Galextur, your trusted operator in Ecuador 

Werner and Gabriele Silberstein arrived in Ecuador as part of a German Technical Cooperation (GTZ) education project more than 25 years ago. Attracted by the landscapes and culture of Ecuador, they decided to settle in the country and formed GALEXTUR in 1993. 

 We are an Ecuadorian tour operator with more than 24 years of experience in the national and international tourism market, always standing out by offering a personalized service to each of our customers and having an innovative selection of destinations in Ecuador and the rest of the world. 

We are direct operators and owners of the HOTEL CITY ART SILBERSTEIN, located in the city of Quito, an exclusive and cozy place in the tourist center of the capital with a total of 10 rooms that allows us to provide our guests a personalized service during their stay. 

In the Galapagos Islands in Puerto Ayora we offer the services of our HOTEL SILBERSTEIN, the best alternative of lodging in the Enchanted Islands for holidays, corporate events or extensions pre / post cruises in the islands. With 22 rooms, the hotel has a policy of environmental care and handles a total relaxation concept. AQUA, our Bar – Restaurant also offers a wide variety of exquisite gastronomic options to those who visit it. 

We also market ASTREA, an authorized yacht for naturalistic and diving cruises in the Galapagos with 8, 5 or 4 day programs with capacity for 16 passengers. It allows passengers to visit unique places in the Galapagos Islands that few are able to experience. 

 With our personalized customer service, we pride ourselves in putting together packages for individual passengers and groups, catering to your specific needs and based on the experience you want. We offer a wide variety of options to choose from: visits to the Galapagos Islands, diving to explore the marine life, and tours in the mainland of Ecuador. 

 We are an agency authorized by IATA to issue air tickets which allows us to provide a complete service to our customers. We are also part of LATC, a network formed by the best professionals in the Latin American tourism industry to offer services in different destinations.
