We’re delighted to be adding Ecuador & the Galapagos Islands to our exciting range of South American destinations.
Ecuador – though small in size – is full of fascinating culture and spectacular landscapes, with everything from volcanoes to cloud forests and Amazonian jungle. You’ll be able to choose from a medley of unique accommodation and experiences, whether its a jungle hike or a cosy stay in a spa town.
We’re also very proud to announce that we’ll be partnering with Intrepid Travel to look after our Rickshaw travellers as they explore the wildlife nirvana which is the Galapagos Islands. As one of the top eco-friendly operators for Galapagos cruises and land tours, we think they’re the perfect people to guide our travellers around these incredible islands.
Can’t wait to get planning? Feel free to give us a call on 01273 322398 and we’ll talk you through what’s coming up.
