Imbabura Tour Reviews

Great day out with Eliza

Eliza gave us a great day out while we were in Quito. She picked us up from our hotel (she had a driver for the day) and talked to us on our way to Otavalo, telling us a lot of interesting information about Ecuador and Quito. She came round the market with us in Otavalo and gave some very helpful advice. We went for a short walk and to visit a gallery where we were shown how the indigenous people make their beautiful clothes and artworks. We had lunch together and were finally back at our hotel about 5.45. Eliza went out of her way to help us find a particular item, stopping at a supermarket especially. Altogether a great day out. Do not hesitate to use Eliza as your guide.

Quito

Amazing time!

We visited a hummingbird cafe about an hour and 15 min away from downtown Quito. It was an amazing experience. The hummingbirds would land in your hands and eat! The cafe also had great empanadas. We spent about an hour there and then moved on to the cable car. Along the way Eliza was great about passing along interesting details and answering any questions that we had. The view from the top of the cable car was incredible. Overall, it was a wonderful day with Eliza!
