Intern’s experiences

From the office you have great views over Quito

Read here about the experiences that our interns have made during their internship in our office in Quito.

Maria's experience as an intern at

“I had been an intern at for more than half a year and I enjoyed this time a lot. Working in a small, family run office in the Ecuadorian capital Quito at about 2800 m altitude was a unique experience.

Since the office is so small, I received tasks from almost all departments. Sometimes it was a real challenge to get organized with all the different inputs. My main work was supporting Online-Marketing and Sales.

In the area of Online-Marketing I helped improving the website of the company. This was one of the tasks that I liked most. I learned a lot about working with WordPress and I liked that there was a visible result of the work. Online-Marketing also included blog writing and translating as well as creating Facebook and Instagram posts.

Sometimes there had to be designed information or promotion flyers.

Supporting the sales department meant checking availability for hotels and Galapagos yachts via telephone or email, block hotels and yachts for future confirmations. When clients were interested in a tour I sometimes wrote the possible travel program and once clients were confirmed I helped writing the travel vouchers.

Another important job was renewing a sustainability certificate for which I collected the necessary information and material.

I really liked working at On the one hand because of the varied and interesting work and on the other hand because of the warm, familiar atmosphere in the office, having lunch together and the team excursions.

Thanks for all, and best wishes for the future!”
