Returning guest sheepishly admits... it was "a trip of a lifetime"
Vicki Metcalfe is an avid birder.
She approached us in early 2019 wanting help organizing a trip to Ecuador that would expose her to the wonderful bird diversity of the country. While having less than 0.1% of the Earth's surface area, over 10% of the world's bird species have been recorded in the country (mostly on the mainland). Galapagos offers birders the chance to easily spot species found nowhere else on the planet (flightless cormorants, Galapagos penguins, the waved albatross, all kinds of Galapagos finches - and that's just for starters).
On her return, just before the pandemic kicked in, Vicki wrote up a review of her trip for her local community newspaper, the New Edinburgh News (which happens to be just walking distance from our home). In the concluding paragraph of her article, she writes: "Cliché though it may be, my birding adventure in Ecuador and the Galapagos was truly the trip of a lifetime." It may be cliché, but frankly, a big proportion of our returning guests use the very same words.
CNH Tours can help you plan a custom trip to Ecuador and Galapagos, ensuring you get the most out of your time there. Whether you're an avid birder, into horseback riding, chocolate, lost civilizations, textiles... we can work with you to assemble the elements of a wonderful extension before or after your Galapagos trip.
