Jose quickly responded to all questions I asked before the tour. He met us on time for a customized tour which was EXCELLENT. He went to every place we requested while dealing with all the carnival traffic. He spoke good English and was hospitable and helpful in all aspects. I would HIGHLY recommend this guide.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: So pleased you get time to visit my town and Mindo in one day. Hope you get very well, thanks

Jose was friendly, courteous and knowledgeable. We spent a day with him driving thru Quito and the surrounding area. It was well worth it to have a private guide.

Date: Oct 1/19

Jose is an excellent guide and looked after us very well under the difficult circumstances of Ecuador in a state of emergency with many roads blocked by protestors. Unfortunately we did not complete the tour as planned but Jose made sure we were safe.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks David and Sue, i really hope you get other chance in the future to visit Galápagos and the Andes in different circumstances.

Tour: #504143, Papallacta Hot Spring Private Day Tour from Quito, Quito, Ecuador    view tour
Date: Sep 11/19

Jose provided good xfer to Day Spa in cloud forest, giving us info as we went along (1-1/2 hrs) leaving Quito. Great relaxing outing -- we needed a break! Only negative -- he was 20 min late due to new traffic routings in Quito. But not his fault. And he did call me to make me aware of situation. Good Kia SUV, too. Would recommend Jose!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much for your comments. I really hope you both continue with great days in Galápagos.

Date: Aug 4/19

We really enjoyed our tour with José to Cotopaxi! I definitely struggled a lot on my climb up due to the altitude, but José was there the whole way. We enjoyed a delicious cup of hot chocolate at the top! On the way back, we stopped for lunch near the park and had a good time relaxing, eating, and chatting over food. José is very easy to talk to and very well informed about the area. We would highly recommend booking a tour with him!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much for your comments, i was pleased to share the hiking with you. Saludos

Date: Jun 4/19

Jose is a great tour guide with a nice comfortable vehicle and a good command of English. He took us to some great spots north of Quito and told us about the history of the areas we passed through and visited. Our favorite part of the trip was probably Cuicocha Lake where we took a boat ride around the crater lake. Otavalo Market itself was a bit disappointing, at least on a weekday (but this isn't Jose's fault), but I'd still recommend this tour for visiting Cuicocha, Peguche, and the other areas.
