Fantastic Quilotoa Experience!

Well organised tour with main attraction being the Quilotoa crater lake. Highly recommend. Depart around 7 to 7:30 AM with drive to the crater broken up by side stops to local market and indigenous family home. Easy walk down into the crater to the lakeside with a tough hike back out. One can choose to stroll along the rim trail instead. Plenty of boutique shops at the crater for local art/crafts. After gorgeous views galore, late lunch at local restaurant. Return to the city is broken up again with a stop at a scenic (picture spot) canyon. Return around 7 PM. Long day with knowledgeable and professional guide for a fantastic Quilotoa experience.
Amazing Tour!!

I did the Quilotoa tour with a stop at an Indian market and a Kichwas family home. My tour guide was Alex! What a fantastic day this was. Everything about the tour was incredible. I learned a lot from Alex, who was very informative and funny. He also helped me take pictures since I was traveling solo. Overall, great tour leader, great driver, and great experience. I highly recommend.
Amazing Trip to Quilotoa with an Awesome Guide!

My favorite part of the trip was being able to visit such a beautiful place with such an amazing tour guide, Alex, and great people! He knew so many intricacies about the mountains, the land, and everything along the way! I got to learn about the history as well as the current way native groups live. Overall this trip was amazing and well worth it!
