You'll be surprised at the wealth of experiences and incredible diversity found in Ecuador, a small South American country about half the size of Nevada. Discover the unrivaled endemic species of the Galápagos Islands, from blue-footed boobies and giant tortoises to marine iguanas. Channel your inner scientist as you closely examine flora and fauna that inspired Charles Darwin's theories of evolution. Cruise through the Amazon basin along the Napo River, a tributary of the mighty Amazon River, and search for elusive birds and animals with the help of your expert naturalist guide. Chat with friendly locals at the Otavalo Market while you shop for unique, colorful handicrafts. Experience the authenticity of Quito, the country's capital and UNESCO World Heritage site built upon Incan ruins and set against a backdrop of mountains and volcanoes. Ready to be amazed? All you have to do is pack a bag and join us in Ecuador.

Advertised prices are per person, based on double occupancy; single occupancy rooms may be available for an additional charge. Advertised prices are the best available based on the least expensive travel dates, departure city, and other options, and do not include optional excursions or other optional items.

† The Carefree Booking policy is not travel insurance and only applies to a new booking—defined as booking without the use of funds on file from a previous cancellation. With our Carefree Booking policy, if you book one of our scheduled departures and decide later not to travel for any reason, you can transfer all payments you've made excluding the cost of any issued flight tickets, towards another available departure date or package, with no change fees or penalties.

Alternately, you can choose to receive a future travel credit for all payments made, excluding the cost of any issued flight tickets; or you can choose to receive a refund for that same amount, minus the deposit, per person future travel credit.

You may use these credits anytime, however they must be used or transferred within 5 years of your booking.

The Carefree Booking policy only applies to your original booking—limiting rebookings to one. Subsequent bookings will be subject to standard cancellation penalties. Additionally, any coupon or discount (other than our Instant Savings) does not transfer from the cancelled booking and therefore will not be applied to the new booking.

Travel protection premiums may be credited to your new tour provided: no claim is filed; (no vendor penalties such as Air, sea or rail etc have been incurred); and your new trip departs within 1 year of the cancellation of your original tour.

Valid for bookings made on or after September 23, 2022 Offer may not be available on all packages, including private and custom group departures and Biblical Journeys. Changes or cancellations requested after final payment due date are subject to our regular change and cancellation fees & policies. For more information and some additional restrictions, see our terms & conditions.

†† $199 deposit available on select packages. Valid for new bookings only. Changes to your package, departure date, or flights may require an increased deposit. If you select our optional travel protection plan, the premium will be added to your deposit. See additional terms & conditions.
