Treasures of The Galapagos

10 Day Ecuador Itinerary

Words cannot express the wonderful experiences we had in Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands. We tried to explain our enthusiasm, but words become inadequate.

This is the best trip ever...

We try to explain our enthusiasm for our trip to our friends, but words become inadequate and so, we simply encourage them to arrange their own adventure to Ecuador/Galapagos through Anywhere.com! The accommodations were wonderful. The staff at Hotel Fuente de Piedra and Casa Opuntia were both accommodating. They went above and beyond to give recommendations and assisting us when our tour plans changed.

What’s the most memorable thing about our trip?

We enjoyed all the tours we had at the Galapagos Islands. At Santa Fe Island, we got to enjoy snorkeling and even saw sea lion pups! The guides were good at encouraging group interactions and left no questions unanswered. Our private driver was an enthusiastic cheerleader for the country, knowledgeable, and always eager to explain cool things to do and see. We had an exceptional meal in Quito per his recommendation (traditional Ecuadorian potato soup).

We can’t wait to come back again...

We are anxious to start planning a return trip to explore more of the mainland of Ecuador. Thank you Percy, for your patience with all of our change requests. It turned out to be an amazing adventure!
