Dario Battini (Italy) One of the best parts of my trip in Ecuador was for sure the horseback-riding trip that Ecuador Eco Adventure organized for us. He took the horses and the guides from a local community, in a fair way that we definitly prefer, and he drives me and my friends in the incredible Chimborazo Mountain for two days. We spent the night camping at 4000 meters, enjoyed together the Rodeo of Salinas and we have a special view of the real Ecuador thanks to Ecuador Eco Adventure. He is not only a good friend but also a perfect guide always ready to help you in many ways and take care of avery little detail. I and my friends are very glad to our guide for all the energy and the knowledge tha he shared with us. If you want to taste the real Ecuaodr and to have a wonderful adventure I highly recommend Ecuador Eco Adventure.
Nina and Liza (Netherlands) The archeological tour to the pyramid on top of Puñay was incredible. Quite a challenge for two very inexperienced hikers but truly worth it. After hearing about the history of the ancient cultures we got really excited about this hidden treasure. Camping on top of the mountain we learned about the magic of hanan pacha and explored the pyramid. And the sunrise the next morning was truly indescribable.
Mostly it was the way the tour was set up that made it this great. Our guide was able to tell us all we wanted to know, we had our own input into the plan and it was the opposite from the average gringo experience. It showed us how tourism can be, without the negative undertone.
Aurita Maldonado (USA) I went with Ecuador Eco Adventure into the jungle for 3 days, on a day trek around Baños, and on a 2 day horse trek around Chimborazo. I had an absolute blast. In the jungle we stayed in a jungle hut, ate fresh tilapia, visited an animal conservatory, trekked in the jungle, went birdwatching, river bathing, and even went dancing. (He’s not a bad salsa dancer).
In Baños, we had a great time. He’s definitely a great trekker. The horse riding was amazing. The highlands were beautiful. Ecuador Eco Adventure had everything ready for us, for less than half the price of other tours. We had meals, transportation, lodging, and great guides. We visited Salinas and thermal hot springs. It was an all around great adventure.
Not to mention the night before both trips, our guide stayed up until after 2 AM to get me from the bus station without complaint.
