Tamer Obeid

A traveler myself since 1997, blessed to have had unforgettable experiences in different parts of this world that hasn’t ceased to amaze me! Originally from the middle east, I have lived in the UAE, Qatar, Malaysia and Turkey. Landed in Ecuador almost 4 years ago, it didn’t take long to start getting dazzled by its pristine and incredibly diverse array of wonders, its intriguing culture and the warmth of its people! Each passing day I feel it’s becoming closer to being home, with an increasing urge to help others have a taste of its spectacular beauty!

What places and activities do you specialize in?

"Being in this astonishing country, Ecuador, we specialize in making your dream journey come true. Allow us some of your time and we will custom-design you a trip of a lifetime! A trip where you could be hiking down the mighty Chimborazo today; wearing your thick sweater and insulated jacket, feeling the cold winds descending from the Andean peaks! And exactly on the next day, you will be snorkeling or diving in the Pacific Ocean surrounded by a bunch of jolly Galapagos Sea Lions and endemic species of marine life while Frigatebirds are flying above your head! It is to that extent what this mega-diverse geography, a convenient infrastructure and relatively close distances help us to achieve."

How did you get involved in travel?

"I was lucky enough to be able to start traveling at a very early age. For different reasons related to my initial career, I found myself moving from one country to another, admiring their various cultures and unique experiences each generously offered. At one point, I was granted the invaluable chance of joining a magnificent team and becoming a travel specialist where I can combine two of my top passions; travel and customer service that is. Since then, I hold dear every chance I have to draw a smile on my travelers’ faces, share knowledge with them and help them have memorable times."

Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.

"As each travel experience I had throughout the years possesses a certain spot in my heart and memories, it is not easy to favorite one over the other. Each welcoming face I met, scenery I gazed at and adventure I sighed after has its own distinguished contribution. Whether visiting an indigenous community in the Ecuadorian Amazon and learning about their customs, or whitewater rafting in Jatunyacu river, all are experiences I aspire to share with our passionate travelers."
