What You Can Expect
Loved the colorful outfits, the music, the dances, everything!!
Charming contact picking us up at the hotel. Great show. Easy liason to return to hotel.
altlhough the building seemed a bit "nondescript", the show was fabulous !!
The Folkloric Ballet was great! I learned so much about Ecuador just by looking at the costumes and actions.
However, it would have been better if there was an English translation.
The second half of the ballet was a bit dull and fell asleep but over-all it was great.
Part of my tour includes a dinner. I was taken at Pimms. The food there was excellent and the view of the city in the evening is spectacular.
Now about the local contact, I wasnt impressed at all with the tour guide that was assigned to me, Juan David was the name. He is friendly yes, but he acted tired and even fell asleep when he was supposed to pick me up after dinner. Good thing, I decided to look for the van, otherwise I would have probably stayed in the restaurant more than I expected to stay.
In addition, although he speaks English, I couldnt comprehend him. Everything sounded slurred.
There was also a problem with the booking. When I booked thru the website, I indicated Nu House as the pick-up.
I got an email from Viator and they told me that I should go to Hilton Colon instead as this one was nearer.
All my emails indicated Hilton Colon. I have all the emails still should you want any proof.
On the day itself, I waited for the van and decided to call the 24hr hotline. Good thing, or I would have missed the show. The guide was in Nu House. No one informed him that the pick-up was changed to Hilton Colon. So, where was the problem? Was it Viator? Or the local contact?
