This was one of my favorite trips. The itinerary was good, our tour guide was excellent and Indus small group tours allow for more flexibility more time at locations when everyone agreed to make small changes. Their prices are also very reasonable even as a single traveler.

I really enjoyed all the places I visited. Restaurants were mediocre, but hotels were nice and some simply outstanding. The high score speaks more about the overall experience, which was everything I hoped for, and less about the details.

From start to finish the service was excellent. All flights down to Ecuador including the Galapagos were on time, the representatives both on the mainland and the islands were exceptional and all hotels were clean, centrally located - first rate. I like the fact that we toured the Galápagos Islands from the comfort of hotels not while staying on a boat. People we know who did a boat stay were jealous of our accommodations and experiences. Viewing the majestic tourtosies is a bucket list experience.The mainland tour was also first rate. We saw the contrasts of Ecuador- from the majestic Andes Mountains to boating through the jungle of the Amazon River. The Eco lodge we stayed at on the Amazon River was a magnificent experience. Viewing the major cities of Quito and others allows you to experience the influence of Spain in early Ecuadorean history. Loved the food- no complaints. The only downside was the connecting flights on our return to Canada - not the best but we survived. As experienced travellers we weigh the good vs the bad...overall a five star adventure. We highly recommend this tour.
