Our five-day cruise in the Galapagos Islands was a dream come true. I'm so appreciative of the help of Maria Vallejo in planning and arranging it for my adult daughter and myself, at the culmination of my 18 months of volunteer work in Guayaquil. It was perfect in every aspect, and, although rather expensive for us, was a wonderful value... More

Galapagos had always been in my list of places to go. I tried to book a trip last summer but was unsuccessful, probably because the tours were booked up or the fact that I was traveling alone. This year I looked in the internet and found out about land tours of Galapagos which would include sites in Ecuador. I asked... More

This was our first time in Ecuador and after searching online for hours we decided on Pajonal Tours. They were responsive and easy to work with. They connected us with Ivan who was our driver/tour guide for 8 days. He was eager to please, always on time and great company. He is relatively new as a guide and sometimes needed... More

I located this company by viewing reviews posted by other travelers who had used their services. Impressed at the many positive reviews, we decided to book 4 or 5 days of tours during our trip to Quito. Maria was quite helpful as all our arrangements were done by email. she worked with us until we had what we thought would... More

We sent Pajonal Tours our 5 week itinerary and requested their time and efforts throughout our trip to Ecuador, namely Quito, Cuenca, Otavalo, Vilcabamba, Cotacachi and Baños. We were given alternative suggestions, options galore and super expedient service. Many of our requests were not part of their packages and were custom choices - none of the requests were refused and... More

Our guide was Angel, who was knowledgeable and gave great commentary. We booked him through Pajonal Tours for two half days (City tour and middle of the world) and full day (Otavalo). He was patient, and the tours were great. Not having to share the guide (i.e. having a private tour) was not that much more expensive, and well worth... More

We had a couple of days in lovely Quito area after time in the Galapagos Islands. We booked a one-day tour with Pajonal Tours to see some of the surrounding countryside and the Otavalo market town. Our guide Ximena picked us up on time at our hotel near Plaza Foch, and we spent the entire day sightseeing north of the... More

We had 4 days in Quito after traveling to the Galapagos. Maria was was very helpful and patient with me right from the beginning as we kept changing our plans pretty much up to the last minute. I was traveling with my 90 year old parents and we spoke little to no Spanish. Our first 2 tours were with Guillermo... More

I plan a trip for my mother once per year. This one was by far one of the easiest to plan due to the help of Maria from Pajonal Tours. She gave me a lot of prompt advice via E-mail and created the exact tour I wanted for my mother. She even went to the hotel I had chosen for... More
