Fernanda Machado

I am a passionate entrepreneur and I have been working in tourism for over 20 years. My passion for traveling was awakened by the experience of a lifetime when I moved to Austria on a foreign-exchange program, and later on, thanks to my travels throughout the four fascinating worlds that Ecuador has to offer.

I have a degree in Tourism Management, expertise in Ecotourism and I have studied Business Administration. I began my career in tourism as a tour guide. After gaining experience in well-established tour companies, I decided to follow one of my dreams, which was to build a tourism company of my own. My vision was to create a source of equal opportunity employment while creating life-time experiences for tourists in Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands. Today I am the CEO of Geo Reisen, one of the most reliable Tour Operators in the country.

I support cultural exchange and love getting to know people. I believe that the best way to understand someone’s culture is by speaking their language and I have been blessed by having the opportunity to learn and speak German, English, Portuguese, French, and Spanish.

I enjoy spending time with my husband and my 2 children who have actively supported my career and my relentless commitment to promoting my country as a destination for tourism.
