Juan Pablo is an amazing tour organizer. From day 1, he was patient and really helped us make our time in Ecuador special. I ask a lot of questions for a month and he answered all of it and tailored to our every need. Once we got to Galapagos, we never had a single problem and we saw that some other people with different agencies had problems with boats and such. I cannot recommend Pablo enough! If you are coming to Galapagos, Juan Pablo is your man.
