I am Rebecca Braak. I have a Masters Degree in International Management. Several years ago, I decided to go to Ecuador to volunteer on a horse ranch in the Andes. It was a new culture for me, a new language, but also a new opportunity to start from scratch. That’s when I started Rebecca Adventure Travel, a Tour company located in Quito, Ecuador. My goal with this company is to design the most impressive trips through the Galapagos Islands, Ecuador, Colombia and Peru. With my experience with horses, tourism and business, both in Holland and Ecuador, I am sure these tours will offer an incredible experience. All tours are personally selected by me, and co-hosted by Andres Reinoso, who has an MBA on Tourism Enterprises and more than 10 years of experience in the tourism industry.
