Excellent guide and driver
Jan 2020
I was expecting a bus load of other tourists, but my tour turned out to be a private one in a comfortable van. The guide was both interesting and informative, and he showed up at my hotel exactly on time. I highly recommend this three-hour tour.

Very Good Introduction to Guayaquil
Dec 2019
I was the only person to take the afternoon tour, so the feeling was more intimate than it might have been with a larger group; it was just like strolling and driving around with a friend. Angel did a great job of showing off some of the highlights of the city, and also of explaining how much the city has improved in recent years, with many new parks, playgrounds, museums and cultural activities. Touring the city with him gave me a sense of how the city feels to its residents, not only to the tourists who visit for a day or two.

Historical figures explained and more

Really interesting tour, with great background knowledge. Further ideas given for you to try on your own eg walk up the 444 steps to Santa Ana and enjoy magnificent views over Guayaquil. Good knowledge of flowers and birds you might see eg hummingbirds. Well worth it and gentle exercise too.

Great history of the city
Mar 2019 • Couples
I think these all depend on your guide. We had Matthew and he was great. Many places were closed because of the holiday. We did get to see a lot more of the city. Due to closures, we cut our time short by an hour.
It is amazing how much we learned in this short time.
I would suggest if you are going there, do this tour first and then you will know areas you want to go back to visit more in depth.

Guyaquil City Tour - VERY RECOMMENDABLE - also for CRUISE SHIP PASSENGERS
Feb 2018 • Couples
Having "Guayaquil / Ecuador" as a port of call on our cruise, we neither wanted to buy some over priced shore excursions on board our cruise ship, nor did we want to just walk around the Town. So, in advance, we booked the 3 hour "Guayaquil City Tour". The booking procedure and payment was very easy.
As meeting point we agreed on the Continental Hotel right next to the Seminario Park. This, by the way, is the place where the cruise ship shuttle will drop you off.
Our guide ANGEL was already waiting for us. The first part of the tour was a walking tour: Seminario Park, also known as Bolivar Park, the Malecon,  Moorish Tower, City Hall, Rotonda Monument, various historic buildings and churches. The second part of the tour was a sightseeing tour by car (modern, clean, safe): Malecon, Las Penas, various neighbourhoods including the very sophisticated gated communities where the wealthy people live.
Our very friendly and knowledgeable, perfect English speaking Guide ANGEL gave us a deep insight into this town, its history and into the daily life of the people here.
So, if you are on a cruise and want to spend the day in Guayaquil, TAKE THIS TOUR !
