Enjoyed the trip to the equator while in Quito. Loved Alausi, very interesting place, people. Cuenca was lovely, very easy to get around, felt safe, staff at hotel very helpful, happy hour cocktails 2 for 1 delicious! Las Cajas national park very interesting. The Galapagos week was fantastic! Staff really professional, islands and wildlife more than I imagined, learnt to snorkel, scenery fantastic. The group were also really nice, and as a single traveller this made my holiday really special. And on the whole the weather was very sunny and warm. Enjoyed the picnics we had during our trips in the Andes, which the tour leader arranged, especially the exotic fruits which she advised us to try.

This is my third trip with JLA after a gap of 7 years - and they continue to deliver! A great trip and I cannot wait to go back. Excellent local knowledge, sensitive to local customs and cultures; my only complaint is that it went too quickly!

The trip of a lifetime. It was a great privilege to be able to visit somewhere as unique as The Galapagos.

There are two things that we most appreciate about the tours organised by JLA, one is the restricted size of the groups and the other is the quality of the leaders.

I would recommend this trip to anyone who has an interest in magnificent scenery and wonderful wildlife experiences.

A great mixture of the Andes and Galapagos - which covered all the main things I wanted to see. I was worried about sea sickness on the trip - but everything was fine and no-one on the cruise had any problems - just a fantastic visit. I advise anyone interested in wildlife to go - but make sure you do the full 7 days to get the full experience.

Well organised brilliant holiday. It felt like 2 holidays in one as each week was so different from the other.

Hotels - Quirky mix of old and modern, loved the contrast. Seaman Journey Galapagos boat was superb, cabin larger than expected. Crew and guide outstanding.
