          Mindo cloud forest, hummingbirds, tarabita, volcano, butterfly and middle of the earth tour!
          Cesar was very helpful and informative as a driver. He showed us some excellent places and we were able to see both hummingbirds and toucans. He stayed with us on the tarabita and showed us the best walking route. Plus gave us a great recommendation for lunch. We also saw butterflies, a volcanic crater and went to the middle of the earth monument. Excellent trip. Every one of our family had never smiled so much!

          Fun day trip!
          Our guide, Luis, was exceptionally accommodating and knowledgeable, willing to point out many landmarks and talk about life in the area. We experienced the Mindo Cloud Forest's offering of birds, butterflies, views and good local food, complete with a coffee planation tour. I highly recommend for anyone with an extra day in Quito!

          Wonderful tours with a great guide!
          I took private tours to Cotopaxi and Otavalo with guide Luis Hounday. Luis was s very accommodating and knowledgeable guide, who speaks pretty good English. Luis has close relationships with the indigenous people and served as a great ambassador. I would highly recommend him, especially to travelers without a strong command of Spanish.

          Knowledgeable, intelligent, honest guides - what more could you ask?
          Private tour of Mitat del Mundo + Intian + Pulu crater + archeological site. Angela and Jamie were great, from corresponding via WhatsApp before I even arrived (not only about the tour, but about restaurants, updates on Quito safety, etc) to giving honest opinions about options (some guides just say "yes" to everything) to adding fun "extras" (best Chilean enchiladas in Quito!) As an aside - Quito is safe. Both Canada and the US travel advisories have it as a 2 (meaning "safe, as long as you don't do anything stupid") This is my impression too - I did a lot of walking and never felt unsafe. If anything, it was a great time to travel - much shorter lineups at Mitat and Indian and I could walk right in to La Vid resto without a reservation

          Memorable Anniversary Holiday
          We had a wonderful trip to Ecuador with Luis as a tour guide to several different areas. Luis was accommodating to our needs and schedule. He drove us to Mindo, Banos, and Riobamba. His vehicle is clean and comfortable, and Luis has tremendous knowledge of every area. We were also well supported by Angela via email and had a fantastic driver to and from the airport. This was a safe and memorable vacation that was largely facilitated by the expert care of Luis.

          Great tours with Let’s Go to Ecuador!
          Our family went on two excellent day trips from Quito with Let’s Go to Ecuador - to Mindo and to Lake Quilotoa. Luis was our guide for both trips. We communicated with Angela to set them up. She was very easy to work with, responding promptly and modifying the schedule to meet our requests. Luis was informative and flexible and always very prompt. We highly recommend working with them in general and these trips in particular!

          Excellent tours with personalized attention.
          We had great experiences with both of our tours thru Let’s Go Ecuador. Angela was great to communicate with and helped planned customized tours that worked for our family of 4. Luis was our guide for both full day excursions, first to Cotopaxi where he guided us through the National park, helped get us acclimated to the altitude and guided us on the hike to the refuge. Our second tour included the 3 1/2 hr drive to Baños, a tour of the the area waterfalls and attractions and to la casa del árbol site. Luis guided us through the Pailon del Diablo waterfall hike gave detailed information about the area. On both trips we had a spacious van, it was clean and well cared for. Luis stopped at rest stops as needed, told us about the different towns we were traveling through and he was happy to talk about the people and country of Ecuador, share his knowledge and make us feel at home. We highly recommend touring with this company.

          Very responsive and friendly tour operator
          I started booking the transfer from Quito airport to Banos but ended long several tours via Angela and Jamie (Let’s go to Ecuador) such as Mindo and Quilotoa. They were very responsive (usually within the hour) and offered customised tours for our private tour. Very clear on price, duration and what to expect. I would recommend anyone looking for transfers or tours in Ecuador

          Family trip of a lifetime!
          We celebrated our 50th wedding anniversary with this exciting vacation for the whole family. Angela and Jamie (letsgotoecuador) were able to put together a wonderful, memorable, and cultural experience for our 3 generations of 25 family members ranging from ages 7 to 73. We wanted to visit specific cities and sites but didn’t know if it would be possible. Angela and Jamie pulled it off! Everything was well-planned and executed. They were extremely responsive before and during the trip. Communicating with them was very easy and fast. Angela has many connections throughout Ecuador and knows the best places and things to do for a cultural adventure. Our family loved Ecuador with its wide diversity from the city to the Amazon jungle to the Andes mountains. We visited Quito, Otavalo, Cuyabeno, Banos, and Cotopaxi with our large group without a hitch. The Amazon jungle and Banos adventure were the highlights of the trip. Angela provided suggestions and made arrangements for other short cultural stops along the way that were perfect, and the kids loved all of them. Restaurant reservations and transportation for a large group would not have been possible without their expertise and advance planning. Angela and Jamie were very attentive to our needs during our various tours and bus rides. Our family felt safe and secure traveling on such an extensive trip. I would highly recommend Letsgotoecuador without hesitation for both small and large groups and people of all ages! Ama la vida!

          Fabulous guides created the perfect trip
          I wish we could bring Angela and Jamie on all of our trips! By the time we arrived in Ecuador we already felt like friends. They helped plan a very complex family trip with 25 people, from ages 7 to 73, that took us all over Ecuador including Quito, Otavalo, Cotacachi, Cuyabeno (jungle), Baños, Cotopaxi, and Galapagos. Everything went off without a hitch. Angela and Jamie provided great hotel recommendations and helped us book everything we needed. While we were in country they helped with restaurant arrangements, airport pickups, and really anything we needed. They even had a custom cake sent to a restaurant to celebrate an anniversary. Their personal service and care truly went above and beyond. They were so accommodating and knowledgeable. Our trip was 100% customized for us and they came up with some really unique and interesting experiences for all ages. A trip of a lifetime! I’ll absolutely use them again and recommend them to anyone planning a trip to Ecuador.

        Sometimes you just score a jackpot when you choose blindly off the internet. This was our biggest score we have ever had, finding Angela and Jamie by chance, and we travel a lot. Angela and Jamie were so kind and so knowledgeable as well as great hosts and flexible with our needs (we got in late the night before and needed to shift things a bit, and they were so kind about everything!). We did the Middle of the World / Quito tour one day with them, and we did the Mindo / zip lining the second day. They knew all the ins/outs, how to bypass crowds, were kind enough to take our youngest on a hike when she chickened out of zip lining at the last minute. They even recommended a local cure (dragon's blood from a local tree) for a really bad yellow jacket sting I got... and it worked wonders! I am looking forward to visiting with our new found friends (they are more like FRIENDS than guides) next time we visit Quito, and they were so wonderful, I plan to have my parents go visit on their own since I know Angela and Jamie will take the best care of them, like their own family. We are vegetarian, and the food we had was some of the best we've enjoyed on vacation with them. They really know how to make you feel like a million bucks the way they treat you so well and with so much love and care! I cannot sing their praises loudly enough! Will be using them again and again.

        Angela (from Ecuador) and Jaime (Canadian by birth) are terrific! Four of us joined them for the day tour of Quito combined with a food tour. Then the following day we took their tour of the surrounding area. Their combined knowledge of the history of both Quito and Ecuador was impressive. We learned so much while enjoying their company. The information supplied and places visited gave us a great understanding of the city, it’s history and religious connections. They have an easy banter while involving their guests.
        The tastings were spot on….chocolate, empanadas, amazing biscuits, agave liquor, etc. there was no pressure to purchase but we wanted to take some samples of these home, so we did buy. During the tours of otavalo, Angela guided us when needed and helped with some bargaining. The leather section was terrific!
        We have travelled widely and always take tours. We highly recommend Angela and Jaime!

        The full day tour with Angela and Jamie was wonderful. We got in late the night before so they picked us up a little bit later than normal but we still had time for a full day of activities. We added the Alabado Museum to the tour which was an excellent choice. Angela had lined up the Guayasamin Museum as well, but we ran out of steam. We did not do the Equator Museum that day as we were going to visit the other site on the way to Otavalo the next day. Had a lovely lunch with them - and yes we ordered empanandas and potato soup!

        As all the other reviews have said, Angela and Jamie were a delightful couple. Angela was full of facts and figures and stories and Jamie added his own perspective as well. We were sorry to leave them at the end of the day. Besides their being excellent guides (and driver through busy Quito streets), the price for this tour was much less than what was quoted by our Galapagos tour operator because there was no middleman.

        Also our email communication with Angela to book the tour was very thorough and responsive with helpful info from the very beginning.

        We could not have been happier with the day we spent with Jamie and Angela.

        Jamie and Angela were extremely sweet and knowledgeable. Their “private day tour of Quito and Middle of the World" served as a great introduction to Quito as the capital city, and Ecuador in general. They were patient, kind, and honest. They understood our needs as tourists who have never been to Latin America, and they answered every question that we had. The tour was extremely informative, efficient, and was spaced nicely. There was no language barrier or cultural barrier, and we felt like we've learned a lot by the end of the day. We had a great time chatting and touring the city with Jamie and Angela, and I am not hesitated to say that this was the best tour that we have ever been on around the world.

        We had one of the best experiences with Angela & Jamie Hally, starting from planning our trip, to booking, and to touring.
        Angela & Jamie were very helpful, flexible, accommodating, and super responsive to our group of 8 travelers.
        We enjoyed their company and the wealth of knowledge they shared as we toured Quito and Mindo forest.
        They always put their best foot forward and you can feel that they truly love what they do.

        I went on four day tours with Jamie and Angela: Tour of Quito and Middle of the World; Tour of Otavalo market, Cotachi, Cuicocha Lake & Quitsato Ecuador Site; Tour of Mindo Cloud Forest (plus zip line, hummingbirds, butterflies and chocolate factory); and Tour of Papallacta: Volcanic Hot Spring Waters & Hummingbird Reserve. Each tour was absolutely outstanding. Jamie and Angela provided lovely transportation and provided incredibly informative and interesting tours. While all of the tours were fantastic, my favourite was Mindo Cloud Forest. It is an incredible little town with beautiful scenery and birds, birds, birds. I cannot imagine better tour operators (and I have been to 71 countries). Jamie and Angela go out of their way to make you have the best experience possible. You will not regret booking tours with them. (And book directly with them on their website, Let's Go Ecuador, for an above and beyond personal experience!)

They were always on time, the Cars were spotless and they were very accomodating and helpful in case we need something. Also, Angela was very generous in sharing her knowledge of Equador history. Equador had many sites we would like to visit and I would love to have Jamie and Angela as our tour guides again.

        We had two awesome days in Quito, Ecuador with Angela and Jamie. First, they arranged for a driver to pick us up at the airport and transfer us to our hotel. The next day, they took us on a walking tour of the old town of Quito. They took us to a small local restaurant for lunch where the chef specializes in making empanadas. It was our best meal there! They also reccomended other local restaurants to eat in. Angela is Peruvian and Jamie is from Canada, but both are extremely knowledgeable about Ecuador, and love to show off their country, history and culture. They were very fun to spend the day with. Prompt and friendly!

        Angela and Jamie were amazing. They did not rush us with timing and were very flexible and accommodating to our needs. I felt that they truly enjoy what they do. Made us feel like we were hanging out with old friends. Definitely recommend.
