cool sense of humor. He took us to all the spots we wanted to see, plus a couple extras we really enjoyed. We met the owner. And, he was awesome as well. This is a quality tour!!
Very interesting private tour

We had a private tour with Luis! He was very punctual and picked us up with his very clean and comfortable car. It was great talking to him because he knows a lot about Ecuador (historical and geographical) and told us about life in Quito and Ecuador.
We made lovely visits to the equator line, a rose farm, otavalo market, the town of cotacachi and the laguna cuicocha.
Luis let us decide how long we would like to stay at the different stops, so the tour was tailormade for us! We loved it, thank you so much, it was absolutely worth it and we would recommend it without hesitation!
