“We wrote to just about every travel agency out there … Happy Gringo was the only one who actually listened to us and designed a trip around what we really wanted.” (Carl & Nancy Noah, USA)
“Dear John & Eva, we just wanted to write again to thank you for organising such a marvellous trip. You understood the needs of our group very well and adapted the perfect tailor-made tour for us. We loved the country and hope to be back with another group in the future when we shall certainly be using your services again.” (Yvan & Cheryl Berrebi, France)
“The Happy Gringo custom-made tour was excellent in its variety and superb in content. What most impressed me though is that I was so well looked-after and pampered throughout - Eva and John were so kind in Quito, Milton was the best driver I could have hoped for, and the attention to small details was exceptional.” (Paul Harris, Australia)
|Where will your dreams take you?
Where to go?
Ecuador has 4 distinct regions – Andean highlands, Pacific coast, Amazon Rainforest and the Galapagos Archipelago – each boast their own unique attractions and charms so you can pick and mix exactly where you prefer to explore!
It’s easy to combine the highlights of several regions into one epic custom trip, or to focus your energies on really getting to know one specific area well. Follow well-travelled routes or venture off of the beaten-path. Breathe the fresh air of national parks or discover cultural delights in UNESCO recognized cities. In Ecuador the world truly is your oyster!
|Spoilt for choice!
What to see and do?
Close your eyes and imagine a land of stunning volcanic landscapes and snow-capped Andean peaks, of lush tropical rainforest and white-sand beaches, of colourful native Indians and splendid colonial architecture, of wild waterfalls and captivating creatures ...all awaiting your discovery!
The range of activities and things to do is equally diverse with fabulous options for adrenalin junkies, trekkers & climbers, wildlife enthusiasts & natures lovers, fun-seekers & sun-seekers, relaxation and rejuvenation devotees, culture vultures, photography aficionados, eco-tourism fanatics, history hounds, train buffs and shopping groupies ... phew! I could go on but I think you get the idea!
|A warm welcome awaits you
Who to do it with?
Travel accompanied by one of our experienced and knowledgeable English-speaking guides or go it solo with a safe Spanish-speaking driver (cheaper option). Either way we help you to decide your day to day route leaving you with enough flexibility and spontaneity to stop off where you want to along the way for photos or to make new friends.
