Bridge Intercultural Travel is an Ecuadorian Company based in Quito, offering unique programs based on 5 pillars; Learning Spanish, Volunteering, Personal Growth / Career Orientation, Travelling and Cultural Immersion. We believe that travelling in a country should be much more than just sightseeing. It should be about getting to know the culture, traditions and activities of the local people, learning their language, tasting the unique cuisine of the various regions, even learning the local dance moves, watching locally produced movies and reading the best short stories from its literature; truly experiencing all the country has to offer. We believe that Ecuador offers all you can experience in Latin America in one country, providing us with the perfect setting for our intercultural programs.
