Private tour guide Santiago

Santiago M.

Quito, pichincha, Ecuador

Hello everyone and welcome to Quito! My name is Santiago and I have been working as a professional tour guide and driver for almost 30 years.

I have a degree in Tourism, and over the course of my career, I held different positions, from more operational roles to guiding and conducting tours, in both Colombia and Ecuador. I am also trained to provide outdoor tours, including hiking, trekking, mountain bike, ride horses.

With me, you'll discover the different corners and landscapes of this diverse country!
From the Andes to the Coast, passing through the Jungle and the famous Galapagos Island, Ecuador has a lot to offer: mountains, volcanoes, beaches, forest, rivers, animals, but also Cacao routes, Indian Markets, Native cultures, History, and Culture!

Experience Ecuador with a local guide, get to know its People and Traditions and enjoy its breathtaking and varied Landscapes. I promise you'll have an unforgettable experience!

All the tours can be tailored to your needs. If you are traveling in a group, send me a message and I will customize the tour for you!

I look forward to meeting you in Quito!

A Recent Review of this guide

Santiago was great! We had about 5 hours at night on our layover in Quito. Very knowledgeable and great guy. He showed us some awesome views of the city and took us on a nice little walk around the beautiful Old Town. Highly recommended if you have a few hours in Quito!
