This was my first trip to South America and I would not have changed a thing. If you can handle: biking, climbing, rafting, hiking, zip lining, dancing, and waterfalls then this is the trip for you. It’s difficult to pick an activity because it was really the incredible people who work on this program that made this an unforgettable experience. People like Christian, Oscar, and everyone else involved in the program really bring the magic that is Ecuador and make sure you feel welcome. I was able to tell that all of them are seasoned professionals who know the country inside and out. I would never choose anyone else for an active expedition at this point after seeing them handle every day with ease. You will eat incredible food every single day, you will stay in beautiful and unique accommodations, and a view of the surrounding mountains is outside every window. I almost missed this trip because of passport troubles, and I’m thankful every single day I did not because I would never have forgiven myself. Thank you guys!

This was the trip of a lifetime! It was full of adventure, excitement, and great friendship. Oscar and Christian were not just guides they became friends that I hope to visit again. I would highly recommend this trip or any trip with Active Expedition because If they are ran by them I’m confident it will be a great trip!

This tour was amazing and I highly recommend Christian! Great hiking, scenery, company, and views. A nice blend of upscale hotels and fun activities balanced with rustic home stays and relaxing in thermal pools and lagoons.

Although I loved the hiking, biking, and lagoon relaxing, canyoning in the Amazon was the highlight for me and so worth coming to Ecuador for.

Side note-Ecuador is doing an impressive job of cleaning and sanitizing for covid so I felt safe, even in rural areas. National Parks had hand wash stations, clean bathrooms, etc.

I can’t say enough good things about this tour.

I booked the active Ecuador tour with Christian. We took a bike ride on Cotopaxi volcano, then we went to Banos and chased waterfalls, downhill mountain biking in the cloud Forrest, spent time in Tena, kayaking in the Amazon, stayed a night with Kitchwa community. This was an incredible way to see the biodiversity Ecuador has to offer. Christian was a great tour guide with extensive knowledge about educator and safety during our activities. I highly recommend to those who like to explore!

This was one of the most memorable trips my wife and I have ever went on. Christian was the most knowledgeable guide we could have asked for and took care of the groups every need. From the landscape, culture and people, Ecuador is one of a kind. We vowed to each other that we would visit again! Truly a magical country.

A truly memorable experience. My wife and I had such an amazing trip with Christian. A real multi-sport private tour that was a dream come true. Everything from start to finish was well organized as we felt safe and welcome the entire time. From hiking,cycling, kayaking and exploring the Amazon we have memories that will last a lifetime.

Over the top. We were not sure exactly what to expect but any expectations were exceeded. Christian put together an amazing week of adventures and exceptional places to stay. Ecuador offers an unparalleled diversity of ecosystems and biodiversity. It’s impossible to take it all in, in a single week but, Christian tried to show us as much as he could. From climbing to the glaciers, rafting, canyoneering, zip lining, biking, spelunking, and sharing meals with our new friend. Simply fantastic, can’t wait to return.

All I can say is this was the most amazing trip I've ever been on! If you are even slightly considering this, do it!! It was truly amazing! Christian is not only a great guide but now a amazing friend. Christian has surrounded himself with an amazing group of people to support this trip! Every person who helped out (Cesar, Orlando, Eddie and several other) was top notch, friendly, helpful happy, fun loving good people and together made this trip unforgettable.
The trip was very active but never felt rushed. Everything felt safe and the gear was current and well maintained. The places we stayed were all unique and I enjoyed every one of them. Ecuador itself is an amazing place but made so much better by the hard work and true love for the environment of Christian and his group of amazing people. I will never forget this trip! Christian thank you my friend and I will see you again soon!!

This trip was truely amazing covering very diverse experiences in Ecuador. Due to the low season and Corona, I was the only participant in the tour, but Christian made totally up for it and adjusted the tour to my level, staying flexible. I learnt a lot about people, nature and the country and would love to return again. The venue is gorgeous allrounder, where you can discover many different faces of Ecuador and what this beautiful country has to offer.
A very big thank you to Christian....I will retun :)
