Mountaineering with Andean Summit Adventures was a great experience. Friends from Austria recommended Elisabeth and her team to us. We did a rough two weeks with her guides doing the itinerary "Steadily Up" which worked out perfectly. Guides were very good, organization always worked out and last but not least we have Cotopaxi and Chimborazo to our names :).

Jaime and Elisabeth made an excellent team coordinating and guiding my climbs up to Pasachoa, Iliniza Norte, Cotopaxi, and Chimborazo. Thanks to Jaime's guidance and climbing pace, I was able to summit all four peaks without feeling winded or succumb to altitude. Elisabeth goes the extra mile, promptly answering all questions and consistently stays in touch to make sure clients are safe and satisfied with their services. There are many qualified guides in Ecuador, but Andean Summit Adventures is without a doubt the best option to take when climbing in the Andes. After searching the internet and reading reviews, I'm pretty sure you'll come to the same conclusion. The mountains themselves were stunningly beautiful and easily worth the trip from Oregon to Ecuador, but proper acclimatization, especially for Cotopaxi and Chimborazo, is a must. Out of three rope teams, my guide and I were the only ones to summit Chimborazo, and I suspect the reason was due to inadequate acclimatization.

it was out second visit to equador within one year after we failed to climb chimbo in 2018. we chose the night from the 31.12 to the 1.1.2020 for our summit push and we reached the summit on 1.1.2020 at 8am. the entire tour as organised by elisabeth from andean summit adventure was just awesome from day one when we arrived until the day when we departed from quito on 3.1 so what made the difference between dealing with andean summit adventure and the other agency which arranged our trip in 2018. planning of the itinerary of the trip went extremely smooth and we never had to wait more than 24 hours to get a reply to questions as rgds to the trip. the itinerary including the acclamatisation process was perfectly planned and all hotels excellent with volcano luna in banos right on the top of the list. as rgds to the chimbo climb which was obviously the highlight of the trip the patience and endurance of jaime our guide was remarkable. euqadorian guides as we found out in 2018 and now during our climb when we spoke to fellow climbers at carrel refugio find constant excuses why not to continue with the climb. none of our fellow climbers even made it to 6000m as their guides discouraged them with arguments such as they are too slow, it is still too many hours to go and climbers have to reach the summit before 7 am as it otherwise gets too dangerous( nonsense of course) Jaime and Hilarion his colleague from Bolivia had endless patience and brought us up to the summit and safely down and we can’t thank them enough. Thank you Elisabeth and Andean Summit for this amazing trip Anyone who wants to get more inside info,feel free to email me at rs@fastmail.net hasta entonces amigos

Dear Bong and Rainer, many thanks for taking your time and sharing your Ecuador experience with climbers and travellers out there. We appreciate that a lot! Your tour was very special, also for us and we enjoyed it a lot. Sharing the time with you and our colleague from Bolivia was great. We admire your determination and strategic approach to go for the summit and all that with not the very best weather conditions. Congratulations again to the both of you! We'll be happy to welcome you again in our wonderful country for some more climbing adventures. Stay safe dear friends and enjoy some skiing in Tyrol for us as well! Cheers, Elisabeth & Jaime
