      Miriam’s a wonderful tour guide! Take the tour!
      Miriam was our guide today and she was wonderful! It starts at the rooftop of the hostel—if I went again I’d get a juice here before the tour starts. It’s a great view and the jugos look excellent. On the tour, we learned about traditional healers, the history of Ecuadorian cooking ingredients, learned about the national dish, and tried local fruits and chocolate. Miriam led us through the Centro Historico, pointing out details we would have never known about and would have otherwise missed, and it made our overall Quito experience much more rich. She also recommended us a great local spot for lunch. It was really fun and informative.

      Good intro to the city of Quito
      The meeting spot for the tour is on a beautiful rooftop with great views of the city. Myriam was our tour guide and was so friendly and knowledgeable! The tour has many different stops including fruit and chocolate tastings. Would absolutely recommend this tour, especially for someone new to the city looking to get their bearings in a new place with history and tips directly from a local.

      Best walking tour we’ve ever done!
      We wondered around Quito with our lovely guide Diego, who showed us lots of local food places, told us about Quito life and history and let us try different food and drinks. We had a great day, would recommend if you’re looking for an interesting and informative tour of Quito!

      Wonderful half day free walking tour of old town Quito.
      Miriam was a stellar guide. She is very knowledgeable, friendly, upbeat and personable. Her information was cultural, architectural and historical. Loved the visits and tastings at the fruit market and chocolate cooperative. Highly recommend.

      Don’t hesitate to join this tour!!
      Diego was wonderful! I’ve done many free city tours but this was a very immersive experience! Getting able to try different exotic fruits, smelling the medicinal herbs, and tasting Ecuadorian chocolate plus everything in between was a wonderful experience! Don’t think twice. Book it!

      Amazing free walking tour Quito Old Town
      We had an amazing tour with Myriam, who was engaging and extremely knowledgeable. We leaned about archeological heritage, agriculture, good and bad energy, the revolution, enjoyed a bit of a food tour including natural remedies, encebollada, amazing fruits, and loved the chocolate tasting, She helped us gain a real appreciation of the Quitanos and the history of the this unique country.

      Another City, Another Free Walking Tour
      Fun and informative as always. I am a Global Vagabond and often take the “Free Walking Your” when I arrive in a new city to help me get acclimated.

      Ivan the Great Walking Tour Guide
      My husband and I are so thankful to have taken this walking tour while in the historic district of Quito. We've never done a walking tour, so weren't quite sure what to expect. Ivan was amazing in showing us the sites to include the market, restaurants, churches, town square, shops and a chocolate tasting while he provided some very interesting facts and history. Another couple that was on the tour with us have traveled to various destinations and have been on several walking tours mentioned this was the best one they've taken. Such a wonderful way to experience an area and we can't recommend this enough to anyone visiting Quito's historic district...and hopefully you're lucky enough to have Ivan as your tour guide!

      Enjoy Quito like a Local
      An amazing morning seeing the sites of Quito through a local’s eyes. Diego was great at sharing his culture with my wife and I, and provided a tour that was full of surprises. He was super knowledgeable (he had a degree in tourism and used to work at the city’s museum) and spoke great English which allowed us to have a stress free way of seeing the city on our first day in Quito. Highly recommended!

    A great way to get away from Quito for a day and see more of the country. Our guide Patrizio was a long-haired, colourful character and he told us a lot about the local life. We stopped along the way a few times but the most exciting aside from Otavalo was Cotacachi, where we witnessed the Inti Ryami Sun festival celebrations. Very real and exciting! The trip worth every penny, back with lots of shopping and unforgettable memories!!

    I really enjoyed this walking tour. Andrea, our guide, was very friendly and knowledgeable, and her historical anecdotes were very interesting as well.
    I would definitely recommend this tour.
