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

Our guide Ximena picked us up on time at our hotel near Plaza Foch, and we spent the entire day sightseeing north of the... 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

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. Daniel was very knowledgeable about the places, history, current events, government etc. And his English is excellent. Maria responded quickly to my... More

We spent 2 nights in Quito before going to the Galapagos. Maria was super responsive to emails while we went back & forth on the hotel & tour options. We decided to stay at the Mansion Del Angel & it was fantastic. Everything was perfectly coordinated. The Otavalo tour was awesome. I couldn't believe how beautiful it is in Ecuador.... More

I booked two day tours with Pajonal from Quito to surrounding towns. The guide was AMAZING. He completely tailored the tour to my precise needs/likes. Maria was AMAZING as well. She went above and beyond and came to my hotel the day of the first tour just to meet me (at 7:30am!). I only wish I could get to Ecuador... More

I booked two tours with Pajonal, the first to Cotopaxi/Quilotoa, and the second to Mindo Cloud Forest. Both were fantastic experiences, both because the scenery/landscape/etc is beautiful and the employees at Pajonal were more than helpful. Maria was fantastic and quick to respond - would definitely recommend this company!
