Touring: Ecuador and Galapagos
BESTtravels is dedicated to providing
quality cultural holidays in unusual and delightful
places. Our itineraries are always thoroughly researched
and tested and have proven themselves over the years.
Where we don't speak the language we work with local
travel companies who also have an excellent track record,
to ensure that the holidays flow smoothly and that participants
are well looked after, well informed and well satisfied
at the end of their tour.
Our touring program is hosted by Dave
Best. Dave was formerly a Director of Pyrenees Adventures,
and before that a town planner in Manchester. He has
been a Francophile as far back as he cares to remember,
and a lifelong walker. He has escorted walking and cultural
programs in Europe, Asia, Africa and South America for
a number of years and has travelled or lived in the
areas to which he takes trips. His enthusiasm for the
itineraries, wealth of knowledge, and desire for a quality
cup of coffee combine to make Dave an excellent travelling
companion and Tour Escort. A native of London, he moved
to Sydney, Australia in 1993.
Please look closely at Dave's programs
and compare the prices and services offered, before
deciding to join him on one of his acclaimed journeys.
Dave works with very experienced, and
enthusiastic Australian travel companies who share his
love of beautiful, unusual and comparatively inexpensive
destinations, and are fully licensed and insured travel
businesses. Your funds are therefore protected by Australian
consumer laws as well as industry-funded insurance schemes.
With teams like this on board, both in
Australia and in the host countries we visit, we're
sure you'll have a holiday to remember.
