Excelent program
Nov 2020 • Solo
En medio de Covid fui a hacer una muy bonita salida con Juan. El programa es sumamente interesante y Juan contestó a todas mis preguntas. Recomendó mucho este Tour y Juan es atento y muy responsable con las medidas de seguridad de salud.

Juan was my guide in Quito in Nov 2020. He has a very good historical knowledge and that is what you expect in such programa. I highly recommend Juan for his attention in Heath security

Jan 2020 • Family
Fuimos a visitar el centro históric, telférico, y Mitad del Mundo.

Nuestro guía turístico fue Juan y fue muy amable y conocedor de la historia y las culturas indígenas. Además, habló sobre sus experiencias personales y su vida en Quito.

Me gustó todo, pero mi favorito fue Mitad del Mundo. Fue tan interesante y la demostración de la rotación del Mundo fue fascinante.
