“We are extremely likely to recommend AWR, and we’ll be using it again!

The highlights of our trip were: the variety of birds that we saw and quality of the guides at Sacha Lodge and Bellavista. They knew the Latin, Spanish and English term for birds + vegetation. I loved, too, the first lodges on our trek including the Cotopaxipungo and enjoyed getting a massage at the Hacienda el Porvenir + the owner was very friendly, looking forward to meeting you, and food was fabulous!

Finally, was so glad that we hiked part of the volcano though it was a strange experience to be hiking in the snow, knowing that we were on the equator.

The old growth trees in the Ecuadorian rainforest are incredible!

I almost forgot to mention: the Dann Carlton was wonderful, and I noticed that a lot of captains and flight attendants from various airlines stayed there, a good sign. The patisserie in the hotel was so excellent that we ate there 3 times- very good light dinners, lunches and, especially, coffees and pastries.

Thanks!”
