Just about to head home from our Ecuador adventures. We saw a ton of amazing stuff and met some awesome people.
The Galápagos Islands are packed with must see wildlife and sights. We lucked out and saw a bunch, the only miss was cloud cover on our trip to the Volcano, and while the Adventure Journeys guides can work wonders, they can’t control the weather. At that point I knew 100% we had made the right choice. Adventure Journeys has their stuff together (they did change names recently to Adventure Journeys). We met a bunch of travelers who had booked with Adventure Journeys and everything we heard was positive. The highlight of the trip was our guide to the Amazon, Christian. He was a fountain of knowledge and had a very outgoing personality. He pretty much made the kayak trip down the Amazon. Don’t get me wrong, trips down the Amazon would be awesome to start, but we definitely had the best guide on the PLANET and that made it more than awesome. Our philosophy as a family is don’t pass up a chance to try something. From eating bugs (grubs) in the local village, to zipping through the canopy/sub-canopy on a wire, we did it. We had one extra day before our departure and Christian arranged a small side excursion for us with a guide up the volcano, Cotopaxi. Our guide Sebastian knew a lot, had great taste in beer and cheese, and was super helpful. Amazing views at 16000ft and despite the lack of oxygen we’re all still semi functional. I would recommend Adventure Journeys without hesitation. I look forward to if/when they expand their brand to include surfing etc in their adventure
