Celebrating 16 Years of Elite Status: A Journey from Quito, Ecuador.
A Brief Look Back at September 2007 September 2007 wasn't just another month; it marked the inception of a travel dream in the heart of Quito, Ecuador. A dream that was not about racing through destinations but savoring every moment. Remember that September?
The Dream Begins in Quito, Ecuador Our journey began in Quito, a vibrant city with a rich tapestry of culture and history. But beyond its beautiful landscapes, we found a purpose - to introduce travelers to the authentic essence of destinations.
Setting the Stage for a Sustainable Future Even in those early days, our ethos was clear: travel should be sustainable, responsible, and deeply connected to the local communities.
Decades of Dreams & Their Realization Over the years, we didn't just chase dreams; we realized them. And while the landscape of the travel industry shifted, our commitment to 'slow travel' kept going.
The Importance of 'Slow Travel' What's the rush, right? Slow travel is not about ticking boxes. It's about immersion. It's the melody of local music, the flavors of indigenous food, and the stories that only locals can tell.
