Booking well in advance may only seem like a requirement for your more significant tours like Galapagos & Amazon, and although they don’t need as much anticipation; your Highlands & Day tours should not be left to very end to have them arranged. They are a great way of complimenting your stay in the country so having them arranged 3 months prior would be the best way of ensuring you will have the perfect tour put together. Most of our guides are freelancers so when looking for one available close to the departing date it is more likely they will not be available, we will of course try our very best to have your tour arranged.
We can arrange our Highlands & Day Tours for any amount of clients, the ideal number being 2 travelers onwards in order for them to be cost effective as our tours are arranged privately only. Solo travelers will notice a significant increase in costs as operational expenses for a private tour tend to be high. If given the case we could try and get solo travelers paired; but chances of finding someone else to sign up for the same tour on a specific date are slim. We do encourage solo travelers to find a fellow companion or friends to travel with before booking, unless you are looking to reach a summit and want to have a private guide to yourself.
Acclimatizing Packages slowly introduce you to higher altitudes with more easy going treks & sleeping in the surroundings; which in return greatly increases the chances of reaching the ultimate peaks like Chimborazo, Cotopaxi among others. Even for those that have a great fitness level going straight to a summit has proven to be tasking; altitude being the number 1 reason many climbers cant reach summits. You don’t necessarily have to commit to a long acclimatizing package, our 3 Day acclimatizing programs have a high success rate under the right circumstances, they are logistically arranged for a moderate Day 1 trek; followed by a 2 day summit ascent.
The different tours we have listed in our Highlands and Day Tours categories have been put together by our knowledgeable guides and our operational staff; they are well acquainted to a great extent with each region and location.
