Volcanoes of Ecuador Testimonials

To put our comments into perspective, my wife and I have also had the opportunity to climb Kilimanjaro, Rainier, Aconcagua and some local mountains around Calgary, but all with different guiding companies.  In summary we were tremendously pleased and satisfied with every aspect of our holiday and climbs.  Alpine Ascents truly exceeded our expectations.  In particular we were most impressed with your lead guide Jose Luis Peralvo.  In addition to being an excellent guide and always being concerned for our safety, was a wonderful a most gracious host to us. My first mountain trip where I did not lose weight. The travel logistics, hotels and lodges etc, were all superb.  We will certainly climb with Alpine Ascents again and won’t hesitate to recommend your company.

My experience with Alpine Ascents in Ecuador was truly great.  To explain why is almost impossible because so many things made it a good experience.  All the climbers in our group were grateful for the attention to safety.  Having fun during the trip was another thing that was emphasized.  The trip wasn’t just about hustling up some mountain.  I sincerely look forward to climbing with Alpine Ascents in the future.

Based on my experiences with other guides services and speaking with other climbers, Alpine Ascents International is the only guide service I would use again. Our guides were nothing short of outstanding.

I’ve been exposed to a number of guide services and it would be hard for me to believe that I could find a better mountain guide than Willi.

Willi is without a doubt, the finest guide I have ever been associated with. He made this trip totally interesting and a real educational experience from a mountaineering standpoint.

I had a great time on the trip.  My guides are top notch people, they taught me a ton and made every experience enjoyable.  Alpine Ascents stands head and shoulders above any other guide service I have ever encountered.

This was an amazing trip all around, from the people, the accommodations, the food, the mountains, oh, and the climbing was good too!  Alpine Ascents always seems heads above most other organizations I’ve traveled with.

Excellent expedition. Well-planned and executed. Bonus of exposure to Ecuadorian culture. Guides were personable, hard working and fun. World class climbing.

Thomas A.

I felt like, with Jose Luis, I was in the hands of one of the best guides in Ecuador. He is fun to be with and had a great rapport with the group. The trip was extremely well-organized, and I had fun the entire time. Overall I thought the organization of the trip was flawless.
