Andes and Amazon

Jane Wright (Andes and Amazon, Ecuador, Oct 2014)

Well, we’ve arrived back in the UK after an absolutely fantastic holiday in Ecuador to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary.

It would be impossible to pick out our favourite parts of the trip – it’s all given us such a wonderful taste of Ecuador, but we’d love to go back to the Amazon, the Rainforest and have a go at the summit of Cotapaxi.

We were so touched by the celebrations that you and Betty organised for us at Papallacta. The wine, card and chocolate pudding were lovely, and the waiters made sure we had a wonderful evening – not difficult when you have 24 hour access to the fabulous hot springs! It was so thoughtful of you, knowing it was a celebratory adventure, thank you very much indeed.

The accommodation throughout the trip was superb, and we felt very spoilt! We did a lot of travelling, and this was a great opportunity for us to see Ecuador. The itinerary worked really well, and we can’t think of a single thing we would change – except to go for longer next time! Adventure Life is a really excellent company, but only because it has people like you and Betty in Ecuador, working together to organise fabulous adventures for people like us.

We can’t talk about our wonderful experience without mentioning our guide in Ecuador – Giovanni. He’s a perfect guide – cheerful, endlessly helpful, informative and ... Read All

Hotel Silberstein

Vickie Schaedig (Hotel Silberstein, Jan 2013)

This has been my dream since I was 5 years old. I still can't believe that I actually experienced it. What a dream come true. I waited for 38 years to see it and it was worth the wait. For 10 days we never saw an unhappy person, smiles everywhere (if I lived there I would be happy too). Sitting at the window seat as we arrived I practically had to pinch myself to make sure this was real. My husband and I enjoyed wach second there. From the hotel to the day trips. When one of our day trips was cancelled due to a boat issue they quickly jumped right in rescheduled the day for us. Turns out that was as my husband puts it, "Best day ever!!!!" That day we swam with 30 sea lions!!. Unbelievable. One of our guides even took our camera and recorded the experience for us without us even asking. That will be a moment I will tell my grandchildren about. I found myself tearing up on our last cruise into port. Not wanting the experience to end. Thank you for a wonderful time.

Manatee: 5 Day Amazon Exploration: Search for the Pink Dolphin

Joan Parlin (Amazon Cruise aboard the Manatee + Mantaraya Lodge, Dec 2012)

I found your travel agency on-line, so I had no personal knowledge of you or recommendations. Boy, did we luck out!! Everything was PERFECT. Laura not only organized our trip down to the last detail, but she also managed to make me feel special and cared about. Every single part of the trip was planned perfectly for us. We were especially happy and relieved that there was always someone at the airport to meet us and take us to our hotel or lodge. And all those who met us were warm, friendly and knowledgeable. The Manatee trip on the Napo River was outstanding. The ship was clean and comfortable; the food delicious, and the guides terrific.

We were equally delighted with the Mantaraya Lodge and our guide Ruben. Since the Mantaraya Lodge and the Manatee are owned and run by the same company, our guide had worked in both places which made our conversations even more fun. Each of our guides knew all about the wildlife as well as the history and current status of Ecuador, so we learned a great deal. A really perfect trip!! I would definitely use your travel agency again.

Darwin's Islands

Avis Kalafut (Darwin's Islands, Apr 2013)

Was very happy with the trip arrangements. As far as the trip itself, it was well planned. The guides and local staff were very knowledgeable and helpful. No complaints about accommodations. The cabin at Floreana was rather rustic, but that was to be expected on a rather remote island.

Kassandra was wonderful to deal with. She was always pleasant on the phone and answered all my questions in a timely manner. I was initially considering a specific itinerary and she pointed out that I might like a different one better. I took her advice and as time went on, I realized it how much it turned out to be the correct decision.

James Austin (Darwins Islands, Dec 2012)

It was a great tour and I would recommend this to anyone who is planning to go to Galapagos in the future. The local guides and hotel staff took care of all our needs in a timely manner. It was a pleasure working with the staff and guides.
