About Rene

I was born in the Netherlands and moved in 2007 to Ecuador where I live with my wife Helen. Hiking in the mountains is one of my hobbies that I like to practice in Ecuador.

We live in Quito and are surrounded by beautiful mountains and nature making it a paradise for active people. Through my work in tourism, I hope to be able to share this passion with our customers.

Q&A with Rene

What is your favourite quirk about Ecuador?

The diversity of the country within short distances allows you to quickly end up in another world such as the Andes, Amazon or coast. The weather can also vary just a few kilometers away and there is always a place where the sun shines. The resilience of Ecuadoreans is also a beautiful characteristic of this country.

Why do you enjoy creating Impactful Travel itineraries and why is sustainability important to you?

I enjoy showing customers the diversity of Ecuador and how beautiful the country is. The reward is the positive reactions you receive.

I think sustainability is important because I am a real nature person myself and we have to do our very best to protect this properly. Furthermore, sustainability is also important in how you deal with people and what opportunities you give them.

What is your strategy to make sure your customers have peace of mind and feel safe?

Personal contact and make it clear to your customers that you are there for them 24 hours to make the journey as smooth as possible.
