which company to travel with from US

A few couples are planning a trip to the Galapagos/Peru/Equador--want input on American companies that provide a good deal. Have looked at OAT but need input on other companies for comparison.

We had a fantastic trip last year, going to Peru/Ecuador/Galapagos with Vantage Travel. They are a bit upscale from some of the other tour companies (nicer hotels, etc.), but we found the trip (our second with Vantage) to be an excellent value. The Galapagos cruise portion was aboard the luxury explorer ship, Galapagos Legend. The excursions, guides and included extras were wonderful, as were their handling of all the trip details. You can check out the itineary, etc. on their website: vantagetravel.com

Hello

I would highly recommend Southern Explorations - out of Seattle. We have done two trips to South America with them. Recently, a 20 day trip to Chile and Argentina and last year a 17 day trip to Peru. Both trips were executed flawlessly - they are very focused on the needs and interests of the customer. Their policy is to only book a customer into a facility/boat where they have personally stayed. We will use them again when we go to the Galapagos.

We just booked a trip to Peru for August through South American Vacations. I have been very impressed with them so far. They are very responsive and Martha always answers the phone if I call. They offer trips for all budgets. They are based in Florida but also have an office in Lima.

Try Kuoda tours. We are two couples traveling to Peru in July. We just booked our 2 week trip with private guides, Amazon cruise and domestic airfare with them and they have done everything! They have offices in Peru in case you run into any problems there. Their prices are very competitive and they have an excellent reputation on these boards.
