review 18 May 2008

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

Zip-Lining in the Cloud Forest but the Galapagos was amazing.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Definitely take a torch, wet weather clothing and a sense of humour.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, and minimized impacts on the environment?

Yes, definitely.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

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.

Read the operator's response here:

Overall I am very pleased that our clients had such a good time on their trip. I would like to put up a quick response to point 4. In April/May 2008 the weather in Ecuador was exceptionally wet with rainfall around three times the expected average. We do try very hard to make sure that clients travel with realistic expectations of the conditions they will encounter. In this particular instance mother nature got in the way. On the plus side, this group had unbroken good weather in the Galapagos.
