loved their trip to Ecuador

We enjoyed Ecuador immensely. We particularly liked the smaller towns: Banos, Puyo, Cotacatchi, Papallacta, and Asalusi. The nature tours, the crafts workshops, the farms and products were some of the high points. Most of all we liked our interactions with the Ecuadorans: friendliness, smiles, courtesy,

Best parts:
Danny G was an outstanding driver and guide. He sized us up immediately figuring out our limits (walking, altitude, food, etc.) and tailored the trip into a perfect fit. He was knowledgeable in everything Ecuadorian and a skilled driver who always kept our safety in mind. Emelie L did a perfect job of making sure there was always someone at the hotel, airport, boat, bus, or driver waiting for us when we arrived or departed. Her reservations, rides, and meals were always as promised.The Galapagos guides were great.
Worst parts:
The Galapagos speed boat rides were hard on our group. The three hour pounding to Santa Isabela wore out our mostly 60+ group. An airplane or a larger boat would have made for a happier trip.

I will make sure to pass on your very kind words to Danny. And moreover, I am very happy to hear that you enjoyed Ecuador so much and that the trip turned out smoothly. The speedboat between Santa Cruz and Isabela is quite rough and unfortunately there are not many other options. Hope to see you back in Ecuador soon and enjoy the holiday seasons! Best wishes, EmelieSee more
