I spent a lot of time discussing this holiday with Think Galapagos. She was able to answer every question quickly and authoritatively and was very sensitive to my comments and preferences. A really personal service resulting in a great holiday. Our Quito based guide could not be faulted. The hotels were all good - some exceptional. San Augustin and Mansion Alcazar merit particular mention. The high Andes are spectacular. Cormorant was excellent with a great guide and we enjoyed a couple of days on San Cristobal at the end. Fascinating to get some idea of what life is like on one of the islands.
We were also interested to find out that only 50% of Galapagos tourism is now boat based. Island hopping combined with day boat excursions are increasingly common and would make for a different (and cheaper?) option. We loved the relaxation of the luxe boat but found 4 nights/5 days enough for us.
