Our visit to Cotopaxi National Park and the Quilotoa creator lake was a wonderful introduction to the natural wonders and culture of Ecuador. Roberto, our guide, was knowledgeable and informative, friendly and upbeat. It was along day on the bus, but Robertos running commentaries gave us many insights into the environments that we encountered, as well as insights into the indigenous communities of the Central highlands. We would highly recommend this trip to others.

A great day with a very fun and informed guide, Ivan from Gray Line. The tour to Cotopaxi was breathtaking, Clouds disappearing from Cotopaxi Volcano, the walk out to the marshland, a lunch, visiting the Canon Del Rio and The Laguna Verde Quilotoa. Full of information I returned to my Hotel with an overload of information. A wonderful day with a great guide.
A day not to be missed. Thank you Ivan!
We saw both Cotopaxi and Quilotoa, and we even saw a condor flying above. We got a good feel for the countryside including vertical farming and rural life. The guide was professional and had so much information to share! It was a fun day, and I learned a lot.
A once in a lifetime experience that was very very well managed by the tour operators
From the moment we were picked up to the moment we were dropped off, this was a magnificent trip. Well organized and led by the most enthusiastic of guides, Alfonso, we were also blessed with magnificent weather which allowed us to see Cotapaxi in all its splendor. The train ride was fun, the walk around the lake allowed for a full appreciation of the environment and the final stop at the hacienda put the icing on the cake. Thank you.
The tour guide was excellent, with so much knowledge, very accommodating to everyone i.e. those who spoke Spanish and English, and just really nice. This was a great tour and I would certainly book again with this company.
Fantastic walking tour of Cotopaxi with a wonderful train trip from t
He Quito railway station.
What a perfect day to see so much- the weather was clear- the park and volcano is magnificent and our guide and driver were top notch! Lunch and tour at the Hacienda was so unique ( and delicious!). Our guide and Driver were so kind, knowledgeable and have a great sense of humor! Highly recommend - Ecuador is beautiful and so are it's lovely residents. Thank you for a unforgettable day!

A very fun day with an excellent guide! We especially enjoyed the hike on Cotopaxi, even if it was somewhat cloud covered at the time. We got luck later in the day and had a fabulous look at the entire volcano. Lunch at the hacienda was delicious.
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!
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.
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 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)!

Excellent tour. There's no way I could have made it to the Cotopaxi Volcano without the tour.
Great to see both Cotopaxi and Quilatoa in one day. Beware - long day. Don't make plans for that night you may be back later than expected and tired! Great guide - very informative.
Ivan is an outstanding tour guide. Knowledgeable, bilingual. very sociable and also respectful of each guest's different needs for attention.
