Ecuador is a very religious country. His faith has crossed borders so much that the sanctuary of Las Lajas is visited daily by Catholic believers from Ecuador. People have great faith in the Virgin of Las Lajas and show their favors are the thousands of pictures that are stuck on the rocks around the church. It is almost a tradition that entire families visit the Sanctuary on more than one occasion.

Quito Tour Reviews

Customized Tour Was Fabulous

My family and I had a wonderful day with Gustavo (Gus). He worked with us to plan a perfect day traveling around Otavalo, Cotacachi, Cuicocha Cotacachi Cayapas, and Pegucha volcano waterfalls. His English is excellent and he shared an extensive amount of culture, history, geography, and current events with us on his beautiful country. His driving is great and he was very flexible and personable. We highly recommend Gus to anyone looking to learn about and enjoy Ecuador. Thanks for a fantastic day, Gus and happy new year to you and your family!

Pam B.

Hi Pam I want to say “ thank you “ All of your family are great people . It was a big pleasure to show you some of my country . I hope you can return to visit the rest of Ecuador Have a great year Gus

Our trip to ecuador

We had a great time with Gustavo (Gus) as our guide. Our 1st day of adventure started with an early pick up, To begin our way to Banos with a stop at Cotopaxi. Although all research done prior to our visit advised against doing this type hike with in the first 24 hours of landing, there we where, basking in the beauty of our surroundings while we caught our breath because altitude sickness is very much a real thing. Anyway we did so many activities during our visit like waterfalls, volcanos, hiking, hot springs, edge of the world swings, and Gus knows the best place for Ziplining, and thats just baños. He's very knowledgeable. You can feel free and ask him any question And he'll have answers. His wife is also amazing. Acting as our co-guide for our trip throughout The historical district of Quito. In summary, if you're planning to go to Ecuador and you need a tour guide, you should pick Gustavo. Trust me you will not be disappointed.

One hour out of Quito there is a zone where cloud forest show us a big variety of wild life specially humming birds.
