Exclusive TheMayanTraveler.com Group Tour

This is one of the first archaeology-centric tours of Ecuador.  We put this tour together for an archaeology group from Arizona.  Initially they were skeptical that there was enough of archaeological interest in Ecuador to keep these seasoned travelers interested and entertained.  They so thoroughly enjoyed the tour (some called it the Archaeology and Gourmet Tour) that they have commissioned another tour for 2011 covering much of the same attractions and adding many others along the Pacific Coast.

Your group can experience this tour as well and, as they were, be surprised and delighted by what all Ecuador has to offer.  Plus we can add a Galapagos extension too!
