Ecuador's Galapagos Islands are a destination in and of itself, as researcher Charles Darwin called them "a living laboratory". After visiting the Galapagos Islands, be sure to explore the Avenue of the Volcanoes, go shopping for handicrafts at the Otavalo Market and look for the famous Panama hats in Cuenca, ride the Ecuador railway, and walk along the cobbled stoned streets of Quito. We offer several Ecuador tours, or you can create your own customized tour.Ecuador Info Create a Custom Ecuador Trip

But make sure also to explore Quito, the capital of Ecuador. Quito was one of the first UNESCO World Heritage Sites due to the city having the highest concentration of colonial-era churches in the world.

For the traveler interested in Train Tours, Ecuador is the country for you. The Tren Crucero is notorious for its exciting train tracks, and its stops along Ecuador's hidden gems. This luxurious train follows a narrow path which is carved directly into the side of the mountain. While you sit back and enjoy the ride, you will travel along the historical tracks taking you through the country's highlights. During one point of your ride, you will be able to see Devil's Nose on one side, and on the other side, there will be a steep drop off just inches away! Don't let the drop fool you, even though it's quite steep; this train is very safe. So cuddle with your blanket, and enjoy this historic train ride.
