Hello, dear Karen Gracias por confiar en Polylepis Tours Ecuador y por tomarse un tiempo para escribir un comentario de su visita al Parque Nacional Cajas con el guia Edison, saludos a Jorge Regards from Polylepis Tours Ecuador Team
Amazing outdoor experience
Sara_P, Dec 2020
I had a wonderful time on this tour with Edwin. He knew so much about the local culture and nature- he was easily able to answer all of my questions! He was also very encouraging when I was trying to catch my breath during the hike. It’s definitely manageable- but if you’re from sea level like me, you will definitely be out of breath! Very beautiful tour, definitely book this!

Great outdoors adventure
Sara_P, Dec 2020
My tour guide, Edison, took me on a very beautiful hike in El Cajas. I was the only person signed up, so he let me decide what I wanted to do in the park. He has so much knowledge about the local culture and nature- I learned so much! After our 3 hour hike, we had a delicious lunch. If you're in Cuenca, you must book this tour!
Response from Host, Jan 2021

Hike through Cajas + San Luis
DANIEL_P, Dec 2020
Tour guide was a guy named, Edison who was very knowledgeable about the local flora and fauna. We took a side trip up San Luis Peak, 13' ft mountain. Very cool guide. Very beautiful scenery. Highly recommended.

Vistas Bonitas
DANIEL_P, Nov 2020
The tour was great. I took a private tour with Edison, a Cuencan local. We passed by San Luis peak, and even though it wasn't part of the tour, he let me climb up to the top (~13k feet). The polylepis forest was really surprising and beautiful. He took me off the beaten path a bit. All-in-all it was a nice little 6 hour adventure through the Cajas.
Response from Host, Nov 2020

Milton was great and attentive to our inability to climb fast due to the high altitude. The two hikes were very educational and the scenery was breathtaking.
