“I have used Latin Frontiers on three previous trips to Ecuador and Peru. Always a great experience, courteous, professional people. The itinerary was perfect and fast paced and included a lot of activities and sights and was well organized.  The Glacier Trip was very nice. Beautiful drive through the Argentine countryside and trip to Glacier. The Argentine people were so friendly and Silvia was a great guide!” – Paul Sevald (USA – November, 2021)

“The trip was truly memorable and I loved every minute of it. Marcelo and Mauricio were wonderful, very welcoming, and super helpful as well as friendly. Everything was so well organized and I really loved that I did not have to think about what to do or how I was going to get anywhere. It felt very individualized, very personal. We were treated like very important people. It was great. Loved that we got to see SO many places. I feel that I toured almost half of the country. Loved that we had someone meet us at the airport, that we had our own personal guide, that we just got up and went. We got to experience Ecuador from tourist areas to not so touristy areas. The country is a treasure and I am not sure people truly know that a place like this exists.” – Joanna & Ysmael  (USA – November, 2021)

“I would rate my overall trip as absolutely excellent!!  All my expectations were met and I have no complaints whatsoever. I thought the tour was well organized and all the pickups for the tours and from and to the airport were on time and there was so much to see and learn about Ecuador while on the different tours and visiting museums.” – Larry Harris  (USA – October, 2021)

“Two and a half weeks of adventure in Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands with family. Excellent company, created a once in a lifetime trip for our family! We loved every minute. Endless cervezas, rafting in the amazon, ziplining, snorkeling with penguins and sea lions, waterfalls, hiking and delicious food. We really appreciated the attention to all travel details. Absolutely amazing culture!” – Jessica Waller & Cory Nathan  (USA – October, 2021)

“Beal & I had such a great time from start to finish! I learned of Latin Frontiers just by good luck. As I told Marcello every detail of the trip was meticulously arranged and made for a very easy travel experience with variety, great drivers, local color, fascinating sites. Thank you so much for organizing one of life’s best trips!” – Nancy Mikesell  (USA – September, 2021)

“The trip activities and organization of the tour was perfect!  They listened to what we wanted included in our trip and found ways to make it all happen.  All of the guides on both land and sea were phenomenal.  They inspired us with their love of the country and were eager to share all of the information with us. I also felt they were always looking out for our safety and wellbeing. And made sure, each day, that we were happy with the trip.” – Sherri Esmus  (USA – August, 2021)

“A very good trip – everything went smoothly and was well-organized.  The trip was also flexible. I had a great guide – knowledgeable about history and culture – easy to converse with in Spanish. Allowed me to make some changes in the schedule.” – Emily Brown  (USA – August, 2021)

“Latin Frontiers did an excellent job organizing our trip to the Galapagos and mainland Ecuador, despite the difficulties imposed by the COVID-19 pandemic. The staff helped us choose a Galapagos cruise that fit our interests and our budget, and also did a great job organizing other activities for us in Quito and in Mindo (especially birding in Mindo). Our trip was safe and very well managed.” – Liz Velikonja  (USA – August, 2021)

customer review

“This  was such an amazing experience! I had been focused on the Galapagos and had the land package of Ecuador as an afterthought. Our guide Tomas Palmas is an amazing human being and a credit to Ecuador. He loves his country, knows a ton and made us love it too!!! I never realized what a wonderful trip I was going on. My focus was the Galapagos and that turned out to be a secondary feature of this wonderful trip. Just keep doing what you did for us and keep using the same people and resources.” – Charles & Ronda Mills  (USA – July, 2021)

customer review

“Our trip was so fun! My husband and I took four of our young adult grandchildren , and we had such a great time. We did fun activities, learned about the culture and history of Ecuador, and experienced both mountains and jungle. We were impressed with Latin Frontiers. The trip was well-organized, Marcelo helped with Art’s lost baggage, everything from planning, paying, arriving, and leaving went smoothly.” – Lesli Unrein  (USA – June, 2021)

“The overall booking of our entire trip to Ecuador & the Galapagos Islands was excellent. Marcelo was an excellent host & overall excellent guide to set up our dream vacation to the Ecuador/Galapagos Islands.  He literally took care of everything we just needed to enjoy.  A trip of a lifetime – many great memories & photos. ” – Bonnie Hurley  (USA – March, 2021)

“Great trip through Ecuador and experiencing their culture and natural treasures. Trip was very well organized and thought out.  Tour plan was followed and had a good amount of leisure time. Our favourite time of the trip was the stay at the Casa del Suizo because of the uniqueness of the location and the tours available through the resort.  Was unlike where we have ever been.”  – Schulze Family  (USA – Jan, 2021)

customer review

“We loved the Galápagos. I’ve attached one of my favorite pictures because it makes me smile. The hotel was great- a perfect base for exploring the town. Our guides were excellent and got us where we needed to be exactly when we needed to be there. They didn’t have a wetsuit at the shop that fit Mark, so Dario volunteered to lend his equipment, which was above and beyond. We saw a lot of wildlife and took some great hikes.”  – Mark & Joanne Day  (USA – Jan, 2021)

Dan Smith

“Enjoyed the service and experience! All services agreed on were all met satisfactory.”

The favorite part of the trip? “Having a beach house for a week in Jama which was nice. Ocean was safe and fun to play in.” Dan Smith (USA – Jan, 2020)


“Great company and amazing trip! I loved the options presented by Latin Frontiers and was able to create a customized experience. All of our guides were great and knowledgeable. Will definitely be returning!

The favorite part of the trip? Getting married! One of the most amazing moments of our lives. Although, marriage aside, even though it’s very difficult to pick, the night hike in the Amazon was both of our favorites” – Anna Giordano (USA – Sept, 2019)


Latin Frontiers helped us pack as much sightseeing and adventure as possible into our two days. Our guide, was completely reliable and spoke very good English. He knowledgeably guided us on fun adventures, made good suggestions for additional stops, and landed us in good restaurants. We loved the beautiful Pailon del Diablo and the extreme adventures in Banos. Quilotoa was also beautiful and the drive there more scenic than expected.” – Tonya & Jim Frederic (USA – May, 2019)


“The favorite part of the trip was touring Ecuador, we felt welcome everywhere. The accommodations, shopping and food were superb. In Ecuador Eddy and Pat were fabulous. Informative with just the right amount of humor. They were very helpful and willing to adapt. The van provided was comfortable, clean and had lots of room.  They took us to great local restaurants and were friendly. We would gladly travel with them again. In Peru every guide we had was well informed and obviously very proud of their country. They were efficient but we never felt we got to know anything about them. By the end of the tour we were sorry to say goodbye to Eddy, Pat and Marcelo & his family.“ – Christine & Bryce Hallick (Canada – February, 2019)


This trip was put together with us personally in mind. It was exactly what we asked for and the organization was perfect. All guides and arrangements were great and all spoke great English with good knowledge of their city. These are the people that made our stay in Ecuador so worthwhile. They were warm, personable and proud of the cities they represent. It was very apparent they loved what they do. We enjoyed meeting each one of them and sharing a wonderful experience. We enjoyed seeing the cities in the mountains and then going to the coast. We wish we were able to spend more time in Ecuador. Your time and effort you put into setting up our trip far exceeded our expectations. We could never have put together a trip like this together on our own. Thank you for such a wonderful time.” – Randy & Karen Powell (USA – February, 2019)


The Retiring in Ecuador trip was fabulous. I can’t say enough good things. The tour was very professionally organized. We felt like royalty. The favorite part of our trip was the horseback riding at Cotopaxi and as well in Vilcabamba – and the hiking. We enjoyed as well Baños and the Jungle Lodge very much.  We felt safe during the whole trip.“  – Ted Anderson (Canada – January, 2019)


“Latin Frontiers offered, and gave, excellent one-to-one service from first contact, to arrival, during the trip, and after the trip. All activities were organized well. The guides and drivers were excellent. The cars were clean and the drivers very safe. At Jamu Lodge, our guide was very knowledgeable and patient. We are grateful that Marcelo followed up every part of the trip to make sure that we were happy.” – Louise Schulz (USA – December, 2018)


Well-designed active tour, we had a fantastic time!! The guide, Ruben, was very accommodating to our tastes and schedules – rose farm, vegetarian food etc. He was full of information and overall made it a very pleasant trip.“  – Usha Mohan (USA – December, 2018)


“Latin frontiers had everything lined up and it made the trip stress free.
It was truly magical, so organized! Better than I could have imagined.
” – Ashley Feldman (USA – December, 2018)


The Chile Adventure was my second trip with Latin Frontiers. I really enjoyed the tours (Atacama, Moon Valley, Lagunas Altiplánicas and Geyser del Tatio tour). Amazing Natural views, mixed with enthusiastic guides & premium service: The bus was clean and comfortable; most activities where sharp in terms of punctuality, guides where really enthusiastic, funny & entertaining, well informed and gave really good geological and historical explanation of the area. The views in northern Chile are too beautiful for words, so that makes it an unforgettable experience if you love sightseeing.“  – Daniela Ranz (Mexico – October, 2018)


“The activities and tours offered were great. They were varied and not overdone. We were always given an option of touring or not, depending on our interests. And the days were always full.
I loved that the hotels each had their own individual charm. There was always someone that spoke English. Our 3 guides all seemed to know everything about everything! Next time I plan a trip I will start with looking at locations that Latin Frontiers has tours to. I can’t say enough good about them.” – Sandra Deline (Canada – August, 2018)


“Everything was thoroughly organized and we were totally relaxed. The tours provided were interesting and informative. The guides were very well-informed and knowlegeable. For this trip I was happy to get an overview of the highland area.  Darlene Sherwood (Canada – August, 2018)


Highly recommend Latin Frontiers. After checking several other companies, Latin Frontier has much more to offerThere were no unpleasant surprises, they were on time, honest, courteous , friendly. Amazing prices. In love with Ecuador, very diverse country with much beautiful places to visit.  Ana-Maria Mello (USA – June, 2018)


“My husband and I had a fantastic experience using Latin Frontiers! From our very first contact with them to our drop off at the airport for our return trip home. Everything was A class, ran smoothly, the friendliest of people, very knowledgeable and eager to share their country and answer questions for you. Also, very accommodating to change things up to the trip YOU want if traveling on a private tour. We had the most amazing and fun time! We will be using Latin Frontiers again and that says a lot because we’ve traveled for years and this was the first time we’ve ever used a company and didn’t DIY.” – Kim Martinez (USA – June, 2018)


I had an amazing experience, even though I travelled alone, both guides were great companions. Ecuador is a really great place to visit, an amazing mix of natural wonders and Colonial spots.” – Daniela Ranz (Mexico – June, 2018)


Two years in a row I had the pleasure to booked a trip to Ecuador with Latin Frontiers. Everything was top notch, they are extremely professional and service oriented. They met all my expectations and more!! A big thanks to Marcelo and Isabel for planning my trip and special thanks to my guide Ruben, who was very knowledgeable, organized, funny and made everything enjoyable, he went out of his way to ensure that I had the full immersion of the natural beauty, history and culture of Ecuador. I highly recommend Latin Frontiers they are outstanding!– Ely Thomas (Canada – March, 2018)


“We have no hesitation in recommending your firm and the great driver we had. He was very knowledgeable of the country and was very flexible in rearranging itinerary based on our own personal interests.  Unlike a regular bus tour we were able to stop at our own convenience and take all the time we wanted and had such great personal service.” – Randolph Stanley  (Canada –  Jan, 2018)


“We had a great time in Ecuador. Latin Frontiers was very nice to work with.  I found them to be very organized, knowledgeable, and friendly.  Our guides were always on time and ready to go with a smile.” Scott Shute (USA – Dec, 2017)


“Our guide ensured we had a great time and enjoyed our activities. When we were at the different activities he never looked at his watch or told us we had a time limit, it was always take your time and do not hurry. We really appreciated the fact that he was flexible and offered to do things unplanned. We had a great time and we were treated great. We are beginning to look at the Best of Peru for August 2019, so that is testimony to how much we appreciated the total tour of the Best of Ecuador.” Gary Villereal (USA – Nov, 2017)


My experience with Latin Frontiers was over the top wonderful and was far better than any other adventure travel assistance I have ever used.  They were not only extremely knowledgeable but personable, to a point of feeling like I made some great new friends.  I am a single women who was delighted to have someone show me around Ecuador and feel completely safe and entertained. I found them on the web and decided to take the chance with not that much to go on other than how well they handled my endless questions. They surely incorporate that personal touch for an individual vacation  I was so glad I took the chance with Latin Frontiers.  Loved Them!!!!  I will use them again for future travel.”   (USA – Oct/Nov, 2017)

“I enjoyed my first visit to Ecuador and I look forward to going back. The staff of Latin Frontiers are first class! They were very responsive and organized.” – Joanne Edwards (USA – July, 2017)


“Excellent! Our first trip to South America and we loved Ecuador. The Galapagos were incredible and we feel very privileged to have been able to visit them – fascinating.”  Simon Harding (England – July, 2017)


“Our trip to Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands in particular was amazing. It will rank as one of the best vacations we have ever taken, and we feel fortunate to have had such an incredible experience. Latin Frontiers was excellent in all respects:  from setting up the trip to match what we had in mind, making valuable suggestions along the way and providing flawless service while we were in Ecuador.” Rose Politzer (USA – May, 2017)


“Loved our trip to Ecuador, we want to go back next year! Latin Frontiers took care of everything, we did not have to worried about anything, just enjoyed the trip. You guys are AMAZING! Thanks everyone for such a great trip and wonderful memories that we will cherished forever.” – Elizabeth Thomas (Canada – Feb 2017)


“Ecuador is a wonderful country with so much diversity to explore. The overall service and reliability provided by Latin Frontiers was highly satisfactory.” – Paige Stringer (USA – Feb, 2017)


“We have been traveling for years. Ecuador is one of the most beautiful countries we have ever visited and Latin Frontiers is the best tour company we have ever used. From the moment we walked off of the plane until we returned home we felt welcome.  Our driver and our guide were friendly, efficient and very proud of their country. Everyone went out of their way to make us feel at home. The hotels, tours and meals went above and beyond our highest expectations. We received great value for the money spent!  We highly recommend Latin Frontiers and we are looking forward to touring Peru with them. Thank you Marcelo for making this a holiday we will always remember in a country we will return to.”  Christine & Bryce Hallick (Canada – Jan, 2017)


“It is the best trip we’ve ever experienced. It perfectly fit our needs and the team answered all of our questions about Ecuador. I could enjoy beautiful scenery, historic buildings and cities or haciendas in the country, incredible markets, quaint small towns, great volcanoes, or small creatures and plants in many places. The people of Ecuador, however, made this trip. I’ve never met so many friendly, laid back people anywhere. That’s a treasure that exceeds every other asset a place can show a visitor. Latin Frontiers has exceeded my wildest expectations for this trip. The planning went very well with us being able to arrange what looked like the best trip. I don’t think I’d be wrong in saying we’d both love to live in Ecuador.” Reg Prewitt (USA – Jan, 2017)


“It was great! I knew what I wanted to do in Ecuador and they helped me put together a perfect personalized trip for my family. They did everything the company said they would do, including responding to cell phone calls to confirm or clarify questions.” – Leeann &  Peter Thomas (Alaska – Nov, 2016)


“AWESOME!!!!! The trip was amazing and wouldn’t have been possible without Latin Frontiers. Pick-ups were timely, everyone was where they said they would be, our guides were very knowledgeable and friendly.  We didn’t have to worry about a single thing while we were there – just woke up ready for the day and Latin Frontiers handled the rest.” – Alicia Perry (USA – Nov, 2016)


“Hotels used were excellent! Cities booked were good since there was an expat population & the couple we had lunch with was wonderful with all the information they gave us. The activities included were good to a point & especially as the guide told us about the “ice cream” hotel which was a highlight of the trip for many of us! The minute I fell in love with Ecuador & knew I wanted to move there was when we arrived at the Hacienda Pinsaqui so no need to say any more. We were treated like family & the hot water bottle in bed at night was icing on the cake.” – Kim Hegazy (Canada – Sept, 2016)


“It was an absolutely amazingly glorious trip! Best vacation I’ve ever taken! Everyone I worked with at Latin Frontiers was fantastic: in planning the trip from Quito to Cuenca Henrik seemed to know exactly what type of activities I would want to do and came up with the perfect itinerary, Ruben was a great guide—from finding good places to eat, dirt roads to take so we wouldn’t travel the same route twice, always agreeable to stopping whenever I wanted to take a photo and also suggesting places to stop. And I appreciated the fact that I had Marcello’s phone number—he called me several times to check on me. Furthermore, the trip from Quito to Cuenca was the perfect mix of current culture, historical Ecuador, and the scenic beauty of Ecuador. The guides were all very knowledgeable, friendly, personable, their English fantastic… Even the driver, who only gave me rides to or from the airport, made them enjoyable by giving me a “city tour” on the way.” – Debby Rader (USA – 2016)


“It was spectacular. Latin Frontiers planned the trip for us in great detail and delivered it as promised…100%. Latin Frontiers does a great job. The team answered every question we had and made every arrangement we needed, and always very promptly.  We even received a phone call mid-trip from one of the company executives just to affirm that we were enjoying and satisfied with our trip. Top notch!” – Robert Sholar  (USA – Aug, 2016)
