Amazing Andes Experience!

We had a great tour in December 2021 booked with Rebecca Adventure Travel. Although we were unlucky with the weather on the first day (Cotopaxi) we had an amazing overnight stay in hysteria Papagayo near Quito and an amazing day at the Quilotoa crater lake. All transportation and meals were as described and the communication before and during booking was excellent. Highly recommended!
Cotopaxi and Quilotoa are both a MUST SEE

I traveled to Ecuador this past month and enjoyed 3 separate tours through Rebecca Travel Adventures - not listed here as the tours were booked separately. The group communicated with me regularly to ensure everything was up to date - timely, and I was going where I needed to be going. They arranged for drivers for me to and from the different locations, (not tour buses!!), and arranged guides for each hike. I took in Quilotoa, El Altar, and Cotopaxi!! All must see. It was me and my guide the entire time. They took the time to make sure my trip was planned to my exact specifications. I would highly recommend them to help you in planning your trip!
Great Cotopaxi trip

Fantastic trip to Cotopaxi. Our guide, Santiago, was very accommodating, stopping the van at just the right spot to take advantage of clearing skies for photos. Also, the overnight at Hosteria Papagayo was a delightful surprise, with a cozy cottage and Raul lighting a fire in the stove for us. Highly recommend, especially the Cotopaxi portion of the tour.
awesome natural places

We really enjoyed the Cotopaxi tour. The meeting place was disorganized since the restaurant we were supposed to meet at wasn't open at the assigned time and the guide wasn't there on time either... but once everything got going the first day was a great tour. The park and mountain are amazing and well worth seeing. The climbing was very strenuous but rewarding (total climb was 1800 ft, but at an altitude of 16,000 ft that's substantial). I'm an avid mountain biker and still I'd say the bike part of the tour was not really worthwhile and is really only safe for people with mountain bike experience. Several people crashed but nobody was injured. It was on a loose washboard gravel road which is pretty easy to wipe out on. The overnight lodging at Papagayo was excellent, I'd like to stay there again. The second day of the tour again the logistics were not thought through. The tour vehicle that picked us up was nice but there was no place for luggage. We ended up tying it the roof wrapped in garbage bags in case of rain, and luckily it didn't rain, but this could have been a big problem. The organized should remember that people going on a two day tour will have luggage and there needs to be somewhere inside the vehicle to put it. The second day of the tour to Quilotoa was also great once it got going. In my opinion not as impressive as Cotopaxi. Also there are many hours of driving involved but the scenery is very interesting.
Highly recommended. Packed with...
