Agents planning their 2019 travels can look to Tara Tours’ Amazon Rainforest FAM for explorations of Ecuador.
Departing March 30, 2019, the Amazon Rainforest FAM starts in Ecuador’s capital city with a full day tour of colonial and modern Quito. Advisors will travel through the colonial center visiting the cathedral, Government Palace, and La Compania Church before making a stop at the equatorial monument and interactive museum. The next day, travelers will fly to Coca and transfer to the Napo River port, where they’ll board the M/V Manatee. The next three days will be spent floating down the river. Highlights include visiting the Yasuni National Park, which is home to pink dolphins; meeting a Quechua family for a cultural immersion experience; participating in a cooking class with an Ecuadorian chef; and exploring the rainforest with a visit to a canopy tower overlooking the Amazon Basin.
Pricing for this weeklong FAM starts at $2,849 pp, while spouses or companions pay $3,049 pp. Included in this cost are all accommodations, most meals, domestic airfare between Coca and Quito, park entrance fees, and tours.
