  • Languages

  • Duration
    60 Minutes

Our destination is a small town north of Quito City. Its name is Peguche.

This is a very well known town because of the Otavalo people and culture. The Otavalos ( name of the indigenous) where enslave by the conquistadors in the time of the colony and because of their weaving skills they were put to do clothes and uniforms. After the Independence of Ecuador, the Otavalos kept weaving textiles as part of their culture and traditions.

We are going to start this tour visiting the Peguche plaza with its church and local houses and then we will enter Maria’s gallery called “El  Condor”.  We will interview Maria to know first hand the culture and history of this people. Maria will also show us the techniques the Otavalos use for backs-trap looming and the materials they use from the area.

Come walk with me and learn more about the culture and day by day of the Otavalos, one of the most interesting indigenous groups in Ecuador.

Hosted By David


Hi, I'm David. I was born and raised in Quito, Ecuador.
I graduated in Ecotourism in Quito city.
About 13 years ago, I started working as a naturalist guide in the Amazon Rainforest and now I specialize in Private Tours around Ecuador. During all my years working as a guide, I have been learning more about Ecuador, not only about nature but also about the history and culture of my country and the indigenous groups that inhabited here.
I have guided groups as well as independent travelers coming from many parts of the world, which allowed me to know firsthand the needs and requirements of the different guests visiting this country.
Some of my hobbies came handy with my job as a guide such as photography of fauna and nature, bird watching, trekking and mountain climbing.
With this new situation of the pandemic I kept myself learning more about art and culture of Quito and Ecuador and I am really happy that it is possible to start a new way of tourism with walkwitme and you!
My tours will range from visits in the Old Town in Quito, visiting farmers markets and once a week I will try to take you visit near by destinations in Quito.
I look forward to walk with you in Quito and Ecuador!
