My husband and I used Santiago Mata as a private tour guide to explore the city of Quito in a few short hours. He picked us up from the airport, drive us to the middle of the world, and took us to the gold church in the old city. Santiago was wonderful, as he as extremely flexible. We booked him for a set time frame, but when we stated that we wanted to see a bit more, he was flexible and charged us a very reasonable hourly rate for the added time. He wanted to make the most of our short time in the city, and he went out of his way to make sure that we were satisfied. I would highly recommend Santiago to any English speaking travelers to Quito.
