By doing a private tour in Ecuador you will be able to experience the country on your own terms. Instead of having to compromise, not being able to stop where you want or only see the mainstream, a private tour will allow you to experience the country in a more in-depth and extensive way. So by the end of your stay, you will be able to feel like you’ve truly gotten a feeling and understanding of the country, rather than having been shipped around according to someone else’s view of what makes a good holiday.
However, we also offer group tours options such as our Retirement group Tour, which is organized three times a year. So with these small group tours you get the chance to meet like-minded travelers.
Ecuador: The local flights are always included in the Ecuador packages. We don’t include the internationals because you can find better deals on your own (i.e. miles and more points).
For Ecuador domestic flights each passenger can take one checked bag that can weigh 23 kilos (50,7 lb). You can also bring one carry on item with a maximum weight of 8 kilos (17,6 lb) as well as one small personal item (camera, laptop, purse. etc.).
Please be sure to check that you have a valid passport that will be valid for at least 6 month after your scheduled date of travel back to your home country.

A visa is only required for visitors of the following countries: Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Kenya, Nepal, Nigeria, Pakistan, Senegal, Cuba and Somalia. The traveler must also hold proof of return, or onward journey. We recommend all passengers to check with the respective authorities in their country before departure.

If any portion of the trip that is cancelled by the passengers once the overall trip has started, those will not be refundable and the customer will forfeit 100% of that portion of the trip that was not operated.
You will always have private transportation in Ecuador mainland and group transportation in Galapagos Islands. The private transportation could be a car from 1 to 3 passengers. But if you come with a group of 4 or more passengers, then you will have a minivan for the entire tour. All of our transportations are confortable and safe.
According to the National Assembly of Ecuador, all travelers entering the country will be required to show proof of either public or private health insurance for their entire stay in Ecuador. If the traveler cannot provide proof of said insurance, immigration officers could deny the traveler entrance into the country. Please, take the necessary precautions regarding the insurance in order to avoid any inconveniences when you travel to Ecuador.
If your primary medical insurance doesn’t include traveling abroad or is very limited, you may want to consider purchasing overseas medical insurance.
For US citizens, consult the US State Department’s medical insurance overseas page.
There is no best time to visit Ecuador; as it is an all year-round destination since we do have springtime weather 365 days a year. The high seasons are only dictated by holiday periods, so it is always good to book your trip with enough time ahead.
Ecuador is a fantastic destination for year-round exploration. The weather variations usually are the result of regional differences and micro-climates rather than clearly defined seasons.
In the highlands, for example, although there is a drier season from June to September, the ‘four seasons in a day’ phenomenon can happen at any time, so you should not limit your travel planning to just one time of year. The country’s cultural attractions can be enjoyed at any time, as can hiking or gentle touring in the Avenue of the Volcanoes. Similarly, the wildlife of mainland Ecuador can be enjoyed year-round, with the Amazon and the cloud forests delighting visitors whatever the season.
Ecuador uses the U.S. Dollar as its local currency. We recommend that you do not bring to much cash to Ecuador. You will have ample opportunities to withdraw cash from ATM machines all over Ecuador.
Vaccines are not required to travel to Ecuador but can be taken if you want, before your trip.
Many folks ask us about tipping guides. Tipping is strictly optional since the guides are paid for their work. Most people do tip them if the guide does a good job and we will leave that totally up to your discretion. As a rule of thumb we use $10 to $20 per full day based on the service as a reference.
