Admire Peguche Waterfall and take a boat ride on Cuicocha Lagoon
It was more than just going to Otavalo market. We visit a waterfall, one crate lake where we went on a small boat, etc. Daniel was an excellent tour guide. Very relax and wanted us to enjoy every moment. Nixon was a safe driver and they tried to accommodate all 12 of us.
We did so many fun activities on this trip, which included shopping, taking a boat ride through a lagoon, hiking a short trail to a waterfall, and celebrating the new year. Our guide, Fernando, was energetic and very knowledgable! This tour is worth the money and we would do it again without hesitation!
The guides on this trip were amazing and made the trip informative and fun loved stopping for the biscuits. They took pictures, answered questions, and kept us informed. We didn't get to go to the Cuicocha Lagoon, but on another boat ride that was on a lake. It was cold, wet, crowded, and the boat emitted a diesel smell. However, the rest of the trip was fun. Loved the stop at the sundial at the equator. I could have used a bit longer at the Marketplace because lunch happens here. The stroll to and the the waterfall was a highlight.
Great day out into the mountains. Our guide Alex was excellent and our driver obviously very competent. The sights included were all enjoyed: great explanations at the equator, terrific boat ride in the live volcano crater, lovely waterfalls and a reasonable amount of time to shop at the market. An experience we couldnt have done without the tour!
This was a great tour. Alexandro things interesting, and adapted to weather. Very informative, well worth the time and money. Also a plus was that I was able to book last minute and not have any complications.
