About us

GalapagosTravelPlanner.com is published by Yacu Amu Experiences, a Quito-based tour operator specialising in adventure, nature and cultural tourism for active travellers.

Our mission is to transform our clients into raving fans of Ecuador and her people. Something we manage to do almost every time.

Over the years we have served thousands of customers and almost all of them tell us they would recommend our services to other travellers.

Now in our 19th year of operations, mostly as a supplier to foreign tour operators and wholesalers, we decided to make it easy for independent travellers and the savviest of travel agents to plan and book custom, private travel directly with us.

And so it was that GalapagosTravelPlanner.com was launched.

If you too would like to enjoy the benefits of dealing direct, the first step is to request a Trip Plan.

We are a team of dedicated professionals, ready to do everything we can to make your trip fabulous.

Steve Nomchong

Chief Experience Officer

Steve is an expert on travel in Ecuador where he lived for a decade after founding Yacu Amu Experiences in 1996. He now divides his time between Ecuador and his native Australia.

"I recommend you try a viche de camaron at La Canoa Manabita when in Quito. It’s a hole in the wall with terrible service that is more than made up for by the simple, flavoursome food from the coastal province of Manabi."
