Dear World Travelers & Crafts Enthusiasts,

Experience the rich crafts traditions of Ecuador AND discover her history, culture and natural areas with her proud native son, Mauricio.

This is a well-balanced and delightful tour with something for everyone! We’ll take you into artisan’s workshops to witness their crafts traditions. Mauricio will enthusiastically show off his country, from its ancient Incan ruins, majestic Andes and the Avenue of the Volcanoes. Witness Independence Day festivities in Guayaquil, the Pearl of the Pacific.

Our trip includes many meals, accommodations in both 5-star hotels as well as carefully selected modest haciendas, crafts demonstrations, all sightseeing and entrance fees, ground transportation by private air-conditioned coach, an expert tour manager and local guide. We’re offering this trip on a land-only basis so that you can use your frequent flyer mileage or take advantage of low-cost internet specials. Of course, if you prefer an all-inclusive tour, say no more! We’re happy to make all of the arrangements for you!

Please enjoy our brochure and send your Reservation Form today. We look forward to welcoming you to our very special tour!
