Recommendation for Wilson Andrade, guide

Wilson works with a privately owned tour business in Quito that was recommended by friends here in Cuenca. The owner is Fausto and was our excellent driver. His son Israel is also a guide and was not available, thus Wilson escorted us for two days and we couldn't have been more pleased. Our hotel, Casa Yaruqui was about 45 mins from Quito and only about 15 mins from the Quito airport. Fausto and Wilson picked us up on Saturday and took us to the long-dormant volcano Puluahua where people live and farm inside the massive crater. It is also a hiking, camping, fishing destination. Then on to Equator Park and a tour of Old Town Quito. On Sunday they took us to Cotopaxi and a walk around the lagoon. Cotopaxi was mostly in cloud cover so we went on to Quilotoa, stopping at the home of an artisan in Tigua. Quilotoa was amazing and on our way back to Quito the sky cleared in all directions and we had spectacular views of Cotopaxi and the Twin Peaks until the gorgeous sunset faded. Each day we stopped for a delicious lunch. Wilson was very informative and took a lot of care that we all had a great time and were well cared for. Fausto was a very safe driver. We would book with these guys again in a heartbeat. Wilson said he will guide just about anywhere in Ecuador.
