“Simply the Best”

Written on: 20/03/2013

We travelled with Think Galapagos in October 2011 taking in the Islands, Zuletta Hacienda in the High Andes, Napa Reserve in the Amazon and finally the Cloud Forest. From the very first phone call and the exceptionally friendly and enthusiastic response, we knew we were in expert hands. They showed deep knowledge, passion for, and direct experience of all the areas we wanted to visit. Nothing was ever too much trouble to suit our wishes. The invitation for a pre-trip visit to their home in… Read Full Review

“Think Galapagos - Let Them Start Your Adventure!”

Written on: 18/03/2013

Think Galapagos were so thoughtful and insightful in organising a truly wonderful trip to Ecuador and the Galapagos for me, my wife and our two daughters. Their advice over the itinerary was soundly based upon their own experiences, and proved invaluable. The journey around the islands featured an interesting multinational group of 14, a superb crew (fantastic food) and possibly the world's most knowledgeable and engaging guide (named Darwin!) We loved the way the geology of the islands, their… Read Full Review

“Wow- Amazing”

Written on: 17/03/2013 by Warehams (1 review written)

We had an amazing holiday in Ecuador, Galapagos, and Peru- all arranged by Think Galapagos. [name removed] was meticulous with the organisation and with the benefit of her experiences of travelling with children and her husbands knowledge of both the boats and the climate around the Galapagos, we had the holiday of a lifetime. It went without a hitch ( and we had 5 weeks in South America) All their agents were at the airports to meet us and the guides we had in all 3 places could not be… Read Full Review

“Individual tour arranged by Think Galapagos”

Written on: 15/03/2013 by KathyHodgkinson (1 review written)

After experiencing a wonderful group trip to Ecuador and the Galapagos with Santiago we asked them to arrange an individual trip to Peru and Bolivia, with the added complication that we did not know exactly when we could start as we were awaiting the birth of a grandchild in Brazil. [name removed] took that problem in her stride and arranged a super trip for us, starting and ending in Rio, covering everything we had asked for and a few more things she recommended. The guides were extremely… Read Full Review

“Ecuador & Galapagos, then a year later Guatamala”

Written on: 11/03/2013

With a maximum of 16 in the group we all got individual attention. Everything from the time the plane landed was looked after. Superb knowledgeable leader and local guides. All our wants looked after even when we were in remote places that most visitors do not even get to. Good local food organised for us. Even when my flight home was leaving 9 hours late those at home were quickly informed. Two of the best holidays I have ever had. Paul Parker… Read Full Review

Written on: 08/03/2013 by KBonGal (1 review written)

This was a 10 day trip comprising 8 days on the 'Angelito' and 2 days in Santa Cruz. Tha arrangements were complicated because of the addional stay at the end and also the need to get up to Manta quickly at the end. All arrangements worked smoothly and the boat and accommoation were exactly what was required. Highly recommended… Read Full Review

“An amazing holiday”

We booked with Think Galapagos after watching a presentation by Santiago where his passion for his home country and his knowledge of the wildlife of the islands was very evident. The preparation and planning prior to departure were excelent and message were answered promptly. We were able to extend our holiday by arriving a few days proir to the tour and again accommodation and arrangements were planned to suit our requirements. Everything just fell into place. The leaders and guides were… Read Full Review

“Thinking of visiting the Galapagos? Go to Think Galapagos ”

Written on: 05/03/2013 by voirreyheath (1 review written)

We were recommended to use Think Galapagos, to plan our celebratory birthday trip, by friends who had previously traveled with them. It was a good move. [name removed]'s impeccable arrangements quickly found us the itinary of our choice on a most beautiful boat - the 'Cormorant'. Sixteen visitors, ten crew and an excellent naturalist/guide, huge cabins with a balcony and first class food. Travel around the islands is now very strictly controlled and monitored but nothing detracts from the magic… Read Full Review

“Iguanas, turtles & blue-footed boobies ”

Written on: 05/03/2013 by ChrisandSylvia (1 review written)

This was our trip of a lifetime & [name removed] ensured that it was just perfect. Avoiding the possibility of altitude sickness at Quito meant that she organised our trip to start at Guayaquil, with a private city guide. The island cruise on catamaran Athala, with just 16 other travellers was excellent - with high quality food, comfort & service. Our guide was well informed & every island brought new delights. Snorkelling with the turtles, seals & cormorants was a highlight.We encountered far… Read Full Review

“"Think Galapagos" thought of everything!”

Written on: 05/03/2013 by ValandHenry (1 review written)

We are Canadians who travelled with this British based company and cannot praise the trip too highly. The natural beauty of the Ecuador rainforests and the Galapagos Islands are well documented. Travelling with "Think Galapagos" made this the trip of a lifetime. There were no glitches, individual needs were met with real caring and professionalism. The local guides they used were very knowledgable and friendly. When visiting the various Galapagos Islands we seem to be able to linger longer… Read Full Review

Written on: 04/03/2013 by MaryKP (1 review written)

Last year after researching a number of companies for my trip I chose Think Galapagos as they were knowledgeable and very helpful to ensure that I made the most of my 'once in a lifetime' trip to the rain forest and Galapagos. As soon as I returned from that trip I was arranging the next one it was so good. Ten months later I was off again to the rain forest and Galapagos, different lodge and boat, and if anything even better that the first trip. On both occasions everyone involved, either with… Read Full Review

My trip to the galapagos was truly amazing and an unforgettable experience. I would not hesitate to recommend Think Galapagos as they are extremely helpful to arrange your trip to suit all requirments. The Galapagos islands are very unspoilt and a Paradise not to be missed. It made all the difference travalling with a company who knew the islands so well and were equally passionate about your trip. C… Read Full Review

“Amazing Experience”

Written on: 03/03/2013 by sheilb (1 review written)

A huge thank you for a fabulous time. Each day brought new and wonderful sights and experiences. From the start exceptional care and attention was given to all the travel details. This was continued through the crew on board the boat. The islands are stunningly beautiful and were brought to life by the extensive knowledge of Santiago and Carlos on all aspects of the islands, their history, wild and plant life. The flexible approach and diligent efforts to ensure that everyone got to… Read Full Review

“Unforgetable well put together trip to an amazing place”

Written on: 03/03/2013 by JanetnDave (1 review written)

We wanted to visit Galapagos and Quito as part of our round the world trip and Think Galapagos provided helpful advice and the perfect itinerary to fill the two week gap we had. All our queries were promptly dealt with and we were kept informed of everything relevant to our trip. Our flight from Miami was delayed and [name removed] was very helpful at sorting our airport transfer to ensure we were met in Quito even though we did not land until 3am, about 6 hours later than expected. Everything… Read Full Review

Written on: 03/03/2013 by hubertcurran (1 review written)

I have wanted to visit the Galapagos Islands for a very long time - since reading Darwin's "Voyage of the Beagle" in my late teens. When I came to the point of planning to go, I researched the possibilities thoroughly and talked to several people who had already been. 'Think Galapagos' came with a wonderful personal recommendation from a previous client and my contacts with them were dealt with promptly and comprehensively. I liked the idea that [name removed] was Ecuadorian and had spent many… Read Full Review

An amazing adventure fulfilled all expectations. Superb organisation, excellent guides, interesting itinerary with lots of wonderful wildlife and snmall group that made an older solo lady traveller feel welcome and included all the way. Santiago of Think Galapagos knew his country well and shared his passion for it at every moment. Booking the trip made easier by [name removed] who answered all my questions giving reassurance and confidence. The Cloud Forest of Ecuador is, even for someone not… Read Full Review

“An Incredible Trip”

Written on: 01/03/2013 by AlanSmewing (1 review written)

The Galapagos is incredibly varied, from the black volcanic landscape of Fernandina, to the mangroves of Santiago and the mist shrouded highlands of Santa Cruz. Every day there was something different and each stop along the way had a different feel to the others. The opportunities to see wildlife were incredible, especially when most of the animals aren't really bothered by humans, so you can watch them just going about their business. It's difficult to describe how amazing the trip was, it… Read Full Review

“Well Organised Brilliant Trip”

Written on: 28/02/2013 by Simon_W (1 review written)

A trip to the Galapagos had been my wife's ambition since she heard about the islands as a child, so it had to be special. After our initial investigations we were fortunately directed to THINK Galapagos to organise our trip. [name removed]'s knowledge and experience was extremely helpful in identifying the best combination of options we could fit in the time we had available. We started with a trip to Napo Lodge and a chance to see the amazing Amazon Jungle, then on to the Galapagos where… Read Full Review
