If your looking for a trip where you are really taken care of this is the trip. They would pick us up and make sure we knew where to go everyday. Super nice guides and Galapagos is truly amazing. We went to Santa Cruz, Isabela and san Cristobal. They were all a little different so if you have time I suggest you spend time on all three. The amount of wildlife you will see is just amazing.

Thanks to Alejandro, at GuideEcudor for putting together a great trip to the Galapagos for us! He was always easy to communicate with and his people were on time, helpful and informative. I really enjoy snorkeling and the trip was full of great destinations. Will definitely use again if needed.

Cannot imagine a better guide. Alejandro is brilliant. He will listen to your interests and craft a customized tour just for you. He does sightseeing, adventure, and relocation tours. We had the relocation tour, since we're thinking of retiring in Ecuador. We also wanted to do some sightseeing. We had a perfect mix of getting to know areas and seeing some of the attractions. And when we had unexpectedly good weather, we got to work in some extra sightseeing. He picked some amazing hotels as well. We recommend Guide Ecuador and Alejandro Jacome 100%.
I firstly went to Mindo, which does have some interesting things to see although it is heavily touristed. The driver from GuideEcuador ensured that we were there (at Nambillobefore the crowds Maquipucuna Lodge is in a less visited par t of the cloud forest and is agreat place to watch birds, particularly humming birds. It's also somewhere where one could see the Andean bear, although I did not as it was not the right time of year for them. The whole experience was great there as apart from being very friendly they were also extremely knowlegable about the wildlife. I recomend strongly going on as many of the organised walks as possible, as the guides spotted much more wildlife than I would have seen alone. GuideEcuador did a very good job of organising the trip and were excellent at communicating any changes to me. I had a great time on this trip and I thnk most people would also enjoy it, so I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them who is looking for a tailor made trip in Ecuador.

We had an amazing time. Galapagos was phenomenal, the tour guides were really great: excellent English, very accommodating and everything was well organized. We didn't have to worry about anything. Alejandro was very communicative and responsive, and gave us excellent advice for other portions of our trip that were not included in the package. Highly recommend!!
