THE FAMILY AND HISTORY
Werner and Gabriele Silberstein arrived in Ecuador nearly 25 years ago, as part of a German educational project (GTZ). They were drawn to Ecuador’s landscapes and culture and decided to settle down in the country, forming GALEXTUR in 1993.
In 1998 the family transformed the former Angermeyer Pension into Angermeyer Hotel. This cemented Galextur’s role as a pioneering operator of combination tours (hotel and yacht) on the Galapagos Islands. In 2002 the hotel came under sole ownership of the Silberstein family, and became HOTEL SILBERSTEIN.
Werner and Gabriele believed in Ecuador, and thanks to their tenacity and determination, GALEXTUR is now a company with nearly 50 employees and has extended its operations to include the City Art Boutique Hotel and Dive Center Silberstein.
