The Galapagos Islands are very special, this was an amazing trip. The birds, animals, ship, people and weather all combined to make it a truly enchanted journey.
Another wonderful Naturetrek holiday - thank you. Also a very nice group of people, many of whom we hope to stay in contact with. The highlight of the holiday was every aspect of the Galapagos; the wildlife, the snorkelling (with penguins, sea lions and a shoal of approximately 100 yellow cownose rays), the island trips and the lovely yacht Cachelote with superb service and food. We also loved the trip to Antisana and Sacha Lodge.
This was an excellent holiday. Ive been to many places in the world and this holiday is up with my best holidays ever. You have a brilliant team of guide. Zavier is excellent at organisation/people management/clarity of instructions/putting peoples minds at rest, and enthusiasm for all aspects of wildlife in his country. Juans knowledge and interest in the travellers was excellent. His knowledge of plants was phenomenal. Both never tired of responding to our enthusiasm and questions and went out of their way to make our visit memorable. Our guide a the Sacha lodge extension, Elicio, had a passion for the forest world and kept bringing us little creatures to see before returning them to their habitat. Well done!
