Great combination of nature walk with relaxing hot springs

This tour was a wonderful experience. Daniel, our guide, was so knowledgeable and personable! We learned a lot about the area, as well as about Ecuador in general, including its geography and history. Daniel helped us spy many beautiful hummingbirds in the Guango Reserve, but even just the walk through the cloud forest was beautiful. And the hot springs were of course lovely and relaxing. Very clean facility with beautiful landscaping. We wholeheartedly recommend this tour.
Great time and a great site.

The ride from Quito provided great views. The hot springs were great and just what was needed after days of travel. Had a great massage as well. The facility was fantastic with a great restaurant. Our guide Daniel was knowledgeable and full of useful facts. Carla and I can’t say enough great things about Daniel - he ROCKS!
Stunning scenery and interesting wildlife

Daniel, our guide, arrived promptly at our accommodation in a clean modern car. He was very knowledgeable about the birds in the areas that we visited and made adjustments to the itinerary to cater for our interests. We also enjoyed the stop at the bird sanctuary where there were facilities for refreshments. The time at the thermal springs was a relaxing break in the middle of a busy tour. Thank you Daniel for a great day.
Fantastic tour

Our guide, Daniel, was fantastic. He showed up on time to our hotel. He was friendly, experienced, knowledgeable, and courteous.

The tour was most enjoyable and memorable tour. After an about 1.5 hours drive, we first stopped at the Guango Birdwatching Reserve. A low-key lodge that is next to the Papallacta River, about 150 ft. below. We hiked down to the river (we first put on rubber boots to protect our shoes. The boots were available at the lodge). During the short hike, Daniel provided ample description of the birds and plants along the way. We had some relaxing moments afterwards at the lodge with cookies and coffee.

We then drove to the main attraction: the Papallacta hot springs. The complex was far above my expectations. It was well managed and organized. The six pools were clean, soothing, quiet with no loud noise. We had lunch in there: clean, well-prepared food at reasonable price. The site, overall, is on par with the Blue Lagoon in Iceland with about one fifth of the cost!

It was a majestic and memorable tour.
It was a relaxing way to...

It was a relaxing way to end out vacation and our guide was a knowledgeable birder, but we weren't lucky enough to see many birds, besides hummingbirds.
