Voted as one of the best things to do with one day free in Quito, this tour allows you to escape the city to visit Cotopaxi, an iconic snow-capped volcano in the Andean countryside, one of Ecuador’s most photographed sights. Experience the magic of the Andes on this day hike through different areas of the Cotopaxi National Park as far as the famous Jose Rivas basecamp.
This tour is perfect for people who don’t have time to travel by bus to the whole South of Ecuador (if you do have time check our passes here) or for those people who will fly from Quito to Guayaquil or vice versa and have a stopover in Quito.

We will be taking a short break at the end of December for Christmas and New Year. We do this to give our bus drivers and guides time to spend with their families during these special holidays. As a business, we know this may disappoint some travelers, but we care about our employees the same way we care about our passengers and want to give them a well-deserved rest.

As well as an unbeatable safety record, Ecuador Hop is also famous for its punctuality and comfort. In South America, where things often run later than scheduled, we are very proud to say we achieve a 98.5% on-time arrival for each trip.
If comparing Ecuador Hop to other bus companies, make sure you check their safety record, past accidents, as well as their Tripadvisor page (if they even bother to have one) as often you will find there is a reason why some bus companies have “cheaper” prices than Ecuador Hop.
