Special Thanks to all my friends in the last april OAT Galapagos expedition!

Dear friends OAT Travellers:

We spent 8 wonderful days together in Ecuador & Galapagos.   Your interest and the unique place you visited made this a one of a kind trip.

Thanks for sharing with me feelings, landscapes, wildlife and more on the Galapagos…. fascinating destination for sure !!!

For some of you a dream came true, for others a unique place with extraordinary life… For me a new possibility to show you the place I call home and gives me the change to be the connection between you and this.

I hope that this OAT – Machu Picchu & Galapagos exceeded your expectations and you tell soon your family and friends how it was…

Andres your Galapagos Naturalist


Dear OAT Travellers – Welcome to your upcoming trip MPG 04 | 02 | 2012

Bienvenidos amigos… (welcome friends!!!)

On behalf of Overseas Adventure Travel, I want to send you a huge welcome greeting before your arrival to my country… Ecuador. I am Andres Cadena, your Trip Leader on your up coming trip to Ecuador – Galapagos Islands which is the second part of your  Machu Picchu and the Galapagos Overseas Adventure and I hope to exceed all your expectations for this trip. I was born in Quito, the capital of Ecuador and you can have a look with more info at the About myself… link on top of this post. I’ve been part of the OAT Team in Ecuador since 2008.

As your Trip Leader, I will be leading and coordinating all your activities in the Ecuadorian mainland and the islands. In the Quito portion we will have an extra bonus, a local guide will join us to bring more information with another point of view becoming this visit more interesting. So get ready for the adventure, get ready for the best travel experience !!!

Overseas Adventure Travel seeks out unusual experiences in places that are off the beaten track. Specifically this ecuadorian tour has been carefully designed thinking on all the possible activities for you to discover: my county, my culture, my people and off course the unique wildlife and nature that Ecuador & Galapagos have. We need from you some extra flexibility and a 100% positive attitude to have during this unique journey the best travel experience.

Make sure to be opened and get prepared to leave your comfort zone. We never know what we’ll encounter, from airline delays to unpredictable weather, rough seas and sometimes very choppy waters as we sail at night from one island to the next one; but remember you come here to discover a fascinating new world!!!
