Our objective was to have fun, acclimate gradually and climb at least one major volcano in Ecuador over a two week period. Andean Summit Adventures was exceptional in all facets of our trip, communicating frequently, responding promptly and maintaining contact throughout. Elizabeth is both highly organized and personally experienced. Our guide, Jaime, was our constant companion, mentor, teacher and leader as we progressed through a series of higher and more challenging hikes and summit scrambles. This culminated in a beautiful, blue bird, alpine ascent of Cotopaxi, which was an unforgettable experience. Recent, significant snow presented an avalanche danger on Chimborazo so we only went up to high camp (17,700’). We met almost every type of weather imaginable in a stunning trip through a beautiful country. Muchas gracias para todos, Jaime and Elizabeth!

We used Andean Summit Adventures guide service for a Cotopaxi acclimatization and climb. They were absolutely stellar. Everyone we worked with was professional, courteous, and extremely knowledgeable. Elisabeth was flexible and supportive as plans evolved and the guides were a lot of fun. I highly recommend this service.

Just finished a great climb up Illinizas Norte and Chimborazo arranged by Andean Summit Adventures (ASA), and it was wonderful (we were fortunate that the mountain spirits allowed us to summit both). Andean Summit is a very professional company, and my guide - Jaime Vargas - is a great fellow, and very experienced in these mountains. And believe me, you need this for these climbs, particularly Chimborazo. With his safety focus, Jaime is just the sort of fellow you want to be attached to going up Chimborazo!! Chimborazo is Beauty and the Beast -- it is spectacular, both from a distance, and from on its slopes. But it is also a beast, in the challenges and perils it presents to we humans. There is a real risk of injury or death on this mountain. Thus, it is essential to have an guide experienced on this mountain. Andean Summit has the right stuff.

Andean Summit Adventure was amazing! I booked two hikes with them and Elisabeth was incredibly helpful in the planning stages and our guide Marcial was amazing and a very skilled mountaineer, with him even the more difficult and technical climbs felt comfortable. I would absolutely recommend them for some mountain adventures in Ecuador!

Andean Summit Adventure is a top level company with top level service. Elisabeth helped me customize my trip so that I could accomplish all of my goals. This is the best value that can be found when climbing in South America!!!!! I can not stress enough how helpful and professional she is. On the climbing side, Jaime, is equally as impressive! He helped me learn new climbing techniques while keeping me safe. He is a professional among professionals. It is also comforting that every where we went people know him and would ask him all types of questions. Obviously others value his expertise too! With his guidance we summitted both Cotopaxi and Chimborazo. Thank you Jaime!!!!!!!!
