Good, varied itinerary. Isabela Island is amazing......I would have liked more time there.
Excellent guide, disappointing that he was not still with us in Guayaquil.....not sure how we would have coped on our own in the Earthquake.

Thank you for your review, Jane - we're delighted that you rated the trip so highly.
In terms of your time in Guayaquil, we do highlight in the trip notes that your day in Guayaquil is at your leisure, so although we do not provide a guide for this day, we do make sure that a local rep accompanies you from the airport to your hotel. We’re sorry this wasn’t clear and we will make sure to update the trip notes so we detail it accordingly. Please rest assured that we always have staff on call both locally, and in the UK, to offer any necessary support and we provide their emergency numbers in your travel documents.

Last day in guayaguil was a waste of time it would be better to go back to Quito, or somehow avoid it. Would rather have gone to Seymour Norte rather than Plaza Sur.
On the whole it was an Interesting and enjoyable trip

The places visited and tour leader were excellent and gave a real incite to the country. Encountering animals that had no fear of people was an amazing experience.

Really interesting tour lead by the a great tour leader/guide. Mainland Ecuador every bit as interesting and diverse as Galápagos. This trip has been a real holiday highlight.

Mainland Equador was big surprise, much more enjoyable and interesting than I expected, not just the volcanoes the whole trip. The flora and fauna on Galapagos was unique as expected, Isabella island in particular was my favorite and I could happily stayed there a long time. Tips, with hindsight a boat based tour would save a lot of luggage moving which did become tedious

The tour is a great mix of mainland Ecuador cities/towns and countryside with the wildlife of the Galapagos islands and more. Fantastic to see volcanoes smoking away, historic Quito, colourful Otavalo, dramatic countryside and rural life. The wildlife on the Galapagos was so interesting and to follow in the thoughts of Charles Darwin was a great experience. We swam with seals, turtles, iguanas, white tipped reef sharks, pelicans and blue footed boobies, bought crayfish inexpensively from the fish market and had cocktails as the sun went down. Diego, our tour leader, was relaxed, so knowledgeable and helpful to all - highly recommended. Hotels were not top notch but all were fine and some excellent for style and location.

Trip to Seymour Islands - a photography feast. Also seeing volcanoes erupting - probably a once in a lifetime experience.

We did not find nights in October cold so did not need woolly hats/gloves/scarves etc but raincoat a definite must.

A week in the mountains and a week with exceptional wildlife. All that is needed to make it perfect is a good crowd and decent weather !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
