I just finished the 4-day Tren Crucero from Guayaquil to Quito. And yes, the first day was amazing, with very varied sceneries and an exquisite visit of the cocoa plantation and lunch in La Danesa. That of course put the expectations high. Unfortunately we were...More

Dress in layers for it can get chilly. We took the line from Quito to El Boliche and the landscapes were wonderful. Much better view than you can get from driving the highway. The local people were out as the train rolled by the farms...More

This was a great way to see parts of Ecuador. We left at 11:30 and got back close to 5. It can get cool so dress in layers. The staff gives some good insight into the region.

This is a great way too see the countryside. I think too many people fly into Ecuador and then off to the Galapagos. We are so glad we took the extra days to do the train trip. We booked because of the Devil's Nose but...More
