We made it!
Jun. 2021 • Family
What a fantastic day exploring the beautiful Cotopaxi area. Our tour guide and bus driver made our day spectacular, with their kindness and knowledge about hiking Cotopaxi. We were all excited we accomplished the hike to 16,000ft. The lunch and teas along our journey were great too. It will be an adventure we will talk about for years to come.

Magical place
Really cool tour with a lovely guide. He helped us manage the altitude well and did not cut us short when we knew we had more energy to keep going. We were lucky with the weather.

The best part of the experience was definitely the amazing challenge of getting to the refuge. It wasn't easy but with the help of our awesome guides, things felt a lot better!

Cotopaxi, the majesty of Ecuador
Dec. 2020
Cotopaxi is one of my favorite places in Ecuador. This time we decided to go with the Quito Tour Bus and we could not be happier. David is an awesome tour guide and he told us many interesting stories during the trip. We had the opportunity to visit the Limpiopungo lagoon so we can start to adapt our bodies for the adventure that would come. Then we went to the Centro de Interpretacion and finally, we climbed up to the first refuge in the Cotopaxi. It's such a heartbreaking adventure but it's all worth it. I highly recommend this tour.

High expectations, average experience
Jan. 2021
This was an amazing experience and our guide, Paulina, was very informative and knew everything there was to know about Cotopaxi National Park. However, I was slightly disappointed in this experience. Our tour guide met us at and left us at Cotopaxi and didn't travel back to Quito with us. Not a big deal, but I requested an English tour and although he was great, our tour bus driver did not speak English, and the drive to and from Quito was about as long as the hike total. Also, the tour website states an included breakfast and lunch, which turned out to be false. Snacks were provided, but that was it. I felt like I paid $80 for a few hours of hiking, something that would have costed a fraction of the price if I went by myself. The hike was great however, but I probably wouldn't recommend it to a friend.

Dear Alexandria, is good to know about your experience with us. Paulina is one of the best local guides that we have on our team, and we are very proud of her job and her effort to make every passenger feel happy. Athough our bus driver didn't speak english, the whole itinerary was successfully completed. If there was any other detail that didn't exeed your expectations, we apologise by advance, and you can be sure that your comments will help us to improve on our new logistics due to covid on Tourism.

Great experience
Feb. 2020
Get used to the fact, that everyone in Ecuador is 10m late.

The trip was nice, it was very cloudy, we didn't so anything, but that's pretty normal. And the sun would be very strong.
The short walk was very hard, but you feel just great when you're at the top.
15 people, you can stay in the bus if you're too weak, and there's enough food.

Amazing tour
The tour was incredible! The guides Andrea and Sonia were great. They’re always willing to help you when you are having some troubles either going up or down the volcano, the food was also great and the driver Nixon as well! As well all the information provided was very interesting and fun!

Cotopaxi day trip
We had a great day. The small group (~14) was pleasant and manageable. Our guide, Erica, was informative and did a great job. Not only did we learn a lot from her commentary, she also helped keep the group's energy up during the long day. Highly recommend this adventure.

Great day trip from Quito
Feb. 2020
Trip included ecuadorian type breakfast and lunch at a local restaurant in the countryside (there was a llama there too!). Cotopaxi was in the clouds, but the approach provided great views. Once at the parking lot, the hike to the Refuge was started in fog, high winds, some rain, some snow, cold-ish. Tough climb due to weather but especially the altitude. Half the group quickly quit and waited (2+ hours) on the bus. Climb was achievable though (we're age 60) and it was satisfying to reach the Refuge at about 16,000 feet. Further down we got the bikes out and rode down - almost no pedaling required, just braking. Unpaved road could be bumpy, but the biking was fun.
