This tour exceeded my expectations. I normally organize everything myself when I go on trips, but I figured it'd be interesting to give a tour a try and I'm quite glad I did. I met some incredible people and had some opportunities I'm not sure I would have otherwise had. The food was pretty good, the optional ME TIME activities were great and well worth the price (aside from the beer tour in Quito). I had no idea I would have much fun as I did. The trip manager, Mayra, was great. Great energy and seemed really knowledgable about the place, which definitely added to the experience!
