Rafting

Full Day Tour

The only full day rafting tour from Quito in shared service with fixed departures and with no minimum of passengers. This tour will make you feel the adrenaline of crossing the category III rapids of the crystal clear water of the Jatunyacu River in a 5 hour rafting adventure. Our internationally certified guides will give you all the excitement of the river with all the necessary securities. In the middle of the river we will have lunch and we will also visit an indigenous community.

Great diverse adventures in a short period of time. Cotopaxi was an amazing experience. But truth be told, the whole adventure and connecting with Carlos (guide) and the rest of the group in our little tour was the best part, the beauty of traveling and meeting fellow travelers and adventurers. I wish the trip was even longer and we could spend more time exploring different parts of Ecuador, there is just so much to see and do. Tour was well organized, rooms and accommodations were clean, the rides were great and the sights was good and a good variety of different options were available which made it fun. I would definitely recommend.

Fun Excursion to Cotopaxi Visiting Cotopaxi and hiking to the base camp was awesome! The park is beautiful:) Jacqui was a great tour guide, sharing lots of interesting facts about Ecuador, telling the traditional stories about the volcanos, and sheltering at the base camp together after weathering the more the normal rain/wind/snow! Also thank you to Carlos, our driver, I had fun off-roading the dirt trails in the park. If you want to do a more personal tour then I definitely recommend this!

Simply amazing experience What a great tour, would highly recommend this to anyone that visits Quito. Thanks Carlos & Mauricio for a memory we will never forget. One tip which might be useful: bring gloves, it can get extremely cold up there so come prepared!

Tour a Quilotoa y Cotopaxi Los tours de Best Trip Ecuador son ideales para quienes deseen despreocuparse de la planificación de la visita a ambos atractivos. Irene y Carlos fueron unos guías excepcionales e hicieron que la experiencia al Quilotoa fuera memorable. Por otro lado, la guianza de Erika al Cotopaxi fue excelente. Quedo muy satisfecha con el servicio brindado, me gustó que me recogieran personalmente de mi Hostal, me sentí muy segura y acompañada todo el tiempo en este viaje que hice sola.

un lapso de tiempo magico Hola, solamente un mensaje porque queremos decir muchísimas gracias a Irene y a Jacqueline, nuestras guidas que han sido mágicas con nosotros. A veces es difícil de ser turistas porque no sabemos si lo que estamos haciendo esta bien o no. Gracias a ellas, hemos podido descubrir cosas y también preguntarlas sobre todo. Ha sido muy interesante en todas las conversaciones que hemos tenido. Además, sus intervenciones en el bus y sus energías positivas solamente puede darte una sonrisa. Sin olvidar nuestro conductor: Mauricio, que ha sido parte de los dos viajes. La laguna y el volcán eran increíbles como todo el día. Poder entrar en vuestra cultura así es un privilegio y nunca seremos suficientes reconocidos por esto. Así que, solamente un muchísimas gracias a vuestros tres; merecéis mucho positivo en todo.
