We wanted to experience as much as we could cram in to 9 days in Ecuador, and Diego with Barefoot Expeditions helped us accomplish that and more. He picked us up from the airport on the night we arrived, and after a day of exploring Quito on our own, we set out for our adventure tour traveling to Quilotoa, Banos,... More

Kerstin helped arrange a trip to Siona Lounge so I could explore the Amazon during Thanksgiving week. She replied quickly to my e-mails and questions and really made everything a breeze, which took the stress out of going to an unknown part of the world. Highly recommended if you have any hesitations. Go for it!

My wife and I spent 12 days touring Ecuador in July 2015. Kirsten planned our entire trip and everything turned out great. From the moment we walked off our plane until we left 12 days later we felt that we were well taken care of. Diego traveled with us for the first half of our trip and he is awesome.... More

We participated in the two day Andes Adventures tour travelling to Cotopaxi/Quilatoa lake. Kerstin was extremely responsive to our emails and requests for minor modifications. Diego was our tour guide and was highly knowledgeable of the area. Given it was a private tour, he was also happy to modify the locations and activities given how we were feeling (mild altitude...

We rarely go through an agency, but as we knew very little about Quito or Ecuador, we took a friend's suggestion and booked some trips through Kerstin and Diego. Our daughter is traveling through Central and South America, and we were catching up with her for a three week vacation. Given that the three of us had quite different interests,... More
