THE BEAUTY

The Galapagos Islands stunning landscapes, flora, wildlife, and underwater wonders resemble another world. The best way to visit them is on a cruise.

Cruising on a first-class ship like “The Legend” through one of the most beautiful archipelagos in the world is an experience that you will remember forever.

Ecuador’s rainforest is regarded as the most species-rich section of the Amazon. Known as the Oriente, Ecuador’s Amazon Rainforest is home to astounding biodiversity, with more than 300 species of mammal, 800 species of fish, and 350 species of reptile.

THE Guides

The tour will be led by David and Adina Lebor with over two decades of experience leading Jewish groups all over the world.

The main guide and chief of operations on the trip is Nir Azai of Mundo Trip, Israel. Nir lived in South America for many years and has been guiding tour groups in South America for decades. 

In each venue, we will also have local trackers, guides, and naturalists that are experts in their field.

THE TOURS

  • The coastal town of Guayaquil, full of old cobblestone streets and narrow lanes will take you back in time.

  • Spend your days snorkeling, hiking, and interacting with the mellow animal inhabitants sailing from island to island on a deluxe yacht. 
  • Spend Friday & Shabbat exploring the high-altitude capital city, Quito, one of the oldest South American cities and a UNESCO Heritage Site.

What our guests say

Thank You David and Adina for a wonderful and well-organised tour. You created a wonderful atmosphere amongst the group.

Thank you everyone for helping make this trip so amazing. It honestly felt like one big family

Had dinner with a friend last night, and found myself gushing about my Iceland trip: the sights, the tour guides, the people on the tour, the food. It was a special trip.

 

Chaya Kohl

It was truly an absolutely terrific trip in all ways:

In the organized touring, in the beautiful places we visited, in the inspiring Hashkafah that everything was presented with, in the wonderful, friendly group of people we shared the trip with, in the delicious meals, in the pleasant, loving, and joyous manner of our hosts. It was a summer to remember.

The greatest trip we have ever experienced!

Thanks to David and Adina and their wonderful team.
See you soon ❤

Pinhas and Léa Kerendian

Dear David and Adina,

We've been on many tours over the years, but this one was extra-special. The attention to detail, the "service with a (constant) smile", and the outstanding touring and catering were unparalleled.

We're so happy to have gotten to know you both and look forward to touring with you in the future.

Fondly,

Tamar and Jay Bindiger

You are wonderful guides and very special people. All your planning made for a wonderful trip.
