Private Mindo Cloud Forest Tour Including a Chocolate Factory
Corlyce B, May 2019
Daniel did an excellent job taking us up to Mindo. The drive was beautiful. We saw the humming birds, butterflies, the Chocolate Factory and walked up to the waterfall. We also took the cable ride up to the top and got rained on but it gave a beautiful view of the area. It was a very nice day.
Our guide was fantastic! However...
Chassidy B, Sep 2016
Our guide was fantastic! However, the road trip from Quito is really a little more than 2 hours each way, not 1.5. The chocolate tour is great, but we really didn't do too much that was centered around the forest. We could have done a canopy tour or something. Instead we went to a butterfly house that was nice, but I wouldn't consider that a garden. We had lunch in town at a place the guide recommended The Chef and it was good. The chocolate tour was also nice. The bird stop was a little odd, but they did get to see some pretty birds. All in all, everyone really enjoyed the day, just a long drive. We arrived at the airport about 1.5 hours later than expected.
