• Get way off-the-beaten track in Ecuador.

  • Wide variety of wildlife to spot.

  • Professional, bilingual guides show you the way.

  • Chance to horse ride as well as hike.

Everything worked out really well. We were met at the airport and each day our drivers picked us up as expected. The organisation was brilliant.
