We had the best time with our tour guide, Stefy! This was an awesome tour. We went Ziplining in the Amazon, saw some beautiful waterfalls and learned how chocolate is made! Stefy even took some photos for us and sent them to us after!

Why you need to look no further... 1) communication- getting everything booked was easy. Emailing with Dorian who provided details for every step and was very responsive. 2) Value - we were flying in late at night and felt safer booking and airport transfer, which...More

We chose CarpeDM Adventure for Cotopaxi tour because it offers a bike ride down to Lake Limpiopungo after a hike to Cotopaxi. Everything went perfectly with the tour. Beautiful scenery, excellent guides (Andreas and Estuardo) and delicious breakfast and lunch. This tour is the highlight...More

I would recommend staying in Cotopaxi for AT LEAST one night. That's the amount of time I stayed but I wish I had stayed longer. It's quite far from Quito (assuming that's where you're located), and Cotopaxi National Park... More
