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

I had such a wonderful time in Ecuador, definitely an experience I will never forget. Im really glad I included Pasachoa at the start to help with acclimatization.. it was so beautiful as well. All the info, help and assistance I received prior to booking and the actual booking of the trip was so easy it was awesome (thanks Kat). The itself trip was so well organised, the accommodation and the food was excellent. The knowledge, experience and kindness of the guides was exceptional. Ojjo and hokien the guides I had are amazing human beings, they are so good at what they do and made me feel safe at all times even when I was scared to death. The highlight of my trip is hard to pick, it would have to be illinaza cause the refuge and the climb to the summit was the most beautiful scenery I have ever seen.
