    Danny was an excellent tour guide, providing a lot of information, as well as a very nice guy. Our driver was great, too. We enjoyed the cable car ride in the forest, hike to and from one of the waterfalls. We went to see amazing and colorful hummingbirds, had a great time doing the chocolate tour explaining how it transforms from a raw fruit to the delicious finished product. The restaurant for lunch was very good. We highly recommend this tour with Danny.

    We had an excellent tour with Carlos, he was attentive, informative and friendly to spend the day with. Carlos offered a number of great choices and we selected the hummingbird sanctuary, walk to the falls, cable car and chocolate factory tour. We ate lunch at the chocolate factory which was excellent as well! My husband had some mobility limitations and Carlos was very patient and safety conscious. We would highly remind this tour and Carlos as the guide as well!

    Great exploration, fun and entertainment. Our guide Carlos is a fantastic and friendly guide. We covered the Orchid farm, the butterfly reserve and the chocolate factory. We then had a fantastic lunch with a million $$$ views. Additionally: this tour give an overview of Ecuador that is outside of Quito, which is an added bonus. Highly recommended.

    The best part of the tour was Omar, the tour guide/driver. He was knowledgeable of everything on the tour and more. We enjoyed the humming bird sanctuary and the walk to one of the falls. Plus, he took us to a restaurant with our favorite Ecuadorian food.

    Leider konnte uns der Guide nichts earzeahlen ueber diese Reise da er sich nicht ausgekannt hat. Er war fuer uns nur ein Transport zu den Ort. Dort mussten wir alle Eintritte selber zahlen und hatten keinen extra Guide der uns etwas erzeahlen konnte. Der Herr hat sich aber bemueht und hat uns zur Polizeistation gefahren weil ich am Abend davor ueberfallen wurde und alle meine Sachen wurden gestohlen

    Seeing so many hummingbirds close up, riding the cable car to explore the hiking through the rain forest, stopping at a local restaurant, seeing the trout farm.

    We took a day trip from Quito to Mindo and we had an amazing day. We went zipling, saw many beautiful birds. Our guide Luis was kind, fun and knowledgeable. We highly recommend this experience!

    My family, including a 13 and 15 year old, did this tour July 15, 2022. William was out guide and he was fabulous! We were picked up at our hotel around 7am in a private passenger van which had plenty of space for the five of us. The travel time to Mindo was approximately 3 hours. One the windy way (be weary if you get car sick as you may need to take something) we stopped at a hummingbird sanctuary. The cost to to see these were an additional $5USD per person. They were pretty and there were plenty of them to see, along with some other tropical birds. We did a little hike around the grounds here as well. The coffee company was closed when we were there. (30min) We carried on to Mindo proper. The next stop was up past the town (a torturous road) to hike up to some waterfalls. Access to the was via a cable car ($5USD extra per person also). The views from the cable car were stunning. Our hike took about an hour round trip with only a few stops for photos. As a seasoned hiker I would say this hike was easy to moderate (mostly due to altitude). We did it in running shoes. Next was a lovely lunch where we shared a giant delicious pizza. If you have the change to enjoy the pinneapple juice, I recommend it! (60 min) We then had a short walk to the butterfly farm ($5USD per person extra) which was cool. (30 min) The Yumbos Chocolate factory was our last stop ($7USD per person). I think this was my personal favorite as we learned about cacao in Ecuador and the chocolate making process. The tour finished with a delicious tasting of their award winning chocolate flavour. We were here for at least an hour. William was great, sharing some of his knowledge and answering our questions throughout the day.
