"This was a trip of a lifetime and my spouse and I hit the ground running as soon as we got off the plane, seeing giant tortoises, lava tubes, the Charles Darwin Research Center, marine iguanas and every kind of bird imaginable. The guides were knowledgeable, fantastic, and personable."

We booked a custom adventure to Ecuador and Peru with Surtrek, [whose agent] was an exceptional asset to making the trip memorable and pleasant. Together, we assembled a three week tour starting in Quito, Ecuador and traveling to the Yasuni jungle along the Napo river, then to a cruise in the Galapagos Islands, and onward to Cusco, Peru, the Sacred Valley, and Machu Picchu. At each step of the way someone from Surtrek was there to assist with our transfers and provide excellent knowledge of local history/culture. We never felt abandoned or vulnerable in a foreign country.

"Our two-week trip to Peru and the Galapagos was perhaps the best trip we've ever taken. We usually make all of our own arrangements when we travel. However, for this trip we felt like we needed expert advice and help. We worked with Surtrek because the company was highly recommended by friends who had used it when they planned their Galapagos trip. The high recommendation was deserved!"

This is by far the best trip I've ever had, and I've been to a lot of places!! The view in South America is without doubt breathtaking, the service that everyone offers us is also absolutely amazing. I've always wanted a honeymoon, I just never thought with Surtrek, I get to have a perfect one! From the arrangement of pick-up at airports to the setting of hotels, every details have been thoughtfully straightened-out. I thought back to the time months ago, when I was writing emails and talking to you over the phone, discussing the plans for this trip, I'm so grateful that you've been the greatest help ever from the beginning to the end. Now that I'm back home, I just wanna say a million thanks for everything you've done.

Thanks a lot for your thoughtful arrangements. Our customers are very satisfied with this trip and were deeply touched by the gifts that you prepared. Through our talk with the tour leader, we learned that your company’s service of vehicles, drivers, guides, translators are based on very high standards. SURTREK is exactly the right supplier what we are looking for in Ecuador.





Our trip was WONDERFUL!!!! Your team was amazing and made everything so smooth and worry free. I will definitely put a review on Trip Adviser. Thank you so much for all of your assistance. We only wish you were available for other continents.
