Tefa was amazing and answered all our questions...not just about the sights but also helped us to understand Ecuador's culture. She connected us with many great shops and was very knowledgeable about all the historic sights we visited, making the history fun and accessible. Couldn't recommend a guide more. Three hours went by so quickly, and then we continued to taste chocolate and she was kind to continue sharing her time and expertise. Great tour!
