Thank you for planning such a beautiful and educational trip. We really liked the country,specially the volcanoes. We think people are making a big mistake by just going to the Galapagos Islands. They should visit the mainland also.
Cris, Juan Fernando and Elisabeth were very knowledgable and fun to work with.

Tailor made

We can combine cultural and natural destinations for small or large groups, to fit into the dates that you want to travel and that will satisfy the expectations of the most demanding travellers.
