Cool chick! Natalia is very smart, kind, and always had a complete answer to any question I threw her way about Quito, Ecuador and the region as a whole. The locations visited were interesting and the information was detailed without being overly verbose. All of the food spots had tasty food with good value for money! Give it a go and you won't regret it!

I had a great time on this tour! If you’re looking to get to know the city better Nathalia is very knowledgeable about the city and the history of Quito! It is also very private which I liked and very inexpensive! Highly recommend :)

Wow. Just, wow. The tour was thoughtful and thorough without being overwhelming, and structured perfectly. Nathalia is welcoming and kind and funny, and will make recommendations, tell funny stories, and teach you little local phrases and secrets along the way. Four hours excellently spent!

The tour with Nathalia was great as it touched on a variety of different sights which includes local food! Nathalia is very knowledgeable and took time to explain things thoroughly while also making the experience fun and relaxed in the midst of the pandemic which is very important. The tour itself is very well structured and unique, and I recommend this to anyone looking to have a great local experience in Quito!

The excursion exceeded our expectations as Nathalia was very thorough and had answers to all our questions. Additionally, she created a perfect mix of events from historical site visitations to eating tasty ice cream, chocolatier and a great eatery. It was a pleasant eye opener that I recommend to all who consider a tour such as this one. Touché!

Nathalia provided such a great Airbnb experience online tour of Quito that the next time I was in Quito I had to make sure I did an in person tour with her. She’s extremely personable and knowledgeable. She provided my mom and I with such memorable experiences of the beautiful landmarks and restaurants of Quito. I highly recommend her Airbnb experience. 10/10. She took care of all the logistics so my mom and I just had to do was focus on enjoying the magic of the experience and her great talent of storytelling. She’s fluent in English and Spanish, which was nice because we ask for a customized Spanglish tour. She went out of her way to make sure we were comfortable and safe throughout the whole tour. Any improvisation we needed during the tour, she was able to accommodate and adjust with ease.
