    Great tour! Our Guide Daniel was very informative and helpful. He took us to some amazing places to see hummingbirds and butterflies. Also made a special side trip so we could see some toucans. Accommodation was also very nice and staff were also very helpful.

    the Mindo cloud forest is OK but can be skipped given other exotic trips such as the Amazon rain forest or river cruise or the Machu Picchu or the Inca trail or the floating islands.
