What Our Clients Say

Mark Plummer, UK

The highlight for us was the community visit where the local people were so friendly and kind. The activities were very varied and kept us interested and busy throughout.

Pennie Sykes, Scotland

Most tourists seem to visit the Otavalo market, but not much more. This region has so much more to offer if you have the desire to look. The flexibility of our guide allowed us to make various unplanned stops, and really meet the people. We could not manage the trek up to Fuya Fuya, so our guide took us to Peguche Waterfall instead.
