Due to covid restrictions, we were not able to do a shared tour but were able to set up a private tour to Otavalo Market. What a wonderful day! Andres was prompt and knowledgeable about the tour and gave us great tips. We thoroughly enjoyed our day trip outside of Quito!

We couldn't do the shared tour for Otavalo on Tuesdays and Saturdays due to our schedule thus opted to book this tour as a private tour for $115 per person, and had Luis as our driver and guide. We were able to stay longer in places we were interested in and had the flexibility of only have two people in the party. We had a great time and Luis was very knowledgeable. Price is fair and within market range for a private tour. They were great about picking us up and dropping us off at our hotel in a timely manner.

Ecuatraveling helped us book this day trip. Organizing this was easy as they speak English really well and were clear in communications. We had a good guide during the day and also enough time for every separate part of the trip, like an walking extra mile (outside the normal route) around the lake, time for good coffee in the little village etc..
We also booked Cotopaxi trips (cycling and hiking) through Ecuatraveling, I don't have any negative experience with them, so just good service!

I had a fantastic day on this tour. Unfortunately, I forgot our guide's name, the young lady with curly black hair (so sorry! I have jet lag!). The tour was in Spanish and English and our guide did a good job of balancing out the translations and keeping us all entertained. I felt like the adventures kept going, stop after stop, which made for a perfect day. I loved the combination of market, water activity, nature, and souvenir shopping. It was the best way to enjoy the highlights around Quito. My only feedback is for our guide to give us lunch recommendations when she dropped us off at Otavalo Market. Some members of our group were hungry because they did not know where to get local food or what foods to try. Being dropped off at Otavalo could be intimidating if one does not speak good Spanish! Other than that, our group had a fantastic day together. I also appreciated that my guide dropped me off in front of my hotel because i was the last to depart. Thanks so much for the beautiful memories of Ecuador!!

March 12, 2020 - I hired EcuaTouring for a private, solo full day tour to Otavalo Market & Town, Cotacachi and Cuicocha volcanic crater lake. My combined driver and tourguide was Ivan Felicita --- he was excellent! He very good and safe driver, hiking companion and very knowledgeable for all the stops we made --- he speaks excellent English --- it made for a very special day! Michael at EcuaTouring was also very helpful and efficient in communicating and organizing my tour --- all worked out very well just a few days before Ecuador closed its borders and airports to combat the coronavirus --- did it in a nick of time!
