We sent Pajonal Tours our 5 week itinerary and requested their time and efforts throughout our trip to Ecuador, namely Quito, Cuenca, Otavalo, Vilcabamba, Cotacachi and Baños. We were given alternative suggestions, options galore and super expedient service. Many of our requests were not part of their packages and were custom choices - none of the requests were refused and... More

Our guide was Angel, who was knowledgeable and gave great commentary. We booked him through Pajonal Tours for two half days (City tour and middle of the world) and full day (Otavalo). He was patient, and the tours were great. Not having to share the guide (i.e. having a private tour) was not that much more expensive, and well worth... More

We had 4 days in Quito after traveling to the Galapagos. Maria was was very helpful and patient with me right from the beginning as we kept changing our plans pretty much up to the last minute. I was traveling with my 90 year old parents and we spoke little to no Spanish. Our first 2 tours were with Guillermo... More

I plan a trip for my mother once per year. This one was by far one of the easiest to plan due to the help of Maria from Pajonal Tours. She gave me a lot of prompt advice via E-mail and created the exact tour I wanted for my mother. She even went to the hotel I had chosen for... More

I found Pajonal Tours on TA and began communication without hesitation after reading all the positive reviews. Maria has great English, was very quick to respond to emails and provided options/ feedback for airport transport and tours of Quito and the surrounding area. We ended up booking 2 airport transports and the Historic Quito Tour, as we only had one... More

We wanted to make the most of our one day in Quito, so we arranged a private guide through Pajonal Tours. In organizing our day, Maria Vallejo (phone 09944105) was very very helpful. She accomodated the things we wanted to do and suggested a range of alternatives for other optional acitivites to do and see. She set us up with... More

Pajonal Tours arranged for me a private guide for a day in Quito. Daniel was an excellent quide. Visited the Old Town, various churches, museums, Guayasamin Art Gallery, Panecillo mountain top and many other interesting places in Quito.
