Fantastic tour! Our guide Pedro A. was very knowledgable and helpful. We stopped at great points of interest along the way and shared a terrific lunch with the group after visiting Ingapirca. We lucked out with great weather, and Ingapirca is well worth seeing. This tour is highly recommended.
This tour was very informational.
