Eva with Enjoying Ecuador Travels put together a great 14 day birding trip for us in Ecuador. She first worked with our group leader extensively to customize the trip, in terms of the route, the number of nights in each place, what we were looking to see, and especially with certain dietary restrictions (vegetarian food, including some who do not eat eggs). Very prompt and clear in her communication.

We had a van large enough to accommodate all 8 plus luggage, with room to spare. Bolivar was a good, careful driver, assessing whether it was safe to move forward in some situations.

Our birding guide Manuel, was very knowledgeable. He was very quick to hear and accurately identify bird calls, and with a little calling of his own, brought them closer and quickly spotted them for us. He was also very patient with this large group of 8.

The lodges we stayed at were clean and safe, with friendly staff and good service. The food service was especially good, considering the dietary restrictions and the remoteness of the lodges. We did not even have to lock the doors when we went out.

On such a long trip, there are bound to be some glitches, and these were handled very well. First off, our flights into Ecuador were delayed by almost 5 hours, so we reached there at 1 am - and were met by a very sprightly Manuel and Bolivar.
It rained every afternoon, so the itinerary was adjusted to make our outings start very early in the morning, after an early breakfast.
One day, our van overheated as we were driving to the next lodge. Eva quickly got us the first available replacement van (large), and then switched us to a van similar to the original one in a couple of days.

All in all, we all had a lovely trip; we got to see most of the birds (so colorful) we had set out to see, including this family of Torrent ducks who put up quite a show on our last day there. And then, to top it all, a Boa Constrictor at Sani Lodge.
My favorite part was the gentle paddle canoe ride on the Napo River, and watching all the different birds and mammals eating the fruit of the very giving Cecropia tree present at every altitude.

Enjoyed Ecuador! Will definitely contact Eva for other South American trips

We were a group of 8 doing a birding trip of Ecuador, going from the highlands to the cloud forests to the amazon rain forests, staying in 7 different lodges. The arrangements in every one of those lodges was impeccably done. The birding guide that was arranged was knowledgeable, amiable and took great care to make sure that the entire group, with varying levels of interest and experience in birding, got the opportunity to see the birds. The van was very comfortable and the driver was very responsible.

As an experienced traveler i booked Bartolome
and North seymour islands tour with this agency and all i got were amazing. They charge cheaper than other agencies(they don’t get service charge) but they offered a real luxury and clean yacht with real attentive staff. free snorkeling equipments, tour plan, food, drinks and other services were perfect. Even the chief cooked a great Quinoa burger with rice for my friend and i since we are vegan.
Eva, the Manager, is a real attentive one, she cares about every single points of the tour and your inquiries, she is always ready and available to help any time you are asking for. I highly recommend this agency

Enjoying Ecuador Travel arranged our summit of the volcano Chimborazo. Eva was very helpful in explaining everything we needed to bring and everything we needed to do to prepare for this excursion. We were set up with the climbing group which checked all of our equipment and rented us anything else that we needed . Our guide Hugo was very knowledgeable and made us feel safe on our summit. We were well taken care of and reached the top of Chimborazo successful . Would highly recommend this company for any mountaineering excursions you may be considering in Ecuador.

We had several tours in Galapagos, some of them were not really up to standards. Two days with particularly this agent was highlight of our trip: good quality tours, well organised, excellent guides, luxurious boats and good lunch (for the same money). That makes me think this tour agent really carefully selecting what they offer, they understand expectations of customers and cares about their own reputation. Eva is extremely supportive easy communicative person, always ready for extra mile. Very highly Recommended.

We recently completed a 12 day birding trip with Eva, spanning seven locations in the Western Andes, Eastern Andes and the Amazon. The trip was memorable (and painless) thanks to excellent logistics provided by Eva, expert bird guiding by Manuel and skilled driving by Bolivar. We got a chance to enjoy the amazing diversity of birds, travel across this beautiful country, interact with great folks at the lodges including the Sani people at Sani lodge, and enjoy local, vegetarian food. Thank you for a lovely experience!

Eva was beyond amazing in helping us plan a last minute trip to Ecuador! She was incredibly responsive and had wonderful suggestions to offer when setting up our trip. Upon arrival, it was evident she truly cared that we enjoyed our trip. Local treats and a personalized book / itinerary were waiting for us from her at our hotel. Our arrival was very late at night, yet Eva was still available to ensure we arrived safely and connected with our driver.

Because of Eva's help, we were able to enjoy the equator (a must do while visiting the middle of the Earth!), ride the teleferico with amazing views, zipline through cloud forest, enjoy the best local chocolates, hike Cotopaxi - one of the highest, active volcanos in the world, and so much more!

We absolutely enjoyed our time in Quito and would definitely recommend to anyone looking to travel. We felt very safe and all of the people we encountered were extremely friendly. As this was a last minute, short (long weekend) trip, we are already trying to plan another (longer!) trip back to Ecuador. We will definitely go through Eva with Enjoying Ecuador Travel!!

I would highly recommend using Enjoying Ecuador for any adventures in Ecuador or the Galapagos!

Our family of four had a two week, once in a lifetime trip! We explored Quito, the cloud forest and the Galápagos Islands. It was one of the most stress-free vacations we have ever had, in large part due to the organization of Eva. She had everything planned for us down to the smallest details. She ensured we had transportation, amazing guides in both Quito and the Galapagos, recommendations for where to eat and ideas of what to do with any downtime. We never had to worry about how to get somewhere or finding a ride.

There was continuous communication from the moment we inquired about booking a trip until we arrived back home. Eva was always available to answer questions and kept in touch with us throughout our entire trip.

Highly recommend!

Eva was helping us organizing four day trips from our hotel in San Cristobal. This was very helpful. Everything was on time and high quality. The guides were great. Working with Eva saved us from running around during our stay to organize something. Can only recommend reserving day trips before you arrive. Eva would address our questions and concerns timely. She made our stay that much more of an experience. We corresponded thru email very efficiently. Thank you Eva!

From the beginning, Eva provided outstanding support in our planning process. We were able to arrive in Quito, see the cloud forest & hummingbird sanctuary, zipline through the trees all before transferring to Galapagos for a few days of tortoises, seals, and snorkeling.

Eva and her team ensured that each step was seamless, and provided answers upfront to "possible" challenges (ie. Step-by-step to get the Galapagos park ticket/agriculture screening all before actually checking in for the flight).

All drivers were highly knowledgeable and able to help us get the absolute most out of each day. The team even arranged a driver to show us a little more of Quito on our last day, so that we were not sitting in the airport for 9 hours. Absolutely would work with Eva and the team again and we are looking forward to our next trip.
