Hello, dear Karen Gracias por confiar en Polylepis Tours Ecuador y por tomarse un tiempo para escribir un comentario de su visita al Parque Nacional Cajas con el guia Edison, saludos a Jorge Regards from Polylepis Tours Ecuador Team
Amazing outdoor experience
, Dec 2020
I had a wonderful time on this tour with Edwin. He knew so much about the local culture and nature- he was easily able to answer all of my questions! He was also very encouraging when I was trying to catch my breath during the hike. It’s definitely manageable- but if you’re from sea level like me, you will definitely be out of breath! Very beautiful tour, definitely book this!

Great outdoors adventure

My tour guide, Edison, took me on a very beautiful hike in El Cajas. I was the only person signed up, so he let me decide what I wanted to do in the park. He has so much knowledge about the local culture and nature- I learned so much! After our 3 hour hike, we had a delicious lunch. If you're in Cuenca, you must book this tour!

Hike through Cajas + San Luis

Tour guide was a guy named, Edison who was very knowledgeable about the local flora and fauna. We took a side trip up San Luis Peak, 13' ft mountain. Very cool guide. Very beautiful scenery. Highly recommended.

The tour was great. I took a private tour with Edison, a Cuencan local. We passed by San Luis peak, and even though it wasn't part of the tour, he let me climb up to the top (~13k feet). The polylepis forest was really surprising and beautiful. He took me off the beaten path a bit. All-in-all it was a nice little 6 hour adventure through the Cajas.

The tour was absolutely amazing. Our tour guide Eddy provided a very personal and educational experience. He was incredibly knowledgable about the flora and fauna of the park and always had something interesting to discuss, whether it had been the park's history, the ecology of the park and even the city of Cuenca and the people of Ecuador. He also took us to a great local eatery where we had some very authentic cuisine. He also walked at a very manageable pace. It was quite a long set of hikes, but he was understanding of us being unaccustomed to the high-altidue and didn't rush us through at any point. Honestly, we can't say enough good things about Eddy. It was apparent that he really loved what he did and he made for a most enjoyable day in Ecuador.
