Beautiful Banos

Thank you to our guide, Veronica, and driver, Santi for a great experience. It was a long day but all worth it. We saw a lot of places like the Machachi Store (Capital of Cowboys or Chagras), Salasaka Market, Pailon del Diablo Waterfall, Manto de la Novia, and Casa del Arbol. We also had a taste of the popular Salcedo ice cream, and lunch at Puntzan Restaurant was yummy! We highly recommend this tour.

Fantastic day out in Banos with Pedri

This was by far my most favourite tour out of the 3 I did whilst in Quito. Pedro was my tour guide, and he was great. Knew exactly what to recommend I do. Was great with taking pics and making vids. Now, I have plenty of great content to post on social media. He was punctual to pick me up, polite, attentive to my needs, knowledgeable about the local history, and was great to chat with. His English was very good, which was a great bonus because, sadly, I don’t know any Spanish.

Fabulous day in Baños

Our guide Pedro and driver Jimmy were a great team. An 11 hour day of spectacular experiences and scenery just flew by. Pedro is SO knowledgeable about the area of Banos, the surrounding areas, the volcanoes and their legends. Conversation was easy and Pedro was very happy to share his knowledge of his country’s’ culture, language, agriculture, education etc. Pedro took us to a lovely local restaurant where we enjoyed an amazing lunch of whole grilled tilapia and trout. Both Pedro and Jimmy were very generous of their time and energy, they were extremely respectful and very happy to help out with any request making the whole day a wonderful experience. John & Susan
