          In the morning we will visit Cuenca City, declared a Cultural Heritage Site in 1999 by UNESCO. We will visit some of the most representative sites in Cuenca like Calderon Park, the Modern and Old Cathedrals, the Flower Market, and Larga Street with its colonial houses, all of which are unforgettable. We will also visit the Tomebamba River and the Broken Bridge, since they are famous landmarks of the city. Of course, an attraction impossible to skip is the Ethnographic Museum (Museo de las Culturas Aborigines), this is a must-see because of its unique art collection from across the country.

          Otavalo and the “Way of the Roses”
          Our family of four (two adults two teens) was promptly picked up by Erick the guide and Pablo the driver. Erick approached us straight away at our hotel pick up and explained what was happening for the day. He was kind and sincere. We knew we were going to Otavalo and the markets but it was the shade houses of roses that intrigued me on the way. Erick could see I was very interested and so stopped at a roadside florist for me to see all the roses they were selling. We always felt safe and looked after. It was our last day in Equador and we had a great time walking to the waterfall. I would definitely recommend this private guided tour.

          Last minute trip planned perfectly by Alejandro !
          Alejandro was fantastic ! He coordinated a tour for us in Peru in less than 24 hours, booked us accommodations in the Amazon with almost no availability , and was overall detail oriented in figuring out our paperwork and itineraries at the same time calm , not rushed and super available. Couldn’t recommend them more

          Great Guayaquil Day Tour
          We did the day tour of Guayaquil in order to get to know the city before we took off to the Galapagos the next day. There were four of us… My wife and I and two teenage boys. The tour was about 3 1/2 hours long and it included history, culture, a little sightseeing, and some food tasting. Allison was an excellent tour guide as a city native. Knowledgeable, eligible, great communicator before, and during the tour, and showed us a lot of the city. I recommend this tour highly.

          Beautiful day in the North Highlands
          Josue took us on a private tour from Quito to Otavalo and other sites along the way. He was warm and welcoming, provided good explanations of what was special at each place, showed us beautiful views, and found us wonderful places to eat. His English is excellent. We had a great day and felt well cared for. Thank you, Josue.

          One week biking tour
          Fantastic tour. One week cycling in the valleys and highlands around Quito. Excellent guide and driver, accommodation in beautiful surroundings and a good balance between cycling and sightseeing. This was an unforgettable experience and I would travel with GuideEcuador again.

          Excellent tour and wonderful Guide
          Today was a wonderful leisurely, walk around Guayaquil. Our tour guide Antonio was extremely knowledgeable about his country and was sure to provide us with the most in-depth explanation of the culture and answered all of our questions. We walked 440 steps in the old city and enjoyed the most beautiful sunset atop the lighthouse where we got a chance to cool off with a wonderful breeze. It was a wonderful adventure for couples with a beautiful and romantic sunset at the end.

          An Experience of Rich Culture and Stunning Natural Beauty in Ecuador with a Top-Notch Guide
          We had a wonderful trip in Ecuador’s mainland, exploring Quito, Cotopaxi National Park, Banos, Alausi, Cuenca and Guayaquil. We experienced rich culture, stunning architecture, and awe-inspiring natural beauty (including a thrilling cable car ride over a canyon, and beautiful hikes to a waterfall and to see views of majestic volcanoes). Our guide Alejandro was phenomenal, sharing Ecuador’s history and special views with us and local highlights, including eating soursop and chiremoya (delicious fruits), sampling homemade fresh taffy, enjoying roast pork at a market, and drinking canelazo and corn beer. He explained the fascinating backgrounds and customs of some indigenous groups. Alejandro took care of everything for us, providing all transportation and making sure we got where we needed to go. The accommodations were superb, the food was delicious, and the people were very friendly. We had no safety issues or concerns at all. We came away with appreciation for Ecuador’s indigenous and Incan roots and Spanish influences, resulting in a vibrant cultural mix; and for Ecuador’s respect for its natural resources. We have taken many tours, and we can say that Guidecuador’s service could not have been better - and the destination was spectacular.

          Andean Jewels Tour
          I personally enjoyed this tour a lot. We got to see a lot of amazing views and through our tour guide Alejandro, we got to learn and experience a lot of Ecuadorean culture on a personal level. The tour was very well planned and the weather also worked in our favour, making the trip much more fun! We also had a small and private group so it was much more versatile. I would definitely recommend this tour as we were able to go from the north of the country to the south, and wouldn’t have been able to do it without GUIDEcuador. Thank you for the fantastic 10 days!

          8 days of Ecuador Beauty
          JuAnDa was an EXCELLENT guide! He never ever gave me a time limit in a location; instead, he always asked me how much time I would like there! He always tried to add cool things to the itinerary and was full of surprises each day. He went out of his way to make sure I had the things I needed each day and at the hotels. My visit to Ecuador is unforgettable!

          Trip to the Galapagos Islands
          We traveled to the Galapagos using GUIDecuador. Right from the planning stage which started about 9 months before our actual trip the communication that GUIDecuador maintained throughout with us was excellent. Alejandro who was our main contact person was thorough and created a custom itinerary which suited our needs perfectly. The team took care of our internal flights/our inter island transfers/booking our excursions and tours. In our independent travel days (which we wanted) they gave us really helpful tips and ideas of what to see. While we traveled Alejandro made sure to check in with us every day and before and after every transfer to make sure things were going smoothly. GUIDecuador’s guides and contact people in the Galápagos Islands were very knowledgeable and extremely helpful. Our daughter fell sick while in San Cristobal and the team went out of their way to ensure that our itinerary changed to suit our convenience and we got the help we needed. I highly recommend GUIDecuador and would absolutely use them again for our South American travel.

          Our recent 15-day Galapagos & Ecuador trip with Guidecuador was an exceptional experience.
          From the moment we were picked up in Quito until our return for our flight back home, everything was well-organized and seamless. Highlights: Tour Manager: Mr. Alejandro, our tour manager, was an absolute gem. He was incredibly knowledgeable, humble, and always willing to go the extra mile to ensure our comfort and enjoyment. His insights into the history and culture of the region enriched the experience significantly. Thank you again
