Holiday review by Gill Steinberg

Date of trip: 17/04/2011
Number of people: 2
Country: Ecuador

Overall level of Satisfaction

Tribes Overall: "All arrangements worked very well. So reassuring to see my name on a notice when we arrived at Quito airport! We always felt taken care of."
Tribes Service: "Very impressed with advice I received before booking to ensure I went at the right time to see Waved Albatross."
Guides: "Alfredo met us and took us down thru Ecuador to Guayaquil. Knowledgeable, good company, sympathetic, very good English. We were well looked after.Hiking in the Cotapaxi and Cajus national parks was brilliant."
Social & Environmental Responsibility: "We were steered towards a market which helped local women. In the Galapagos I feel the tax we paid will have helped preserve the environment."


Hacienda Hato Verde
Accommodation and hospitality were excellent. The only path is also used by the cattle, and as it had been raining a lot it was extremely muddy! A selection of boots to borrow would have been very much appreciated.
Hacienda Manteles
This was a most beautiful spot, and they coped well with a dysfunctional generator just before dinner! Walking in the cloud forest close to the hacienda was very special.
Patio Andaluz
A very pleasant place to stay. Staff all very pleasant, and having seen a bit of the very busy new town we were glad we were in the old town.
Santa Lucia Hotel
This was lovely -especially as we'd stayed at the Hosteria Andaluz in Riobamba the night before!
Mary Anne
Such a lovely vessel -the prettiest one we saw! The atmosphere on board was very relaxed, staff all very pleasant and helpful. Food occasionally a bit disappointing, but absolutely delicious at other times.
