Laura and Ishai are the consummate hosts and experts on the best experiences in all of Ecuador. Laura planned an itinerary that included 3 nights land based Galapagos experience, 4 nights partying in Montanita, 3 nights Banos and 3 nights Quito. Every tour was exceptional. Wildlife experiences in Galapagos were life changing. We basically did everything in Banos...so awesome! Cotopaxi... More

They were very slow to respond and at times no response if I did not follow up with them. We had planned to do 3 tours with them, but due... More

I had a really great experience booking my 4 day trip to the galapagos with Ishai. We booked the trip literally 6 hours before we left to the airport. Everything was taken care of, from the drivers to the tour guides and everything in-between, it was planned perfectly. Thank you.
