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

Dennis is very knowledgable of the history and culture of Ecuador. He traverses the back roards expertly, and gave us an inside look at this beautiful country like no one else can.

Traveling to Galapagos Islands was really a delightful experience. Just wanted to let you know that I had an amazing experience with our tour designer Dennis; the entire trip was well-organized from accommodation to traveling. Thanks to the Guanguiltagua Expeditions team for offering flawless services. The staff was excellent and patient in handling all booking and solving all queries. Special... More

We booked several day trips with Guanguiltangua while in Quito. We booked four separate trips including one overnight trip. The tours were personalized, unique, and a great value. Our guide, Gonzalo, was friendly and knowledgeable. Our driver, Oswaldo, was pretty awesome too. We had a blast, and enjoyed the adventures. Having been on tours before, the connection with your guide... More

Our trip to the Andes & Jungle region of Ecuador was superb and was exactly what we were looking for. It was a mixture of 4x4 adventure and sober lodges and haciendas. Our tour guide Gonzalo had arranged all our ground transportation, accommodations, food and several attractions. He was on time and welcomed. The car (a Land Rover Defender) was... More

We are back from the magnificent beauty of Galapagos Islands and have to admit that our tour was amazing!! I would like to thank Jairo, our tour guide for such an exotic trip.
