Gonzalo gave me and one other friend a private tour through the Quito old town. We first walked through the Ipiales area, an area where only locals shop, and no tourists could be found. Gonzalo's expertise shined through when he guided us through the grandest churches in Quito, where he described in depth history of each painting, statue, and architechtural... More

We had a 18 day tour with another tour company, but didn't feel like we had enough time in Ecuador, so we book a pre-trip extension with Guanguiltagua Expeditions. We were met at the airport by Donny and driven to the Otavalo Indian market in Cotacachi (there were 4 of us in our mid 60's). Not the best timing for... More

We arranged for a day tour of Quito with very little notice. We emailed the night before and heard back within 15 minutes. Within an hour, we had a trip planned with a private tour. We found the day to be just the right amount of "tourist stuff," but also found time to sit and relax. Dennis was knowledgeable and... More

Dennis helped us design the tour, picked great lodgings for us, shared his immense knowledge of Ecuador and its people, was very attentive to our needs and quick to accomodate possible changes to our plans. He was a very safe and... More

Ecuador is amazing, me and my girlfriend visited it in May and we're looking for a motorcycle tour, Denis set us up with a custom trip through the mountains leading to the amazing city of cinema. Aboard a ktm 990 we had one of the most amazing trips of my life.

Six friends toured the Highlands & upper Amazon (Cotococha Lodge) for 8 days with Dennis with a totally customized itinerary. Dennis' s amazing skills as an organizer, guide, driver, and communicator made our trip a super memorable experience.

Denis showed me the capital from such a perspective that I doubt I could find it my self. We've been on the beautiful hills around the city, where the view is just amazing (I strongly reccomend this part). He gave me a ride all around this mountains pointing out the most significant places. Then we had a night tour in... More
