Informative, friendly and professional guide
Day 1: Quito -- Riobamba After pickup from your hotel in Quito, listen to commentary from your guide of the 185-mile (300-km) Avenue of the Volcanoes. Admire scenic landscapes and gaze with awe at Ecuador’s highest mountain peaks. You’ll be amazed by the breathtaking views of Cayambe, Sangay, El Altar and more, each of them towering over 16,00 feet (5,000 meters). Stop for a brief visit in Cotopaxi National Park, one of Ecuador’s most visited ecological reserves, with plenty of great photo opportunities. Reaching a height of 19,350 feet (5,900 meters), Cotopaxi volcano is one of the highest volcanoes on earth. Relax here as you enjoy lunch (not included) and rest assured – although active, Cotapaxi hasn’t erupted since 1904. After you arrive in Riobamba, enjoy dinner (not included) and spend your evening at leisure. Overnight: a typical hacienda of the region (category - first)
Day 2: Riobamba -- Quito (B) After breakfast is served at your accommodation, depart for the train station in Alausí. From here, board the train (subject to change) for a 2-hour ride, zigzagging around sweeping slopes as you gaze out the open windows, and snap photos of the panoramic views along the way. Head toward Devil’s Nose, a rock wall jutting skyward, as you listen to commentary from an expert guide. Then return to Alausí for a box lunch (not included) before transport back to your Quito hotel in the afternoon.
