Thank you guys for showing me the best of the best excursions in Ecuador. Little did I know that I would see one of the most interesting countries in the world. Why do I say it's the most interesting country in the world? Ecuador actually means equator, which makes sense since the equator line runs through the country. It was very special to get to experience the equator line even though none of the stuff at the museum made any sense. What made sense is that you can literally stand with one foot in the northern hemisphere and one in the southern hemisphere. Going there is a must and you support local. Other things that make Ecuador so special is that the summit of Mount Chimborazo, Ecuador’s highest mountain, is the point on Earth closest to the sun. Ecuador is also divided into 4 regions; the coast, the Highlands, Amazonas, and Galapagos. Another cool and really interesting fact about Ecuador is that it has the world's first and second UNESCO World Heritage Sites; Quito being the first city and Galapagos the second. It's also one of the most biodiversity countries in the world. It's crazy to think that such a small country has so much to offer. We did a loop and most importantly we drove through the avenue of volcanoes where I got to see 10 volcanoes, which 5 of them is active. Woop Woop. Then we headed to Baniõs, which is literally the end of the Andes mountains and the beginning of Amazonas. Baniõs was my favorite for sure, with deep valleys, lush and green mountains, and plenty of waterfalls around every corner. When I look back at everything we did; hiking magnificent altitudes (It looked like it was my first time hiking, haha, I couldn't manage the altitude sickness very well) road trip, rafting, rappelling, hot springs, paddleboarding in the Amazon River, playing soccer with the locals, got to meet incredible people, experience the coast with beaches, bicycling scenic routes, made homemade cheese and other local delicacy food. I can't wait to go back for more, to see the whole country. I highly recommend these guys, you will make friends for a lifetime and really experience the authentic local way of traveling in Ecuador.

Ecuatraveling helped us book both a trip to the Galápagos Islands and Cuyabena nature reserve.

We were really overwhelmed by the number of different choices for both locations and Mike from Ecuatraveling was really good in working through with us all the various options and providing tips and recommendations on what tours we may like.

Although we had initialled only planned to book a Galapagos trip via Ecuatraveling, we were so impressed with the guidance and advice Mike provided that we ended up booking both tours with him and we went disappointed.

There are so many different options and your providers, but Mike and the team at Ecuatraveling are really helpful and supportive and I could not recommend them more!

For reference, we booked the 5D and 4N Galapagos cruise on the Santa Cruz II and the 4D trip to Waita Lodge in Cuyabeno

Recently my wife and I came back from a trip to Ecuador that included visiting Quito, Highlands and more attractions on the way to 8 days Galapagos cruise. We booked the entire trip through Ecuatraveling Company working with Michael Cantos. It turned out to be one of the greatest trip of my life. A lot can be said about the beauty of this country and striking experience to be on a yacht with 10 other people where every day is a real adventure, excitement and relaxation at the same time. I want to post my special “THANK YOU” to Michael Cantos who worked very hard to make it happen and was able to overcome all challenges and hurdles affecting travel industry during the COVID-19 pandemic. We lived through a last moment cancelation of the original cruise and rescheduling for a different boat, had to change the land portion of the trip due to the government imposed curfew made on a short notice, deal with the third party issues for changes to the cruise and so on. That was not an ordinary work for the travel agent and still at every step, Michael was on top of every issue, working through it and resolving to the end. His availability, great communication skills, immediate response to any inquiry and integrity are incomparable. Everything worked great – a tour guide, hotels, itinerary changes and attention to every detail possible.

Nicky Lodge was amazing. Did the 4-day amazon tour with them and everything was great. Our tour guide Ramulo was really experienced and fun. He explained everything with patience, enthusiasm and tried his best to spot wildlife as much as possible. The food was also excellent. I was not expecting the food quality to be so good. Everyone at the lodge was super friendly and helpful and it felt like a home. The activities were very well planned with enough time to rest and recharge in between.

Before deciding to go with Nicky Lodge, I contacted a few other Ecolodges in Cuyabeno Reserve and Nicky Lodge (Michael Cantos M.) was by far the fastest and the best one to respond to all my questions. He was very respectful and I could tell customer satisfaction is important to him.

Overall, I recommend Nicky Lodge to everyone :)

I have chosen Ecuatraveling to go to the Galapagos Islands and Cotopaxi National Park and I have been extremely pleased by each trip and I have been able to live extraordinaries experiences while discovering Ecuador.

I have been being very well advised by Mike, who was very helpful, kind, flexible and attentive to each one of my needs. He recommended to go on the Santa Cruz II to enjoy the incredible Galapagos Islands, I've discovered the Western Islands. The Galapagos Islands are an amazing destination and I could only recommend this cruise which has made the experience even more incredible.

The quality of the team, whether it is because of the knowledge of the guide, the high quality cuisine, the diversity of the activities or the great comfort of the cruise. The Galapagos Islands are absolutely amazing and you don’t want to miss out on it, and the Santa Cruz II will make you discover the best areas of the Galapagos that you would not be able to go by yourself.

Then, if you come to Ecuador a must do is the Cotopaxi National Park. I have chosen the day trip organized by Ecuatraveling and I could not have enjoyed it more than I did! The team was very passionate and very thoughtful about everyone’s needs and expectations.

Therefore, I would recommend Ecuatraveling 100% if you want to visit Ecuador in the best way possible!

Michael and Pablo planned an amazing trip to galapagos and the amanzon forest for me and my friend. We tasked them with planning a multi destination adventure in just a few days and they went out of their way to make sure we saw everything on our list. Highly recommend!

My 13 year old daughter and I had the most incredible riding journey around the base of Cotopaxi through Ecuatraveling. Our driver and guide picked us up promptly at our hotel in Quito and drove us to the stables on Cotopaxi. While driving Estevan told us anything and everything we wanted to know about Quito, Ecuador, Cotopaxi, and much more.
Our riding guide also was tremendous. He fitted us out with ponchos and chaps, even though we came prepared for the cold. While riding he always made sure we were OK, often looking back or waiting, if necessary. My daughter and I own our own horses, so we are extremely comfortable riding fast, and our guide caught onto our ability quickly, so we rode at a trot and gallop a great deal of the time. The scenery is absolutely breathtaking, and I took many photos --too many for my daughter's tastes.
I highly recommend Ecuatraveling and would definitely use them again.

TravelClubsInternational selected Ecuatraveling to custom design a group tour for us. We traveled during Covid with some tough travel restrictions. Our manager Pablo created an excellent itinerary for us that combined hiking, culture, natural scenery and the Galapagos islands on a budget. We were very pleased with the entire experience.

I emailed Ecuatraveling a few months before planning out trip to the Galápagos. I was just looking for a little information and possibly a cruise booking and I received so much more.
All the credit goes to Estaban. He help me create the perfect custom tour the met our needs. We are in our late 30’s, active and adventurous. Estaban assisted us with booking a four night 5 day cruise on a first class catamaran, two full-day diving excursions, hotel bookings, flight reservations and itinerary suggestions, figuring out the right dates for covid testing, getting the required Galápagos Salvaconducto.
This trip ended up being one of the best trips of our life we saw every thing you could wish to see in the Galapagos and enjoyed every minute of it.
Estaban was always available for a chat or any questions or concerns that we had. This made us feel very safe from being to end.
Honestly if you want to book anything in the Galapagos I would use this company and not even look anywhere else.
Estaban thank you for everything, you are an absolute gem.

Iv've had an amazing trip traveling with Ecuatraveling through Peru and Ecuador! It was my first time traveling to South America and it was better than I could've ever imagined. Special thanks to Pablo who was traveling with us (a group of 19 people) all the time, showed us all the beautiful places and made me feel safe. I've now lost a part of my soul somewhere in South America. I'll be forever grateful! Looking forward to the next journey!!
