We were privileged to have Maria Esther give us a very interesting and informative city tour of Quito. She impressed us with her knowledge of Quito and Ecuador and her obvious enjoyment in sharing her enthusiasm about her home. Maria was quite accommodating in responding to our several requests to change specific sites on the tour as well as the timing of events during the day. We were amazed at how she arranged the walking parts of the tour so that we only rarely had to confront any steep slopes.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I reallly want to say thank You for your visit. I was so happy sharing with you. Very nice to meet you.

Maria was prompt, professional, thoroughly knowledgable, thoroughly pleasant and adapted the intinery as I figured out what might be most interesting to me. Her English made up for my profound deficiencies in Spanish. Her pride in the city and its history was infectious. I recommend her without reservation.

Maria is truly a wonderful tour guide. She is very knowledgeable on all aspects of history, art and culture of Ecuador. She was perfectly on time at pickup in our hotel lobby and used a good driver with a clean car to show us around. She is open to requests to tailor the visit to what interests the clients most. We had a wonderful stop in a boutique chocolate factory which made my day. This is truly a luxury service. I would definitely recommend her services for everything she can offer.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Angelo and Juan thank you very much for your comment , We really had a good time right?, thanks for coming and do not forget to enjoy the chocolate too jijiji. Do not forget you are always very welcome

Maria was wonderful. She worked to connect with the boys 11,12, and 13 years old so that the history came alive. She went the extra mile for us. She is 100% reliable and able to listen well in order to understand the interests of her group. Martha
