Detour has offered excellent support in planning our trip, combining the Galapagos with Machu Picchu, with in-depth knowledge of Ecuador and Peru, and great suggestions for what to see and do, and the best alternatives to make everything work. Layna George, our travel advisor, has been outstanding and very professional -- she has always responded quickly with answers to questions or requests --she is great with follow-up. Detour allows a lot of flexibility in tailoring the trip to some of our special interests. The overall value included for price paid is at the top of providers.

This trip was wonderful. Layna was very thoughtful and direct. She answered and re-answered questions and provided every bit of information you could want. She really made this trip possible and helped us find a wonderful yacht for a Galapagos trip. I would definitely recommend detour and potentially use them again.

Communication with Layna was always clear and she replied promptly. She was always friendly and informative. If I asked for extra advise she was happy to share her knowledge and experience. The booking and paying system was easy. I give Layna and the company a 5 star rating!

Layna at Detour was very helpful from our first contact with her to the issuance of final travel instructions. She was very knowledgeable and answered all our questions in a timely manner. The travel info that Detour provided was very detailed and comprehensive. They informed us of potential safety issues regarding the political situation in Ecuador well before our departure date. When we decided to revise our itinerary, Detour was very accommodating. They made special arrangements to ensure that we received our Migration Control cards at the airport in a different city. Sign up and payment were easy. First rate service to date. Would definitely recommend Detour to anyone traveling to the Galapagos.

Detour put together an amazing trip based on my interests and preferences. I was so impressed by the local guides they scheduled me with, and I never had to worry as each piece of my trip fell into place as planned—my reservations were all in line, the tours were all on time, etc. They provided me with excellent customer service and put together the trip of a lifetime!

So far everything has progressed well, Layna put an attractive package together that suited my timetable and organised an agency to book all my airfares to suit (10 flights in total!) Nothing was too much trouble!
