Wanderer Reviews

Excellent experience of the weaving workshop
Read More
This was an amazing experience with Wanderbus. We had a Taller de Tejido Waorani (traditional weaving workshop) with two women from the Amazonia who taught us the whole process of weaving. They showed us how to get the fiber from a plant called chandira, how to colour it, how to make the threads and do the bracelets and necklaces.

Exceptional Experience with Wanderbus Tour Company

We have traveled to over 30 countries and has been on MANY tours, but the one by Wanderbus Tour Company was exceptional in everyway! Our private 7 day tour was coordinated by Nicholas and lead by Alex! This tour took us from the city to the mountains; the volcanos to the jungle and all stops in between!
The overall adventure with Wanderbus was fantastic.

Packages are pricier than traveling on your own with local buses, but the value outweighs the cost x5. • Visiting x2 major travel activities in one day • Safety and security for you, your bags and personal belongings at all times • A private tour guide that speaks English & Spanish who can answer any questions you may have • The bus will wait if you want to spend a bit more time at each tour.
We Loved The Wanderbus. Highly recommended

After much research, we chose to use the Wander Bus for our transportation and tours when we were in Ecuador January/February 2020, and we are so glad that we did! We took three weeks completing the entire loop. Everything about our experience was special and wonderful. It was one of the best trips we've taken so far.
So much more than a great tour!. Great for solo travelers

I was lucky enough to have Jackie as a guide. She was a wonderful way to get to know ecuador. I needed to go to Cuenca and had no idea what was in between, i booked with Wanderbus because i love the idea of a long distance hop on hop off assuming I would have to research things along the way. instead what i got was a great driver and a world class guide, illuminating so many cultural and geographical wonders along the way.
