Nice introduction to Quito by a local.

My wife and I spent a nice half day being shown around the old and new city by Nico. He took us to local markets and small restaurants where we sampled the local foods. We also saw some of the local parks and historical sites. It was a good introduction to the city. Contact Nico if you come here!

The This is Quito tour was an excellent experience I would highly recommend to anyone visiting Quito. Alberto was an outstanding guide who highlighted the perfect blend of architecture, history, and culture of Quito. It was a walking tour, which was a fantastic way to get a feel for the city.

A must do for sure!

Had a wonderful experience wandering through the streets of Quito with Alberto. Interesting stories, great discussions. An excellent blend of key sites, holes in the wall, local food, markets, and unique perspectives on this beautiful city. A great experience overall, and was wonderful thing to do at the beginning of my stay as Alberto made a bunch of suggestions for other things to do and see that fit with personal interests. Absolutely wonderful!
Wonderful introduction to Quito

This was a fabulous tour on foot with Alberto. Learned so much about the architecture and social-political history, and some cultural insights. Saw Quito from roof tops, inside markets and at the tables of places with people's food. Great stops at plaza, church, gallery, fair trade shop, market, food stalls, new and old Quito. Alberto is an experienced and knowledgeable guide with a good sense of humour, excellent English, and is able to keep a commentary going while making it seem like a friend is showing you around. Highly recommend this as a way to see Quito with people who love and know their city.

Nos encanto! Fue una gran manera de conocer el lado más autóctono de Quito y aprovechar el día. Súper recomendable para gente curiosa e interesada en un turismo diferente.
