We enjoyed the day driving through the countryside. Our guide was very good, explaining the local customs. We stopped at a fruit stand to sample local fruits, stopped at three different places along the way to Otavalo to see the views and sample biscottis and were serenaded on the bus by a young woman singing native songs. Our time at the Otavalo market was sufficient to do our browsing. We then stopped at a weaving shop where they demonstrated the use of old hand operated looms and had a wonderful selection of woven items for sale. We drove on to the town of Cotacachi for lunch and leather shopping before returning to Quito.
Juan was a great tour leader. I really enjoyed the tour and beautiful scenery. The day was a lot of fun
Exceeded expectations in every way - enjoyable, informative and a day well spent.
My wife and I really enjoyed this trip. The market was very interesting with great crafts and food. We would have liked more time there but we also enjoyed going to the Leather shops later that day.
The tour was great- lots to do in a day but definitely get your money and #39;s worth!
great day out of the city, really loved the visit to the shaman's house
Our guide Maria was excellent especially since she had to say everything twice spanish and English. We were given plenty of time to roam free around the market.
because of the guide Wilson.......simply fabulous
GREAT TOUR AND VERY INFORMATIVE GUIDE. MY ONLY RECOMMENDATION IS FOR THE GUIDE TO LEARN MORE ENGLISH SPEAKING SKILLS.
What an experience! Otavalo was incredible. The optional lunch in Cocapache was an excellent addition and Wilson was a good guide. be careful though, while they say they stop at Mitad al Mundo, it is not the place with the monument but a different location where the road crosses the equator.
