This trip is a packed day of adventure from Quito. Our tour guild "Alex" provided rich history, stories and legends during our time on the bus between destinations. The short stops along the way to Quilotoa were unforgettable and made the drive pass quickly. Quilotoa is an absolutely outstanding view and great exercise if you choose to descend to the bottom and hike back up. The hike up is no joke even if you are in shape, took 1 hour on foot with the option of horses for $10. Temperature varies from moment to moment - recommend layers, rain coat and sun protection. Trail is soft dirt/dust and air gets very dusty at times, hiked in running shoes that got dirty but were OK. Bring some change for bathroom fees (50c). The included lunch at a restaurant in Quilotoa was delicious. Overall this trip was perfectly run and provided a variety of experiences in one short day. Thank you Alex for a fabulous trip!! Great trip for a great price. 10/10 would recommend.
An Awsome tour and highly recommended !! Our tour guide Pedro an Patrico were amazing. They were courteous and professional. The stop to Indian market was so entertaining just to walk around and the lake was gorgeous !! Be prepared to walk a lot and be drained by the end of the trip but its worth it !!
Loved this tour! The walk down to the crater is fun but very challenging on the way up even for the fittest of people. Definitely do this tour. I recommend hiking shoes or boots for the extra foot grip.
Breathtakingly beautiful! If you plan to walk down to the Laguna make sure you are physically fit and have acclimated to the climate. Definitely worth the trip for the view even if you don't hike down to the bottom. Mules are available for the trip back up for 10. Make sure you request a mule not a horse. Mules are more surefooted.
