Accompanied by a specialized guide, we will learn about the solar sun, the astronomy of the ancestors and The Incas. We will visit the Fábrica de Bizcochos (Local Bread Factory) where we will learn how to prepare it and will taste this typical bread of the province.

Later on the route, we will stop at Lake San Pablo panoramic viewing point, where we will be able to take some pictures. After arriving to Otavalo, we will do some shopping in Plaza de los Ponchos (Poncho’s Square) where we will find various handcrafts and typical fabrics hand-made by the indigenous people.

We will have lunch in any of the typical restaurants recommended by our guide. Then we can choose to visit one of these 3 places: La Casa de los Instrumentos (The House of the Instruments) or the Indigenous Fabrics Gallery where we will learn about the hand-made fabric techniques and how to produce natural colors or, if you are a quality leather-lover, we can visit Cotacachi – The city of Leather.

Patricio collected me from the airport, put me up in his guest house and transported me to La Hesperia nature reserve. He and his family could not have been more charming, welcoming and helpful. Nothing is too much trouble and I thoroughly recommend his services to anyone who needs any of his services.

Patricio took me to Antisana bird watching. His personable nature and willingness to go the extra mile to make the trip memorable was clear throughout the day. Although Patricio is not a birder he has great knowledge of the area, birds and a surprising number of their calls. Excellent trip with plenty of birds from Andean Condor to many Hummingbirds

Ismael was a fantastic guide for this trip to the Mindo Cloud Forest. He is very knowledgeable and personable. I had him as a guide earlier in the week and booked this trip because of his abilities as a guide. He and Patricio worked it out for me and were able to deliver me to a different hotel at the end of the day in time to meet up with my next tour group. I highly recommend Ecuador A Color for any tour you wish to take.

A fabulous experience! We stayed in Quito for a couple of days and wanted to use one of those days to get out of the city to explore the cloud forest. I am so glad we found Pato who put a wonderful tour together for us based on our preferences. He took us bird watching to a place with an amazing variety of wild birds incl. tucans and many different hummingbirds. From there we saw a butterfly sanctuary with the opportunity to get those butterflies to sit on our finger or hand. All of this gave an impressive reflection of the diversity of flora and fauna in this part of Ecuador. Next was a lunch at an amazing, a little bit tugged away restaurant. I literally hadn’t had that good of a trout in a long time. Finally, Pato took us on a cable car ride across a valley to reach some stunning waterfalls. What a day! Frankly, it felt less of a guided tour, but rather than a day spent with a good friend who made it a special experience in every way. I highly recommend Pato.
