"You will be in excellent hands ... with Andean Treks"

Christine Kotynski, Cormorant catamaran Galapagos cruise for honeymoon

We had the pleasure of working with Debbie and Reuben from Andean Treks to plan our honeymoon. I found Andean Treks through various online searches (maybe a Frommer’s article?), and felt at ease knowing I was working with a US company. Debbie arranged the Galapagos Island portion of our honeymoon (which ended up being my favorite part). She was very patient with me, as my husband and I went back and forth many times deciding what we wanted to do/what dates/etc. She was always quick to respond to emails, and always kept me updated of how the process was going. She found us a last minute deal on the Cormorant Yacht, which turned out to be the best boat on the water (I seriously recommend this boat – the ultimate in luxury, as far as luxury at the Galapagos Islands goes)! I ended up waiting til almost the last minute to give Debbie our preferred dates, but she was still able to have everything booked, organized and paid for in less than a week or two – truly an incredible feat! Debbie arranged our flights to and from the Galapagos from Quito, and arranged to have a representative meet us at the airport for the most seamless boarding process ever (it almost worried me how smooth it went!). All our tickets and paperwork to gain entry to the islands were printed and handed to us upon meeting our representative. Our representative was on time, very friendly, and incredibly knowledgeable. I worked with Reuben to plan the Machu Picchu portion of our honeymoom, which we tacked on to the week after the Galapagos portion. He was just like Debbie, but in male form! Incredibly helpful, patient and so quick to respond to emails. He helped put together a custom Peru package for us, since we were unable to do the Inca trail hikes (I was 4 months pregnant and didn’t think it was a great idea). He made it possible for us to still experience Machu Picchu, arranging an incredibly sweet personal tour guide for us. This guide later ended up helping us change a portion of our travel since my husband fell ill (some type of stomach bug, as to be expected!). The hotels Reuben picked for us were great – very reasonably priced, in great locations, and with breakfast included. Again, Reuben worked so quickly to make this all come together. We were very impressed with the quick turnaround! Both Debbie and Reuben were very accommodating to me, since I wanted to plan some in-between portions of the trip on my own. They did not push me into having them book things and even offered great tips to help me out. I couldn’t have been happier allowing Andean Treks to plan our Galapagos and Machu Picchu honeymoon excursions. You will be in excellent hands if you go with Andean Treks and I don’t hesitate at all to recommend them to anyone looking for US based travel coordinators. My husband and I are incredibly grateful for the wonderful trip, and truly owe it to Andean Treks for making it possible. Thanks. Chrissy
