Great trip. Just the right amount of adventure. Cotopaxi hike/bike tour was a highlight of our Ecuador trip. Stuie was an amazing tour guide. Highly recommend!
This tour was incredible, from start to finish. The view of the mountain was breathtaking. At the end, bicycling down the road was the icing on the cake. Totally recommended.
The climb to base camp, while difficult at that elevation, was spectacular. Our tour guide was so helpful and gave us lots of local insights. Great tour!
This is a must do when you're visiting Quito.We had the best day with Ecuatraveling and especially with our guide “Mono". At any time he had everything under controll even tho we know that our group was not an easy one. At the end of the day we all are tired but the beautiful hike to the Glacier and the very fun Downhill part are definitely worth it. We never felt rushed or pushed into doing anything we didnt want and overall was a great trip and we would highly recommend this specific tour with our guide Victor. :) Anna, Alina and Tanja
We booked a bike tour in the Cotopaxi National Park for 5 people, including one pregnant. It was an uncomplicated communication with Pablo. On the day of the tour, Christian and his father Jorge were punctual and could adapt the tour to cover all our expectations and limitations. They were really friendly and empathic. The van was comfortable and the whole trip was enjoyable. Jorge was a good company to the pregnant and patient during our bike tour. After the trail to the Refugio Jose Rivas, we started a bike tour through hidden trails for one hour, stopping for lunch with an amazing view to the Cotopaxi. They provided us a delicious sandwich and soft drinks, along with equipments and bikes for the bike tour. The experience was amazing. We had a really great time and definitely recommend them.
Unser Gruppe hatte viel Spaß bei dem Erlebnis! Christian und sein Vater Jorge haben uns pünktlich abgeholt, und direkt zum Naturpark gefahren. Den Weg zum Refúgio Jose Rivas ist super spannend, und der anschließende Bike Tour durch unmarkierten Tracks zwischen die Vulkanen ist wunderschön. Zusätzlich zu der super Tour, die Guides sind super sympathisch und haben uns wertvollen Tipps für den Trip gegeben.
I did a two day tour of Cotopaxi and Quilitoa, and it was everything I hoped it would be. English guides, comfortable transportation, good food and solid overnight lodging. Everything a guided excursion should be!
This tour was very professional and well organized, it was clear Victor and Alex knew what they were doing. Both of them were really open and helpful, it felt like we were relating to them more as friends than typical tour guides. Victor did a good job emphasizing that we are all a team and needed to look out for each other and he practiced what he preached in that regard. He did a great job catering the experience to all physical abilities so don’t be intimidated by this experience if you aren’t in the best shape or are older. We would highly recommend this tour with Victor and Alex!
Hermoso recorrido en bicicleta desde el acceso norte del parque nacional Cotopaxi, llegando a la laguna Santo Domingo y regresando por el Manantial.
This was the worst tour that I have ever done. You hike uphill for hours and they don't even give you one minute at the end of the hike to take pictures you just had straight back. it was terrible. The staff just seemed in a hurry to get home. They did not give you any time to enjoy the sights, If you like to take pictures this is not the tour for you. The pictures on their website are misleading. When I got to the top of the volcano where the glacier was the guy wanted to go straight back down I said you're not even going to let us have a walk around in a look because we are here. He said no if you want to do that you need to hire a private tour. Really unprofessional they seem to hate their job and just want to get home.
