Fernando is an excellent and knowledgeable guide, and the itinerary is a nice balance of climbs and recovery time, including
time to explore a couple of cities. He also made sure we were well-equipped for the climbs. The guides are geared more toward getting you up and down than toward building any technique. It’s not billed as an instructional course, so that’s not a complaint — just pointing it out for those who like to use one experience to build to another rather than just reach the summit.
Edgar is an amazing guide. He is incredibly knowledgeable and encouraging. The combination makes you feel confident in the things
that he teaches you and in your ability to reach the summit.
Edgar Parra is a great guide: thoroughly professional, safety conscious, always on time and with an engaging personality. He came
highly recommended and I can only heap additional praise. He guided my son and I up Cotopaxi to a successful summit and made it a trip of a lifetime. In so far as putting my money where my mouth is, I plan to hire him in the future (2020) with my entire family for a trip to Machu Picchu. No better praise than a repeat customer.
Jaime was absolutely amazing. He always made sure that safety is the priority, even when I was tired and had
problems with altitude. I’d climb any mountain with him!
Even though we turned around at 5900m due to avalanche danger I really enjoyed the climb and Segundo was a
great guide – professional and friendly.
I am writing in regards to the tour my husband and I took to Chimborazo November 3-4,2018. We had a very
great time and were lucky enough to make the hike to the summit. The guide who picked us up from Hotel San Francisco was very nice and on time as expected, his name was Jaun Carlos. Once we arrived for dinner Jaun Carlos introduced us to our guide who we’d be hiking with the next day, his name is Fausto. Both guides were professional and very helpful. Once we all made it to the summit our camera died and we were unable to take any photos. Thankfully Fausto had his phone available and was able to capture several pictures and a couple videos.
A fantastic trip! Segundo was a wonderful guide and made the trip a lot of fun. Even during difficult weather
and when things didn’t go as expected, he kept a positive attitude and continued to motivate me when I was beginning to lose momentum. I would absolutely recommend this trip and Lonely Summits to anyone looking to visit the beautiful country of Ecuador – whether you’re an experienced climber or not, the services provided by Lonely Summits are fantastic for any skill level or price point.
I had an excellent experience with Andean Summit Adventure during my recent climb of Volcano Cotopaxi. Elisabeth did a tremendous
job coordinating all of the logistics details for my trip while I was still in the United States. Jaime Vargas, my guide, provided a first-rate, safe, and excellent experience during the climb itself. I was completely happy with the support that Andean Summit Adventure provided me and I highly recommend them as a tour/guide service for outings in South America.
The trip was amazing ! Raphael was highly knowledgable and I had a great time.
Gabriel Mongeau for 2-day ascent to Iliniza North
This was a fantastic mountaineering trip to Ecuador. The altitude was a bit of a challenge, but Ramiro did a
great job with the acclimatization schedule leading up to the taller mountains. Overall, this was a challenging experience given the altitude of the climbs as well as the back-to-back climbing of four mountains. I would highly recommend this excursion for anyone who wants to experience a fantastic country/culture as well as someone who wants to gain some nice experience mountaineering!
Fredy Tipan is like a superhero of the outdoor world. He knows absolutely everyone, has climbed and guided in the
most epic of locations all around the world, knows the mountains like old friends, and really loves what he does and who he does it for. Our trip was completely messed up after an issue with our airline tickets. We weren’t going to be able to leave until a week after our planned departure which jeopardized our entire trek with Fredy. We didn’t expect him to take any sort of responsibility in replanning as it was our mistake that caused the airline issue but he absolutely did. Within days he rearranged the entire trek so that we would be able to summit all our desired peaks without cutting the days down and without changing the cost. He is a class act and an incredible guide and I’d say my husband and I both consider him a friend as well. We will definitely be booking another trip with Fredy Tipan and recommend him to anyone looking for the real deal in outdoor Guides. Thank you, Fredy!
Amazing short but exciting climb to a summit with outstanding views. Perfect acclimatization peak for the bigger Ecuadorian volcanoes, with
a cozy hut and a nice approach walk. Fredy was fantastic, thank you so much for this unforgettable experience!
It was a great experience. Everything was very well arranged and taken care of. The guide (Fernando Iza) was extremely
professional, safe, and friendly. I was very happy about everything, and would recommend booking with Fernando Iza for any hiking trip on Ecuador.
I have travelled for several years to climb and hike mountains all over the world. I’ve had numerous guides,
many of which were wonderful. However, I have to say, Edgar Parra has been the best climbing guide I’ve ever had. He was extremely professional, on time, motivated, encouraging, explained everything and translated for me (due to my lack of Spanish), adjusted our schedule when we had bad weather to ensure we were safe and yet still has a good experience climbing, and has a passion for mountains and climbing like nobody I’ve ever met before. I will most certainly come back to Ecudor specifically because of Edgar and his positive outlook on life and passion for mountain climbing. I would recommend him to anyone wanting to climb the mountains in Ecuador many of the other other countries he climbs in (Peru, Bolivia, and Russion to name a few more).

Edgar Parra is an excellent mountain guide. He cares about clients very well. Everything went super smoothly. I enjoyed the
