Words can't describe. JUST GO WITH ECOSPORTOUR & ALEX!
Jan 2021
I can't say enough good things about this company ECOSPORTOUR and Alex. What a team of amazing people. Everything went based on the plan from organizing to picking up and checking temperature. Alex is very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about his job. His English is perfect. He tells stories along the way. Fairy tales and legends along scientific facts. He is full of energy yet never left anyone behind. Smiled always and answered all the questions.

My phone died and Alex kept taking my photos and even videos which he WhatsApp me later. I think I found a true Ecuadorian friend.

Now for the Cotopaxi tour. It was perfect. Started on time at the meeting point then Alex explained everything in details including legends. We then headed to Cotopaxi. First was the hike to the Refuge 1. Sadly the trail to Refuge 2 was closed due to safety concerns but we felt satisfied being in Refuge 1. Bring your passport to get a passport stamp if you want :) Alex stayed at the end of the group to make sure nobody is left behind. We then had hot coca on refuge 1 before heading down. Now it was time for the 2nd and craziest adventure. Bike down to the Lagoon. This was amazing. We met some Lamas along the way and stopped to take photos.
I struggled with my bike's gear and told Alex. He immediately gave me his bike and took mine. Guess what? The bike was fine. I couldn't figure out how to change the gear. Haha. It is COLD there. Take layers including Mittens and Hat. It started snowing when we were up there. Go slow. Baby steps or your heart will not be happy at all.

You should go with Alex to experience this beauty without headache.

I have been talking to Alex almost daily. Asking him questions randomly and he is ALWAYS responsive. Never felt I am being annoying. I even asked him today how to get from Quito South Terminal to my hostel by bus and he patiently told me how to.

Alex, David, and others .. THANK YOU SO MUCH.

Cotopaxi with Carlos.. 5 stars!!🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
My boyfriend and I toured Cotopaxi with Carlos as our tour guide Nov 8, 2020. It was such a memorable tour. His vibrant energy and passion for Ecuador’s culture and beautiful landscape was outstanding. We both learned more on this day trip than we did the entire week. Carlos provides the best hospitality and love for his country. We will be back for more tours! Thank you for the awesome memories!

An Action-Packed Adventure at a Convenient Price
Oct 2020 • Couples
Our tour to Cotopaxi with Carlos was fantastic! Carlos was super friendly and knowledgeable about the area and history of volcanoes. He engaged with each and every member of the tour, making you feel as if he'd been one of your long-time friends. He speaks English, French and of course, native Spanish. He also ensured that everyone would be looked after. Meaning, if the hike in high altitudes became difficult for anyone at anytime, we would all stop together as a group. Therefore, you, as an individual were made to feel comfortable going at your own pace without being left behind.

The tour itself was beautiful. We rode a bus to 4200 meters where we were given an opportunity to stop for snacks, drinks, gloves and hats if you needed to purchase them. I highly recommend that you get hats and gloves if you don't have them. They costed $5 each. Carlos even had us stop at a local store for these things as he explained that purchasing these things within the park would be expensive.

When it came to the hike, the trail wasn't strenuous. However, due to the high altitude, it can literally take your breath away. Depending on how acclimated you are to the altitude, you may find yourself taking frequent breaks to catch your breath. Once you reach 4800 meters, you come to a nice place know as "The Refuge" where you can use the bathroom at no cost and purchase warm beverages like coca tea, coffee and hot chocolate. This was also a nice opportunity to socialize with the rest of your travel crew!

Once you finish at the refuge, you hike back down to 4200 meters where you grab your bike, helmet and ride your way back down! The pathway is quite bumpy, so I recommend going to the bathroom before heading down! You may also want to prepare your hands as they may get sore holding onto the breaks for an extended period of time.

Once the bike ride is complete, you head back into town, enjoy your complimentary and complete lunch and your bus will go to drop you off at your accomodation.

I would say that this tour is highly worth it for the price. A fun-filled day with great exercise, views and adventure. Carlos also takes photos and shares them with you by phone, for free if you'd like. An amazing time!
