Quito Cathedral


Quito was founded in the 16th century on the ruins of an Inca city and stands at an altitude of 2,850 m. Despite the 1917 earthquake, the city has the best-preserved, least altered historic center in Latin America. The monasteries of San Francisco and Santo Domingo, and the Church and Jesuit College of La Compañía, with their rich interiors, are pure examples of the 'Baroque school of Quito', which is a fusion of Spanish, Italian, Moorish, Flemish and indigenous art.

Galapagos Islands

The Galapagos Islands are among the planet’s premiere nature and wildlife destinations. The fascinating volcanic geology, unique flora and fauna, and isolated nature of the islands have pushed them to the forefront of scientific inquiry since the mid-1800s, and research on the 13 major islands continues to play a vital role in our understanding of evolution.

What Our Clients Are Saying!

Highlights of Ecuador and Peru

First, I just wanted to thank our travel specialist again! His help was invaluable and made the trip so memorable and easy. Everything for the Peru leg was flawless from the time we landed in Cusco. On the trail, Lobo, our guide was a walking Inca/Peru encyclopedia. He answered every question we threw at him regarding plants, animals, history, astronomy and anthropology and everything else. Everything in Ecuador was nearly as equally perfect. We filled the days between the trek and the Galapagos cruise with sightseeing in Cuenca and Quito on our own. Thanks again for planning out this amazing trip! Look forward to our next Global Basecamps vacation!

Dave and Family on their trek

This was my first trip with Global Basecamps... It will not be my last. The overall planning was excellent. The communications prior to leaving were clear, concise and helpful... The transfer arrangements from airports to hotels were flawless. Our guide, Edwar Montalvo Gomez, was outstanding. He was knowledgeable, friendly, supportive and most importantly fun for the teenagers. Our cook, Pedro, was to put it into words of my grandchildren "amazing, really awesome"! The hotels were fine. The gold standard was Villa Urubamba. It was truly an oasis in terms of beauty, service and quality.
