Learned tons and was able to walk around and experience the top of the teleferQo with lots of photo ops and then tasted lots of fruits in the market and saw (and learned about) many Equadorean products, followed by a yummy local meal upstairs at the market. Highly recommend Alejo! He has a great command of English too.

The tour was great, but our guide Alejito was even better 😅. We had such a great time as we walked around and learned more about Quito. Not only he shared so many great tips about Quito, he also gave us lots of tips about our next destination in Colombia. Highly recommend joining one of his tours.
