As the title states, this tour was phenomenal from start to finish. The day was packed with activities yet never felt rushed or exhausting. Our tour guide, Carlos, offered the tour in either English or Spanish. He was extremely friendly and knowledgeable. Overall, the tour was a great value. Hoping to use Imagine Ecuador for more tours in the future. P.S. the tilapia lunch (with local tea) was one of the best I've ever had. I am back in the States and will dearly miss the juices and teas of Ecuador.

This was the most magical and adventure filled day! We had a group of 9 people, ranging in age from 1-50, and everyone enjoyed the day. Our guide Carlos was so informative, kind, and helpful even with our one year old. We loved seeing the animals at the rehabilitation center, hiking through the rain forest and setting rubber and incense trees, and especially swimming in the waterfall! That was a one of a kind experience! Being paddled down the river at dusk in a canoe made from a single tree was adventurous and beautiful. We learned so much at the cacao farm and enjoyed making our own chocolate and hot chocolate. We couldn't believe how much was packed into our day, and are so grateful to Carlos for making it perfect for us!

Beautiful day!

We left at 10 because of a landslide but instead of sending us a message on what's app which we had already sent questions on we went all the way to the store and were told we had to wait for an hour and a half. The rest of the day was great. It would have been nice to know to take a wet bag for the hike after swimming in the rainforest. Take more than a water bottle
