What people are saying about Quito

Amazing experience full of variety with fun and helpful guides.

This experience is so fun with many options to choose from, tons of flexibility, and an expert guide. Diego, Andrea, and Gabriel were an incredible guide team. Zip-lining gave us incredible views and we got to do way more routes than we anticipated for such a good price. Then we did a coffee agricultural tour that involved everything from picking the coffee cherry and processing it all the way to drinking it fresh. We got to do a chair lift with more amazing views and ended at a very nice restaurant that also sold tasty Mindo chocolate. Diego was very knowledgeable and accommodating, Andrea captured all our best moments, and Gabriel got us everywhere very safely. Would highly recommend, very good deal.

The Mindo Cloud Forest left us completely fascinated. A natural place of great beauty. The additional activities we did (zip line and chocolate tour) turn out to be more than recommended. A special mention deserves the guide who accompanied us, Óscar. He coordinated the trip to the thousand wonders, was very attentive to us and made a two-hour car trip most enjoyable. We are totally grateful to you for the day we spent.

Mindo is worth a trip

I had booked the tour months in advance. Communication worked extremely well from start to finish. Punctual hotel pickup. The tour guide had a good knowledge and told us a lot of interesting things about our trip. We visit a hummingbird garden, a butterfly farm and learned a lot about chocolate making. The subsequent tasting of different chocolates was a real treat. I highly recommend the tour.

Trip is better than it sounds. Hummingbirds, hike to waterfall, cable car ride and ride down the mountain on the lift were all great.
