I have traveled with Andean Discovery three different times; twice to Ecuador and once to Peru. We had an absolutely wonderful time and I highly recommend this company. Andean Discovery is organized, knowledgable, and personable. Our trips were well-rounded and I really felt that we experienced the two countries completely. Their communication is great and all three of our trips were fun and went smoothly.
