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

We enjoyed the tour we booked with Dennis at Guanguiltagua Expeditions. Based on other reviews I had seen, I contacted Dennis and requested a custom tour which was different than what typical tourist request. I told him a little about our likes and he created a tour that included the local market in Pujili, the National Park Cotopaxi, Limpiopungo Lake... More

Five of us (4 adults, 1 teenager) hired Dennis to go from Quito to Cuenca. Dennis is very knowledgable of his country, the art, the architecture, and the food. We had the best pizza in Alausi, and wonderful lunches in two different locales that were off-the-beaten path of tourist stops. He was vey flexible in our changing ideas of which... More
