We had an absolutely amazing trip and everything was perfect.

Highlights – there were loads of highlights. We loved Quito – especially the morning we went up the Teleferico. We could see for miles over the city to snow capped volcanoes beyond. Our Ecuador guide and driver were brilliant – Miguel and Memo. They went out or their way to make sure we saw as much as possible – we wouldn’t have seen or learned as much without them. We saw humming birds, toucans, tangers and more. The hotels were all excellent. We ate in some lovely restaurants and the guides picked some lovely places to stop for food.

I hope we benefited the local communities. We enjoyed our trips to the coffee plantation and the chocolate factory and certainly brought plenty of chocolate and coffee back with us. Everything worked out perfectly. We had a totally brilliant time. I think it is all still sinking in...
