Full-Day Cajas National Park Tour from Cuenca, Ecuador
"We very much enjoyed our full-day tour of Cajas! Adrian was our excellent guide who arrived on time to pick us up, and once we arrived, he had so much knowledge of the area’s history, environment, plants, animals, politics that affected changes over the years, etc. The first hike (lower Cajas) was easy, with mostly flat pathways, and the second hike (around Lake Toreadora in the upper Cajas) was only a little more challenging with slightly rougher pathways, and more up and down. We were lucky and avoided rain all day, and came home with loads of photos, and completely exhausted, but with memories of this wonderful day!"..."

The tour far surpassed anything we were expecting. Our guide, Wilson, is one of the most intelligent persons we have ever met. He has a deep knowledge and love for his country and the indigenous people in Ecuador. We asked many questions, about various things, during the tour and Wilson answered them all with ease. It is the best tour we've taken and would recommend Wilson and the tour to anyone who is interested! Dwayne and Meadow"..."

He was not only a great English speaker he was very knowledgeable for our random questions along the way (given you are in the car for a bit there was plenty of time for discussion about Ecuador and its culture). The visit to the cocoa was farm was great as we were able to walk through the farm and then see the process of roasting the cocoa and then making our own hot chocolate (which was quite delicious). Finally even though it was already getting later in the day, Javier took us on a quick tour of Cajas National park which at our behest included a small amount of hiking.
