Originally from Germany, I have traveled around the world and lived in Australia, Bangladesh, and finally Ecuador. Ecuador is such a diverse and beautiful country, so I soon fell deeply in love with it. From rainforest to the highest volcanoes – there is something for everyone. I've lived here for 3 years, and I am enjoying every day in this small but megadiverse country.

What places and activities do you specialize in?

"We specialize in Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands. From trekking or climbing tours in the Andes up to adventurous days in the Amazon rainforest – everything is possible! Choose from luxury or tourist class cruises in Galapagos, or go on an Island Hopping if you prefer to spend the nights on land instead of the sea. Our tours are tailor-made and depend on the wishes and preferences of our guests. We will make each and every visit to Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands special and unique! "

How did you get involved in travel?

"As a child, I dreamed about distant places and other cultures. I wanted to explore everything and see the farthest corners of our planet. So I took the first chance (and my backpack) and went to Australia. Since then, my love for traveling has only grown, and I have visited several more countries around the globe. For me, traveling is about widening your horizons, seeing the world with other eyes, and meet the most fascinating people. I want to share my experiences to create the same happiness in other travelers that I have felt. "

Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.

"There are just too many life-changing travel experiences to pick just one! It is everything: from a simple, pure-hearted smile of a local up to a multi-week road trip through the Outback without running water and electricity. While traveling, every single day you make memories you will never forget! "

Galapagos Land-Based Tours: Suggested Itineraries

Planning to follow in the footsteps of Charles Darwin and spot the extraordinary wildlife on the Galapagos Islands? A great way to make this journey is on a land-based tour: sleeping in hotels by night and shuttling between the islands by day. In between, you’ll have the chance to spot giant tortoises in their native habitat, snorkel with sea lions, hike up an active volcano and spend time experiencing the culture of these Enchanted Islands.

Traveler: Jessica H. - Local specialist: Linda Schulz

Linda was outstanding, she was quick at answering all my questions and made sure I was in the loop when itineraries changed.

All the guides did a wonderful job explaining Ecuador and the different locations that are popular to visit or that make Ecuador unique.

The city tour was nice, I really enjoyed the mitad del mundo museum - very informative.
Otavalo, Cotopaxi, Quilotoa, and Baños were all wonderful experiences!

I was very thankful that Linda was able to connect with my hotel and ensure that I had a to go breakfast on the days I left early. I love breakfast!!
