At Discovery Tours, we develop cultural adventures for those who want a depth of perspective not found on standard travel excursions. Working with local contacts, we create one-of-a-kind experiences that enrich our tours in ways not possible for larger companies or independent travellers. These opportunities to interact with people not connected with tourism provide unique experiences for our tour participants and are often a highlight of the tour. We are always warmly welcomed and leave knowing that we have been allowed a special “peek “inside” that tours visiting the same places week after week would never be able to offer.

Discover the magic of Ecuador’s biodiversity and culture on an exploration of the rural and urban charms of one of South America’s most rewarding destinations.
Along the Andean Mountain range, we admire the contrast between the equatorial lushness in the valley and glacial volcanoes. Find treasures at the largest market in South America where numerous Indigenous groups come to barter, and later slip into a world of “ahhh” in a mountain hot spring. Our tour takes us the Amazon to see jungle wildlife, its impressive landscapes with exotic flora, fauna and rich culture of all, all these flavours are packed together, so you can be in the jungle in the morning and at the foot of a glacier by the evening.
Ecuador also has one gem found nowhere else: the pristine and fragile Galápagos Islands made famous through the writings of Charles Darwin. The ultimate experience for animal lovers awaits in the Galápagos Islands, where an incredibly diverse and unique array of wildlife prosper among fertile lands and volcanic formations. The most attractive aspect of this trip is that it is not a cruise, but rather a land-based adventure that allows for more time and greater immersion in not only the natural splendour of this special place but also in its unique and little-known island culture.
We invite you to immerse yourself in these destinations to explore new cultures in a way you’d never manage to on your own.
