Very nice, we could not see the Chimborazo, but the landscape was beautiful you can see vicuñas and llamas and we had lunch that was included and was very good.

Four hours well spent! The "train" is a diesel-powered truck on rails, so don't get excited about that aspect. But the views along the way are scenic, and the guide (bilingual Spanish-English) was very knowledgeable about local traditions and cultural practices. The tour leaves from Riobamba train station mid-day and travels to Colta in about an hour. There you visit historic Balbanera church--the first Catholic church in Ecuador--as well as Colta lagoon and a nearby traditional healing center (including a 30-minute barefoot tour). A basic lunch is included. I was surprised that despite being touristy, the whole experience was pleasantly diverse and very enjoyable. Don't expect action; it's more of a half-day cultural excursion/immersion.
