4 Possible formulas:
 
Formula PREMIUM, exclusive tour for people who want a stay adapted to their desires, a discovery tailored to their wishes and more flexible ...
Ideal for families with children or group of friends looking to optimize their visiting days taking advantage of the maximum transport and guide.

Shared tour on fixed dates (with logistics from our agency)
In this formula, when we will have confirmed participants on a certain date, we will publish the departure date on our website to promote the stay and thus be able to make a larger group with better prices. This does not alter the quality of the service and will allow you to meet more travelers and reduce the price of the tour.

Group tour with other agencies:
Some agencies are grouped to unite people and thus leave in private bus from the tourist sector of Quito. The service is less personalized but it manages to reduce the price of the stay in a significant way.

Formula TRANSPORTATION on Wednesday or Saturday (minimum of 4 participants to confirm departure)
Once there are people interested, we will open the date and post it on our website to try to complete at least four passengers and thus confirm the date of departure. The more time we have, the more likely we have to confirm the exit !!!
So please let us know if you are interested in that option !!!
