Jaime and Angela are very welcoming and made the trip to Quito and middle of the world very interesting. Quito was on lockdown during our stay but they were above and beyond and checked if the attractions were open and made sure that we see a glimpse of Quito in one full day. We visited churches, walked around old town Quito, visited a cacao artisanal, learned a lot from middle of the world museum and drove us to a laboratory to get our covid19 antigen test needed to fly back home. I highly recommend them and will definitely book the other tours they offer when I come back to Ecuador in the future. Thank you Jamie and Angela for an excellent and very informative tour today!

During our intensive planning of our trip to Ecuador last December and January 2021 we found very positive comments regarding the Canadian-Ecuadorian tourguide couple Angela and Jamie (Letsgotoecuador.com) which guiding private tours in Ecuador. We wrote our expectations at first for all together four day tours to Mindo, Cotopaxi, Quilotoa and so on. Just from the first replies of Angela we knew we are "on the right place" to plan our private tours. We are a couple from Austria who travels the world since 30 years and if we need a tourguide we prefer only private tours which are custom made with our expectations. We wrote to Angela and Jamie what´s our focus and what we would like to see in Ecuador and we got back a detailed, well organized tour plan, customized to our ideas. With many emails and What´s app messages we finished the details of our tour. Regarding the quick changes during the Covid pandemic we had chanced some parts of our journey, which ended in seven day tours with two overnight stays. Every day was very well organized, perfect selection of places to go, eat and visit. We traveled by Minibus with driver or with Angela and Jamies private car. Everyone was very safe driving, we felt very well and relexed. The preparing of every kind of circumstances was absolutely perfect, couldn´t be better. Angela organized PCR-Tests for us to be able to go to Galapagos islands, where the laboratory people came to our Hotel and did the test, Very comfortable! She reserved one test for us at Guayaquil airport after returning from Galapagos. Thats really tricky to get a test on carnival weekend in South America ! She made it possible ! After the cancellation of our Amazon trip (Covid again) from our travel agency in Europe Angela and Jamie booked a wonderful Lodge (Sacha Lodge) for us at the Amazon. And we did it !! At the end, we will say, it was the best decision to book the tours with Angela and Jamie. They are very well knowledgeable about their country, everything was perfect organized and absolutely safe. These couple is helpful far over you will expecting !! We absolutly recommend to book tours with Letsgotoecuador.com from Angela and Jamie ! They are doing a great job !! Thank you for everything !!!

Do not hesitate to book a tour with Angela and Jamie. We did 3 tours with them and all 3 were excellent. If you are wondering if you will feel comfortable for a whole day with 2 people that you have never met, then rest assured, you will. On the Mindo Cloud Forest Tour we did so many things in one day, without feeling rushed or tired. Some of the activities we did were visits to the butterfly pavilion, the hummingbird garden, an orchid garden, a local restaurant; we had an exciting ride on a cable car and happily ziplined through the forest. Though we had not ziplined before, we felt very safe since our guides knew the operators very well and so we knew that we would be well taken care of, and we were. We also took a bit of a detour to see a place that we requested, and we were so happy to see it. Angela and Jamie were so gracious to allow flexibility. We would rate them 10/10.

We did a day tour of various places in Mindo, while we had a program set prior to visit, some things changed on our end and Jamie and Angela were very accommodating. We ended up visiting taking a Tarabita cable car, did a zipline butterfly pavilion, did a chocolate tour, stopped by humming birds, and checked out the orchids. Jamie and Angela know Mindo very well, their recommendations along the way (great restaurant choice!) were super helpful, they are very easy going and delightful to spend time with. At the end of the day they drove us to the Quito airport - I have nothing but the best things to say about them, they made us feel part of the family. Their company definitely made the day tour to Mindo very delightful. Highly recommended to anyone who's looking for thoughtful guides.

As someone who has traveled to over 200 countries, I have extensive experience with tour guides all over the world and I can say without hesitation that Angela and Jamie provide the highest level of service and professionalism and I recommend them with the utmost confidence. We had the pleasure of going on a private Mindo Cloud Forest tour which they customized to meet our specific preferences and needs. As you can imagine, I was very concerned about traveling during COVID and Angela and Jamie went above and beyond to follow every possible safety protocol so we felt totally safe and cared for. From our very first communication, Angel and Jamie were highly responsive and provided detailed information and guidance on every question I had. Even though the dates of our tour were constantly changing, they were incredibly understanding, patient and flexible. Jamie and Angela's knowledge about Ecuador's deep history, culture and nature is encyclopedic and we felt grateful to learn so much from them. Being on the tour with them felt like spending time with old friends - they are incredibly personable and warm and we were so sad for the day with them to end! I did a ton of research on guides and can't emphasize enough how fantastic Angela and Jamie are. I'm absolutely confident they will exceed your expectations!
