I loved being able to see the Central Highlands and hike Quilotoa. While I appreciated the stop for breakfast, fresh fruit, and the gallery/source it shop, I was disappointed by the little time allotted to the hike. Perhaps I would have felt differently if I had a clearer sense of the intinerary/schedule, but I didn’t find out until I got on the bus. With such a small window, it was stressful and exhausting. I was also surprised that Carlos didn’t do the hike with us. The lunch was also underwhelming for the price.

Dear customer. Each trip has a brief explanation of the itinerary. Our guide always walks down with our passengers up to the lagoon. I don´t know why this time he didn´t. This tour is actually one of the best day trips from Quito because of the beautiful Andes landscape. It is a long day trip (11-12 hours) that´s why the time is limited and passengers should understand it. You paid us $65 for this trip which lunch is not included. We suggest restaurants so each passenger eats and pays whatever they want. The VAN we always use is a (CRAFTER VOLKSWAGEN 30, 17 passengers, the year 2016) which is really comfortable. I respect your opinion but think your comment is not really appropriate. Your comment is useful for future customers to clarify what we do and offer. Thank you!

This was a wonderful experience and Fabian was a fantastic guide! We enjoyed every minute of the trip and are so glad that we made the trek out to Quilotoa lagoon. Fabian was very friendly, engaging and extremely knowledgeable of this region and all of Ecuador. We learned so much from him and were very grateful that he was our guide. The lagoon was breathtaking. The hike down to the lake is quite steep and not recommended for anyone unstable on their feet, but if you are able, it is well worth it. If you are not used to high altitude, climbing back up the very steep trail could be extremely difficult. We opted to take the mules back to the top to avoid hurting ourselves unnecessarily as we have many more travels and hikes ahead on our trip. It was a long journey, but completely worth it. Highlight of our trip to Quito.

Great trip and excellent guides. It’s a very long day but we’ll worth it. The hike down to the lagoon is great. The hike back up should be a tough mudder course.

Quilitoa Lagoon and Indigenous Town

Extremely well put together tour with some of the most majestic views I’ve seen. Daniel was an incredible tour guide, very informative and friendly and helpful. It was so interesting to see how the indigenous people live and how little they need to smile.... highly recommend as you get to see so much and it’s not overly strenuous. The walk down to Quilotoa was worth every thing. Takes about 40 min to get down and you can take a horse or mule back up for just 10.00. Special experience!

This tour was a great way to get to know some of the local culture, history, and nature. The drive from Quito to Quilotoa is quite scenic, so we stopped several times to snap a picture. Quilotoa itself is a marvel. I had plenty of time to hike down into the crater, kayak in the lake, and rent a mule to take me back up (my lungs were definitely not yet adjusted!). I couldn't recommend this tour enough!

Great day at Quilotoa Lagoon

Great tour. Oscar was a wonderful guide. He picked us up at our hotel on time and drove us to the Lagoon. We stopped at an Quechua family home first, which we requested and loved. He was great to point out and stop at other points of interest along the way. We had a meal at the village at Quilotoa which was authentic and delicious. Our day was perfect thanks to Oscar. Wonderful experience. Definitely recommend the mule/horse on the way back up from the bottom of the lagoon. It's a treaterous walk down, and worse on the way back up. It was $10 for the horse to come up. $3 for kayaks at the bottom. I recommend doing both.
