This tour was absolutely incredible! The drive was long to Quilotoa from Quito but the bus was great and we made a number of amazing stops along the way! We stopped for some gifts, food, beautiful sites and met some amazing people who live in the mountains. Jorge was our tour guide and he was knowledgeable and fun! The lake was one of the most beautiful things I have ever seen in my life. The hike down was tough but really fun, and riding horses up was amazing. If you go to ecuador this is a must do!
