When Veronica was a 12 years old girl, she wrote in a piece of paper the countries she wanted to visit in the future, and her dream became an incredible reality when she turned a Tour Guide in Ecuador and later Tour Director in all Latin America. In her trips, she learned from indigenous leaders about Andean Cosmovision, and even more, her love for history brought her to travel to Egypt, Jordan and Israel. Veronica is delighted to share not only her knowledge, but the untold secrets that tourists from all the world want to hear about Quito, where she was born.

Katty is a proud Quito lover, insight traveler, art admirer, history avid reader and high-altitude hiker.
Born in Quito, her passion for traveling started when she once visited Africa and had the most amazing tour where the guide took the time to introduce his family and his house, and she realized that the familiarity that this guide created, turned into an unforgettable experience that marked Katty’s life: she became a Tour Guide!
Traveling became a passion since, to find more incredible people and now her dreams are to have a friend from each world’s country and become a human circulating library guide of Quito.

Quito is a beautiful combination of colors, flavors and smells. If you walk relaxed among its narrow streets, you will understand that time has stopped in its buildings, and that the magic of Quito will envelop you with its people. Welcome to Quito!

Quito is unique! Come to see the steep geography of Quito, its museums, its pictorial chronology of religious and modern art, the gold leaf decoration in its churches that have survived many centuries, and its gastronomy!! My favorites are goat stew (seco de chivo), humitas (corn steamed wraps) with chocolate, and the refreshing locally flavored craft beers, you are cordially invited!!
As a Tourism student, Paola used to be afraid of traveling alone, until she travelled to Mexico by herself. Once on the road, she offered another foreigner lonely student to sit next to her, the talk started, and all of a sudden, there was a bunch of other students sitting next to her making friends too, and they still keep in touch until today! Her most enjoyable memory is how much everyone shared about their countries, how many photos they took and night meetings full of laughter and joy! Today, as a Tour Guide, Paola is not afraid to make new friends anywhere she goes and proud to share her knowledge with anyone!

Daniela is the type of adventurous and pragmatic guide that appreciates life every second, either at practicing kick boxing, biking, swimming, writing dramatic poems, reading terror books, traveling or reading. Her dreams were achieved through her first backpacking experience, a whole month in Peru, traveling alone! But who did she get that courage from? Daniela’s Dad was her first tour guide in Quito, since she was a little girl, he transmitted her the love for its history, archaeology, its anecdotic legends... Today she keeps the desire of transmitting the same emotions about Quito to other people, through her passion for guiding and her forever and never-ending smile!!

Do you believe in Magic? Even if you don't, I would recommend visiting Quito. When you turn on every corner, you will witness small traces of magic. If you don't believe me, I suggest you visit the Church of San Francisco which is believed to have been built in just one night! Just come and see one of the first cultural heritage sites and get surprised by its history.
