Exploring Atacama
The desert is a place of surreal landscapes. Here, you can trek through narrow canyons, cross capacious ravines and discover fields of flowers that bloom only every few years. Beginning at dawn, we wait for the sun to rise, revealing its striking colors that gradually melt into the landscape. Later, you can plunge into crystalline altiplano lakes. After...

"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 detail has 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."

Wonderful first class trip. Excellent suggestions for a two week trip in Ecuador and an additional week in Peru. Trip was very well organized. We had very good guides and everyone was very punctual. We were escorted to and through every airport. Chose excellent restaurants. We were very happy with the selection of our cruise. We had a great itinerary and a wonderful guide. It was an active cruise. Food was excellent on board and the crew was very helpful. Very well organized as well.Having said the above, I offer you the following feedback for your consideration as you plan additional trips.

Day 1- On our own visit to Quito was very good. Carlos was very helpful. We had a slight miscommunication about lunch but it worked out well.

Day 2- Day at the Papallacta spa was good. However, I think a full day there was too long. Basically, an hour in the water would have sufficed. Facilities were good and lunch was good. It was good that we had massages scheduled because otherwise there would not have been anything to do after an hour in the sprints.

Days 3-7- Galapagos portion was amazing. The crew was outstanding. They could not have been more accommodating. Accommodations and food were great. We would highly recommend this boat. We saw everything on the islands. (I wish we had taken your advice to bring earplugs. The boat was noisy when traveling at night). Seasick medication was also a good idea.

Day 8-Trip to Otavalo and stay at Cuisin. This was a very nice day. The lunch at Mirador was spectacular. My only suggestion would be to give more information about the day's activities. We made several interesting stops. However, we had no idea what to expect and really thought we would be at the hotel much earlier.

Day 9-Cotapaxi-Very nice day. We enjoyed the horseback riding in the highlands. Unfortunately, Margaret hurt her knee. Accommodations were just OK but we understand we were staying in a mountain lodge.

We had a fabulous time and really enjoyed the trip. Everything went really smoothly. Our Quito guide Carlos was knowledgeable and always willing to be flexible to accommodate our needs. We really appreciated his going the extra mile to take us to the famous Pecari shop despite the ongoing demonstrations in the area. Finally, the personal touch from Gabriella from the Quito office coming to see us with gifts really touched us. 

We love the service you provide and continue to recommend you to our friends. Next time, Chile/Argentina! 

Thanks once again for everything.
