The ascend is a bit tough, so that it is recommended to go up on a mule for people who do not count with a good physical condition (You can rent a mule to people of community directly $10 per person aprox. After your lunch break, we will head back by an artisan workshop in Tigua, famous for its picturesque paintings.

All about it

This was our second tour with this company. We did one previously with Irene to Cotopaxi and hoped to get her on a second tour to quilotoa. When we saw her in the morning, we were so excited because she is fun! The best tour guide ever. Of the 34 countries I travelled to I have done tours in 20 countries and without a doubt Irene has been the best tour guide by far!
She is funny, knowledgeable, and overall gets everyone in the mood despite being early (and I’m not a morning person). She shows you how to make the best of the experience. And she tells you exactly what to expect.

10/10 would recommend.
Fun and authentic Ecuador adventure, led by passionate tour guide

I am normally not a fan of group tours, but this tour / company may have changed my mind.

Tour guide: 5/5
I had the pleasure to have Irene, a top rated guide, lead my experience. She is hilarious and truly passionate about sharing the beauty of her country and culture with everyone. There was never a dull moment during our day trip and she made the long drive between destinations feel quick and effortless.

Itinerary: 5/5
The tour itinerary was well planned. We had enough time to take pictures at numerous points, rest, shop, and enjoy the food.

Location: 5/5
They say pictures are worth a thousand words, so I'll let my photos do most of the talking here.

Stunning Crater Lake

The brochure claims: "Visits to two craft workshops known for colorful pictures and pottery." This actually means a roadside small shop to purchase items.

Crater Lake is beautiful and the drive there was wonderfully scenic. Overall, I would recommend taking this trip.
