Reviews for Ecuador walking vacation, tailormade


review 30 Aug 2017

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

Watching the "last iceman" at work high on Chimborazo.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

Be prepared for a wide range of weather conditions. Wrap up warmly in the haciendas, especially at night. Wear plenty of warm clothes to watch the "last iceman". Yet be prepared for warm sunshine too, especially at lower altitudes and during the middle of the day.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

We feel our vacation benefited local people by using local guides and staying in locally run, independent, 'non-chain' accommodation. We felt our vacation supported conservation by staying at San Isidro, where conservation initiatives are ongoing. We do not feel our vacation especially reduced environmental impacts in particular.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?
