What people are saying about Pichincha

Very informative and interesting tour close to Quito

After some initial confusion with the tour operator (Latin Adventures) over pick up times the tour went ahead as planned and was a great experience. Our guide spoke excellent English (which was great as our Spanish is very limited) and was very knowledgeable about the site and it's surrounding area. She ensured we toured the "actual" equator line exhibition with an English speaking group and then took us to another sub exhibition to learn about chocolate making starting with the bean. This part of the tour would be particularly interesting for those interested in earth sciences though the group guide's gory description of how indigenous head hunters cleaned and displayed their victims heads could have be more tastefully done. She then escorted us around the "original" equator line park, explained the significance of various statues before accompanying us into the monument itself to help us understand the various displays contained within it. A great afternoon out 1hr from Quito.

Great tour in beautiful surroundings with lots to do

This is a great tour with something for everyone. There were 6 in our group, 4 x "30 somethings" and my friend and I at 60+ 1st stop was a Hummingbird sanctuary where we got "up close and personal" with these beautiful birds as they visited the feeders. Then it was into the Cloud Forest proper. The "30 somethings" opted for high octane activities like zip lining 100m above ground and repelling down a 30m waterfall (bring waterproof bag, towel, swimsuits, wet shoes & a change of clothes inc. footwear) My friend and I opted for the lower intensity activities. A 3 minute cable car ride across a 500m deep ravine accessed a 2 mile hike along well maintained trails through the cloud forest and across a roaring torrent beside a 15m high waterfall, before continuing on to a butterfly farm and orchid nursery to admire the beauty of the insects and plants. The guide and driver were really knowledgeable and helpful and did a great job accommodating our very varied interests and abilities.

A fabulous experience at a great price + awesome customer service!

I booked this tour for my first day in Quito (might want to acclimate to the altitude at least a day first). I could only go that day. I have had previous altitude issues so I purchased oxygen canisters in advance. I cannot say enough about what a great Guide Fernando was and Nixon was a great driver too. We picked up Paulina as a park Guide and she led us up the zig-zag route to the refuge lodge. The change in elevation from there is about 1200 ft and the route is just less than a mile. Fernando stayed right with me encouraging me and assuring me I could do it. I did, but his encouragement made the difference. We saw a llama wandering around, wild horses and a variety of bird life. Take this trip- it was awesome!!

Cotopaxi National Park Full-Day Tour from Quito Reviewed by Stephanie, 03/07/2018

Amazing experience full of variety with fun and helpful guides.

This experience is so fun with many options to choose from, tons of flexibility, and an expert guide. Diego, Andrea, and Gabriel were an incredible guide team. Zip-lining gave us incredible views and we got to do way more routes than we anticipated for such a good price. Then we did a coffee agricultural tour that involved everything from picking the coffee cherry and processing it all the way to drinking it fresh. We got to do a chair lift with more amazing views and ended at a very nice restaurant that also sold tasty Mindo chocolate. Diego was very knowledgeable and accommodating, Andrea captured all our best moments, and Gabriel got us everywhere very safely. Would highly recommend, very good deal.

great, affordable trip with knowledgeable tour guide

Tour guide was very knowledgeable and interesting. The tour around at the equator was equally enjoyable and well worth the extra $4. The trolley dropped us at the hotel we were staying at instead of making us walk from the Holiday Inn which was supper awesome too.
