I travelled to Ecuador with Guanguiltagua Expeditions Nov 12-20 2016. I had a good experience with the driver and guide Gonzalo. Dennis responded to my emails quickly and my bank transfer to him was received and services were provided as promised. Whenever I travel this is what is important to me: 1) Communication It was very important to me that... More

We did the one day trip of Quito with Dennis. He made the day very personal, fun and very educational. We spent the day at the equator, an interesting cuy lunch, walk through old town, up to the El Panecillo and we finished the evening with dinner in a nice upscale part of Quito. We also booked two snorkel trips... More

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...
