Ecuador & the Galapagos

Ecuador’s attractions are unexpected and diverse, combining many of South America’s best features: a buzzy colonial capital, comfortable Andean haciendas, rare biodiversity and indigenous markets and towns.

The Galapagos have long been Ecuador’s main draw, but Quito’s gleaming new airport and the arrival of some impressive eco lodges and highland haciendas suggest a country very much on the move.

  • Now that I am back in the UK, I just wanted to thank you for all you did to arrange our trip. All your arrangements worked faultlessly and you gave us a good mix of glimpses into Argentina and Uruguay from swimming in the S Atlantic to trekking in the foothills of the Andes. Thank you for a very memorable holiday, and for the very handsome book.
