    This was a fantastic tour! My husband and I have traveled a lot in the past 3 years and this was definitely the best trip we have had yet! Every day was filled with adventure and somehow better than the day before. All the accommodations and food was great and a unique experience. Our guide Alirio was extremely friendly and knowledgeable. Highly recommend this trip and requesting him as your guide.

    This company did a fantastic job organizing a last minute trip for my husband and I to hike Cotopaxi and various areas inside the park. They arranged all the transportation and took care of providing all the gear. They were able to create this whole trip for us a week before we departed! Highly recommend using them!

    This was the trip of a lifetime! Everything was organized so that everyday was as good or better than the last. From hiking up volcanos to see a beautiful crater lake to hiking to basecamp below a glacier the views were amazing! We also biked down a mountain and went whitewater rafting. All the equipment and support along the way was top notch and the people that supported us treated us like family!! This was a trip I will never forget and look forward to booking another trip with them!!!

    One of the most fun trips I have taken! Cesar was an amazing, knowledgable, professional, compassionate guide who led us on adventures that showcased the real Ecudor. I cannot recommend this tour more highly for those who love adventure and culture mixed together.
