Ecuador & the Galapagos
Straddling two hemispheres, Ecuador - the smallest of the Andean countries - offers the traveller a striking blend of landscapes, peoples and cultures. Once the Inca Empire's northernmost territory, successive waves of invaders have left their indelible mark on the country.
We can plan your own micro-invasion of the country with military precision by suggesting itineraries to include a visit to Inca ruins on the hilltops of the Sierra and the beautifully preserved cities of Quito and Cuenca - both rich in art and architecture after 300 years of Spanish rule.
Dive the Galapagos Islands
And then of course there is the country’s jewel in the crown especially for divers, the Galapagos Islands. Six hundred miles out in the Pacific Ocean lie the fascinating islands, the catalyst for Darwin’s theory of evolution. We have visited the islands on several occasions, and know the best boats for every type of trip from family holidays to dive safaris.
