The tour operator:

We chose EC Travel (www.ectravel.com.ec) as it was recommended by some of the regulars on the forum. We had an incredible experience with them, Rafael was by far one of the most courteous, responsible and kind people I ever met. Great transportation (brand new SUVs) and great expertise. We highly recommend this tour operator for your Ecuador and Galapagos experience.
