When I booked my trip to Ecuador through toursaroundquito.com I really had no idea what I would see. Once I arrived I realized that even if I had known what to expect, its beauty still would have shocked me. It is one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen; from snow covered volcano’s to dense jungles it has it all. Our Guide (Gustavo) did a fantastic job showing us all the best sites and then some. I cannot wait to go back and spend more time in the areas I was told about. Gustavo was very knowledgeable. His excitement to show me his country he loved was contagious. It got me excited. Can not recommend him higher. Vehicles were comfortable and dependable, and Gustavo was a very safe driver. Do not do a trip to Ecuador without hiring a guide, and do not hire any guide other than Gustavo.

Booking a trip to Ecuador was a daunting task. We had never been out of North America and had no idea what we were getting into. We didn’t even have any idea of what we even we wanted to see. We decided to give toursaroundquito.com a try because the site said they were locals and fluent in English. Through email correspondence Elisabeth and Gustavo asked us what our interest were and what hoped to get out of our trip. They made a personal day-to- day itinerary made just for us. This alleviated a lot of stress from our trip. Not your cookie cutter trip from the big tourism companies we had been researching. Upon our arrival they met us at the airport and took us to our hotel personally. (Another fear of ours taking a taxi or bus in a place never been and cant speak the language). After a few days there we got to know each other even better. They kept modifying our itinerary to meet our desires. Desires we didn’t even know we had except by talking with them. We want to personally thank Gustavo and Elisabeth for making our trip truly a once in a lifetime adventure. It was awesome leaving there feeling like we actually got to learn about the country and culture, not just sightseeing. We left there planning our next trip back and can’t wait to spend time with our new Ecuadorian friends, Elisabeth and Gustavo.
