This was a last minute, spontaneous trip for me, purchasing my airline tickets less than 24 hours before my trip.
The thought of going to Ecuador never even crossed my mind previously, so I was reluctant after reading some negative reviews about the area. I'm very happy that I did because I fell in love with this country. This tour kept us moving, staying active each day (with the exception of one "chill" day which included time to shop). I had the most amazing time of my life, doing something I had never done before and never thought I'd ever do -- mountain biking! It rained all in Banos, and what should have been a miserable day was the best day of the tour for me. We rode up to past 10,000' altitude and raced down the mountain. We were drenched, muddy, cold, exhausted and enjoyed the entire day. This was a first for me. Though the other activities were nothing new to me, each one was fun nonetheless. We had a wonderful guide, Daniel, and driver, Jose! Muchas gracias, Daniel & Jose. They were both very attentive and catered to us. Daniel impressed me with his intellect, knowledge, professionalism, friendliness, and physical skills and capabilities. I highly recommend this trip to those who enjoy staying active and constantly moving. This will definitely keep you busy. Thanks to Adventure Journeys for a wonderful time. Thank you to my wonderful driver from the airport, Jose, and to Jorge who took me to the airport on my last day. They were both conversant and shared some Ecuadorian culture with me as well. Kudos for an AMAZING time!!!
