Hi - I went directly to their website for contact info and sent them an email to arrange booking. Payment was via Western Union, so perhaps seems a bit of a hassle, but everything went very smoothly. We arranged with them to be picked up at our hotel in Quito. I don't remember the cost but it was reasonable and again it went very smoothly. We were collected right on time! I hope that helps!
