Metropolitan Touring - One history, a thousand inspiring storiesMetropolitan Touring is a destination management company (DMC), founded in 1953, known for its excellent curated programmes featuring authentic local life, top destination highlights and exquisite lodging options in a framework of sustainable tourism. We are a proudly regional company, with offices and ground operations in Ecuador, Peru and Colombia, as well as sales offices in the US and UK. In Ecuador, the company and its holding group are the proud owners and operators of three expedition cruise vessels in Galapagos (Santa Cruz II, Yacht Isabela II and Yacht La Pinta) and three exceptional hotel properties, two of which (the Finch Bay Galapagos Hotel, located on Santa Cruz Island, and Mashpi Lodge, located in Quito’s mega-diverse Choco bioregion) form part of the exclusive National Geographic Unique Lodges of the WorldTM collection. Casa Gangotena boutique hotel, a fabulously refurbished iconic property offering traditional Ecuadorian hospitality in Quito’s historic old town, rounds out the company’s properties on the Ecuadorian mainland. In Peru, our local office joined the Metropolitan Touring team in 2007, bringing with it almost 50 years of experience sharing the country’s wonders with the world. This in-depth local knowledge allows our Destination Experts to offer visitors off-the-beaten-path adventures in traditional destinations such as Lima, Machu Picchu, Cuzco, and the Sacred Valley as well as to create custom-made itineraries based on special interests, such as gastronomy, photography, or history, amongst others. In Colombia, our local office, established in 1984 and operating as Metropolitan Touring since 2010, shows the best of the country’s fascinating culture and riveting natural landscapes to travelers -in-the-know, who appreciate the carefully-planned itineraries and consistent attention to detail. The pulsating cities of Bogota and Medellin, the colonial history of Cartagena, and the ongoing dedication to generations’ knowledge of traditional farming techniques in the Coffee Cultural Region continue to inspire our guests. . Metropolitan Touring strives constantly to reduce its environmental footprint in the pristine areas where it operates as well to have a positive impact in the communities where we work.
