Thanks to TripAdvisor reviews, we contacted Dennis Yepez at Guanguiltagua Expeditions and struck gold! Dennis picked us up at the J.W.

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

We were a small group of 5 that spent 5 absolutely amazing days with Dennis Yepez of Guanguiltagua Expeditions. Dennis took us to places off of the beaten track and his knowledge was amazing. Restaurants, attractions, local knowledge were second to none and his new Patriot was a great vehicle to travel in. All in all it made Ecuador worth... More

As part of a group touring Ecuador, we hired Dennis Yepez of Guanguiltagua Expeditions for a five day tour of Quito, going down to Cuenca via the Cotapaxi Volcano area and the Devil's Nose train. We then hired him for 4 more days when the rest of our group went to a lodge in the upper Amazon River region. The... More

We booked a tour of Ecuador with Dennis based on reviews by previous travelers. He accommodated our wishes and took us to places that we probably did not know about. He is very knowledgeable and gave us a very good tour. I think we covered everything that we wished to. Would recommend.

Our complete Ecuadorian adventure was organized by Dennis, the owner of Guanguiltagua. Dennis went out of his way to ensure that we had a trip worth remembering in a country that is memorable. Through restaurant recommendations to back road excursions not on the itinerary he proved knowledgeable and experienced. He was able to gauge what we wanted to do and... More

Our party of 4 had a wonderful day with Dennis. From Quito, we went to Otavalo and Cotatachi, with a few stops along the way. Lunch was at a beautiful resort, with fabulous food. He is personable and very knowledgeable. The fact that his English is perfect was an added bonus! I would not hesitate to recommend Guanguiltagua Expeditions. E.L.

We spent several great days with Dennis traveling around the Otavalo area in October. I found him through his positive reviews and emailed him despite being skeptical of online reviews. He was quick to respond and flexibly worked our changing schedule and our last minute plans. He burst on to the scene at our Hotel in Quito and picked us... More

4 adults took the trip of a lifetime with Dennis...8 days of back roads and highways seeing Ecuador from all sides (and altitudes!) For a very reasonable price (we compared other companies) Dennis provided an interesting itinerary but was very flexible...whether it was to take photos, shop, or see places not on the agenda. He helped us connect with his... More
