Barefoot expeditions did a great job answering our questions and planning our 6 day cruise through the galapagos. Kerstin is one of the best travel agents I've worked with and is very responsive with emails. We had a great time and will recommend to our friends. The boat, food, and itinerary were all very well thought out.

Kerstin from Barefoot handled the trip booking details. We spent 10 days in Ecuador, with the majority of the time hopping between 3 islands in the Galapagos. We also spent a day in Quito... More

Our 30 day trip planned with Kerstin was impeccable. Starting in Quito, Otavalo, Tena, Papallacta, Banos, Cotopaxi, Quito, Coca, Quito and Mindo. Every detail accounted for...a tremendous feat in itself! Everything managed right down to bathroom breaks and when to have water etc. There was complete flexibility with portions planned by Barefoot, interspersed with our own ideas (a visit to... More

It was an immense pleasure to work with Kerstin in planning a 6 day island-hopping extension to the Galapagos. I can highly recommend her insight re the needs of clients and her amazing organizational skills. We did not have the opportunity to share an adventure package with her husband, Diego, but I am quite convinced that it would be every... More

I planned a white water rafting trip as a surprise for my family of 5. From beginning to end, our experience was exceptional. Kerstin was incredibly efficient and responsive, always helpful and pleasant. She was even willing to cater deliciously to my husbands dietary restrictions (Gluten-free). Everything went smoothly. We were picked up at our Quito hotel, as arranged, in... More

Our five day adventure included caving, hot springs, white water rafting, cannoning (abseiling down waterfalls), zip lining (giant flying fox), hiking and a cycle in Ecuador. Everything was well organised and our guide Diego has an excellent command of English and Spanish. He combined with other specialist guides for each of the activities and they were all great.
