Very personable and passionate guide paired with a skilled driver. Even with cloudy weather it was a powerful experience on the volcanic slopes and surrounding grassland

Great day at a beautiful national park!

An absolutely fantastic day at Cotopaxi National Park, highlighted by a short, but difficult climb from a parking lot to a refuge at the edge of the Cotopaxi glacier at 16,000'. Our guide, Oscar, was amazing--knowledgeable, helpful, a great companion, and just a pleasure to be around. If you are lucky enough to have Oscar as your guide you will undoubtedly have a great day. The included lunch at a local restaurant outside of Quito was also outstanding.

This tour is private. The guide was awesome. He was very knowledgeable and laid back, he wanted us to have the best time. First we stopped outside of town to get a great picture with Cotopaxi. When we arrived at the park entrance We got coca tea ($1.50/cup) to help with altitude. There are also shops here where you can buy alpaca sweaters, gloves and hats. Restrooms cost 10 cents for men and 25 cents for women. Then we drove up to 14,763 feet and parked. At this point we had the option to hike up to 15,950 feet. The tour guide didn’t discourage us as other reviewers have stated. He actually encouraged us to try if we wanted too. We walked across the parking lot to the trailhead but we were already out of breath due to the altitude so we decided against this hike. We got a lot of good pictures here and stayed here for several minutes before descending back to 12,467 feet to a beautiful lake where we hiked on a relatively flat trail for 2 miles. We seen numerous birds and wild flowers. We also tolerated walking at this elevation much better. After leaving the lake we stopped for a quick restroom break where there was also a small shop and educational exhibit of everything we had just seen. Next we went to lunch at a very cool restaurant with a rustic western theme. Then back to the hotel. Bring warm clothes, it is cold on Cotopaxi.

Great visit to a lovely city

We booked this full-day tour thinking it would be our only outing in Quito. Myriam picked us up promptly at our hotel and we headed out to the National Park. Myriam was interesting and informative along the way. As we reached the volcano, it was clear the weather wasn’t going to co-operate, but Myriam had other options for us so as to make for a really enjoyable day. In fact, we so enjoyed our time with her, we booked her for a half-day city tour the next day that was stupendous. As a result of her expertise, we couldn’t have asked for a better time during our brief visit to Quito.

Amazing hike! Make sure you bring or buy water at the stops. Food and water is not included. Unforgettable time

Thank you for your comment. Only on Sunday in small group tours, lunch is not included. The rest of the week in small groups or private tours, menu lunch is included. You took a Sunday small group tour with us. It helps to clarify this tour option. Thank you again.

Daniel, our guide, was great. Very knowledgeable. He discussed things on the way to Cotopaxi, and was able to answer all of our questions. He stopped whenever we wanted to take pictures and made this a very pleasurable experience.

Cotopaxi Volano

Daniel was an excellent tour guide. He picked us up from our hotel and drove us around Quito then out to the Cotopaxi Volcano. He was so knowledgeable about the volcano and the wildlife we got to see (llamas, foxes, beautiful birds, wild horses, etc). We hiked up to the shelter and enjoyed some hot chocolate and the views. We hiked back down then went to see the lagoon close by. Then finished the day with a traditional Ecuadorian lunch. What a fun and rewarding day. Thank you Daniel for the great day.
