I really lucked out on this tour. It turned out I was the only person on it and therefore had the full attention of the guide. The guide was extremely knowledgeable and passionate not only about both the architecture and history of the buildings we visited but also of the significance of the religious icons. The churches were amazing and having such an informed guide made the tour so much more meaningful. Even with a larger group, I strongly suggest people consider this tour.

This is a great way to see the historic district of Quito, and panorama views of the entire city. Javier was our guide, and he was very knowledgeable and friendly; open to any questions.
