The Galapagos Islands are a diverse set of islands off the coast of Ecuador full of distinct wildlife, idyllic beaches, and incomparable visitor sites that offer a range of interesting activities—from hiking, to snorkeling, close-ups with pre-historic looking animals, kayaking and treks across volcanic islands—to name a few of the endless possibilities. This one-of-a-kind destination is a must when visiting Ecuador.
Andando Tours is the result of Fiddi Angermeyer's unyielding love for Ecuador's natural and cultural heritage. Having been born and raised on the Galapagos, and from childhood taking part in his parent's drive to show the wonders of this fascinating paradise.
Fiddi understood that his calling was to expand a small family business into a world-class tourism operation that understands how to embrace the challenge of sustaining a fragile environment.
In 1992, as his success solidified, Andando Tours was born, out of new desires to expand the company's horizons, offering additional tourism products with the same philosophy of maintaining high standards and environmental consciousness.

In an area roughly the size of Britain, Ecuador combines coast, rugged mountains, jungle, and the Galapagos. Sun-bathe on Pacific-facing beaches, climb volcanoes or hike around Andean lakes, go zip-lining in cloud forest or canoe up an Amazon tributary, or wildlife-watch in the Galapagos: these 7-day itineraries are full of astonishing variety.

I wish we had known the physical level required for the trip. I found it to be more physical than expected - - not undo-able, but would have appreciated knowing that walking sticks over the lava beds are suggested and vaulting from the panga to the yacht is a 2-3 times a day requirement.
Tariq was responsive and had an answer for our questions within a few hours every time.
