Gabriela S.

Quito, Pichincha, Ecuador

Hello! My name is Gabriela and I am a tour guide and Spanish teacher in Quito.

I am a enthusiastic person who enjoys meeting new people and learning new cultures. I consider myself an avid traveler. Because traveling is my passion I understand what is fun and interesting to a fellow traveler when visiting a new city and I am constantly trying to improve my tours and lessons to customize them to what my traveling friends truly want out of their experience.

I focus on creating tours that are both exciting and active and I provide background history to all the historical sites we visit together. I want you to feel like one of your good friends is showing you the city. As your friend I will help you with anything and everything you need. Whether that is recommendations of places to eat, drink, or dance, places to visit, transportation, directions, or any other concern that arises.

Ecuador is wonderful country with amazing biodiversity and incredible geographical variety. Quito is a city with a proud and long history. It is home to one of the best-preserved historical centers in the Americas. Quito is among the first World Cultural Heritage sites declared by UNESCO. If you visit the city with me I will show you the true "local experiences" other tour guides promise but fail to deliver. There is more to Quito then "Old Town" and I am happy to share it with you.

If you are interested in specific activities or places you want to visit in Quito I can create a tour based on your preferences and needs. I know time is valuable when you are traveling so I am here to help you get what you want, how you want, without wasting any precious time.

Come visit Ecuador, a country with rich culture, friendly people, sparkling beaches, the highest active volcano, Amazon jungle that stretches as far as the eye can see, and the mysterious Galapagos islands, all here for you to explore! What are you waiting for? I look forward to meeting you and having fun together soon!

Your friend,

Gabriela was very prompt to pick us up and did a wonderful job of sharing information about the city of Quito, customs, etc. throughout the day. Her knowledge of the area and her enthusiasm made the day fly by!
