Tefa is very knowledgeable and also accommodating. I learned tons and tasted lots of great foods and drink. I feel I got to know the old historic center and learned a lot of the history and about Ecuador and Quito too. I highly recommend her. Her English is prefect too

Tefa was dynamic and had a great balance of fun and history content. She helped us see her city through local eyes and you could tell she really looked out for her group. We enjoyed the tastings!!

We would have found it difficult to find some of the places on our own. Recommendations of places to eat and drink were useful. Excellent command of English.
