ECUADOR TRAIN TOURS

 

ecuador train tours

 

 

This route is surrounded by snow capped summits and the mystical beauty that, in times past, nourished the mythology of early cultures and later provided an incentive for the conquering Spanish to settle here.
Along the Panamerican Highway you will encounter diverse and friendly Andean villages and colonial cities like Riobamba, located at the foot hills of Chimborazo (6310 masl) the highest mountain of Ecuador, and surrounded by some of the most spectacular mountain ranges such as Altar (5319 masl), Tungurahua (5016 masl) and Carihuayrazo.

TESTIMONIALS

Dear Martha,

The clients returned, they are very pleased with their stay, for which I thank you very much! Everything was all right, the islands were beautiful. The first day the guides weren’t very helpful, but the second was great. Also the hotel in Quito was very nice, only the tour was very short. So that is basically the feedback, I will be meeting them the day after tomorrow, they promised great pictures and stories. So thank you again, I surely found a partner, looking forward to serving more happy clients together!!
