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.

We had a wonderful day, Erica and Alberto went above and beyond to make our day enjoyable. From Mindo to the chocolate factory everything was for our benefit. Even to giving me a helping hand up some of the steeper parts.

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!

A really great, interesting tour with Ernesto and Diana, we spent a wonderful day, can only be recommended.
