Gabby is super nice and we have nothing but praise for her and her agency. Galapagos is a very special place. In general, we are happy with our trip. The ship was nice, as was the crew, and the guides are very knowledgeable. There were some downsides, but they should have nothing to do with Gabby. 1. One of the passangers got positive with covid, which lost us activities for one afternoon. However, we do not consider this a fault of the operator, just bad luck. 2. This we however did not like: hygiene conditions could be better. There was a widespread illness among many passangers, us also, that included vomiting, diarrhea, etc. It had nothing to do with sea sickness. For us, it appeared on our 10th day, and we had no previous issues. We strongly suspect the origin is food. At least once the potatoes were undercooked. And this is to say nothing against the cook in particular. It is not easy to work in such a small kitchen. We do consider however that the activities we lost due to this food poisoning are the fault of the operator. 3. We noticed at least once that our dirty towels were laid on our beds as they were new ones. Perhaps by mistake. 4. In our cabin, there was always some water below the bed, splashing around with the swaying of the ship. We warned of this once, but it didn't change. 5. Our itinerary was changed in a way that Kicker’s Rock snorkel was replaced with beach snorkeling with no good reason. We asked the guide why, and he just said that others snorkel, but we will not. This was a big disappointment as this snorkel is renowned in Galapagos. All in all, it was not a perfect trip due to food poisoning and leaving out Kicker’sRock, but other things were mostly up there and we were satisfied with them.

Gabby from Ecuador Family Tours was fantastic. She was able to accommodate me in very short notice and made sure everything ran smoothly. I would highly recommend going through Ecuador family tours.

Amazing!!!! Gabby and Johnny of Ecuador Family Tours gave us such above and beyond personal friendly service that added a special factor to our trip. We could enjoy all the sites and activities that much more because our 2 helpful travel connoisseurs made everything else so smooth. We even got some bonus snacks and local food to try at different locations because they thought of us. God bless you all Josh

Wow, Gabby and Johnny are incredible. They helped us plan a last minute Galapagos and Quito trip, and we couldn't have been happier. We did the Quilotoa tour, Quito City tour, and Mindo Forest tour with them. They truly can do it all - transportation, food, day trips, etc. They even picked us up from the airport to take us to our hotel so we didn't have to worry about finding a taxi/Uber late at night. You can't go wrong having them handle your itinerary - they are locals and great people!
