“CarpeDM Adventures in Quito”
Reviewed March 5, 2013

We visited Ecuador in January and arranged some of our tours through CarpeDM.
This is one travel tour arranger that really cares about what they do. They provide excellent deals and with a lot of care that goes with the arrangements. They want the tourist to really enjoy the arrangements. My comment for Paul and his team:

"Your arrangements were perfect and concern for the customer was exemplary."

Dear Raman,

It was a pleasure to have the opportunity to cater to both you and Kadum's needs while in Ecuador. While it's not too common to have clients from Canada, it's especially rewarding to have hosted Canadians from the Capital City. We really hope this is a sign that more of our fellow Canadians will choose Ecuador as a potential getaway destination for their holidays. Really appreciate you taking the time to share your kind words about your experience with us and happy you left Ecuador with some nice memories :) Best Regards, The CarpeDM Crew

“Quilatoa day trip”
Reviewed March 2, 2013 via mobile

Our trip to Quilatoa was awesome. I like that Carpe DM have a system in place where proceeds go to local families in exchange for allowing us to visit them and learn about their way of life.

Quilatoa lake is beautiful.

“The best tour / travel agency we have ever experienced”
Reviewed February 27, 2013 via mobile

Paul and his team are truely amazing and are the people to talk to if you are going to spend time in Equador.

We simply stumbled across them as they have an office in the hostel we stayed at. The girl who handled our inquiries was very helpful and helped us make the best decisions. We asked loads of questions and she never lost her smile or patience.

We ended up booking a trip to the amazon and a week in the galapagos, both offers we felt we couldnt have got better elsewhere and they turned out to be incredible.

on top of this Paul helped us get money, dropped us off at the bus depo late at night, made sure we were safe and then when we were back from the jungle he picked us up at 5am and took us to the airport!!!!! We didnt ask for this!

Paul even lent me his torch for the 5 day jungle trip.

No matter what you do in Equador these guys will be able to assist you, whether with friendly advice or to help you book a trip of a lifetime.

Thanks guys and keep up the amazing work :).

Dear James,

Thanks for your kind words and sharing your feedback. Great to hear all went well for you and Nicole in the Amazon and that the headlamp came in handy. We're happy that Consuelo & Paul were able to assist you and provide on-going support to make your trip in Ecuador a great one :) On a side note, thank-you for your advice with GOPRO and especially the mini-tripod - definitely come in handy ! best regards,

“Awesome service!”
Reviewed February 26, 2013

Booked our Galapagos 5 Day yacht trip through CarpeDM from Australia and the service provided by Paul in booking and organising our trip far exceeded what we expected to receive. The trip itself was amazing too! Paul also was able to organise a last minute day trip from quito for us for a very reasonable price. The prices for all the tours offered were great, but it was the service by Paul in particular that made the difference. He even dropped us out to the new airport in Quito at 5am for our flight. The galapagos trip was one of the best things we have ever done and we hope to book another trip through CarpeDM again soon!

Dear Scott,

Thanks for sharing your feedback with us. We're happy that you and Joanne enjoyed your time at the Equator and Galapagos. It was nice to finally to a put face to the emails we had been exchanging and a pleasure to be one of the first clients to provide a transfer to the new airport. It's a wonderful start to new chapter for CarpeDM Adventures!
