It Was Hard to Say Goodbye

14 Day Ecuador Itinerary

Ecuador is a beautiful country—from Quito all the way to the coast of Guayaquil. We met some of the most humbling people and had the chance to experience the culture of Ecuador.

What’s your impression of this trip?

This vacation was a mother-daughter trip that I’d been planning for a while, and this was our first time visiting Ecuador! Anywhere is definitely a company I have been and will continue to recommend to help you plan your vacations perfectly. Ecuador is a beautiful country. We ate good food, met some of the most humbling people on our tours, and definitely had the chance to experience the culture of Ecuador.

It was hard to say goodbye to Ecuador because...

Cuenca city was beautiful. We made a few stops along the way on the city tour, and the nature/sensory element of the experience was breathtaking. Our private transfer between each town was safe and reliable. Now, there are no words to describe our driver, (which we were lucky to have for 9 days) Ricardo. He was professional, friendly, and went above and beyond to make our Ecuador experience one to remember. When stopping at Quito city, he recommended changing the dates of our city tour so we would get to see the Changing of the Guard. Being able to experience the local culture was priceless. It was sad to say goodbye, but one thing is for sure when we plan our next trip to Ecuador, we will be asking for Ricardo again!

The reason this vacation was so successful...

I was hesitant at first (booking with an online travel agency), but much to my surprise, I was blown away. Percy was amazing with answering all of my questions due to his knowledge about Ecuador. He went above and beyond and for that, I'm grateful and thankful. Anywhere.com made our Ecuador experience one to remember.
