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!
