Tourism by TRAIN in Ecuador – Tren Crucero Ecuador

A new Touristic Train service is ready in Ecuador – Tren Crucero – following an investment of some $280 million, and the rehabilitation of 456 km (283 miles) of the country’s railway system. This amazing Ecuadorian Tour service aims at the high-end of the market that is ready to ride the rails.

The “Tren Crucero” will travel from the Guayaquil on the Coast to Quito, or vice versa, with overnight stays in traditional haciendas, and between visits to colorful indigenous markets, museums, towns, farms and national parks aboard the innovative carriages.

They offer 1 to 4-day adventure tours which will be an experience for all your senses. This will bring you into close contact with the Ecuadorian people and the landscapes of the Andes and Coastal regions. A once of a life time experience while riding aboard real comfortable custom-designed carriages – and, the train is using restored 20th-century steam locomotives.

 The route includes the dramatic “Devil’s Nose” segment which connects the Andes and the Coast, the main reason the Ecuadorian system is regarded as “the most difficult railway in the world”.

 The four thematically-styled carriages will carry 54 guests through different fascinating regions, people and culture. Two of the four carriages are furnished with tables and chairs where guests can enjoy a light aperitif, read a book or simply enjoy the scenery picturistic view through large windows. One of these coaches is equipped with personal lockers for storage, while a fourth one offers a coffee bar where the crew will serve beverages and snacks including Ecuadorian favorites.

 The last carriage of the Tren Crucero consists of two sections: the first with a lounge area for socializing, and the second with an open terrace where guests can travel viewing all the elements as the train winds through Ecuador’s majestic landscapes.

 Train trips includes: the train ride, overnights in selected hotels or haciendas, Ecuadorian meals in each region, guided excursions to main natural and cultural attractions, bilingual English/Spanish guides, excursions aboard a tourist bus.

 The crew who will assist guests on board has been hand-picked and trained to the highest standards in customer service. This team will be led by the Train Director, responsible for the train operators, guides, stewards and all service staff.
