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.

Layna George give me outstanding service from start to finish. I've NEVER experienced such personal yet professional, generous, expert service from any kind of provider - be it travel or otherwise. If you have a choice, choose Layna. She's the BEST!

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!

Best travel planning experience by far

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!

Our experience with the planning process has been excellent - from offering great suggestions, customizing an itinerary for us, and answering our numerous questions promptly and cheerfully, we just couldn't be more pleased with Layna and Detour!!

Layna with Detour travel is truly awesome and expert in arranging our tour in Ecuador. Very accommodating to our needs and wants. Detour Travel is also mentioned in Lonely Planet travel guide. I would be very happy to have Layna again in any upcoming travels!

We had never taken a tour before and knew this trip would probably be our only one to the Galapagos, so we had many questions. Layna patiently answered many questions, both by phone and by email. Her answers led to our booking of the trip through this company. The trip was everything we could have wanted, with many chances to see the animals on our list, comfortable accommodations (all but one on the ocean front!), and heaping plates of delicious food, and comfortable transportation, The guides were friendly, efficient, patient, caring, and very knowledgeable! We really liked knowing that our trip was supporting the local people!

Our travel advisor, Layna, was amazing. She guided my wife and I every step of the way and was always just a phone call away when we needed her. Thank you detour travel!

Layna was awesome to work with! We changed our mind many times before finalizing where we wanted to go. She very patiently worked with us and minimized stress through the booking process. Referrral to their partner agency for air transportation ensured the flights fit perfectly with our itinerary.
