This was a great way to see parts of Ecuador. We left at 11:30 and got back close to 5. It can get cool so dress in layers. The staff gives some good insight into the region.

We caught a very slow train out of Quito, taking over an hour to get out of the very deprived and depressing townships, then into the country with views of the avenue of volcanoes, which were glorious. Trip included an enjoyable lunch and walk overlooking...More

Hi Phil I would like to buy tickets for la nariz del diablo for March 2017. Unfortunately i can't get the online booking to work and my emails go unanswered. This train trip really dictates how we approach our travel in the area. Was wondering if could advise on how to reserve seats. We want to travel on a Sunday. Many thanks.
