Date: Feb 8/20

Great tour! My wife and I really enjoyed the markets and especially Quilotoa. Juan Pablo was an expert guide, soooo much better than a bus tour or going it alone. He was very knowledgable and made sure we were comfortable and enjoying the experience as much as possible. Highly recommended!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much. I am so happy that you liked the tour. I would like to do a new tour whenever you want. Regards

Quilotoa was an amazing experience. Juan Pablo gave us an amazing tour of the local village, the lake, and stopped for us to try traditional Ecuadorean cuisine. The natural beauty of this place was only augmented by Juan Pablos knowledge.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi. Nice tour. It was a pleasure doing the tour with you. Regards.

I cannot express what a wonderful two days Juan Pablo created for us. His knowledge and experience of Cotopaxi ensured we saw all parts of the park at the best possible times. He was very accommodating to our interests and his passion for the mountain reflected in the experience. I would highly recommended Juan Pablo for any tour!

Date: Jan 23/20

Juan spoke very good English. We wanted to see Quilotoa but unsure about hiking, being older. Juan did an excellent job of pointing out options. We did not go to the bottom but stopped at several excellent view points and were very happy with what we hiked. We never felt rushed on the trail or at rest stops along the way. Our lunch stop was very good. On the drive Juan pointed out and stopped for photos of other volcanoes. Middle of the World equator was very interesting also. We would recommend this tour

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you. Very much. It was a nice tour. Regards.

Tour: #506348, Otavalo Market and Cotacachi leather town., Quito, Ecuador    view tour
Date: Jan 5/20

The trip was excellent. We stopped for delicious coffee or hot chocolate, and then to view the volcano and beautiful lake at a lovely lakeside resort. In Otavalo, he oriented us to the outdoor market and patiently helped me instruct a booth owner how to modify earrings I wanted. After a delicious lunch in Cotacachi, he took us to his favorite leather shops. In between he had interesting insights into the cultures and institutions of Ecuador. By the end of the tour, we were parting with a friend.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your words, I am very happy that you liked the tour, I wish you the best.

We had the most amazing experience with Juan Pablo. Since we were traveling with one person with limited mobility, he was able to adjust the tour and spread the activities out over two days instead of one. We were impressed by his knowledge of each site that we visited and his willingness to field our endless questions with humor and patience all while navigating Quito's . It was exciting to see Quito through Juan Pablo's eyes.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi. Jason. Thank you so much, yo are so kind, best wishes for you and your family.

Date: Jul 10/19

The trip to Mindo with Juan Pablo was awesome! He found an amazing place to stop to see the hummingbirds! We then stopped at the butterfly garden which was so cool! Juan Pablo suggested tubing down the Mindo River which was very fun! Some small rapids but very doable and safe. We got to do ziplines over the trees which was awesome! Juan Pablo brought us to lunch at the same place that the chocolate factory is so we finished our day with a chocolate tour! Very fun, activity packed day!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you. IT was a very nice three days tour. Best wishes.

Date: Jul 9/19

Our tour to Cotopaxi with Juan Pablo was amazing! The hike was the perfect length and didn't take too long. It was snowing when we started so it was a good idea to have warm clothes, hats, and mittens. Juan Pablo was very encouraging and good at keeping a pace that let us adjust to the altitude and stopping whenever we needed to! When we got to the refuge, it cleared up and we got to see the top of the volcano which was absolutely incredible! It was a great day! Highly recommended!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you. It was a good tour with a nice people. Best wishes.

Our day to Quilotoa was awesome! We got to do everything that we were hoping to! We kayaked inside the crater and took the ponies back up. Juan Pablo was extremely informative the entire time and told us many local legends and facts about the volcano. He also helped introduce us to some of the local culture through art and food. It was an amazing day and we had so much fun!

We had one day in Quito and I had to find a balance of activities that would please me and my teenage son. Juan planned a wonderful day for us that included a cable car ride, a short hike to a waterfall, hummingbirds and butterflies. We had a yummy lunch and enjoyed tasting amazing chocolate. He even agreed to stop at Museo del Mitad Del Mundo on the way home. I booked the entire excursion online a few days before. Juan confirmed it online. He was punctual, and the day was perfect.

Juan, we were the Group of Four from Pittsburgh, PA and we cannot tell you how refreshing it was to spend the day with you. We were most impressed with how flexible you were to arrange our tour around the sites we were most interested in, how well versed you were with interesting facts about what we visited, and the great pride you showed for your City. You were most hospitable and made us feel most comfortable. Thank you!!

Juan gave my friend and I a fantastic tour. He spent 11 hours with us, was extremely polite, considerate, accommodating, personable, and friendly. We went to Mindo Cloud Forest and were able to hit all the attractions plus the Middle of the World. He picked out the best place for lunch and encouraged us to try new things but didn't push. He also did an excellent job with the driving and always made himself available to take photos.

Five Stars is not a high enough recommendation for Juan during our private tour to the Otavalo Market and Cotachi. His attention to our every need without our asking and his positive response when we requested additional services is beyond what we have experienced on many other guided tours. His help at the markets was invaluable and his knowledge of Equador and the customs of the people is unmatched. Hire him quickly because he is in great demand by other travelers and travel companies.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you. I am happy that you enjoyed the tour.

Juan Pablo was excellent. It was important for me to find a tour guide safe for a single, female traveler. Juan Pablo was more than professional and was extremely knowledgeable about the area. He is just getting started with TBL. I highly recommend him. He went the extra mile to personalize my tour. Great job, Juan Pablo! Your tour was fantastic and the biscochos were super! If you're still reading, take a chance on a fantastic guide. You won't be disappointed.

JUAN was INCREDIBLE! We have had many guides in many countries and he was by far the best. He was extremely flexible, pleasant, and knowledgeable. Anything we wanted to do or see he went over the top to make it happen. His English is fluent! He toured us around the whole city and even went over time to make sure we saw everything. Definitely book with Juan! He just started with tours with locals but has vast experience with other companies making him a hidden gem!

Juan Pablo is a fantastic guide! We really enjoyed our day with him (12 to 13 hours!). He took us to all the places we wanted to see on our custom itinerary and provided information about the local history, customs, food, and people. He made a special stop at a local cafe where they were making Bizcochos - very interesting! And we also got to try the local fruit called chimoya - tasty!! In addition to the above comments, his English is very good and he drives safely. We highly recommend Juan Pablo!
