Custom Ecuador Trip Planner

Craft a personalized Ecuador itinerary with the help of local experts

Personalized Ecuador Travel Itineraries

Take travel to a completely different level with the personalized tours of Ecuador here at Impactful Travel. Ecuador is one of the more compact countries in Latin America, making it the best choice for people who can’t or don’t want to travel long distances.

A custom trip doesn’t have to be 100% community-based or centered around responsible tourism. A custom trip generally combines all kinds of experiences to fulfill all your travel dreams. However, we always make sure that, throughout your whole trip, you feel we have carefully considered every detail of your time in Ecuador!

So, what do you want your personalized Ecuador itinerary to look like? Keep reading to find out more.

Authentic Ecuador Itineraries

While Ecuador may be a new destination for Impactful Travel (we began our life as Responsible Travel Peru), it certainly isn’t a new destination for our co-founder Lydia, who has lived and operated trips in Ecuador for over twenty years. With Impactful Travel, we are fulfilling Lydia’s dream of creating more meaningful and transformational journeys for people visiting Ecuador and also the legendary Galapagos Islands which also belong to Ecuador. 

Lydia and her team stand at the base of Impactful Travel’s portfolio of sustainable tourism products in Ecuador and we have already created some absolutely unforgettable trips and tours in Ecuador. If you’d like to be inspired by our pre-designed experiences, consider our collections of Ecuador day tours and our multi-day Ecuador tour packages. If there’s anything you’d like to do from these collections of tours, let us know and we can incorporate them into your personalized Ecuador itinerary.

Why Choose a Custom Ecuador Trip?

It can be a little overwhelming as you chart your next journey, grappling with some big decisions about your great adventure in Ecuador. Opt for Impactful Travel’s tailor-made Ecuador excursion planner if you have one, some, or all of the following aspirations:

  • You’d like to be immersed in the real Ecuador, heading away from the conventional tourist routes.
  • You’d like to explore diverse Ecuadorian destinations while sidestepping the burden of planning and the logistics associated with such expeditions. Allow Impactful Travel to facilitate an extraordinary journey for you, minus the exhaustive legwork on your end!
  • You are eager to forge connections with the remarkable local people, transcending interactions limited to hotel staff and tour guides.
  • You are committed to ensuring that the money you spend in Ecuador contributes positively to the local community.

Our meticulously curated Ecuador travel itineraries prioritize considerations such as altitude acclimatization and a well-rounded assortment of distinctive activities. We also put a lot of emphasis on slow travel. This is something we believe profoundly enriches the experience of traveling through Ecuador!

If traveling to the Galapagos, you can expect a different range of options when we create your bespoke Galapagos itinerary. You can also combine a trip to the Galapagos Islands with a Peru or Ecuador trip as part of our Multi-Destination Custom Trips in Latin America.

How Custom Ecuador Trips Work with Impactful Travel?

Our Personalized Approach for Discerning Travelers

At Impactful Travel, every tailor-made adventure is crafted with the discerning traveler in mind. We’re excited to create this unique journey just for you, focusing on Ecuador’s natural wonders, its unique culture, and its vibrant people. Traveling can be filled with uncertainties, so we’ve put together this guide to ensure you know exactly what to anticipate.

We recognize that planning a bespoke trip in Ecuador means seeking an experience that perfectly matches your dreams, interests, and budget. That’s why we’ve honed our process to guarantee that every inquiry receives the attention and care it deserves.

We Begin with a Qualification Questionnaire — Before delving into crafting your ideal Ecuadorian adventure, we invite you to complete a brief survey. This initial step helps us gain insight into your preferences and expectations.

Furthermore, upon completing the survey, you’ll have the opportunity to Schedule a Free Consultation. After reviewing your responses, we’ll offer a free optional 15-minute consultation with one of our Ecuador travel specialists. This conversation allows us to delve deeper into your interests and refine your vision, helping us design the ultimate personalized journey through Ecuador just for you.

After this, we’ll provide an initial draft itinerary. This will showcase our personalized approach to designing your trip.

Fine-tuning and Revisions: Upon receiving your feedback on the initial draft itinerary, we’ll make adjustments to tailor the proposal to your preferences and send you a revised version if necessary. This process remains complimentary, ensuring your satisfaction with the proposed travel plan.

USD$100 Deposit — For those ready to move forward, we’ll request a reservation fee of USD$100. This commitment allows us to allocate significant resources to planning your custom trip in Ecuador. This fee will be deducted from the final cost of your trip.

Your Final Ecuador Itinerary — Our team will set to work meticulously designing every aspect of your journey, utilizing all the insights gained from the survey and consultation. Our aim is to surpass your expectations and provide flexibility for adjustments. While perfection is rarely achieved in travel, we strive to ensure that your personalized Ecuadorian tour comes as close to perfection as possible. 

Each step is tailored to bring you closer to the Ecuadorian adventure of your dreams, with the flexibility and personalized attention you deserve. Should you have any questions or worries about this process, please feel free to reach out. And for further inspiration, take a look at our glowing reviews.
