What Our Clients Say

Johannes Eggenberger, Switzerland

A lot of action was included but it was well-paced so we never felt exhausted. Cotopaxi was of course the highlight and we were very pleased that 75% of our group made the peak thanks to the guides!

Mary Bride, USA

I was exhausted by the end of the week, but exhilarated to have summited Cotopaxi! I suffered some minor altitude sickness one the first two days, but felt better as I got used to the heights here. I think the pace was perfect to get me ready for Cotopaxi. A well-designed itinerary
