Hi Ricky, I had an excellent day thanky ou. Despite a little rain in the morning, it didn’t stop anything.
It was a great day from start to finish, the guide, andreas/Andrew was very good at English and we chatted all day long as he informed me of local areas, the day, plants, birds and animals.
I would thoroughly recommend using your company to anyone that would like to do this trip.
Kind Regards, Lyndsey Dove

I had a great day tour to Quilotoa. Booking through the website was easy and Angel was responsive to all my questions. My guide, Marcelo, was great. He was on time, pleasant, and professional. The drive to Quilotoa was scenic and serene. We stopped at a market on the way there. The hike down to the crater was steep, but beautiful. We took mules back up, and had a delicious home made lunch. I would recommend this tour and GreenGo Travel.
