Santiago was great. He picked us up early, right from the airport and was very accommodating. We wanted to visit La Mitad del Mundo, that was not really on the scheduled itinerary, but Santiago made it happen.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Always welcome

Santiago was an awesome guide! Very accommodating and very mindful of our very short stop in Quito! His prepared itinerary not only took us to touristy spots but also beyond. And Santiago's historical grasp of places he took us to were spot on. Very highly recommended!

Santiago was superb! My girlfriend traveled alone. She needed an "emergency" booking of less than 24hrs. I thought it was hopeless with such short notice but emailed Santiago and in span of 4 hours, through efforts of his, managed to book a tour for her. Next day she spoke wonders of him!! He accompanied her through much of the tour, taught her much, went out of his way several times to accommodate her and made her feel very safe. Safety was huge for me. 25 STARS FOR HIM!! Thank you very much Santiago!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Leonardo, Lourdes is very nice person. Regards Santiago

Santiago was wonderful! He was extremely flexible, and he arranged the tour within the time constraint to do the things that we wanted to do the most. He was extremely polite, very friendly, and very knowledgeable about the area. I would highly recommend him to other English speaking travelers!

Santiago met us at the Quito airport, took us on an evening city tour & to dinner, then back to the airport. It made our 6 hr layover MUCH nicer & he was super helpful plus informative.

Santiago made our layover in Quito great. We got to see the city, enjoy the vibe, saw some great sites...and had a lot of fun visiting the great hotel for ice cream and coffee, explore some of the shops and a most beautiful church. He was totally flexible and used out time as good as it could have been used!

Santiago was a fascinating and considerate tour guide. He stopped at wonderful spots on the way to Otavalo and took care of me at the market -- helping me to negotiate a fair price because my Spanish sucks!
