I am going over to Galapagos Islands but staying for four days in Quito. I was thinking about exploring the city for a day or so and then visiting Banos and the Volcano Alley, maybe even see the Quilotoa Crater, perhaps do some mountain biking etc. I was thinking a trip over a couple of days with an overnight stay if necessary.
Is it easy to get private driver/guide in Quito? Better book it via the hotel I am staying at? Or perhaps book the trip through Trailfinders or such like? Any ideas on the itinerary and guides are much appreciated.
