South American Tours Ecuador

| |

With offices in Ecuador, Perú, Chile, Brazil, Uruguay, Argentina and Colombia, we have been creating unique travel experiences throughout South America for over 45 years. We offer an authentic insight into the South American culture and at the same time try to give a better understanding of local traditions and manners. By offering train journeys, trekking tours, and social programs, we would like to create a stronger awareness for the environment and for acting sustainably. We aim to create journeys that seek not only to enrich the lives of any traveler to Ecuador and South America, but also those of the local communities and our team.

Ecuador is a country of lush rain and cloud forests, incredible biodiversity and a rich, diverse culture. The country is a leading example of nature-based sustainable travel practices. SAT Ecuador invites travelers to see the natural wonders of the coast, the forest and the Andes, while at the same time working towards protecting Ecuador's natural resources and thus create a truly sustainable travel experience.

We recognize our responsibility in contributing to a change towards sustainable and fair tourism. The planet we live in is full of natural and cultural treasures and as a DMC we invite people to explore these treasures. It is our responsibility to act sustainably in every way in order to ensure the protection of the local nature and culture, to support the economy of local communities, to create a fair and enjoyable working climate for our team and of course to provide an impeccable and safe travel experience to our clients. We conduct our business fairly and ethically. Our efforts also include the education of our team and our clients, to create awareness, and to offer capabilities to improve travel and daily life habits. Part of our main principles is communicating these quality standards, being transparent and giving our clients an honest insight into our working environment.

In Ecuador, we actively support sustainable efforts in the country by offering tours with purpose. We are also financially supporting the Aliñambi Foundation near Quito, which is a shelter for children who used to live in bad conditions and ended up on the streets. Currently, it provides a safe place for about 40 children who are housed in two buildings. They have a bakery, a carpentry shop, a greenhouse and a school that is also visited by other children living nearby. The children of the foundation receive medical care, psychological support, regular meals, education and of course lots of love and attention. In addition, we are participating in different reforestation initiatives, e.g. at the Cotopaxi area in October 2018 and in November 2019. The municipality of Quito rewarded us with the Distintio Q Seal, recognizing our quality standards and sustainable efforts.
