A FAMILY STORY

ABOUT QUASAR EXPEDITIONS

In 1986, a young couple from Ecuador had a dream that was simple enough: to show the treasures of the Galapagos Islands to the world.

Eduardo Diez and Dolores Gangotena believed then, that through sustainable tourism they could keep our natural treasures intact for future generations to enjoy. Over 3 decades later their dream lives on, as Quasar Expeditions continues to lead the field as pioneers of unique and meaningful travel experiences in South America.

Today the company is run by the entire Diez family, with their three sons involved in different positions within the business. The family spirit continues to be the driving force behind the entire Quasar team and the video here tells the tale of this inspiring family story.
