This was the trip of a lifetime. It exceeded my expectations and was filled with wonderful people and terrific leaders. The pace is frenetic but organized and I never felt that I couldn’t keep up.
Ecuador & Galápagos Islands Cruise
Excellent experience
03/27/22 by 1st-time traveler Linda
I didn’t know what to expect from EF tours. It was a marvelous trip. Every aspect was well organized. Our tour directors were knowledgeable, kind, attended to very detail. The accommodations were excellent, the food was delicious. The excursions were enjoyable. Thanks to all who made it possible.

I always thought that watching nature programs on TV was all that I needed, but actually being in the same environment as the wildlife is a privilege and an experience that MUST be done in person.

Journey to Quito and Galapagos

This was the most wonderful trip! This was my 5 th trip with Go Ahead tours and possibly the best. Our tour guide was the best and we had a most wonderful time.
Ecuador & Galápagos Islands Cruise
wildlife-viewing adventure
08/19/18 by 4th-time traveler Erica
This was the best wild life adventure ever and the historical aspects were just as amazing. The Galapagos cruise was the best part. It was non stop hiking, snorkeling, and exploring the untouched wild with an intimate small group of about 8 people.

Galapagos Islands and Ecuador

Our tour guide Juan Carlos Rivera was by far the best tour director we have ever had on many of our trips. Ship accommodations, food and the crew were fantastic. Plenty of activities where you'll never get bored.

Travel tips for trips to Ecuador

When it comes to Latin America tours, Ecuador is tough to beat, thanks to its diverse landscapes and ecosystems, as well as its rich cultural heritage. Here are a few tips for travelers looking for unique things to do on our Ecuador tours.

  • Take in bird’s-eye views. One of Quito’s best lookout points is the top of El Panecillo, a 656-foot-high hill that’s home to a towering aluminum statue of the winged Virgin of Quito.
  • Go shopping in Otavalo. This town in the Andes Mountains is beloved by travelers for its eponymous market. Hop between stalls to shop for indigenous crafts, and watch a local weaving demonstration.
  • Stand on the equator. Located at Mitad Del Mundo (translation: middle of the world), roughly 30 miles north of Quito, the Quitsato Sundial sits on the equator and is a fun stop for demonstrations of equatorial effects.

For more to do, and for ways to spend free time on our Ecuador trips, check out our Ecuador Travel Guide.
