Travelled with 15 other friends and acquaintances; one of the others had planned the entire trip together Yugen Earthside and other local partners. It was a phenomenal experience!! Everything, from the communication beforehand, airport pickups, transfers, flights, Galapagos cruise (the crew! the Bonita Yacht! David the guide!) and back was fantastic! Highly recommended!!

This was a life-changing adventure for me and my son. The days exploring Quito and the surrounding Andean volcanoes and cloud forest revealed surprises at every stop. The planned and unplanned activities gave us a glimpse at the richness of this region. Our guides were amazing, each knowledgeable and interesting and fun to be with. I learned so much from them. Once we arrived in the Galapagos and into the care of David and the crew of the Bonita, the magic of the islands enveloped us in its primeval web. Each day was a new adventure in geology, biology and climate. We saw animals and plants we did not know existed. We learned so much about the local ecology and uplifting news regarding the restoration of ecosystems. Our home on the sea was comfortable and relaxing. The crew was attentive and quickly learned the specific needs of each passenger for each activity. I cannot say enough about how hard they worked to provide us with such an amazing experience. Our naturalist guide, David, could not have been better. He is so knowledgeable about the regional ecology, but also about so many other social and human aspects of the region. And while his attention focused on ensuring that we had the best experience, he was also a valiant guardian of the plants and animals that we were visiting, reminding us to tread lightly and respectfully to ensure everyone's safety. If I could give 10 out of 5 stars, I would.

This was a great trip! Right from the onset with the information provided by Yugen Earthside and TerraSur, over the pickups, transfers, guide on the boat, guide and driver on the day tours in Quito / around Cotopaxi, airport transfers etc. Even mid-travel changes to my itinerary they accommodated w/o issues. Highly recommend!

The trip was everything we dreamed of. Guides and Porters were amazing and friendly and helped us make it to the top as well as see every African animal! Food was good and energizing but repetitive. We were eating for sustenance. Would recommend but Yuegen Earthside and Eco-Africa.

Thoughtful, detailed, cost-conscious, and a pleasure to work with - I would HIGHLY recommend Yugen Earthside's services. My partner and I worked with Yugen Earthside to plan an international trip to New Zealand in November 2022. Yugen Earthside helped us craft a highly-customized itinerary that provided us with unique tour opportunities, while allowing time and space for self-guided experiences. It was the perfect balance. Neither of us had been to New Zealand and greatly appreciated the thoughtful recommendations based on our preferences, desired pace, and budget. From start to finish, communication was smooth, detailed, and timely. Yugen Earthside also checked in multiple times during our travels which we greatly appreciated. We would highly recommend their services for group or self-guided travelers.
