Visiting the beautiful, welcoming country of Ecuador - Jun 10 - Jun 21, 2021

Traveler: Jackie L. - Local specialist: Mathias Onisseit

Would highly recommend traveling to the beautiful country of Ecuador. The country is welcoming and beautiful, and the people are even more so. We felt safe and well taken care of the entire trip. Our local specialist, Mathias, took care of all the planning/bookings. The local people, drivers, and guides could not be more genuine lovely people.

We visited the Amazon for 4 days, Quito for 2 days, and the Galapagos for 5 days. It felt like the perfect amount of time in each location, the only downside was the amount of travel time between locations. I would absolutely recommend visiting Ecuador, and all it has to offer.

Will be returning soon!

Thank you Jackie for sharing your experience here in Ecuador with other travelers! The entire team is very glad to hear that you enjoyed your time here and that everything was as planned (or even better).
Regarding the amount of travel time between the different parts of the country, this was mainly due to the pandemic situation, which still makes air travel difficult to some locations sometimes, as was the case for your trip to the rainforest, which is why we took you there by private scenic drive as discussed previously. As for the Galapagos Islands, they can only be reached by plane as they are located quite far off the Pacific Coast, which is why it is recommendable planning for at least 5 days there (as you did) or better even more if time allows!

We are looking forward to having you back here soon, maybe once things are back to the (new) normal, so you can see the rest of this beautiful country!

Greetings from Quito,
Mathias
