As the title states, this tour was phenomenal from start to finish. The day was packed with activities yet never felt rushed or exhausting. Our tour guide, Carlos, offered the tour in either English or Spanish. He was extremely friendly and knowledgeable. Overall, the tour was a great value. Hoping to use Imagine Ecuador for more tours in the future. P.S. the tilapia lunch (with local tea) was one of the best I've ever had. I am back in the States and will dearly miss the juices and teas of Ecuador.

Very cool day trip to Banos. Totally different landscape, very green. Also THIS is the place for daredevils, lots of activties like cablecar, airswing canopy etc,
