Gabriel is the best!

Our tour guide Gabriel was great. He showed a deep knowledge and enthusiasm when talking about his home country of Ecuador and in particular the specific sites we visited. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone. Also he spoke great English.
Great side tours along the way!

Obviously the main attraction was Quilotoa but what a difference it made to stop at the market and a family’s home. The ride was long so the stops were helpful in that regard but they were also fun to do!
great trip and guide but hidden fees
Laura_C, 14-05-2021
Excellent trip,.guide and experience. Some hidden fees of $4 pp for required "donations* - but worth it
Laguna Quilotoa is breathtaking
Anita_F, 30-03-2021
The actual Laguna (lake) was breathtaking but be prepared because it gets very cold being so high up. Walking down to the actual Laguna takes about 40min to an hour, based on how in shape you are and coming up is hell (you can pay $10 to ride a horse up). We also got to meet an indigenous family and stopped at a shop that had wonderful artwork made by the native people, worth every cent to support native work. We were scheduled to leave at 7am and didn't leave until 7:20ish because the tour guide was running late (hint why I didn't give a 5star). We had to ask the driver to stop after 2:30hrs because we were starving. They were good at accommodating but make sure you speak up. The tour guide was decent, wish their was more interaction though.
