Our travel philosophy is different: we focus on embracing adventure, feeling luxury, and doing things ‘just a little bit different!”

Itinerary Day 1
Arrive to Quito, Ecuador, and settle into the group hotel. That evening we will get to know each other at a Meet & Greet Dinner at the Vertigo Rooftop Restaurant at Le Parc.
Itinerary Day 2
Day two is an exploration to the middle of the earth. Discover the truths and myths surrounding the powers of the equator. Then share in a “Pamba Mesa” lunch.
The Pambamesa is a ceremony performed by the indigenous people of the Ecuadorian highlands as an act of solidarity and to thank Mother Earth for the four elements Water, Earth, Sun, and Moon. After visiting the Equator, we will have a private ceremony lunch in pambamesa fashion.
The rest of the afternoon will be at your leisure to relax, adjust to the altitude, or canoodle with new friends. That evening we will have a special opportunity to enjoy a full takeover at one of the top 10 restaurants in Quito. Restaurant De la Lama is within walking distance from our hotel, and the evening will feature authentic and delicious food and equally delightful conversations with our group.
Itinerary Day 3
Today will be a cultural exploration of Colonial Quito. We will have a guided tour, lunch, time for shopping, and conclude the evening with another private dinner located inside a private art museum (Munoz Marino Museos Galerias)
