A memorable trip to Ecuador - The Active Ecuador tour took us to so many beautiful locations and was packed with fun daily activities. There were five travelers total in our group, and by the end of the trip everyone was raving about what an unforgettable experience it was. We were incredibly lucky to have Daniel as our guide and Jorge as our driver - their attentiveness & professionalism was a huge reason the trip was such a success!

Exceeded All Expectations! - What a trip! I can hardly think of a better way to take in the amazing Cordillera of Ecuador. The trails were just right, not too easy, not too hard, fun, great exercise (hello high altitude!) and truly breathtaking.
The accommodations were wonderful, the food was great and our guide, Oscar, was world-class. Probably didn't hurt that we scored perfect weather the whole week too;)
Ecuador is a very special place and I so look forward to exploring it more in the future. And, when I do find myself in Ecuador again, without hesitation I will make travel plans with ActivExpedition. And, in all honesty, even though I prefer to seek out new and different experiences, I would consider doing a repeat of this biking adventure - It was that enjoyable!
Thank you, Oscar and Christian, keep up the great work! I hope to be calling upon you again soon.

My father and I had a blast at this tour. Chris took us perfectly step by step through the trails, so my father who isn't a downhiller found a good pace for himself.
As I was traveling with my family, they took care of my mother, who would be alone otherwise. So we all 3 could expierience Cotopaxi differently, but at the same time.
Tbh. the price seems high, but bike, gear, shuttle, a great guide, fotos and a final cerveza are included 😉

Awesome trip, fantastic guide - Just got back from their volcano bike tour in Ecuador... it was amazing! Our guide (Oscar) was the best I've had on any trip... very knowledgable and a fun personality. I was surprised how good the accommodations and food were... most tours I've been on skimp on those things, but Active Expeditions did not. I would say the biking is a little more challenging than they lead on, but I can see where they might take easier routes for anyone struggling... that said, they do have a support car there the whole trip if you need it. I would definitely recommend doing the bike upgrade option... the standard bikes are nice, but the upgraded bikes are amazing and make the trip a lot more fun. For anyone looking to head to this region of South America, I can't recommend these guys enough!

Beautiful sights, educational guide, - One of the best trips I’ve ever been on! Our guide, Oscar, was intelligent in all aspects (politics, flowers, astronomy, mountain biking, etc.) and very fun to be around! Cracking jokes and answering almost all my ridiculous questions.
We biked around Ecuador’s volcanoes and forests during the day, stopping only to take in the beautiful sights or eat a delicious lunch, and at night we crashed in comfortable beds at luxurious hotels and bathed in hot tubs.
I can think of no better way to explore Ecuador then getting to bike around its most beautiful sights at your own pace. Let alone with local guides. Truly a worthwhile experience that I highly recommend.

We had had a fantastic time visiting Medellin, Santa Marta, and Cartagena in Colombia! Your trip was filled with diverse experiences that showcase the beauty of the country's culture and nature.
Medellin's charm, Santa Marta's coastal allure, and Cartagena's historic beauty make them three fantastic destinations to explore. We enjoyed the local food and learned about the rich local culture, as immersing oneself in the culture is one of the most rewarding aspects of traveling.
Exploring the Tayrona National Park through trekking in the Tayrona Forest quite an adventure, this was our first time and it was amazing experience. Meeting with local people and learnt about their culture was an amazing experience.
Our tour guide Christian was amazing. He had made us fell so comfortable. He is so easy to work with. We made few last minute changes and he was so helpful in making it happen. We highly recommend using ActiveExpedition for your next trip
