Sally emailed with me while I was still in the states and could not have done anything to make booking a specially designed ride in Cotapxi National Park easier. Her on-line brochures were informative, pricing fair, and questions on her booking forms thorough. I was able to fill out everything on-line and even make payment via PayPal.
Once in Quito, our pick up time was confirmed and Sally met us at our hotel. Although we kept forgetting things and delayed our departure , she did not seem annoyed with us a bit. She took care in making sure we were properly clothed, allowed for food preferences and arranged our ride astonishingly perfect for the riding skills of my husband and me. Yes, the horses are well trained, responsive and clearly well loved and cared for. Yes, the scenery was all that we hoped to experience. Yes, the hacienda we stopped at was marvelous with gracious hosts. But then there is Sally......what an unexpected bonus !
We were given a marvelous tour on our ride to and from our horseback adventure which educated us on the people, plants, animals, politics,economy, weather,customs, landmarks,haciendas, even shopping suggestions. She was able to help me confidently decide how to spend our last two days in Ecuador and even called and arranged a driver for us to see the Mindo Cloud Forest. Her advise for our continued travel was given freely and was of great value to us. We both feel very fortunate to travel to a country we've never been to and to have found someone we completely trust.
I would recommend a riding experience with RideAndes to anyone with any skill level. You will have the best day ever !
