Here is what some of our clients told us about their experience:


...Thank you so much for the wonderful time we had in Ecuador. Everything was fantastic and well organized, the guides very knowledgeable and helpful, the places that we visited were marvellous...only time was running too quickly. We really wished we could have stayed a few more days in your wonderful country.

...On behalf of my family and myself, I´d like to thank you for the wonderful experience we had in Otavalo and in the community of Tunibamba. Special thanks to our host mom Carmen, she is so lovely and welcoming and we felt at home from the first minute. Thanks also to Antonio for taking us on a beautiful hike around Cuicocha Lake and being so knowledgeable about the area and local culture. We had a fantastic time and hope to come back one day!...

I didn´t really know what to expect....homestay with an indigenous family? Hmmmmm, could be awkward, I thought. But what an experience!! Loved every second of it! ...and please send my love to Luz Maria, she treated me as if I was one of her kids...
