Peru and Galapagos adventure holiday
It was truly the holiday of a lifetime with unique experiences that i will treasure. That was helped by a very well organised crew and an inspirational guide who was in love with his islands. (more)Debbie Cowburn
Fantastic -it was everything we expected. Sometimes reality does not meet expectations but not so this time and we are both fairly well travelled. Everything went like clock work. (more)Jennifer Parks
The view of Machu Picchu from the Sun Gate after a gruelling 4-day trek and the tameness of the animals in the Galapagos were the most memorable parts. (more)Glenys France
From £4705 - £7105 excluding flights

Galapagos adventure holiday
We feel we've had many 5-star holidays but this was certainly one of them. (more)Robert Coifman
Very enjoyable....We hiked the Inca trail; catching sight of Machu Picchu through the cloud as we approached was spectacular! (more)Sue Johnson
Snorkelling with the wonderful under-sea creatures - as well as scores of beautiful fishes, I swam with marine iguanas and sea turtles. Plus the kayaking was a high point for me. (more)Camilla Reeve
From £2135 including domestic flights only

The wildlife was just awesome! Even more amazing than we'd expected! The crew were fantastic - really friendly and welcoming and the guides were exceptional. (more)Christine Ennew

From £1999 excluding flights
Galapagos 2 week cruise, Ecuador
Memorable parts? The fantastic wildlife. The friendly crew. The very knowlable guide. Tips? If travelling alone - pay the extra for your own cabin. Take as little as possible - you can always rinse things out & dry them! A couple of pairs of shorts or trousers & a couple of t-shirts, GOOD soled shoes & sandles. 60+ Sun block, Deet. AND CAMERA(s) Don't spend money on new clothes before you go! Local benefits? The locals certainly appeared to make the most of the tourist trade!!!!!!... (more)Margaret Dolan
From £5215 - £5565 including UK flights
Galapagos activity holiday
Memorable parts? The SEA LIONS are great encounters. Especially on San Cristobal Island being such close proximity with them on beaches is almost unheard of anywhere else in the world! That is a real specialty of the trip! Walking the Volcano surfaces on Isabel Island was amazing too! Tips? Organised tours don't seem to include the chance to be able to Scooba Dive with the Sea Lions or other sea life, so best to book that separately by extending your holiday by 1 day or skip the...

From £1695 excluding flights
Galapagos family holiday
We loved the holiday - it was the whole family's favourite to date and was made special because of the other families and the Guides, esp. in the Galapagos where Pedro, the local guide, was intelligent, fun and great with the children. (more)Vimty Muir
The most memorable part of our holiday was the unique wildlife, unafraid of humans - the seals especially. The local people were very friendly and worth spending money on to benefit their economy - children beautiful. (more)Barry A Clout
From £2815 - £3295 including UK flights
Galapagos conservation projects
Flying over San Cristobal Island in the Galapagos then landing on the tiny airstrip right by the sea and seeing unique plants and animals for the first time that I had only seen in books or in documentaries was the most exciting part. (more)Sue Gardner
Most memorable? Swimming with sea lions but a close second was the community of people that is jatun sacha. (more)John Sheehan
From £1195 excluding flights
Galapagos cruises
The first day arriving in Galapagos and seeing the sea turtles, snorkelling, swimming next to sealions was the most memorable part of this holiday. (more)Miss D.D
The most memorable parts were seeing and swimming with many of the wildlife including penguins, sea lions, dolphins. Driving through ocean surrounded by volcanoes on all sides. (more)Matt Hayden
Visiting one of the most unique places left on earth, and seeing how protective tours and the park authorities are keeping it that way, were most memorable. Amazing and excellent - truly a trip of a lifetime, and one of the few times one can genuinely use the word 'awesome'. (more)Ayesha Kyari
From £1321 - £2830 excluding flights
Galapagos adventure holiday with volunteering
A fantastic mix of meaningful volunteering work, organised activities and free time to do your own thing (more)Dot Lemon
The volunteering at foundation reserve is the most memorable as we get to contribute back to the Galapagos National Park as well as making new friends and understanding the objectives/ problems of conserving the Islands. (more)Lisa Teo
The most memorable part was discovering the beautiful Galapagos islands with their varied plants, birds and animals, differing from one island to another. (more)Kate Martin
From US $2390 excluding flights
Ecuador and Galapagos holiday
Memorable parts? Zip-Lining in the Cloud Forest but the Galapagos was amazing. Tips? Definitely take a torch, wet weather clothing and a sense of humour. Local benefits? Yes, definitely. Overall rating? Brilliant but the cloud forest was a bit disappointing as we had continual rain and saw very few animals or birds. This also occurred in the Amazon. We were told by the operator that rain was minimal with short bursts. Obviously a joke. (more)Anne Goffin
From £4345 - £4555 excluding flights
