Our guide Evan was extremely pleasant and knowledgeable and took the time to explain every place we visited. Out driver was most gracious and made the long transit enjoyable. Fortunately the weather was great with only a little rain in the late afternoon.

Cancelled on me last minute so i had no chouce but to switch to quilotoa. Staff were quite rude throughout the process and refused to apologise nor did they offer any compensation. The same agency did the quilotoa tour. Although it is an amazing place i wouldnt recommened booking with this agency due to the forementioned comments and the "guide" was just a rude, aggressive taxi driver. Yes he provided some information on the drive but once we got to quilotoa he just left us without giving us any insight. He was also rude about indigenous people that had kindly let us visit and slightly homophobic. Worst of all i didnt feel safe as a passenger (possibly a first). He was aggressive in his driving style. Beeping and flashing lights left right and centre. I understand it is prevalent in ecuador but the guide took it way too far. I felt that if i wasnt going to be involved in a crash, we would at least be confronted by another driver... Do quilotoa but not with this agency.

What an amazing experience we had in the Cloud Forest! We made several stops in Mindo, all of them wonderful. A little spot just off the road has set up hummingbird feeders and numerous varieties swarmed around us. There were several colors of tanagers as well. Then there were the butterflies. We stopped at a place where they raise butterflies and had the experience of them landing on our fingers. We watched several butterflies emerge from chrysalises. The tour of the artesanel chocolate factory was so instructive and enjoyable. Unfortunately now that I have tasted 100% pure chocolate it will be hard to eat the stuff sold in the US. The lunch we had there was exceptional. Throughout the tour our guide Annamaria provided clear, thorough information. She was so personable and sensitive to our concerns even though she was suffering from a cold with fever. She and driver Julio took care of al our needs.
