Alan and I had a truly wonderful experience in Ecuador. Santiago and the rest of staff were excellent hosts, as was the La Pinta and its staff. We had an amazing trip.
THANK YOU FOR EVERYTHING!! The trip was outstanding; all the arrangements were perfect – from the time we were met at the airport in Quito – to the time we were returned to the airport in Guayaquil.
Hannah, we are back from our fabulous vacation, and I am so very thankful to you for setting it all up. Please provide me with your supervisor's name and email address so I can give you proper credit! Dilger couple, Custom Galapagos Land Based, March 2012

Very well trained soldiers

Puerto Ayora is located on Academy Bay, the anchoring place for medium and small sized boats that reach this port located on Santa Cruz Island, part of the Galapagos National Park.

My husband and I had decided that we didn’t want to risk our children getting sea-sick, so we rented a villa and spent our vacation on a land based tour.

After an early morning visit to the Charles Darwin Station we were walking through the main street which faces the bay and were all delighted by a really funny scene, the interaction of fishermen who were cleaning their day’s catch and the brown pelicans, who behaved just like little soldiers, very attentive to the fishermen’s every move, if he moved his hand to the left they moved their head to the left, if he raised his hand they all looked up at the same time, and so on.

After a few minutes my little children were also synchronized with the pelican’s movements, look up, look to the left, look to the right… it was one of the best experiences of the day… they actually got to play with pelicans… and they are big!! Some time has passed bye and from time to time they still play the “pelican soldiers”.
