What Our Clients Say

RonnieSimon, USA

We were so lucky with the weather which gave perfect views of Cotopaxi Volcano – truly stunning! Much of the riding was downhill or flat but this was still a challenging but fun day.

Greg & Kim Clarke, UK

I do quite a lot of biking back home in UK and I would rate this trip right up with the best all-round days I have done! It was mighty cold up there so I was glad we went prepared. The altitude was a challenge that´s for sure. At the end of the day we are very satisfied customers!
