Alpacas in Ecuador
 'All you need is Ecuador' - this quote could not be more true. Ecuador offers everything that a traveller could possibly ask for; the Amazon Rainforest, volcanoes, white sandy beaches on the Galapagos Islands, and much more.

Favourites from the agency
  • The unique water-filled volcano crater, Quilotoa, is one of our absolute favourite places in Ecuador!
  • Of all the amazing birdlife in the Galapagos Islands, the colourful blue footed boobies are the ones that amaze us the most.
  • The amazing sea-landscapes of El Cajas National Park is simply too unique to describe, you have to experience it in person to believe it.
  • The playful sea lions on the Galapagos are a sight to see! You can snorkel or scuba dive with them around the islands.

Our agency has been certified with the European 'Tour Cert' label, which ensures that all of our business is conducted in a sustainable way. This means that we have to follow guidelines when it comes to our travellers, the trips we organise, and even internally within our office. Here are some examples of the daily work we do to promote sustainable practices: when we have larger groups travelling, we provide them with re-usable water bottles to reduce the use of plastic. On the Galapagos Islands, we collaborate with a small group of fishermen on San Cristobal, rather than working with internationally-run providers. In our office, we use environmentally-friendly products such as organic soap, and we run a mandatory training session to understand and apply the recycling system in the office. See more

    Best parts:
    Everything was well organized and stress free. Accommodations were just as requested - small, local establishments. Guides were all knowledgeable, and with good English. Sofia's planning, from our NYEve arrival in Peru to my departure, was first class. Thank you.
    Worst parts:
    The long, overnight bus ride, which was actually 2 separate buses, with long wait in between transfers. I was dreading the return trip, but it went much faster, on better buses, with hardly any waiting around during transfers. Not being able to get any of the ATM machines in Galápagos or Quito to give us cash. Got sols from machine in Cusco, which we spent while in Peru. We landed in Galápagos with $300 cash, assuming we could pay their entry costs using Visa. Instead had to use $280 cash. Even though guides in Galápagos and Quito took us to many machines we were unable to get more cash.
    Summary:
    Relied on Sofia to pick destinations, as we had never been to S.A. Machu Picchu, the Guest House and the guide were excellent. The Catamaran, crew and guide in Galápagos also first class.

Same for Quito, especially Cuba Guest House and guide, Freddy. Apart from the overnight bus ride, my venture into the Amazon was enjoyable and educational, in small group of 8, with Ebi, the most experienced guide there.See more

    Best parts:
    I loved that we could customize the itinerary to suit our specific needs (3 senior women travelling together) without compromising the quality and important aspects of the trip. We were surprised that the 7 days touring mainland Ecuador was just as fascinating as the 5 days on Galapagos Islands. We can't help but attribute this to our amazing guide, Fausto , who not only knew the itinerary destinations inside out, but also seemed to know everything about the history, culture, geology and highlights of his country. He was passionate about it and that is an exceptional quality in a guide.
    Worst parts:
    Nothing to say here. It was all good! Perhaps getting on and off water crafts was a bit challenging, but that was our problem, not yours. We wished we could have seen the huge colorful land iguanas, but had we done our research, we would know they were not on our particular agenda. Everything else showed up in living color!
    Summary:
    I particularly wanted to go to the Galapagos Islands and my 2 travel partners were happy with the choice.

I stumbled upon Evaneos while I was researching back in January and I really liked your website, and the option to customize a bit. Everything went seamlessly on our 2 week adventure, and we truly loved the variety of accommodations, even and especially having a couple of nights with our own rooms, as opposed to 3 beds, one room. Pretty awesome and much appreciated! We were amazed that there was ALWAYS someone to meet & greet us in both Ecuador and our specific island destinations. There was one time change, and a couple of driver name changes from the voucher package we received, but we have absolutely no complaints and only kudos to *** for making this an outstanding holiday for 3 - 70+ year old women. Totally memorable!See more
