We did 3 days of tours with CarpeDM and were impressed with the quality of the guides and the time they put in to make our vacation perfect. We had private tours (just our family) and they did little extras to make each day spectacular

Hello. My wife and I would like to take local Ecuador tours, a day or two at a time, for birding. We don't need to see all 1200 species or visit the islands. We would like to stay in a local hotel. We are concerned about transportation and safety. Can CarpeDM make those arrangements for us? Thanks.

Most certainly. They did a wonderful day tour of Quilotoa for us and we were very pleased. I am certain they can accommodate a day trip to Mindo for birding. Their hostel is also a GREAT option. Very reasonable price... More
