Andes to Amazon
5 - Excellent
“This was an excellent introduction to this very diverse country, including different landscapes, culture and wildlife.”
Amazing Ecuador
5 - Excellent
“If it's variety you're after, in one country, with no worries about getting around, this is the trip to choose. Every day brings something different, whether at fairly high altitude in the snowy peaks of Chimborazo National Park or the sultry heat of the Amazon basin. Breathtaking scenery between the destinations, coupled with stops in quaint market towns en route, mean the travelling is never hard work. The local people you meet and perhaps buy goods from are also friendly and welcoming.”
Fantastic trip!

“Ecuador is definitely worth to discover, it's natural beauty is absolutely fantastic! Unique geographical location is giving a chance to experience different climate zones, eco systems and even to reach the highest point on the planet (Chimborazo mountain). The journey over all was even better than we expected: very knowledgeable and professional guide, great accommodations, delicious food, wonderful hiking routes and other activities. It is very adventurous and full of excitement trip, where you can enjoy wildlife, visit historical sites, meet local indigenous people and learn about their customs and traditions. It deserves every single penny we paid, we enjoyed this tour a lot and looking forward for opportunity to come again!”
