With our tour, extremely unlikely. All the stops are carefully vetted by our team and we run regular checks to make sure they maintain the same standards, both in terms of quality of the food as well as hygiene.
Food poisoning is of course something that shouldn’t be ignored in Ecuador, so we always recommend to eat or drink at places that were recommended by at least one local person, combined with positive online reviews.
Just like in any big city, you have to be careful with your belongings in crowded areas. You will want to watch your pockets, during crowded portions of the tour. Of course, Ecuador being a country with big inequalities showing off the latest smartphone or an expensive watch in the street could unfortunately make you a target for thieves. But if you keep a low profile, you should be more than fine! We know the area quite well and after attending plenty of guests, we have never had any problem.
Our team member Alejandra, a proud native of Quito, has meticulously curated this Street Food tour to showcase the gastronomical aspects of Ecuador’s capital. Of course, she’s happy to share the importance of street food in her hometown.

He or she will ensure that you’ll taste the most important street food flavors and tell you everything you want to know about the city and its gastronomy.
If your curiosity extends beyond the offerings on our tour platform, don’t hesitate to reach out for a custom trip. We’ll collaborate with Alejandra to provide you with tailored options that will elevate your Ecuadorian holiday experience!
