Irina BessBeverly Hills, CALIFORNIA, United States
Loved this tour tremendously!! Since we flew in a day late, Elizabeth had to adjust our 3 days of tours into 2 days. Elizabeth took us to an amazing organic rose farm which we enjoyed very much. Then we went to the Otavalo Market and although we are not big shoppers, Elizabeth gave us a concise history of the area. We had a delicious meal and tasted some local goodies!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Irina Your comments makes me happy because I am sure that you enjoyed your tour although we had to pack everything only in 2 days. Cheers, Elizabeth
Nadine CarpenterUnited Kingdom
A great final day/souvenir buying tour allowing plenty of opportunities to buy an abundance of gifts from markets and artisanal shops. The long journey to Otovalo was very comfortable and we enjoyed having a lot of time to peruse all the stalls at the Otovalo market and Elizabeth's help when bartering!! Elizabeth was keen to share lots of information with us throughout the tour and once again the tour was well planned and seamless with a great stop in Cotocachi to find out more about handmade textiles!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Nadine and Jenna I hope you have had a good flight going back to your country, It was nice and a big pleasure to meet both of you. You have now a friend in Quito, I hope you can come back someday and see you again. Cheers, Elizabeth
Simonette VelardeUnited States
Elizabeth and the driver, Julio, were very patient. Otavalo was more than two hours a way from our apartment in Quito and all along the way, she would point out interesting facts. She was very flexible in rearranging the itinerary to suite our needs. At the market, she accompanied us and helped us bargain. We thoroughly enjoyed our tour thanks to Elizabeth.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Simonette It was our pleasure to share a day with 3 of you, I also enjoyed the time together and I also learn some interesting things. Have a fun in Galapagos. Hugs, Elizabeth

Nadia GuhringSouth Africa
So happy we got to do this tour with Elizabeth! She is an incredible tour guide. We had a lovely time with her.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Nadia Thanks for your comments, I really appreciate it. I am so happy also to have had the opportunity to meet you. I hope you are doing well. Hugs, Elizabeth
David ProodianUnited States
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.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear David Thanks for your comment I really appreciate it, I enjoyed the time with you and your friend, both are excellent people. I hope you can come back any day to visit more beautiful places here. Hugs, Elizabeth
Jackson GainerUnited States
Elizabeth was an incredibly knowledgeable and friendly tour guide. From Quito, Otavalo, Cotacachi and back, she pointed out every point of interest we passed. Despite being listed as "conversational"English, I would argue she is fluent as we never had difficulty discussing any topic. She was irreplaceable while trying to purchase items in the Otavalo markets and helped us select leather products in Cotacachi. She is professional, timely and I would highly recommend her!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Jackson Thanks for your comments I really enjoyed the day with you and Ryan both of you are really amazing people. I hope you enjoyed your time in Ecuador. Come back soon, Hugs, Elizabeth
Heather BaileyUnited States
Elizabeth is the absolute ideal tour guide!!! She is professional, enthusiastic, flexible, knowledgeable, kind, and many other positive things. She truly made the vacation extra-special. I would HIGHLY recommend choosing Elizabeth! We had to change our plans and go to a different destination at the last minute and Elizabeth fully accommodated us. We are 100% satisfied! :)
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Heather Thank you so much for your nice comment, We had to change all our plans but We had a wonderful day, I enjoyed a lot the time with all 4 of you. You are a special group of people. Hugs and kisses Elizabeth
Leslie ThompsonMinneapolis, MN., United States
Elizabeth was wonderful and was very willing to add activities I wanted to see. And her English is very good! I think you'd be in great hands taking a tour with her. She was informative about the places we visited.

Stanley HalpinUnited States
Elizabeth arrived promptly and proceeded to provide us a wonderful day-long excursion from Quito to Otavalo with other towns along the way. She had a van comfortable for the four of us in our group and the long ride was ok. Her driver, Julio, was very good and never caused any concern on the steep twisty roads. All of us were very impressed with Elizabeth's depth of knowledge about regional culture, economics, education, tax policy, politics, and everything else we asked her about. A good day!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Stan Thanks for your comments, I really appreciate it, all of you are awesome. Thanks Elizabeth
Eileen N.Reno, NV, United States
Elizabeth and her driver were amazing, knowledgeable, informative, professional, warm and friendly hospitality, accommodating and flexible. When I inquired about learning more about the various traditional music and instruments of South America, she responded by taking us to a accomplished artists Home, where he crafts the instruments by hand and then provided us with a demonstration of ½ dozen or more instruments and informed us of country that they originated from. Many thanks for a memorable day!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Eileen and Norval Thanks for your comments, we had a great day, I am so happy because you got a memorable day as you said, thanks for sharing your ideas, I am going to use many of them. Hugs, Elizabeth

Nancy FerraroUnited States
Elizabeth was a fantastic guide. She was timely, professional and made the tour very interesting. Elizabeth found (by calling friends and inquiring) and took us to a festival and what seemed to be a protest. They were the highlight of our trip! Elizabeth was flexible and took us to our new location after our tour even though it was not convenient. Thanks for a great tour, Elizabeth!

Joshua Schwartz, PhDUnited States
Elizabeth accompanied us on a day in the market of Otavalo and the town of Cotacachi. We wanted to see the markets at our own pace and she left us on our own, exactly as we desired. She was able to answer all of our questions and provided us with some useful insights.

Elizabeth made our shopping experience at Otavalo very enjoyable - she was very helpful in obtaining good prices for good items. She is very friendly and easy to be with and that makes for an excellent guide! We saw some beautiful parts of Ecuador and learned much about the country. We would highly recommend Elizabeth to anyone who is planning on visiting Quito.
