I too cannot find where to post reviews of travel companies so this seemed the best spot.
We recently returned from two weeks in Equador with all travel (not flights) arranged by Adventure Life. We spent one week in Quito and the Highlands and then one week on board the Voyager in the Galapagos. Kudos to Adventure LIfe. I started planning this trip a little late and sent inquiries to about 7 different tour companies. Kassandra (and then Laura when Kassandra went on vacation) were incredibly helpful in helping me think through what we really wanted to do for the two weeks (me, my wife and 18 year old son). It turned out to be the perfect blend of city touring, outdoor activity (hiking on Cotopaxi, zip-lining and horse-back riding) and then touring the islands on the small boat (room for 16 but only 14 of us on board). The guides they use in Quito and the Highlands were fantastic, especially Andres who spent three days with us in the National Park. He was incredibly knowledgable of the history, geography, geology, culture etc. etc. and a delight to spend time with. Our hotel in Quito (Casa Aliso) was delightful. Felt like we were in someone's house as there were only 10 rooms. And the Hacienda Santa Ana near the park was amazing. Just 6 rooms with no phone, internet, etc. Just blissful peace and fantastic food. And it was always just the three of us on the tours!
Transfers to the airport went smoothly (flights were arranged by Adventure Life's partner company) and we spent 7 days on board the Voyager. Not the greatest boat in the fleet I am willing to bet, but very comfortable but with only average food. The guide on board (over which AV has no control as they are assigned by the government) was great. My two issues with this leg of the trip are: 1) we did not have a 7 day cruise but actually a 4-day and a 3-day as we stopped in Baltra port for 5 hours as we dropped off one set of passengers and waited for the next. Pretty much a wasted day. and 2) the other group traveling for the first half were Chilean so the guide had to work bi-lingually. Not a huge issue but it was clear we missed out on much of the narrative. We had assumed it would be an all English trip. For- knowledge would have been appreciated. (And shame on us for being mono-lingual.)
I woud most certainly use Adventure LIfe again to plan a trip. A great group who followed up with a 1-1 phone call to get feed back. Much preferable to filling out some survey.
