We did a two-week tour of arranged by SouthAmerica.travel in mainland Ecuador in April 2019. Everything went a smooth as clockwork. Our guide/driver was great - and indispensable, as we speak no Spanish! The itinerary was excellent, and some of the places we stayed at were truly amazing - we could have spent days at San Agustin de Callo, rather than just an overnight stay. If we visit South America again, we'll certainly do it with SouthAmerica.travel.

Hotel Quadrifolio was excellent. Such helpful, nice, and welcoming people that work there. A beautiful hotel and a awesome location in the Old City. The mint lemonade welcome drink they had was my wife’s favorite. The room was so relaxing and beautiful. Breakfast was great. We had some delicious arepas con huevos there.

All the transfers were also excellent! Always on time, helpful, and professional. The old city tour was a great way to see the city and get acquainted.

Hotel Punta Faro was remarkable. Such a beautiful, peaceful, and relaxing stay. The staff there was genuine, helpful, and fun. The boat ride out was a bit long and bumpy but that just comes with traveling via boat. The food was delicious! Plenty of options but the quality of each item never suffered. We loved our time on the island. The room with that view was beautiful. The open air shower was a neat surprise too.

Overall we loved our entire trip and can’t wait to travel back to Colombia!
It was the perfect honeymoon. Also Marty, our travel consultant, was awesome to work with during the whole process. We can't recommend him and enough. We are so thankful for all of his help planning the trip!

Absolutely brilliant experience with SouthAmerica.travel. The trip planning assistance was first class and on the trip itself, the entire 25 days ran like clockwork from flights, accommodation, guides, etc and we could not fault any of it. It made for a wonderful, life changing vacation and we could not recommend SouthAmerica.travel highly enough. If you're going to South America, use these guys and you will not be disappointed.

I´ve learned so much about Peruvian culture and history. One of the best experiences was meeting all the people, like the Ecoamazonia lodge guide Elmer, Sol in Cusco!.
