“Ecuador has so many beautiful places and I prefer to share my enthusiasm about this with everyone.
The fact that I can answer questions and allow people to make the most beautiful trips gives me great satisfaction.
Through my experiences in the travel industry, my life here in Ecuador, I have been able to help many customers with great pleasure on a trip to remember.”

Do you also want an unforgettable journey through the country that I fell in love with from the beginning?!

Please contact me. I can also become your travel specialist in Ecuador and help you prepare a suitable travel proposal through Ecuador (without obligation).

I am happy to help you book the (last minute) Galapagos cruise, an island tour and/or day trips on the islands.

Ellen’s story of how her journey in tourism started:

In the Netherlands I had been working for a number of years in the human resources department of a construction company. The beginning of 2002 the trip hit jitters.

The summer months I decided to travel for 3 months through Ecuador and Peru.
In Ecuador I learned Spanish with other Dutch at a language school in Quito. In Peru I traveled on my own from Lima to Cuzco and back to Lima. An unforgettable, beautiful, special trip!

Back in Quito

When I got back in Quito I was offered a job as a tour guide at a travel agency. A great opportunity to take advantage of this offer to be able to work in tourism in this way. With different groups I traveled through Ecuador. We visited  the Amazon region, the highlands, the coast and even the Galapagos Islands. During these trips I gained a lot of experience about the people and cultures in Ecuador.

After my experience of guiding I was able to work at a travel agency in Quito. I was involved in drafting tours through Ecuador and trips to the Galapagos Islands.
