Ishpingo Tours was originally founded by foreigners from the U.S. and U.K who fell in love with Ecuador and decided to stay. Now a specialty division of Andando Tours, a pioneer in Galapagos tourism, Ishpingo’s mission continues to be the creation of customized adventures for fellow LGBT travelers along with their friends and family members who are looking for opportunities to explore a new and exciting destination in a safe, non-judgmental environment.

Having an international perspective means we understand perfectly the particular needs of our guests.

We have worked for years with our fully-trained guides and the owners and administrators of local lodges, hotels, haciendas in Ecuador and Galapagos boat owners to develop an understanding of the unique expectations of members of the LGBT community and to create the best possible experiences in this mega-diverse country.

Our tours showcase the best of Ecuador’s four worlds: the Andes Mountains, Amazon Rainforest, Pacific Coast and the jewel in the crown, the enchanted Galapagos Islands.

We invite you to experience the warm, relaxed and welcoming atmosphere of an Ishpingo Tours holiday designed to create memories to last a lifetime. Ecuador is yours to discover!

Our Passengers' reviews:

Ishpingo Tours was recommended to us by the owners of the website Purple Roofs. We asked Ishpingo Tours about tour options in and around Quito, they gave us a number of choices from which to choose. All in all we could not have asked for a better day. The staff at Ishpingo Tours deserves our thanks and appreciation, we will, for sure, call on them again before our next visit to Ecuador.
