My husband and I just got back from the "Ecuador and Galapagos" trip with Friendly Planet. It was our first trip with them and we are ready to sign up for another! It was a fabulous trip and extremely well planned and conducted. We were impressed with every aspect of the trip and felt it was everything we had hoped. The tour guides were knowledgeable, on time, and gave us a wonderful insight into the culture of Ecuador. The Galapagos portion on the M/N Santa Cruise was outstanding! Each of the guides on had in-depth knowledge of the wildlife and provided a thoroughly enjoyable experience. Thanks for a great trip!

In writing our evaluation, we did not have enough room to tell you about our guide, Patricio. He was, without a doubt, the most friendly, patient, and knowledgeable guide we have had out of many tours we have taken. We hope that you will pass this information on to the Friendly Planet office in Ecuador, as we feel that he should be given special recognition for the superb representation of your company. We had two medical emergencies with travelers in our group. He was able to get doctors for them and arrange for one of them to join our trip the next day. Another time, while telling us of the exportation from Ecuador of roses, he asked our driver, Jose, to stop for a moment. He came back a few minutes later with roses for all of the women on the bus! These were just two of the many kindnesses he extended to our group. He really understands the meaning of "guest service" and is to be commended for the way he conducts a tour. We came away feeling like honorary Ecuadorians!
