Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. He did a wonderful job leading us through the Mindo Cloud Forest. We thoroughly enjoyed our day learning about the beautiful city of Quito and town of Mindo.

an amazing experience!
Well-organized tour from start to finish with great guides and great venues!
The Avenue of the Volcanoes tour was an exciting and excellent adventure. The itinerary was laid out in a great way to allow us to acclimatize properly so that by the time we got to Chimborazo, everyone in the group was feeling great and we had a successful and enjoyable hike to the second refuge and beyond. The daily hiking was challenging but the beauty made it worth every step. I loved the variety of lodgings we stayed each night. Each place had a unique style and was spacious, clean, comfortable and surpassed my expectations for what mountain lodging could be. The picnic lunches along the way were delicious, visually appealing and satisfying. What put this trip over the top though was our guide Juan. We’ve done several group treks in the past and I can confidently say that he was the best guide we’ve ever had. He is fun, friendly, and patient. He was organized in executing the itinerary, yet was flexible to allow some variations when we wanted to see or do something extra. As we hiked each day, Juan would tell us about the plants and animals we saw and also had a wealth of knowledge about geology and the history of the country. He was inquisitive and showed great interest in each one of us, allowing us to share our lives and experiences which helped the group bond. He also was open about his own life and it was so valuable to listen to his views and learn about how a local person lives his life in Ecuador today. He allowed for a true cultural immersion. I will remember and value our conversations as much as the stunning scenery we saw along the way. In closing, I love Adventure Journeys and look forward to booking another trip in the future.
Juan and Jorge our tour guides we're the most knowledgeable and kind individuals you could ask for and went out of their way to make this experience unforgettable
My tour was amazing! Alejandro was knowledgable and friendly. He took us on great day around the city and to the equator. I couldn't have asked for anything better.
The trip was extremely well coordinated and organized. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and professional. The trip lived up to expectations and I would highly recommend other travelers to consider Adventure Journey.
Our guide, Marcelo, from Adventure Journeys, and Marco, of the host community Mandari Panga, were amazing and were the reason this trip was a 10 out of 10. Their combined knowledge of Ecuador’s history and the jungle is incredible! Their willingness to explain and teach our group about the jungle wildlife and Mandari Panga way of life went beyond a business transaction, it was clear that they cared deeply about spreading their knowledge and providing an amazing experience to our group. The Mandari Panga people welcomed us with open arms into their community and were beyond hospitable. The restroom and sleeping accommodations were impressive for being deep in the jungle. It was very comfortable. The food prepared by the cook, Michael, and his family was incredible and gave a safe and authentic native cuisine experience. I would recommend Adventure Journeys to anyone interested in traveling to Ecuador, guaranteed to have an unmatched adventure of a lifetime!
Had an amazing time in Ecuador! All of the guides, drivers, staff were wonderful and went above and beyond to make sure we had a fantastic adventure
Adventure Journeys provided my wife and I with a truly amazing experience. The airport transfers, tour guide, local guides and accommodations, adventure activities and everything in between left us feeling safe and comfortable in a country to which we had never traveled. As a busy couple, we were looking for a trip that would be relaxing while also enabling cultural immersion and some adventure. We couldn't have been happier with the itinerary chosen for our trip that provided the perfect mix of activities for which we were looking, executed at an ideal pace, with a great group of people. We hope to return to Ecuador in the future and wouldn't think of booking with anyone other than Adventure Journeys.
