Great tour & definitely recommend!! :)


Great and excellent tour guide. Amazing experience having Miguel Ángel as a tour guide & Santiago as a driver. Both were polite, friendly and very informative. I booked the Cotopaxi & Baños tour. They made me feel safe from the start of the tour and to the end of the tour since I was solo traveling. If you’re looking for a tour guide ask for them they’re the best!!

Wonderful Experience To See A Lot In One Day

This was my first trip to Ecuador, and I was trying to see some meaningful locations at an expedited rate. After visiting both Cotopaxi and Banos in the same day, I know I want to return and see both for a longer period of time and am better equipped to know how to prepare. Pedro Simon was incredibly friendly and knowledgeable from the moment he met me on time at the hotel. He takes his profession seriously and enjoys it at the same time. Highly recommended.

Cotopaxi and Baños


I had a full day tour to Cotopaxi and Baños with Miguel (guide) and Juan Carlos (our driver). They were excellent. They made me feel very secure as a solo traveler on what turned out to be a private tour. The experience was unsurpassed. Miguel is exceptionally knowledgeable and informative. Juan Carlos bought us ice cream. We tried local food and candy. They were attentive and happy to take photos. I highly recommend touring with them! A fantastic day!
