Outstanding guide

Daniel, our guide, was fantastic. During the waterfall hike, the other person on the tour and I began to struggle and Daniel could not have been more professional, caring, and helpful. The hummingbird experience was my favorite part of the tour.
Daniel was an amazing...

Our guides Danny and Jorge were excellent. We were lucky enough to have a private tour even though we signed up for the small group tour. The hike through the Mindo forest was a really refreshing change from the busy city of Quito. We got to take a quick ride on a cable car across the forest and on our hike we got to see 6 waterfalls. The chocolate factory tour was great - we got to eat so much chocolate, eat raw cocoa beans, drink hot chocolate, have a fresh brownie baked with the factory's own cocoa powder, and learn how chocolate is made! Overall a great tour and our favorite in Ecuador.
Everyone took COVID precautions - wearing masks all the time. Even the cable car was sprayed down with disinfectant after each group.
Fun packed day

Price included a hike to waterfalls, zip lining, butterfly farm, chocolate tour. Full day of fun, excellent value. The guides were very knowledgeable and spoke good English. Recommend!
Poor Communication

The tour itself was great - and Daniel was a solid guide. However, we paid up front for a tour with the entry tickets paid for in advance. However, Grey Line/Expedia/Chase Bank can't communicate effectively and Daniel was unaware we paid in advance and was not prepared to pay for our entries. We had to pay a good amount out out pocket that we weren't ready to pay - just to keep the tour going - and it put a damper on the day. We are still trying to get at least a partial refund and we are losing our patience with all three entities.

We particularly enjoyed the Butterfly farm and the Chocolate Factory.
