Tour Overview


This 22-day adventure in Ecuador takes us along the Amazon River and amid the Galapagos Islands, two destinations that are so different both from each other and from any other location on the globe, they seem to belong to other worlds. Professional tour guides lead us on a cruise through the Amazon where we have an opportunity to witness a land that is alive with a massive array of plant and animal species. A flock of multicoloured birds scattering in flight above our heads is just as much of an exotic sight as the many unique flowers that blanket the ground. Some of the surreal land structures of the Galapagos will make us feel as though we momentarily stepped off the face of the Earth and into a land of imagination. The crystal-clear waters seem to match the quality of the flawless beaches that radiate in the sun. We're then off to see the ancient ruins of the Ingapica in the Canar Valley. The most important and intriguing structure is the Temple of the Sun because of the lack of mortar used in its stonework. Experience the past meeting the present as we take a walk along the narrow cobblestone streets of Cuenca, once the site of an Inca settlement.

Diego is a sweetheart! He is very good in organizing, very knowledgeable and very good in explaining and pointing out things. He also is delightfully personable.

David H. (Salmon Arm, BC, CA)

Amazon Kichwa Ecolodge - excellent. The local guides presented a well organized set of activities and displayed good knowledge of the community and the goals of the community. The meals and presentation in the open air dining hall were excellent. Meeting some of the local community members and the children was a treat. Galapagos- a well organized program. Staff were excellent - knowledgeable, helpful and professional. Meals were good to excellent and again dining room staff did an excellent job. Simply a great experience.

Michael M. (Canmore, AB, CA)

Ecuador and this tour exceeded our expectations. It was like having four small trips in one. Jungle, Avenue of the Volcanoes, Galapagos, and the cities/countryside. Diego and his excitement over his country really sold this tour even more. A great leader.
