A Recent Review of this tour

Gustavo was a wonderful tour guide. He was very knowledgeable, friendly, and willing to adjust the schedule to meet our requests. I was with a group of 5 friends, and we all really enjoyed Gustavo and the 3 separate tours (on 3 different days) that he created for us. We were an inquisitive group with many questions that Gustavo answered well. I will definitely recommend Gustavo to friends traveling to Ecuador in the future.
