We had such an amazing time! What a place! Everything worked like clockwork - every single flight, transfer, pick up , trip etc which is quite something considering how many trips and how travelling we did.
Guides - we spent the most time with Julio who was fantastic. He just knows everything. I ask a lot of questions and we had some great chats. He didn't rush us with anything at all. Was really glad he took us on the first snorkel, and it being just the three of us, as I'd never done it before and he just let us take our time and we never felt pressured. We didn't spend as much time with the other two guides due to the itinerary but they were also great. They really couldn’t do enough for us.
High points very hard to say - probably snorkelling but we loved the kayaking in Isabela, both the giant tortoise trips, spa on the last day, just chilling on the beach in Isabela watching the iguanas
No low points. The group trips were more rushed and the guides were more under pressure to stick to the itinerary but not a problem, just the nature of it. The kayaking in Santa Cruz was a little rushed because our flight was a bit late. If I would do anything differently I would possibly not have done the kayaking in Santa Cruz and just seen more of the town and enjoyed the lovely hotel as we just had the afternoon and evening
Accommodation in Quito, Santa Cruz and Isabela - all fantastic. Would go back to them all. The breakfasts in Quito and Santa Cruz hotels were very special - they just brought you samples of traditional, local fruit, juices and hot dishes. Meals at a farm as part of the volcano walk and at a pizza place in Isabel were excellent.
Picked the trip as always my ultimate bucket list trip, and Andean Trails after doing some research on Google and due to the initial enquiries being dealt with very well.
Thanks again for an amazing itinerary and excellent organisation.

We all had a great holiday and want to thank you and your company very much for making it all possible. All of the guides were great, very knowledgeable and we never had to wait around for anyone to pick us up - everything ran like clockwork, which considering the number of events/hotels and movements we had in our itinerary, was amazing.
Our favourite place in Ecuador was Mindo and our lodge accommodation there- what a great place and so nice to have it all to ourselves! The staff were very welcoming and the food was great and very plentiful!! I'm surprised I only put on 1/2 a pound throughout the holiday, considering all of the food we ate!
Our favourite place overall has to be Galapagos but as that was the reason for the whole holiday, it wasn't surprising - just to be so close to the various different animals was amazing and our favourite activity has to be snorkelling with the sea lions and turtles, I can't believe how close they came to us, it was truly a wonderful experience. We really enjoyed the time on Angelito and it was definitely right to finish the holiday off that way.
Thank you so much for all the time you've spent making sure that we had the holiday of a lifetime, we really do appreciate it and I'm glad we finally got there after all the Covid issues.
I've already recommended you to 2 different people who may be interested in going to Galapagos and certainly if we decide to do another South American holiday as a group, we'll definitely be back in touch having now had 2 successful and memorable holidays with you!

Students Study Food Insecurity & Climate Change in Peru University of Edinburgh students and teachers report back from Peru, where they learned how traditional farming techniques could help prevent climate change and reduce food insecurity. The team visited coastal Lima, the Cusco Highlands, and the cloud forest. For Andean Trails and our local team, it was a chance to showcase a side of Peru that many visitors may not see when passing through. It went so well that the University has already signed up its team to another Food Security tour in the spring of 2024. Learning About …
