Exceptional experience and amazing service by Responsible Travel

Responsible Travel is exceptional as they helped us have a very memorable Ecuador trip for our family. We worked with a Responsible Travel Agent, and she was amazing. Our Agent was in constant communication with us going out of her way and helping us at every step during the whole trip. Whole trip was arranged without any flaws. Some of the things they arranged for us were: 1) Pick up and drop off from airport 2) Booking the 4 days Amazon tour with amazing sacha lodge 3) Local Quito tours with tour guide 4) PCR test at the hotel for travel back to USA. 5) Everything was customized to our needs and timings I am amazed at the service I received. Our Agent answered my questions 24/7 and helped us at every step of the way. I highly recommend Responsible Travel for all your future travel needs.

Our Travel Agent at Responsible Travel in Quito Ecuador did a terrific job making arrangements for our recent trip to Quito and the Napo Wildlife Center in the Amazon. He was very friendly, efficient, and responsive and did a very good job making adjustments to our travel plans and reservations when necessary due to COVID restrictions and airline schedule changes. He even helped quickly resolve several significant problems a friend of ours encountered in dealing with a different travel agency who we were meeting later on our trip to Ecuador even though none of the problems were of his making nor were they his responsibility to resolve. We and our friends had a terrific trip to Ecuador and highly recommend Responsible Travel.

Above and beyond -- an amazing experience in Ecuador, in the face of many challenges · Ecuador

Our trip to Ecuador was amazing! Responsible Travel in Ecuador was just incredible to work with. We faced serious challenges in our trip when a general strike was called throughout Ecuador by CONAIE, an association of indigenious people. This involved roadblocks and protests throughout the country. Our travel advisor, and the guide she hired, Dario, did an absolutely incredible job of working around these conditions to ensure a wonderful experience, even though this meant rearranging our itinerary and schedule completely. When our Ecuadorian Ballet Folklorico performance was cancelled, she arranged a private performance in a beautiful hotel. When the city of Banos was blocked off, our Travel Advisor and Dario suggested Mindo insteady - a gorgeous nature destination with hummingbirds, ziplines and river rafting. It was a hit and we were safe and well cared for throughout the trip. In my last day relaxing in the thermal baths at Papallacta, I couldn't recommend RT enough to the travelers around me. Thank you!

Responsible Travel is really a 5 stars travel agent. In spite of having been contacted only seven days before our arrival in Quito from Italy, they were able to organise for us a terrific cruise in the Galapagos (Yate Bonita) and a wonderful one-day excursion to the Cotopaxi. Travel representative was amazing. She went out of her way to design our itinerary so that our days in Ecuador remain unforgettable. And she also gave us precious tips for our spare time in Quito. I cannot find the words to say how happy we have been with her assistance.
