I have furnished condo for rent in Centro Historico Quito, few blocks from Plaza Santo Domingo, in between La Ronda with its galleries, shops, cafes, restaurants and El Parque Urbano Qmandá, cultural and fitness center with adjoining urban park. The best location in Old Town! For more info, check

Customer service in Ecuador. Another side of barricades. February 2013.
example - walking tours of Centro Historico Quito. I have to tell you I reject
every second potential client. The reason? Some of them want too much.My tour is very simple and cheap service, few
hours, starts in one place, finishes in other. If you just go with the flow of
my tour you will be entertained, have fun and interesting, useful info.
people write too many emails endlessly asking for more info about tour,
info about me, in details. Some people have busy schedule and try to
insert my tour in the middle of their already occupied day, others try to
dictate me time and places.
forget they are in the mountains, there is lack of oxygen, you cannot be in a
hurry to see much in one day. They forget that they can drop dead, literally,
in their advanced age with this excessive activity. People forget that even in Ecuador, it is bad
idea to bother person too much for little money. I mean you can try, but I am
not sure you will succeed.
vendors at one of the Centro Historico markets put a sign saying that they
don't sell to the Cubans, because they (Cubans) were too aggressive inprice negotiation (it was on the local TV
too, I don't provide customer service to the "Cubans".
