Our guide Gustavo Tupiza was great and very knowledgeable. We were very pleased to have arranged with him for a full day tour in Quito and La Mitad del Mundo. He told us a lot about history, as well as about what is happening in the city now and about Ecuador in general. We learned a lot and had a lot of fun! I would definitely recommend this Quito city - La Mitad del Mundo tour with Gustavo. He is the best! Thanks for a wonderful day, Gustavo !!!
