Reviews from Travellers on this Tour

Amazing trip to the Galapagos, highly recommend!

06-Feb-2024

Our experience was phenomenal. Out trip planner Alvaro made sure every detail was to our liking prior to our departure. He was always very responsive during the planning phase and even set up some surprises for us since we were celebrating a milestone birthday. One at our destination our contact Belén was also very responsive, checking on us, providing us details for upcoming days, and answering all of our questions. Every excursion was top quality and all of our guides - Edwin, Candi, Rita, Zambo, Darwin, Javier, and Julio - were excellent and so friendly. Highly recommend!

Unbelieved Experince in the Galapagos Islands

17-Dec-2023

Our trip to Galagagos, organized by Alvaro was an over the top experience. The animal and bird life was just amazing. From sea lions, marine and land iguanas to hammerhead sharks and sea turtles to a colourful array of fish to the endemic species of birds there was never a dull moment. Some guides, when we had them, were more helpful and knowledgeable than others but that can be expected as they gain experience. Thank you Alvaro for being there (via email) to help us with questions and concerns. I wouldn't hesitate to use the services again if all their agents provide this level of service. Cheers.

Sharell Review´s in the Galapagos Islands

12-Dec-2023

I had a fabulous 4 days on San Cristobal, Santa Cruz Islands and day trip to Santa Fe island. The guides were helpful and knowledgeable. I especially liked the boat ride, snorkel and walk to see the blue footed boobies. The day trip on the Galaxy Daily boat, plus the snorkelling, was terrific. Thank you, John, Edison, Mauricio, and Rita for all you help and guidance!! Sharell from Canada
