Otavalo Market Tours

My fiancé and myself are in Ecuador for about 5 days and looking to visit the Otavalo Market while we are here.

Any good recommendations of tour groups that take you there and back etc?

Happy gringo seems to be the cheapest but I'm worried about the quality of the tour as it's still $80 per person USD!

$80 is outrageous. We went by bus which cost around $10 for the two of us but it did take around 4 hours to get there and 3 to return. You would need to get a taxi or bus fro Mariscal to Carcelen and the bus from there takes a couple of hours. But we did stay a couple of nights there so it may be a bit much in one days.

For $160 I am sure there would be any number of taxi driver willing to hire themselves out for the day, wait while you wander the markets ( don't miss the animal market) and drive you back. Have a word with your Hostal who probably have a driver to recommend.
