If you are looking for a more private alternative to the bus, and you are a minimum of two passengers, AndesTransit offers door-to-door shuttle service direct from your hotel in Quito to popular destinations like Baños and Otavalo. Return service is optional.
This is not a tour service, but you can order a tour guide service separately if desired.

The shuttle can pick you up and take you directly to the scheduled destination. With much fewer passengers than a bus, the shuttle can operate within a more rapid time frame.
Even though the price per passenger is higher, when you take the bus, you have to first take a taxi to the bus terminal, which is $15 on top of your bus ticket price. Plus, the shuttle provides you free snacks!
No bus stations, no running around finding the gate, and far less paperwork. If you want to focus on the scenery instead of chasing down your transportation, the shuttle is right for you.
The shuttle is kept extra clean and uncluttered, and you are free of interruptions, movies and music. Shuttle drivers drive safely and seriously, and make no stops that you don't want.
-Tour guide: $60 per shuttle and per day (English or Spanish speaking)
-Round trip (if not included in price table): 75% of one way fare.
If you are staying overnight at your destination, 150% of your one way fare.
-Snacks on board are free!
