Hiring a driver - Quito - FOLLOW UP

Jump to last reply

As you might recall I posted a request for driver suggestions for a day in Quito. While I got a couple responses I ended up with a guy named Guillermo. Actually, he seemed to be the guy who would arrange for his 'associates' to pick you up and drive. He had someone meet me, at my request, when my flight landed at midnight and they took me to my hotel and then in the morning another of his associates, Fernando, picked us up at the hotel and spent the entire day with us driving us to the weaver's market and made some lovely stops along the way. Fernando's English was good, he has been a professional tour guide for over 20 years and was just plain nice to be around all day.

Last minute attempts by one of the people I was on the Galapagos tour with to reach Guillermo didn't go well as he does not always have e-mail connections ~ he frequently drives folks around for an entire week to remote villages ~ so its best to contact him and arrange for things well in advance.

Contact info for Guillermo is:
