Thank you again and all the best!
Italy, March 2017
Penny and I are now back in Australia after a wonderful trip. We would like to thank you for organising the itinerary, guides, and hotels for us. Both guides, Diego and Álvaro were, excellent, with very good knowledge of all the areas we visited, and the birds and plants along the way.
CasaQ was a great base in Quito, with friendly staff who got to know us with our three visits.
El Indio Inn in the centre of Otavalo was a good choice. Guango Lodge in Papallacta was a magic experience. The lodge itself is a work of art with the hand crafted timber work, large balcony, and forest setting. The birds we saw here were amazing, particularly the many different species of humming birds. The night we were there the power was out due to all the land slips, so the dinner was by candle light - a memorable night.
Our two day stay at Hakuna Matata, with the boat trip on the swollen Napa River, and the visits to the animal rescue centre, and then the traditional Amazon family home was a highlight of the trip. The guide here, Octavio, was wonderful with great local knowledge. Hakuna Matata lived up to its translation - ``no worries, nothing matters!``.
Álvaro and his driver picked us up from here for the trip to Banos, and tour of the waterfalls, spectacular after all the rain. Next day's visit to Quillotoa took us through picturesque landscapes to that amazing crater lake. Your phone call that evening was most appreciated, and probably inspired Penny's adventurous spirit the next day! The day tour to Mindo was a great day, with Penny deciding we were going zip wiring through the forest canopy - wow, what a ride! The butterfly centre and bird feeding tree just outside the restaurant window was also remarkable, especially having a visit from a toucan. The last day of the tour to Pululahua, the visit to La mitad del Mundo, and the tour of old Quito was a great finish.
The next 18 days in Galápagos was one of the most outstanding experiences we have had. Angelito and crew were all we could have wished for. The landscape and wildlife were breath taking. The snorkelling the best we have done anywhere. So much to take in - so many photographs!
On our return to Quito, your driver Vincent was very efficient and helpful, especially getting us back to the airport so early in the morning.
So thank you and the guides and drivers for looking after us so well.
