TRIPADVISOR REVIEW JUNE 28/2014

Cotopaxi day trip

We had a wonderful day with Richard. it was a personal tour with pick up from and return to our hotel in Quito. We visited the Cotopaxi national park and Cotopaxi volcano. Richard was knowledgeable, courteous and thoroughly professional. We learned a lot from him and recommend him highly.

Richard is an AMAZING naturalist and guide!

We just spent the day with Richard doing a hiking and birding day in the Mindo Cloud Forest and we cannot recommend this highly enough. I called Richard very last-minute and he was graciously able to fit us in and accompanied us for the day. We were so lucky! Richard is very knowledgeable about the forest and also very passionate about conservation and eco-tourism. He knows where excellent private reserves are in the forest and took us to three spots where we saw an amazing array of hummingbirds, toucans and tanagers. We also enjoyed a beautiful hike into a huge waterfall where we saw many orchids, bromeliads and lilies. Richard is so friendly, open and warm and we thoroughly enjoyed our conversations with him throughout the day. I couldn't imagine coming to the Mindo cloud forest with anyone else, and we're already planning how we can get back to do more exploring here. Definitely visit the Mindo cloud forest when you're in Quito.

Excellent Day Trip to Mindo Cloud Forest

Our day trip tour with Richard Hernandez was excellent. Richard is extremely knowledgeable naturalist. The whole day was enjoyable. My favorite part was visiting the hummingbird sanctuary. Since this was a private tour, Richard was very accommodating to our needs. Richard loves what he does and it shows in his enthusiasm on the tour. Another highlight of the tour, was a detour that we took when some locals found a rare snake in the forest and we went to view it. Such an amazing experience! Thanks Richard.

Hiking and birds

moderate to difficult hiking level required.

Fantastic day tour with a local taste but not touristy. Ecological and sustainable support to quite not very crowded places where they do also welcome people like you. A minimum hiking level is required and a disposal also to learn about the ecosystem and local people.

Two types of tours in one day tour. On this we do not visit the town of Mindo, we do enjoy hiking and birds.
