We didn’t do any extravagant hiking but was beautiful. The hummingbirds were beyond compare-unlike anything we’ve ever seen.

Diego is a VERY engaging and knowledgeable guide. He explained many things about living in Equador, its people, schools, housing, immigration issues and the topography of the country. It gave us a knowledge base to ask questions of other guides. It’s a LONG trip (2.5-3 hours)

I had a group tour booked, but the company called the night before to let me know there was no group availability, and to offer me other options. I chose to splurge on the private tour and I'm glad I did. Raoul, my personal driver and guide, was excellent company, and very

If you want to see any birds other than hummingbirds in someone's backyard, take a crack of dawn birder tour. Lesson learned for me. Our guide was very nice and competent but it was honestly a long van ride and a brutal hike to a single waterfall that wasn't spectacular.

Response from Dante G, Propietario at Mindo Cloud Forest, Hummingbirds Sanctuary & Waterfalls/Full-Day from Quito
Responded 15 May 2018
Dear Customer, Thanks for your comment. It will help other visitors to know more about the activities and what we do and service. Mindo Cloud Forest is know because of the birds. Everybody knows that. If visitors want to see birds it must start around 6:00 am in the morning in some particular areas of the reserve in Mindo. It means that we must depart from Quito at 4:00 am ( Visitors should send us a special request, and must pay extra $50,00 for the birding guide) Our small groups departure is around 8.00 from Quito. Mindo offers several options of activities like Zip Line, tubbing, butterflies, hummingbirds, chocolate tour, orchids, waterfalls etc... because of the distance ( 2 hours away from Quito) we have time to do only 3 or maximun 4 activities in a day. Restaurants: we suggest 2 options. Quetzal which cost average is $8 - $15,00 American dollars each dish or a cheaper one from $5 - $8,00 dollars ( El Chef) but finally customers take the decision. Our tours are small group tours from 2 - 12 passengers but most of the time is less than 12 pax. Waterfalls in Mindo. it takes only 25 minutes each way ( Nambillo Waterfall) you took that day. We ussually do this hike because of the time. Note: If customers go to Mindo trying to find the 600 species of birds in a day is imposible!! You must send a special request to leave from Quito at 4:00 am in a Private tour!!! In a birding tour we can see from 30 to 70 species of birds!! Probably is a good idea take 2 days trip in Mindo to enjoy more from this reserve. Many thanks Regards
