"The horses get an A+ for being nice, solid, nontemperamental mounts that were fantastically physically fit. I didn't see a single horse I would not have willingly ridden and been happy with. The entourage of helpers, both horse helpers and people helpers, were also super. Courtesy and attentiveness were the norm. The guide did a great job of communicating the information we needed without overwhelming us with too much at once. I really liked going from one hacienda to the next, and this allowed us to experience a part of Ecuador that would have been unavailable in regular international type hotels. Overall, it was a great tour, and a wonderful vacation."
