In less than 24 hours I was provided with an itinerary that fit my requests, and then during the trip everything went according to plan. Saw some great sights with a variety of styles of tours in the differing areas of the country. Transport, lodging, and food were all excellent.
Put together a great itinerary with only abstract guidance on very short notice, and then everything went according to plan!
Nothing. Really I would say nothing needs improvement because everything went well. If I have to come up with something, there was one location that I stayed where no one spoke English at all, but we managed because they were very attentive.
All of the guides and drivers were very friendly, knowledgeable, and willing to entertain questions.
The camaraderie at Bellavista Cloud Forest was excellent, the hikes at Cotopaxi and Quilotoa were real work, which is exactly what I was looking for. One of my guides told me where to eat locally in Mariscal which was very helpful.
Gosh, all was lovely, but for me the first glimpse of the lake in the crater of Quilotoa and the hike while it was snowing, to (past) the refuge on Cotopaxi will not be forgotten!
