Responsible Travel Ecuador packs a heck of a punch and a very good one that is! - Apr 5 - Apr 19, 2021

I was fortunate to be paired with Daniel at Responsible Travel Ecuador through KimKim. This was my third time booking a trip on KimKim and once again it does not disappoint! The 15 day tour I did started out in Galapagos Island which was efficient since you need PCR Test to go to the Island and I did everything from boat tours, snorkeling, walking tour, lava tunnel and a day of relaxation! The tour continued to Quito where I was given two insightful tours from Andrea who also is from Responsible Travel which included walks around Old City as well as the churches in the area as well as seeing the middle of the Equator and Volcano that overlooks the city of Quito. Unfortunately Cotopaxi was closed for maintenance but driver Marco Herrara took me to Quilotoa which was a fantastic sight to see and he did an amazing job explaining Ecuador on the way there as well as Quilotoa and the story behind the volcanoes. I ended the tour in Cuyabeno which was a unique 3 day tour in Amazon area and the tour guides were amazing with the walking tours as well as boat tours. Javier was a great driver for the pick ups to and from the airport and I was lucky enough to stay in wonderful hotels such as Deja Vu in Santa Cruz, Hotel Vieja Cuba in Quito and Nicky's Amazon Lodge in Cuyabeno. I recommend you to have your trip in Ecuador planned with Responsible Travel!

Hola Bryan!
WOW! Thank you so much for such an awesome review! I actually took a long on replying to this review because I was showing it to Marco, Andrea, Javier, and our pals at Cuyabeno! We are very happy that you had such a great time in Ecuador. I truly hope we managed to forge unforgettable memories and hope to see you again in Ecuador for that pending trip to Cotopaxi and that pending post-pandemic drink!
Thank you for the good vibes, and see you again someday :)

Best regards from the middle of the world,
Daniel
