Diego was a marvelous guide. Due to COVID, not many tourists are about and you'll often find you're the only ones booked on a tour on most days. In my case I was solo but wanted to visit Quilotoa, but unfortunately the tour will only run with a minimum of two people.

The trip to the Quilotoa lagoon was amazing. The ride is a little bit long (approximately 3 hours from Quito) and gets quite curvy, but well worth it. It was only me and another couple on the tour that day. We briefly stopped at the house of an indigenous family. They were very
