We used Barefoot Expeditions for a series of explorations of Quito and Ecuador after a Galapagos cruise. Kerstin and Diego put together an itinerary specifically to meet our needs. They also accompanied us to Baños and Otavalo. Among the highlights were:
• a fabulous culinary tour of Quito, including a visit to the home of Gabriella who taught us how to make empanadas and other Ecuadorian specialties
• in Baños we all enjoyed hiking to spectacular waterfalls, as well as an open cable car ride across a deep gorge, before relaxing in the hot springs pool at night
• Otavalo’s colorful market was a wonderful way to meet local artisans, and Kerstin and Diego arranged for us to stay with an indigenous family. We also hiked around Cuichocha Lake, with spectacular views from 11,500’ to the lake surface at 10,000’.
We enjoyed our time with Kerstin and Diego; they are knowledgeable and fun to be with. We recommend them to help plan your time in Ecuador!
