Our Galapagos Tours

Combine a guided tour of Ecuador or Peru's mainland with a visit to the Galapagos Islands, which are rich in wildlife. We offer three Handpicked small group tours: Ecuador Highlands & Galapagos Islands, Peru & Galapagos Discovery, both of which include a 7-night cruise onboard the MC Galapagos Seaman Journey, and Ecuador & Galapagos Island Hopping, which includes 3-4 star hotels on the islands. Alternatively, our 16-day Wilds of Ecuador itinerary includes a private tour of Ecuador's mainland, including the Amazon Rainforest, and a 4-night Eastern Islands Galapagos Cruise aboard the La Pinta yacht. These packages include accommodation, transport and guided tours, as well as a variety of meals and airport transfers, making it the ideal Ecuador trip!

Take a Private Tour to Ecuador

We provide a variety of options in Ecuador for people who prefer to travel individually, with only their friends or family, rather than on a group tour. These tours can be bought off the shelf, with a variety of lodging options, accompanied by a guide, and including airport transfers. Guided tours are available in Quito, Cuenca, the Andean highlands, and lesser-known sites like Mindo and Baños. Why not add a Galápagos Island trip to your Ecuador private tour? The Galápagos Islands provide unrivalled opportunity to see unusual fauna and beautiful natural landscapes, making your journey even more memorable.

The Best of Ecuador

With pristine landscapes of great contrast, colourful indigenous tribes and market towns, unique and inspiring wildlife, and superb colonial architecture, Ecuador full of attractions. To help you get started we've compiled a list of favourite destinations from our Ecuador tours.

Quito

Steeped in history, capital city Quito demands a visit from anyone passing through the country. A combination of colonial and more modern buildings gives the city an incredibly diverse landscape, especially with the Andes reigning supreme in the background. The city is a staggering 9,350 feet above sea level and the only place on earth where you can stand with one foot on each side of the equator!

Galapagos Islands

Known for the role they played informing Charles Darwin and his theory of evolution, the Galapagos Islands are a living museum of natural history. With roughly 95% of its pre-human wildlife diversity still roaming the islands and its surrounding waters, the islands make up the most pristine ecosystem in the world. Licensed guides take explorers on tours to acquaint themselves with fearless animals including giant tortoises, sea lions, marine iguanas and more.

Otavalo

The market which spreads across Otavalo is a hive of activity and has single-handedly put this city on the map. The market offers some fabulous shopping opportunities and brilliant cultural displays of traditional crafts and costumes. The Otavaleno people have retained virtually all of their traditional heritage, making the city a telling insight into the country’s rich history and culture.
