We had an absolutely amazing trip and everything was perfect.
Highlights – there were loads of highlights. We loved Quito – especially the morning we went up the Teleferico. We could see for miles over the city to snow capped volcanoes beyond. Our Ecuador guide and driver were brilliant – Miguel and Memo. They went out or their way to make sure we saw as much as possible – we wouldn’t have seen or learned as much without them. We saw humming birds, toucans, tangers and more. The hotels were all excellent. We ate in some lovely restaurants and the guides picked some lovely places to stop for food.
I hope we benefited the local communities. We enjoyed our trips to the coffee plantation and the chocolate factory and certainly brought plenty of chocolate and coffee back with us. Everything worked out perfectly. We had a totally brilliant time. I think it is all still sinking in...

We just got home last night from a WONDERFUL, AMAZING trip!!! Thank you so much for your careful planning - everything was excellent, starting from Jorge, our driver in Quito to all the wonderful people that helped us in the Galapagos. Thanks so much, Kat - really, truly! Ecuador is a beautiful country! You really made our trip great!!

Thanks for helping us plan such an amazing trip! We had a wonderful time with very few hiccups during the week!
Highlights: the Galapagos and the boat crew, the cloud forest hikes, the hacienda in Cotopaxi, the lovely guides and tour leaders throughout.
Food was fantastic. Guides were fantastic. Organization and transportation were always spot on. Hacienda Porvenir was spectacular! The boat was great and very comfortable.
And the cloud forest lodge was a very cool experience.
I felt like we stayed in places that were locally-owned and helped to employ people in the community. The guides were all local and knew a great deal of their areas of expertise, so it felt awesome to tip them at the end and know that the money was going to help people that will turn around and teach more foreigners about Ecuador. Not once did I feel like we were in a situation that encouraged water waste or consumption of plastic bottles. The conservation efforts were apparent throughout.
Next time, I will stay longer in Ecuador and add on Otovalo!
Thank you, Tom, for everything!
