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 went on their adventure loop on the mainland with Diego and spent 5 nights in the Galapagos island hopping. First of all Diego was fantastic- he went above and beyond to ensure we had fun- including getting me through a panic attack in... More

As one of our main highlights for our 3 1/2 weeks Ecuador travel we wanted to go for a Galapagos cruise and found Barefoot Expeditions through tripadvisor as a well recommended agency with great personal service. The agency, located in Quito, is owned by Diego and Kerstin and their web page gives a good taste of their service. As (always)... 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

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.
