I love to enjoy nature, it makes to handle my life easier and calm. I started to climb mountains since 2015, it was a hobby and a kind of activity where I find my own. I know how difficult could be for some people to go alone in a touristic place, or find other ways to enjoy it, for that reason I could help them going for different places of the mountain.

Just an AMAZING tour experience. Cecilia and David are so much fun and are great guides. Our original plans were cancelled due to coronavirus. Cecilia and David replanned the whole tour and we went somewhere else. It was such a blast. Go on this tour!!

10 out of 10 would highly recommended! If you’re in Quito and looking for an adventure I would suggest a hike with Cecilia and David! Today we trekked with David. I couldn’t have asked for a better experience. He continuously put our safety first. Unfortunately we did not complete the summit due to hail, but it was all worth it! The sights and nature. David was extremely knowledgeable on the wild life and plants. Teaching us about things along the way. I was a little scared that I would be too slow for the trek but David kept a steady pace that was easy to maintain. If I’m ever back in Quito I would wish to do this again! Cecilia and David mucho garcias!!! I would also recommended packing all things that Cecilia and David list!

David made the hike very enjoyable. He was very patient and made our safety his number one priority. He had a lot of knowledge of the route and pointed out different things along the way. I recommend this tour to anyone thinking of hiking this route.

This experience was nothing short of amazing Cecilia went above and beyond in her attention to our groups needs. Safety was a priority. She also brought along an additional guide who was incredible and instrumental in our success at reaching the summit. Cecilia provided great history and cultural information related to the area we visited. We highly recommend Cecilia and this trip for outdoor enthusiasts looking for a challenging hike.
