Amazing day with great Guide :)

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. :)

Amazing experience at Cotopaxi

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.
Solid tour!

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!
Nature, hiking & good vibes

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!
Perfect Worry Free Daytrip

My wife and I did the Cotopaxi Hike and Bike tour and our guide Ivan and driver were both great! They were prompt with picking us up in the morning, were very clear and knowledgeable about where we were going, the area, and all the various questions we had. Ivan was particularly just a sweet and friendly guy.

We never felt rushed or pushed into doing anything we didnt want and overall was a great trip and would highly recommend this company and this specific tour!
