Elizabeth was an outstanding guide in Quito. I had contacted some other guides at other websites and was told that because of my limited amount of time Quito we would not be able to do what we wanted to do. Upon telling her what we wanted, she suggested a timeline that could fit in all of our requests and more. In Otovalo, when we were looking for a specific item, she knew the location in that huge market. You can't go wrong with private local guides. Elizabeth met all our expectations and more.
