SMILE. YOU’VE LANDED IN ECUADOR.

Although Ecuador is one of South America’s smallest nations—roughly the size of Colorado—its beauty is totally out of proportion to its size. The country is an experiment in compact loveliness; no space has been wasted. Each turn brings an unforgettable encounter, a stunning vista or the adventure of a lifetime.

Ecuador is really four different destinations magically melded together. The Andes divide the mainland north-south into three regions: The Pacific Coast, Andean Sierra, and Amazon Basin.

The country’s fourth region, the Galapagos Islands, is 600 miles offshore.

Each region has its own spirit and attractions. Each will make you wish you had more vacation time.

MACHU PICCHU

First light at Machu Picchu is an unforgettable experience. At dawn, the site is often concealed by low clouds. As sun rises, the mists slowly dissipate to reveal walls and plazas—first in glimpses, then in majesty.

The trip was a huge success. Galapagos was perfect, and Peru was great–not easy for a family of 20. The hotels were amazing–each truly great. The guides you arranged could not have been more kind and helpful. Your on-the-ground team was fantastic–very knowledgeable and accommodating. Nothing but totally positive things to say; I have been bragging about the trip to everyone we know. It was beautifully organized–the trip of a lifetime. A wonderful introduction to countries you love, and now we know why!

We returned yesterday from our trip and I wanted to let you know that it was absolutely amazing!  There is not a single thing on the itinerary that we would change.  The guides were knowledgeable, friendly, and prompt.  The hotels were beautiful, the food delicious and the pace of the activities was perfect for us. Thank you so much for making our trip such a fantastic experience.
