review 17 Jul 2017

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

Swimming with sea turtles and seeing dolphins and whales around our boat. The wildlife generally in the Galapagos is great, as is the volcanic landscape.

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

Be aware that there is a lot of snorkelling. If that is not your thing, this tour is not for you. Also, as a land based tour, we did not visit any uninhabited islands, with the exception of snorkelling off Kicker Rock. If you want to see more islands, a boat based tour may be better.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

We stayed in locally owned hotels and I think more of our money ended up in the hands of local people compared to boat tours that may operate.

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

Fantastic. Memories of seeing all the amazing wildlife will last a lifetime.

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

Wildlife - once in a lifetime encounters; especially swimming with sealions, sharks and turtles.

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

It is full on! So much activity, this is fantastic but tiring and a good level of fitness (both in and out of the water) is essential.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Absolutely, especially as our guide was a local and recommended restaurants etc

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

Great once we were there. I was fairly unimpressed with the tour operator however as they made numerous errors on our booking (some of which ie names and DOB could have been really detrimental).
