Alejandro took us on a private day trip from Quito to the Mindo Cloud Forest in early October and it was just fantastic from beginning to end: Alejandro is professional, punctual, friendly, a wealth of information, speaks perfect English and was a joy to be with all day. The actual tour to Mindo was organised perfectly and was tailored to our wants/needs - he was flexible and the day was wonderfully diverse, from a walk to a waterfall to a chocolate museum, hummingbirds, orchids and butterflies, to a gorgeous lunch spot and even a stop on the equatorial museum on the way home. I cannot recommend Alejandro or this tour highly enough!
