I contacted Dennis in late December to see if I could arrange a tour from Quito to Cuenca. He was able to accommodate me with the Avenue of the Volcanos tour, including the usual stops at Otavalo market, the Equator, Cotopaxi, Banas, Alusci train, Inga Pirca ruins, etc. Dennis was helpful and professional. He is a native Ecuadorian and speaks... More

We just returned from a great trip to Ecuador, which included time in the Amazon and the cloud forest. We made sure to have one full day to explore Quito. For this day, we arranged a tour with Dennis. He has great energy. He took us around Quito and we also went to the equator. Dennis was very flexible and... More

We organised to travel with Guanguiltagua Expeditions through Dennis and outlined what we wanted to do and the type of hotels we wished to stay in (3 star). The trip lasted 6 days (Guayaquil to Quito) and we had a great driver (Eddy) who turned out to be an exceptional guide as well. We thoroughly enjoyed Cuenca and again Eddy... More

We've just returned from two weeks long tour to Ecuador. Dennis has helped us to put together the itinerary, arranged all the day tours and transfers between the Galapagos Islands. It was really easy to communicate with Dennis before and during the trip. We've had unforgettable experience to walk the streets of old city Quito with Dennis at night. During... More

We arranged a day trip with Dennis to Otavalo and Quito. Dennis did a great job with the itinerary and telling us about all of the sites. We added a last minute visit to the Equator museum and Dennis was very flexible about accommodating this even though it was a very long day for him. Dennis is also very personable... More

I was lucky to be able to get a city tour of Quito with Dennis who knows his city really well. What sets him apart is not just the historical information which he is well-versed in but the interesting details and remarks that link to the art in the churches, evolution of Quito as a city and Ecuador as a...

Dennis arranged a tour which included the Cloud Forest near Mindo, a walk to the refuge at the snow line of Cayambe, and a great narration of the cultural and political history of the area with our guide, Pablo. We stopped at local restaurants for lunch to taste traditional Ecuadorian foods. The accommodations that he arranged were charming. We were... More

Dennis arranged two day trips in the Galapagos, both snorkeling adventures. The tours were fantastic, great guides and fabulous scenery. Arranging the tours was easy and Dennis made sure all arrangements were made ahead of time so there was no last minute planning involved. Only one hiccup, local guides from the first tour passed along some incorrect information on the... More
