A day filled with adventures! Absolutely unforgettable! Thanks Wilson!!

My fiance and I had an amazing time with our tour guide Wilson Tituaña for the Banos day trip. This is a private tour and although the activities cost is not included, it was still very reasonably priced for each individual activity and well worth it. The trip to Banos took about 3.5 -4.5 hours depending on traffic.

He picked us up from our hotel on time, and spent the whole day with us: driving us around, arranging all the activities for us, pointing out and explaining geographical landmarks, and answering questions about Ecuador culture.

He is very friendly and knowledgeable of local outdoor activities, such as whitewater rafting, ziplining, hiking, cable car, and cycling (bike rentals) alongside the roads of Banos. We were able to do all these listed activities because he set it up for us and we had a wonderfully adventurous day thanks to him. Wilson's knowledge of the entire place is unparallel and he is so considerate and went above and beyond. For example, while biking, he made sure to follow us to protect us from the cars and when he saw that I was extremely exhausted, he made sure to pick us up some Powerade. He also made sure to take lots of photos on his phone to send to us. You can tell that he is a genuinely kind person and he does his best to make it a pleasant experience for us.

Overall, I highly recommend booking this tour.
Great trip!

Recommend this tour to people who may not have as much time to spend in Banos! If we had more time we would have booked for atleast 2 day tour in Banos. Freddy was an awesome tour guide! Banos was a beautiful town!
Wilson is the absolute best ask for him by name

Waterfalls and Banos was fabulous. I would recommend a 2 day trip rather than one day. The downfall was our ‘guide’. Daniel was really just a driver. He did not point out names and history of different things on our trip. During our hikes he was so far ahead of us that we didn’t catch a glimpse of him most if the time. I give the guide a ‘1’ and scenery a 5. Note: this was a private tour too.
