We did 3 days of tours with CarpeDM and were impressed with the quality of the guides and the time they put in to make our vacation perfect. We had private tours (just our family) and they did little extras to make each day spectacular

I would recommend staying in Cotopaxi for AT LEAST one night. That's the amount of time I stayed but I wish I had stayed longer. It's quite far from Quito (assuming that's where you're located), and Cotopaxi National Park... More
