Tamer created us a brilliant trip to the Galápagos Islands which turned out to be the most wonderful experience. Tamer was extremely helpful with all our requests and very quick at responding and assisted us beyond what was required! What we loved were the personal touches including greeting us as Quito airport and checking in with us whilst we were out there, not to mention my generous bday gift!

Tamer created us a brilliant trip to the Galápagos Islands which turned out to be the most wonderful experience. Tamer was extremely helpful with all our requests and very quick at responding and assisted us beyond what was required! What we loved were the personal touches including greeting us as Quito airport and checking in with us whilst we were out there, not to mention my generous bday gift! All tours and pickups were smooth with no issues. We had lovely hotels with excellent views, friendly staff and were all clean. Acacia hotel was our personal favourite. All three islands were beautiful. We would highly recommend the Pinzon snorkelling tour, Kicker rock, the volcano Hike aswell as the trip to Espagnola! Memorable guides include Vivienne from Santa Cruz who took us on the highlands tours to see the amazing giant tortoises and Sol in San Cristobal. We will be forever grateful to Tamer for organising this trip for us who even went out of his way to help my husband plan something nice for my birthday. We would highly recommend!

A successful trip! we saw so much- sea turtles, rays, sharks and played with sea lions. Boat was comfortable and food great too

Sierra Negra volcano - Speedboat to Santa Cruz

The hike took us about 5 hours and was more challenging than expected but definitely rewarding with stunning views!

Dhaarica & Thaj, it was an exceptional pleasure of mine meeting you and working with you planning this bday trip; you are such a wonderful couple and deserve nothing less than perfect :). To know you have enjoyed every detail of this tour (and I will convey your appreciation to Vivienne and all hotels), and that we were part of creating such memorable moments for you means the world to us! It is what keeps our flare ignited and feeds our passion (in Kimkim and Responsible Travel) to burnish... read more

Dhaarica & Thaj, it was an exceptional pleasure of mine meeting you and working with you planning this bday trip; you are such a wonderful couple and deserve nothing less than perfect :). To know you have enjoyed every detail of this tour (and I will convey your appreciation to Vivienne and all hotels), and that we were part of creating such memorable moments for you means the world to us! It is what keeps our flare ignited and feeds our passion (in Kimkim and Responsible Travel) to burnish our performance and offer more to our precious travelers. I learned so much from Thaj :) and I'm so so happy that everything went as planned ;) Love the photos and the smiles on your faces! I hope to meet you again soon, whether in London (as the invitation was so much appreciated and accepted :)) or one more time here in Ecuador, as this beautiful country, honestly, has a lot more to offer. Thanks a million :)
Yours,
Tamer
