Used Guanguiltahua Expeditions to go to Hacienda San Agustin de Callo and Quilotoa Lagoon. Dennis was a great guide. He knew the history of the region and the best places to grab lunch. The Hacienda was gorgeous and very historic with the lunch being very delicious. We then traveled to Quilotoa Lagoon, it took a couple hours to get there... More

After being stuck outside of Quito we had a day to relax and sight see before our Galapagos trip. We contacted Dennis that morning and he had arranged a last minute driver and day trip around Quito, Otavalo and a few other small towns. Not expecting a lot since it was last minute, my wife and I were pleasantly surprised... More

Sorry, my first rating was an error! Dennis and his crew are the best! The trip to the Otalavo Market was wonderful and relaxing. My guide spoke excellent English and was full of information on practically every subject imaginable. The market itself isn't huge, but it's packed with wonderful things to see and buy. Lunch in another little town afforded... More

I couldn't believe it, but there I was, looking up at Riva's Retreat just below the ice fields on Cotopaxi, a live and active volcano in the Andes, and all I had to do was take 1000 steps to reach it. My legs felt as if I had lead pipes inside them, but I was breathing just fine. If only... More

My wife and I recently completed a nine-day private tour with Dennis Yepez of Guanguiltagua Expeditions, starting in Quito and proceeding south down the Avenue of the Volcanos to Cuenca with various stops along the way and ending in Guayaquil. We recommend Dennis to other travelers who are looking for a friendly, knowledgeable and reliable guide to explore the beautiful... More

Fantastic program!! Dennis and his staff provided outstanding coordination, support, and guide service during five days of climbing volcanos in Ecuador. Dennis set us up with a great program to conduct high altitude climbs while mitigating any AMS with expert guides in addition to wonderful accommodations in mountain resorts to rest and relax while off the hills. This is a... More

Had multiple contacts with Dennis trying to organise a private tour to visit Ecuador and the Galápagos. We exchanged more than 20 E.Mails before we finally decided to choose other options because of our limited budget. The presentation that I received from him was very professionnal and he gave me a lot of informations, answering immediately all my questions or... More

We had a great time with Dennis in Ecuador. The rooms and the meals and the rooms were fantastic. He took us off the beaten path so we saw thing people in a big old bus or a large group would not see. He has an amazing knowledge of the local history and the local flair.If you want a sit... More

My wife and I booked a tour with Dennis. He worked out an itinerary that worked for our dates and areas we wanted to see including his suggestions. He booked our flight to Cuenca from Quito as Cuenca was the start of our tour, ending in Esmeraldas on the coast. If it hadn't been for other very positive "trip advisor"... More
