Rebecca Adventure Travel has a wide variety of Ecuador tours to offer. All tours are with an English speaking guide. Because Ecuador is relatively small its possible to visit multiple regions in only one tour, where you can experience the best of all four regions: the Andes, the Amazon, the Pacific Coast and of course the Galapagos Islands. Therefore, Ecuador is the perfect destination for multiple day tours for those who are looking for something exotic and to get all experiences in one!

Quito


ECUADOR HIGHLIGHTS

A trip through mainland Ecuador Highlights is pretty impressive. The country has four drastically different regions, the Andes mountains, the Amazon jungle and the Pacific coast and of course the Galapagos Islands. Each region has its own unique fauna and flora, climate and culture. The highlights of Ecuador trips let you visit two or more regions and take you to their most beautiful places.

Andes Mountains Region 
You can visit the stunning colonial centers of Quito and Cuenca, visit the colorful traditional indigenous market of Otavalo. There are several national parks where you can hike, bike or go horseback riding. You can stand on the actual equator, visit the Ingapirca ruins that were built by the Cañari people and used by the Incas. Driving through the impressive Andean highlands, with its countless mountains and volcanoes, will leave you speechless. Ecuador Highlights tours were made to involve all regions in one tour!

The Galapagos Region

The Galapagos Archipelago is a very special place in the world. All 19 islands are located in the Pacific Ocean, about 1.000 kilometers away from the South American Coast. The Archipelago has a unique flora and fauna, due to the special natural processes that take place. There is ongoing seismic and volcanic activity and the islands are extremely isolated, which makes that a lot of special and unique animal species found a place to live here. For this reason, this marine reserve is sometimes called a ‘ living museum and showcase of evolution’. In 1835 Charles Darwin visited the Galapagos, which contributed to the development of his theory of evolution.
