It was a great trip. The weather was good to us and we had fantastic views from most of the summits.
A fantastic experience that I would happily recommend to anyone interested and has left me with a taste for more.

It has been the perfect trip. The accommodations were really nice excluding Banos (but I think that the town has not much more to offer).Your partner volcano climbing agency has provided a really outstanding service (precise,accurate,friendly) thanks to Rami and Wil the climbing guides (a real nice guy).On our side we have been very happy to achieve a 100% success rate in our climbing activity despite despite some very nasty weather on Cotopaxi. At the final end I have to make you my best compliments for the excellent service you provided us.Talk you soon

Safe and sound back in the UK, sadly back at work but it was a great trip. The weather was good to us and we had fantastic views from most of the summits. A fantastic experience that I would happily recommend to anyone interested and has left me with a taste for more. We were also lucky to catch the end of Carnival with the end of our trip which was an unsuspected bonus! I would like to make a special mention of our guide Wilson, who did a great job of looking after us and keeping us entertained. He really went out of his way to make sure that we had everything we could want and again would recommend his skills, experience and company to anyone interested in walking in Ecuador. Many thanks
