We had a great tour with Diego and driver Antonio, they had excellent recommendations for places to visit and eat and had a comfortable relaxing time. The visit to Mindo was especially fun, from ziplines to waterfall hikes to great pizza for lunch. Would highly recommend to anyone traveling in the area, especially families looking to experience the sights and experiences around Quito!

I decided to visit the Galapagos Islands in January of 2020 at pretty much the last minute, so I contacted Diego Altamirano at Barefoot Expeditions for help in getting it organized. I met him about 5 years ago, and was happy to have his guidance in doing this tour. He knows the islands well, and was able to arrange great tours for me using a combination of an 8 day boat tour on the Beagle and a 4 day island hopping tour based out of Puerto Ayora (Santa Cruz) and Puerto Baquerizo Moreno (San Cristobal). I was able to see and get close to all the varieties of land and water animals that Galapagos is famous for, experienced the amazing variety of habitats and geology on 7 of the islands in the archipelago, and met a wonderful variety of people along the way. Accommodations were perfect, weather was very nice, and Galapagos is simply amazing. There is just no other place like it that I know of. Diego and Barefoot Expeditions have a great deal of experience organizing tours of the Galapagos Islands. Diego knew the tours, tour operators and hosts personally, and he provided a wonderful customized experience of the islands for me. I do not know how it could have been any better; it was simply fabulous! Highly recommend Barefoot Expeditions!
