Fernanda Machado

I am a passionate entrepreneur who’s been working in the tourism industry for over 20 years. My passion for traveling came from a chance of a life-time experience when I moved to Austria on a foreign-exchange program, and later from my travels throughout the four fascinating worlds that Ecuador has to offer.

I hold a degree in Tourism Management, expertise in eco-tourism and I’ve studied Business Administration. I started working in tourism as a tour guide and then after my work experience in some well-established companies in the travel industry, I decided to follow one of my dreams: to start a tourism company with a vision to generate a source of equal opportunity employment, while creating life-time experiences for tourists in Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands. I am the CEO of Geo Reisen, one of the most reliable tour operators in Ecuador.

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, I’ve been blessed to have the opportunity to learn and speak German, English, Portuguese, French and Spanish.

In my daily life I enjoy spending time with my husband and two children who have actively supported my business life and my relentless commitment to promote my country as a tourism destination.
