What people are saying about Pichincha

Wonderful experience.. went on a private tour. We were picked up promptly at 8. Saw hummingbird farm on the way. Then went on a hike into the forest. That was a long way but enjoyed it. Then the best part was the 2 seater ropeway which went through the thick forest. Felt like we were flying over the forest. This was absolutely amazing ride , thrilling all the way. A must do for every traveler. Our guide was great. Communication was very good.

The Mindo Cloud Forest left us completely fascinated. A natural place of great beauty. The additional activities we did (zip line and chocolate tour) turn out to be more than recommended. A special mention deserves the guide who accompanied us, Óscar. He coordinated the trip to the thousand wonders, was very attentive to us and made a two-hour car trip most enjoyable. We are totally grateful to you for the day we spent.

Mindo is worth a trip

I had booked the tour months in advance. Communication worked extremely well from start to finish. Punctual hotel pickup. The tour guide had a good knowledge and told us a lot of interesting things about our trip. We visit a hummingbird garden, a butterfly farm and learned a lot about chocolate making. The subsequent tasting of different chocolates was a real treat. I highly recommend the tour.

Trip is better than it sounds. Hummingbirds, hike to waterfall, cable car ride and ride down the mountain on the lift were all great.

Exceptional small group tour with flexibility to choose from multiple activities. Unique animals and scenery!
