I’m already in contact with Nature Experience Ecuador since 2019. Due to corona, we had to change plans several times, but the flexibility and communication of Nature Experience was fantastic. In November 2021, I went a first time to Galapagos with a friend. The landbased trip was amazing, well organized, full of wildlife and fantastic experiences. It was so unbelievable that I decided to go again, this time with 10 other people and off course I wanted Nature Experience to organize it again. As a group leader, I was in constant contact with Nature Experience and everything went fluently. In November 2022, our group of 11 people went on a cruise around the Galapagos on the Monserrat yacht, and this trip was even better than the first time. The boat and crew were professional, the landings and snorkling were of a very high level, and we managed to take a lot of beautiful photos. We have swom with sharks, rays, dolphins, penguins and seaturtles, experiences that we w...

Hi Xavier, It was an amazing trip! Seeing a lot of animals, rivers, waterfalls. Next to see this it was nice for a change that we had to use hands and feet to make clear what we wanted. We dont speak Spanish and they dont speak English. That was fun. Thank you and maybe we’ll see each other. Casper Douma – Photography tourCaño Cristal, Colombia

A small detail of the species observed on the whole trip (Ecuador + Galapagos): 234 species of birds (including 85 cochas). 12 species of mammals (5 marine, 7 terrestrial). 11 reptiles and amphibians. X fishes (a lot of work is needed to identify them with the Go Pro images). As far as endemic birds are concerned, we saw all those possible on the islands visited, except for the Rail and 2 finches (sharp-billed and vegetarian), as well as many seabirds (3 storm-petrels, Galapagos petrels, all the gulls, boobies, frigate birds, etc). Also 6 very well seen orcas, 1 Bryde's whale, a group of very confident bottlenose dolphins, etc. It is very difficult for me to say which part of the trip is my favourite.... For the whole family it was the Galapagos. Maybe for me too, because of the great exceptionality of a unique place, but the rest was also very very beautiful. A great trip !!!! Many thanks to Xavier and...

Organization: excellent. We had proposed sites of interest to you, you connected them perfectly. We trusted you completely for the postponement in 2021 of the trip planned for 2020, and we were not disappointed. We appreciated your professionalism, your responsiveness, your follow-up of our trip. Drivers: the first one, ok. But Fernando is not only a careful, punctual, attentive, cultured driver. He speaks French well and taught us a lot of things in all fields. And reactive to the problems of paro. Really to be recommended! Guides : very good. We appreciated a lot their knowledge and their passion for nature : Luis in Siona Lodge, Natalia in Mindo, Darwin Alvarez on the Nemo III. Only the guide in Cotopaxi was less willing (except for the climb to the refuge). Hotels: good choice in the city center for the walking tours of Quito, Otavalo, Cuenca and Guayaquil. Swimming pools appreciated in Lago Agrio and Guayaquil. The lodges were very good: Siona, Roulotte, Cotopaxi all w...

It is with great pleasure that I have the opportunity to shoot a wildlife documentary with Xavier and Pierre, from Nature Experience, in the Ecuadorian Amazon and the Andes. Understanding perfectly my specific expectations and knowing very well the country and its possibilities, they knew how to direct me towards the best spots and the best contacts. Then, in the field, they did everything possible to facilitate the shooting: negotiation with the local authorities, hiring of trackers, loan of equipment in case of need, technical advice, information on the fauna and flora, etc. In short, I felt "supported", during the whole shooting, which is precious when you are on sometimes difficult grounds and you don't speak Spanish! They never made m...

What did you retain from your trip to Ecuador? A strong emotion: the encounter with the manta ray during the last dive! We will remember the welcome and the smile of the Ecuadorians despite our stammering Spanish. Varied landscapes with a different atmosphere after a few hours of transportation.   Do you have any other general observations to make about your trip? Pierre's attention was very much appreciated before the trip (to answer our wishes) and during the trip (to make sure it went well).

Hello Sofia. Here is the return of the questionnaire. I would like to take this opportunity to thank you very warmly for the work you did, the quality of the organization and the human qualities and your kindness. We really enjoyed the trip and you are there for a lot. I measure the time and energy you spent to manage our difficulties! Thank you very much for that and your almost permanent availability.  A great professionalism! Please also pass on our thanks to Carlos for his kindness and professionalism. He was always very kind, attentive to our requests, adorable with our children (Avril adored him). A lot of culture and interest to travel with him and great qualities to manage our "troubles". A big thank you to him... I wish you an excellent continuation and that your agency can find a beautiful activity, because it deserves it. Do not hesitate (Carlos like you) to come and see us if by chance you come to France. Sincerely, Benoit and all the DUPERTHUY family

Took a tailor made trip inspired on : To the Ecuadorian Chocó . His opinion is:

"Juan did an excellent job. Also it was useful to have local guides with us at some locations.The whole trip was overall well prepared and we saw more birds than we expected to see. Juan also concentrated on target birds which was good. The handling of the trip by Dana was very professional."   Julia and Christoph Moning on a trip in Ecuador in August 2019
