Our guide was incredible! He was attentive and gave us lots of local history and information during the drives between locations. The small local coffee and cacao farms were also very informative and the coffee and chocolate were excellent. I am very glad we chose a day to do this tour!
Not to miss!

Angel was very good at explaining the history of Ecuador and Quito’s culture. He was very attentive to our questions or requests. Having previously been to both places, he had a great relationship with the staff and owners. We were warmly welcomed.
Just do it! You will not regret.

I first did a trip to the Galapagos Islands with Takiri. I was so impressed that I decided to book this day tour from Quito. It was amaaaazing. We first stopped at this tiny hole in the wall kinda place to check out these cute little hummingbirds flying around while you're having a drink. Then we headed to a coffee farm that was in the most beautiful setting: rolling hills, cloud forest. It's one of those place that you'll see in magazines. We tried different coffee drinks (delicious!) and walked around the farm, seeing the whole process of tree to drink. We even participated in some of these activities. Then we went to a small chocolate farm. The tour was interesting, but omg: we tried so much chocolate (and cacao drink), and even the seeds etc. Understanding the chocolate making process, and tasting it at different stages: I'll never look at it in quite the same way. Totally recommend this tour!!
Fantastic experience

We did the coffee + cacao day tour from Quito. Our guide/driver Ivan was fantastic, with loads of information about the area and about Ecuador in general. The coffee plantation was the highlight - a really nice venue, and fascinating to see it all in so much details (the dogs Nala and Max were pretty cool too). The cacao factory and the hummingbird stop were great too! Highly recommend!!
