Guayasamin house/museum is a must-do in Quito. All the visits are guided, with very knowledgeable and enthusiastic guides. Lots of art to admire, so well organized and telling an amazing story about the expression and life of Guayasamin. I will definitely go back again

I liked our visit but our guide wasn't very good. I couldn't hear what he was saying half of the time and he didn't gather the group before starting to talk about the next thing so usually you always missed the beginning. When the tour...More
