Here is another video of our "Introduction to Ecuador" Tour - a 12-day tour. We made this in 2012, when the route was not completely paved. Ecuador has the highest investment in infrastructure in the Americas which means that there are thousands of newly paved roads. This route is now completely paved.

There are still also thousands of unpaved roads here and we offer offroad, dual-sport and paved motorcycle adventures...

Introduction to Ecuador 12-day Motorcycle Tour (Trailer) from Ecuador Freedom Bike Rental on Vimeo.

http://freedombikerental.com/ Ecuador is one of the most geographically, culturally, and biologically diverse countries in the world. Amazing landscapes encompassing rainforests,Andean mountain ranges, coastal ranges, deserts and tropical grasslands make this South American country a haven for astonishing wildlife, stunning panoramas as well as rich anthropological and cultural sites. This tour will take you to all of the best that continental Ecuador has to offer on this absolutely unforgettable trip. We will visit all of the major regions of continental Ecuador - the Andes, the Coast and the Amazon Basin. We will have time to explore the major cities of Quito, Guayaquil, Loja, Manta, Esmeraldas and Cuenca, including many places declared "World Heritage Sites" by the United Nations. We will experience the various cuisines and cultures of Ecuador such as the creole cuisine in Esmeraldas, fresh coffee from plantations in Loja, fresh chocolate from the cacao plantations near Guayaquil and Manta. One of the things that sets a motorcycle trip apart from other types of tourism are the scents, fragrances and aromas that you can experience while riding - you can't experience these while travelling in a bus or car. Ecuador provides you with a feast for all your senses - you will pass through brilliant fields of multi-colored roses, see wild orchids in the rainforests, smell the eucalyptus and pine forests, ripening bananas, and ride through salty mist along the shore. You'll smell the fresh, wood-oven baked bread in colonial cities. The tour will also take you off the beaten track to explore some of the wild areas of Ecuador. It is one of the most adventurous tours that you can do, giving you access to untouched wildlife and unforgettable insight into how native Ecuadorians have lived for centuries.

One of our newest tours is the High Andes, Deep Amazon Tour. It is a dual-sport adventure with about 60% offroad riding. What's different about this tour is that we go where roads do not go. We take the bikes aboard a motorized canoe for a 100-mile journey into the Amazon Jungle. We visit communities that are only accessible by boat.

We have made a short video about the tour and are currently working on videos for each day of the tour.

Here is the tour summary video.

Hey Court
It looks like you are trying to embed Vimeo and Facebook videos. I've had good success with embedding YouTube videos by using the technique here Learn How to Embed a Video Clip Here

Search on that thread for Vimeo videos - don't know about Facebook videos.

PM me if you still have problems.


As an aside, I found Freedom Bike Rental to be a first class outfit. When I was in Ecuador, they were very helpful in providing routing and ideas for my travels around Ecuador. It's really nice arriving at a country like this and finding someone really knowledgeable about their region and willing to share their wealth of information.

They also went out of their way to help me get a couple of tires I needed which really saved me a bunch of aggravation.

I found with using IE or Firefox that you had to click the "Switch Editor Mode" which is the box in the upper left corner that kind of looks like A/A.
You can then insert the code for the video. With Chrome, you don't need to switch editor mode.
