Q:

We are thinking about the trip that departs Miami on April 4th. I would like to know what the weather is at that time of year? Also, we would like to know if this trip is all on the coast or would any of it be in the mountains?

Q:

I noticed the groupon price and actual price is the same. Is there any discount booking through groupon on this trip? I traveled to So. Africa and Australia last year on groupon and both trips were nicely discounted, not to mention both trips were wonderful.

Linda O.  asked on  Feb 3, 2013

A:

The prices shown on Groupon are the discounted rates. If you've had a chance to view the Exotic Ecuador tour on our website, you'll notice our regularly scheduled departures are $1399 per person based on double occupancy. With the exception of two dates, that is $100 per person savings.

Q:

The list price is the regular price? ...no savings unlike your other packages. Is that correct?

Q:

Hello, This question might have been asked before, but can we change the dates on this trip?? For example i booked my trip for May 21st can i change it to the june or july trip?? Sowmya

sowmya p.  asked on  Feb 4, 2013

A:

If there is availability on the date you want to change to, there is a $150 per person change fee that applies, any difference in tour cost and if there is any penalty with the airline that penalty would be assessed as well. You would need to send your change request in writing in order to get the process started.

Q:

I would like to extend my trip so I can go to Galapagos and others part of the ecuador. Can my flight back to lax be pushed out to another date?

Gina K.  asked on  Feb 3, 2013

A:

If you wish to extend your stay, we will gladly arrange a late return. The cost is $100 per person plus any difference in airfare. When you make your reservation let us know the date you wish to come back, and our air department will check the availability and let you know what the additional cost will be. Be sure to let us know if we can help with additional hotel or touring arrangements during your extended stay.

Q:

1. I plan to travel with a friend. Do we need to order the 2 groupons on one account, or can she buy using her card from her account and I can buy separately from my account? 2. We also would be paying the added fee to fly from other destinations. i would be flying from IAD and she would be flying from NY. Would that be something we schedule with friendly planet and pay the added fee after we buy the groupon?

Michelle E.  asked on  Feb 3, 2013

A:

You can each purchase your own Groupon or one person can purchase both, either way is not a problem. When you make your reservation you will indicate the city you need to fly from. Our air department will check the availability and let you know what the additional cost will be and you will pay that separately.

You can fly from most U.S. cities, although the tour price will vary. When you make your reservation with us, just let us know your most convenient departure city. We'll check what's available and let you know the cost.
