Unfortunately, this was my most disappointing tripadvisor experience ever. Even though the tour included transfers, the venue would not communicate with me regarding pick up/drop off. Since our hotel wasn't listed when I registered/paid, I emailed them to confirm (and followed up_, and they simply would not respond. When I contacted customer service, they also were not able to get a response. My hotel was gracious enough to reach out to them directly by phone - again, no response. Someone did arrive more than 30 minutes past the advertised pick up time. At the event another couple told us their pick up never happened so they paid for an Uber to avoid missing the show entirely.

We've attended several dinner+ show events in different Central/South American countries and those always provided dinner style seating where you were served dinner during the performance. For this show, the 7:30 show takes place completely separate from dinner. The show itself was culturally interesting, but we chose to leave at the intermission (paid for an Uber). After the first hour, we were pretty hungry and preferred to leave/eat rather than sit through another hour before the prospect of eating. Not sure where the dinner was served as the area where the performance takes place didn't appear to support meal service. Really disappointed overall.

We apologize for the inconvenience, direct contact was maintained with the hotel indicating the time in which the transfer was going to pass. The passengers had a delay of 10 additional minutes due to traffic circumstances in Quito, since the Casa Gangotena hotel is located in full Historic Center. Apologies were apologized for the misunderstanding but all services remained paid and in progress. We apologize again and clients may use the service again at no additional cost if they require it.

The show ranks with the most beautiful I've ever seen in my life. The talent, colours, culture, people, music, it is amazing, worth it 100% This really opens you up to the beauty of the Andean culture right down to wishing you could be part of it. They all look so happy during the show, smiling so confidently, it is just magic. They blend the costumes, the colours with their movements so perfectly, I wish I could see it again and again. And the musicians providing the music is world class. Every single person in this has unbelievable talent. This will count as the highlight of my trip to Quito and I will never forget it. The dinner after the show takes you to a place with very friendly staff and also nice traditional Ecuadorian food, which is always important to me when I travel. This show is perfect, I would not change anything and I recommend it to anyone wanting a rich heartwarming cultural experience.

The show was amazing. The dancers and musicians were great and I loved their costumes. The dinner was also very nice. A big surprise was that our driver was also one of the dancers!

An incredible rich cultural experience! The dance! The drama! The costumes! The music! An unforgettable, not to be missed, once in a lifetime event. And front row seats! And you even get to join the troop for the finale dance!

An absolutely phenomenal show, with amazing costumes, filled with rich culture and heritage. The pick up was really smooth and brought us to the venue. Where, we were welcomed in, and offered a complimentary Canalazo. After the show we were taken to a restaurant with an amazing view of Quito at night. Overall, I recommend this experience highly, to truly get a great insight into Ecuador's culture.

The show was super, very nice, we had front-row seats.
The transfer from the hotel to the venue went smoothly and after the show transferred to dinner.
Dinner with a superb view from the restaurant over Quito.
Worth every penny. Must do it when you're in Quito. !!

A wonderful Ecuadorian folkloric dance show with excellent performers. Great entertainment for everyone who wants to learn about different cultural customs from Ecuador.
I travelled with my students (11- 12 years old) and they really enjoyed it.

A must do while in Quito!!We were picked up at our hotel and brought to venue. Quickly welcomed in, offered complimentary drink and sat 1st row. Show was amazing and lasted around two hours. Our driver Fausto picked us up and taken to restaurant with an amazing view of Quito at night. Dinner was delicious. We chose empanadas and seco de chivo which were yummy. Then quickly brought back to our hotel.
