Wow, was this fantastic. From the pickup to the return. Daunte Garcia our tour guide has so much local and historical knowledge to give you. We traveled to the Antitank Volcank, but due to the active nature of the volcano we saw it from a distance and viewed the glaciers on the top of the volcano. Our day was rain, sun, cool and exciting. We hiked at 12,300 feet along the Laguna of the National Pqrk. This was so exciting as we watched a local fisherman catch trout, and saw many highland rabbits. Along our tour we saw Andean Condors, and so many species of birds that I ant remember all there names.
After the National Park we went to a local restaurant for a 100 local lunch. We were served local trout, local potaoes, and local vegetables. The juice was Baca, and was fabulous. Also served was soup and a baked local apple for dessert. Worth every penny of he tour cost.
At the restaurant there are so many types of hummingbirds that we had never seen before. You will learn love it. Bring a camera. So many beautiful sights and birds to photo3.
On the rise back to Quito we saw the mining of volcanic rocks from the explosion of 300 years ago being used for roads and home construction. We had rain, cool weater, sun, and bumpy roads so be ready.
Be sure to wear hi,ignore shows and bring clothing to layer for the temperature.
My wife and I are volunteers for the National Park Service in the US and therefore had no problem with he activities. Just each your breakfast and breath easy.
Please take this tour, you will love it.
