From Baños we will make a stop at Riobamba for those who wish to hop off and explore this town’s colorful traditional markets or enjoy views of Mount Chimborazo.
After Riobamba, we will make an exclusive stop at the oldest church in Ecuador, and another exclusive stop at the scenic Laguna de Colta to enjoy some outstanding views of the Ecuadorian countryside. After that, there is a 45 minute stop in Alausí, where you can choose whether to enjoy dinner and then continue on to Cuenca, or whether you would like to ride the Nariz del Diablo train, known to be one of the most beautiful train rides on the planet. To ride the train and to explore the beautiful Ecuadorian landscapes, you will need to spend at least two nights in the town. (Remember to check the bus departures when planning your journey!)
Finally, we will continue on to Cuenca, a beautiful colonial city in southern Ecuador. Cuenca is a true paradise for lovers of architecture and culture, so make sure you take advantage of this fascinating place.
