Cotopaxi National Park & Quilotoa Full-Day Tour
- Small group
- Pickup available
- Duration: 12 hours
Despite the clouds and fog obscuring the most spectacular views of Cotopaxi and Quilotoa, we had a delightful day. Our guide was still fairly new at it, but he did a good job of explaining everything in both Spanish and English, and the driver made extra stops when a view was special so that we could get out and see it better. The meal stops were enjoyable. It was a long day but worth it! My main suggestion to the company is to remove the wrap on the bus, which made it very difficult to see the views out of the windows, which was one of the primary elements of this trip. The windows should not be wrapped on a sightseeing bus.
Wonderful experience from start to finish. Stopped at a nice ranch for breakfast and lunch with a beautiful view of Cotopaxi. Also stopped at at natural history museum for coca tea which is supposed to help with altitude illness (it was delicious and gave me a nice energy boost). Unfortunately, the hike was very cloudy and we didn't get a chance to see cotopaxi, but those of us that were not suffering from altitude illness got to trek up to the glacier. Very knowledgable staff that made the experience fun!
Fun, exciting, strenuous day led by Daniel together with Paulina and Irene (the local guides at Cotopaxi) and Ivan (driver, omg, how did he manage on some of the roads!). Well organized, informative, exciting, memories for a lifetime. Food good, bus very nice, friendly and supportive (dang, that walk up..) Thank you!!
This was such an amazing tour! David was amazing and took care of every need. He was an excellent driver and tour guide and I adore his family. He made the trip very memorable. Book this tour! It was amazing!
Is was the highlight of my trip. Raul and Andres were punctual and very knowledgeable about every aspect of the trip. Andres was a great teacher and obviously loves what he does. He is an ideal guide.
