Client comments and reviews

Open QuoteThe Galapagos cruise was magical. The boat, guides, crew, food and the small boat size passenger wise, we could not fault. Couldn't recommend them highly enough. We were on the Flamingo 1 and had terrific weather. What an amazing place and to be able to get so close to all those unique creatures, was truly unforgettable.Close Quote - GD (January 2011)
Open QuoteThe Galapagos was excellent. We were particularly glad to be on Eric with other families. We liked the small size of the boat, the children got on instantly with the other children, and the guides were both brilliant. It may not be the most luxurious boat out there but it suited us perfectly. The experience was unforgettable.Close Quote - CW (April 2009)
Open QuoteThe Islands themselves were astounding and the staff excellent. The people we were with on the boat were a great bunch - T bonded instantly with all the other kids.Close Quote - JK (April 2008)
Open QuoteThe Galapagos was fabulous and not too hot as it was overcast most of the time. We had heard that you could get close to the birds and the beast but had not realised just how close. It was a good group on the boat, Letty, who all got on well with each other. There were six Canadians, six Scotsman, two Now Yorkers and ourselves making 16 in all. The crew and guides were excellent.Close Quote - PS (November 2007)
