We had an amazing day with Myriam! She was sooo knowledgeable about the area, history, economy, biology and pretty much everything we had questions. She made the trip super amazing. When we got to the Hacienda everyone was so welcoming. The horses were very well trained and we had an incredible ride with Miguel. Then we hiked around Sendero with Myriam and she told us all about the birds and plants and their medicinal attributes. We learned so much and had a blast. She was also and amazing photographer. Can’t recommend the experience enough!

This was a great way to spend the day away from Quito. The park scenery is great, and the volcano a bit challenging depending on acclimitizarion. We had good conversation and a relaxing day.
Top shelf tour experience - Cotopaxi

After finding the Cotopaxi tour online I emailed to ask if it was possible to add on a special request. Luis was quick in getting back to me with the answer and the necessary details. Quick and easy. Being picked up near my hotel the morning of the tour was great. Luis's English is great, not just with basic communication but he was easy to chat with and had a wonderful sense of humor which made the day and adventure, educational and just plain fun. He went the extra mile in every way. I can't say enough about what a fantastic experience the whole day was.
Equatorial snow, llamas, high life

Lovely to see the mountain up close even on a cloudy day
