This tour is a great way to see the city and experience food in Quito like the locals do. Jose Alberto is very knowledgeable about the city's historic, geographic, and cultural landmarks while also very personable and friendly.

This was so worth it! I've got to say Jose is real good at what he does. He has a vast knowledge of the city and it's background. I got to see parts of Quito that I would never had know about. The value of this experience is phenomenal. I feel I lucked out and was the only one signed up for the day. I love food and we actually ate twice. I am not sure this is normal but both meals were outstanding! You would be doing yourself a real disservice if you come to Quito and do not take advantage of this experience!

Touring Quito with Jose was a wonderful experience. He knows his food! He also will personalize your tour to meet your needs and interests. We like to walk a lot so we ate and walked a bunch, and changed our final destination so we could walk more and because we decided to go to the craft market another day. He took us to very local spots where we saw no tourists. The food was incredible! He’s a celebrity in town so it was fun to see his fans stop us to say hi. Definitely recommend this tour!

José Alberto is a high energy raconteur. Very knowledgeable and passionate, with a zest for life. As others have said he is instantly recognizable by the locals and always stops to exchange a few words. We had a fun few hours learning about the culinary and cultural traditions of Ecuador, exploring a different part of Quito, and of course trying delicious drinks and foods. Always enjoy doing food tours when we travel to a new city and interacting with a local host.

Genial experiencia con José Alberto desde el minuto 0. Gran conversador, vas a aprender muchísimas cosas, no solo de la gastronomía ecuatoriana, sino también de la historia de Ecuador en general. Hubíeramos pasado horas de tertulia con el. Tour mas que recomendado por nuestra parte. Gracias José Alberto por el estupendo rato que nos has hecho pasar.
