The tour was not as described, we were very excited to go to San Augustin del Callo Hacienda, the one listed in the tour, with all it's horses and alpacas and Cotopaxi view. Instead we were brought to some other place and wasted a bunch of time at some rose farm next door that wasn't on the itinerary. Cotopaxi was great, and so was the guide, but other than that the tour wasn't what we paid for.
I love volcanos. Cotopaxi was covered by clouds when we arrived . As we left, the cloud line lifted and we could see the peak! WOW!!! The hacienda was amazing! You have to eat lunch there! You will be sorry if you don't! Now I want to come back and hike to the top! Thanks Juan David!
Good tour but again only spent about 40 minutes at Cotopaxi National Park, would have like to spend much more time there as the weather was good for the best photos of the volcano. Hacienda and additional option of visiting a Rose growing business was superb. The guide was very knowledgable and friendly, overall a very good tour.
I was the only guest on this tour. Picked me up at a hotel a few blocks from where I was staying, rather than my hotel. Trip to the Park was worthwhile, rest of the tour was not.
Best day of all. The National Park is beautiful, the Hacienda too, and the visit of the rose factory was also awsome. Great guide with great knowledge of everything.
Loved the trip up to Cotopaxi. It all started with a fun little train ride up into the highlands outside Quito and continued on a bus up to the base of the volcano. A National Park guide provided excellent information and commentary. Lunch at the hacienda was great with a huge menu to choose from and very friendly and helpful staff.
Nothing exciting about the tour, the journey to cotapaxi was drawn out by using the old train and the lagoon in the national park was nothing to get excited about
Cotopaxi was shrouded with clouds so no great view there
Hacienda for lunch was ok and reasonable prices
Was something to do I guess!
We drove thru some beautiful country in addition to the national park. I especially enjoyed the train ride from Quito to the park. Afterwards we had a nice, relaxing lunch with music from a local group at a beautiful hacienda.
The weather was not cooperating, so we didn't see Cotopaxi, but later we were taken to very colorful village market and this was a highlight of the tour.
We had a great lunch lunch in hacienda. Driving in Ecuador seems very dangerous, but thanks good driver we survived and got back in one piece to the hotel.
I was disappointed that this tour did not visit the colourful market at Sasquisili as promised in the tour information. Other people I spoke to later had been to this market on the same day with a different tour operator. The animal only market closer to Quito we visited instead was no substitute. Visit to lake was OK.
I liked a lot. The critical point in these tours, however, tend to be: does one carry you higher than the parking area (Parquerado, 4500 m)? But in my case the weather was already a reason not to continue. The most amazing thing was that this tour existed even that I was the only participant (with a driver and with a guide)!
Great tour guide and only a small group this time.

Difficult to understand the guide's English but effort was clear in trying to share information.
Excellent tour. There's no way I could have made it to the Cotopaxi Volcano without the tour.
Great guide and driver
