      Todos los servicios en Quito excelentes. Alejandro, el guía estuvo de 10. Como no pudimos hacer el teleférico porque se suspendió el servicio nos acercó a la zona de shopping y después nos fuimos al hotel en el Metro, única línea recién inaugurada.

      My husband and I stayed two nights at Bellavista in February 2024 and enjoyed our time there immensely. The staff could not have been more welcoming and knowledgeable. Our room was in the newer section, with windows on two sides, a large balcony and stunning views over the cloud forest. And the meals (included in the price) were very good. But the undoubted star of our stay was the cloud forest and the many creatures who live there. If you're a birder (we are not) you will feel you've died and gone to heaven. Even for non-birders, the number, diversity and beauty of the birds we saw were overwhelming. And frankly, the best viewing was from the lodge itself. Should you be mobility challenged, you don't even need to leave the lodge grounds to experience a multitude of birds from mere metres away. And if you love hummingbirds - and who doesn't?? - you will be blown away by your proximity to these tiny flying jewels. There are also a number of paths through the forest that Bellavista's experienced guides will lead you along ranging from easy to difficult. While we didn't see much in the way of wildlife in the forest - aside from a number of tiny frogs and birds high up in the canopy - it is absolutely worth spending time here soaking up the Jurassic-like atmosphere of this amazing place. A few words of advice for anyone intending to travel to Bellavista. It's a cloud forest, so expect it to be damp and often rainy in the afternoon: dress appropriately. It's also colder than you might think; a light down vest, layers and waterproof jacket are musts. Binoculars and/or a high-powered telephoto lens are also important to bring. And consider altitude sickness pills to take full advantage of your time in the highlands of Ecuador. Five stars.

      We enjoyed the market and because we went on a Saturday, there were so many things to see! Our guide, Alijandro was fantastic! He helped customize the day so that we had more time at the market and still enjoyed some short hikes to nearby lakes and waterfalls.

      Our guide was WONDERFUL!!! He was so kind and educational. He did not hurry us as he wanted us to enjoy and get the most from the trip. In addition, CarPEdiem agency was a joy to work with. I would HIGHLY recommend them and our guide for every english speaking person looking for fun things to do when in Ecuador.

      Great day, fun time. Alex is a knowledgeable and charming guide. He was kind to adjust the tour to our physical limitations and we felt like we did not have to miss anything.
