Best tours ever!!
Aug 2021
I took a few different tours with Jona in August of this year. He is an amazing tour guide with a huge knowledge base and a passion for the city and the region! He catered our tour to our personal interests and organized everything in a way that allowed me to see the most possible in my time frame without ever feeling rushed or that I was missing something. He made my time so much more pleasant and efficient while I was visiting Ecuador for the first time! Highly recommend his services for his integrity, knowledge, passion and sense of fun! You won't find better! Will use his services on my next trip for sure!

Great overview of Loja history.
Sep 2021
I did this trip 5 years ago with the same owner/guide. Still fresh and interesting. It is a great way for tourists and newcomers to learn about the history of Loja and get pointers on where else to visit and what shops to explore after the tour.

Walking tour through Loja

We did a walking tour with Jona through Loja. We visited several parks, cathedrals and a concert hall. Jona was very friendly and explained the history of Loja. I would highly recommend this tour.

Coffee tour

Jona was great showing my friend and I around different coffee shops where we got to learn about the coffee. My friend I was with can only speak English and Jonathan’s English is perfect so for those that need an English speaker you have a great tour guide here. We loved jona!

Fantastic tour guide in the beautiful city of Loja
Feb 2020 • Solo
I did a 5-day tour with Jona and I must say they were the best five days during my 2 week trip to Ecuador. I’m so glad to have found Jona before coming to Loja. We went to museums, he showed me different areas in the city, we went hiking, and of course food tasting. Jona made sure that I was able to experience all that Loja has to offer. We went to Saraguro (a must see when visiting Loja), an indigenous community and spent a night there. We also ate at a famous restaurant called Shamuico in Saraguro, which I highly recommend but make sure to make a reservation ahead of time. We went to viewpoints with views that are just incredible. The beauty of Loja is indescribable. It needs to be experienced. Also, if you like food, Loja will have you drooling because they have the best :) Jona knows all the places to visit and all the best restaurants. One last thing, Jona is not just a tour guide, but he’s also a translator or if you’re planning to move to Loja, he’ll help you find a place. He pretty much does everything :) Jona, muchas gracias por todo! I’m looking forward to taking more tours in the near future.

Jonathan is the BEST Tour Guide EVER! He offers a nice variety of tours for groups or just a couple of friends, or even singles. He has a very deep and profound knowledge and love of his city, and he is happy and proud to share that with others. He even has orientation tours for new residents or those thinking of moving to Loja. To get full enjoyment out of your visit to the beautiful city of Loja, you will really get your money's worth when you tour with Jonathan! And he is very reponsive, so book that tour today!

Outstanding Loja Tour
Feb 2020 • Solo
While I have only lived and worked in, or visited, 111 countries, so far, but this tour of Loja was incredibly useful and practical.
After full-time travel over the last 12 years, I am finally planning to settle in one country; Ecuador. I have eliminated several other cities and narrowed my choices down to Loja.
If you are at all like me, wanting to know whether Loja is the place for you, then Jono's tour is the place to start. Especially if, like me, you have eliminated the Gringolandia ghettos like Cuenca and Vilcabamba where expats congregate almost exclusively with other expats, don't learn the language, nor culture and consequently have minimal integration with natives.
Learn from Jono, as I did, about the real world pluses and challenges of choosing Loja to live.

Would take the tour again.

Worthwhile taking this 2 hour walking tour. We heard interesting facts and visited locations that not everybody knows. Jona was very considerate, allowing us to take photos, taking his time to move onto the next place. I'm already looking for the next tour to take.
