This was a great way to start off our trip in Quito! Carolina picked us up at our hotel promptly she was an amazing bilingual guide. By the end of our day I felt like I had a local Ecuadorian friend that showed me the best of their country.
We started by driving from Quito to Cotopaxi with Carolina pointing out sites in Quito, giving us background about the city and even taking a minute to introduce us to some cool street food she thought we might like based on our conversation. She continued to give us details about the volcanos in the area. We made it to Cotopaxi and made the somewhat challenging hike. The altitude is definitely apparent. We enjoyed time at the top of the mountain where it was snowing. Our hike down was in Thundersnow and we all laughed at nature's craziness. We visited the lagoon briefly and huddled with some bikers from the rain under a shelter in the area.
Cold and wet but laughing we then enjoyed a private lunch which was delicious at a local restaurant! Carolina continued to give us tips to enjoy Quito. Overall this was truly a great guided tour. It is outdoors, you are at the mercy of the weather and altitude but it was great fun. Carolina made this tour a really wonderful experience. Worth every penny!Show More
