“Andes to Amazon & the Galapagos Islands-17th May -1st...”

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

Truly the trip of a lifetime! From the moment of arrival in Quito till the day of departure at Guayaquil airport, the organisation was so efficient and the welcome genuinely warm. The experience of travelling in a paddle canoe through the Rain Forest with local guides pointing out the wildlife was amazing - a word I would use for every day of the trip. We stayed in the Napo Wildlife Centre, a wonderful remote settlement in the Amazon Jungle that can only be reached by canoe. The Galapagos… Read Full Review

Travel company arranged excellent tours/stay for nearly a week in the Amazon rainforest and a relaxing stay in the Volcanic area of Ecquador.Selected guides spoke excellent English some of whom were educated/lived in the UK. ( We speak medium level French) of no use when we selected guides ourselves… Read Full Review

“Galapagos and Cloud Forest”

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

My wife and I traveled with three other friends to Ecuador to visit the Galapagos Islands with side trips to the cloud forest (before the Islands) and to the town of Otavalo (after the Islands). My expectations were exceeded in every aspect. Even a potential disaster when the boat the guide had chartered developed problems just before our arrival turned into a very positive experience. The guide worked hard to provide us with a vastly upgraded ship at no extra cost to us. The crew and… Read Full Review

“Wonderful holiday”

Written on: 27/02/2013 by VictoriaSponge (2 reviews written)

From our first contact with [names removed], we were impressed with the level of knowledge and experience at ThinkGalapagos. All our questions were answered, the tour planned with efficiency and everything worked like clockwork. We were met at each destination and transferred to our accommodation, and then on to the boat for the cruise around the Galapagos. The days were planned efficiently for all clients to make the most of spotting the wonderful animals and birds, as well as leisure… Read Full Review

“This was a ten star Holiday!”

Written on: 27/02/2013 by Andyluck (1 review written)

Rachel put together a brilliant package for us consisting of an 8 day cruise round The galapagos Islands & then another week touring round Equador. She & Santiago worked very hard to make this a perfect Holiday & it was. [name removed] was on hand to answer any queries we had in a patient & friendly way so that when we arrived in Equador everything ran like clockwork. She listened to our requirements & made some suggestions so that we got the most out of our fantastic trip. We are now saving… Read Full Review

Altho its over 2 years since we travelled to The Galapagos Islands with Think Galapagos the memories are still very much alive.The trip ran smoothly + we were looked after from the moment we landed in Quito.The accomodation was superb both in Quito + also on the Galapagos Islands + in the Amazon.

“Peru, Equador and Galapagos”

Written on: 27/02/2013 by SLynch (1 review written)

Think Galapagos put together an amazing tour for us with extensive travel between destinations Peru, Equador and Galapagos staying in some quite remote locations such as the hacienda near Quito to the remote Amazon jungle at the Napo Wildlife Centre. At each destination or airport we were met by a local representative, all local guides were excellent with good knowledge and English speaking. The whole trip was quite complex taking in lots of travel and tours but all went brilliantly without… Read Full Review

“The Holiday of a Lifetime”

Written on: 27/02/2013 by caroljesmond (1 review written)

My holiday to The Galapagos and Equador in April 2012, with a couple of friends, was the most spectacular adventure I have experienced.There was so much variety from the fantastic hotel in Quito,with the best views over the mountains,to the lodge in Equador,then the breathtaking Galapagos Islands.There was so much variety on this holiday, wildlife, birds, flora, lava flows and so much more. Amazing how interesting lava can be. Santiago was a wonderful guide always concerned that we were safe… Read Full Review

“Great inside knowledge!”

Written on: 27/02/2013 by MarkArcher (1 review written)

We had a fabulous holiday in the Galapagos Islands and Ecuador thanks to the superb organisation and friendly service of Think Galapagos. They thought of everything for us and booked us onto a wonderful boat with a great guide and crew. They were there (or on a mobile)to hold our hand all the way, even when a delayed flight from Gatwick meant we missed our connection in Madrid. [name removed] liked the Galapagos so much she married an Ecuadorean (Santiago) and their 'inside knowledge' really… Read Full Review

“Everything worked like clockwork”

Written on: 27/02/2013

From our very first contact, Think Galapagos ticked all the boxes. We talked about what we wanted to do and they assembled a package just for us. We visited Ecuador and the Galapagos islands as members of a fully escorted tour then they arranged a 16 day tour of Peru as independent travellers, with arranged hotels, drivers and guides, who were all excellent. They took the trouble to organise a pre-trip briefing which included information on clothing, activities, which were the best flights… Read Full Review

“Think Galapagos - think exceptional!”

Written on: 27/02/2013 by swalker42 (1 review written)

From initial discussion to actual execution [name removed] and the team were a pleasure to deal with. She listened and then suggested, and backed the suggestions with delivery. Her colleagues in Ecuador were interested and interesting, the hotel, hacienda and boat of high quality, and the whole holiday unique. There are few times that I would give an unqualified recommendation but this is one of them - of course the Galpagos themselves provide a stunning basis for a holiday - if you've never… Read Full Review

“Ecuador and Galapagos”

Written on: 27/02/2013 by Judyq (1 review written)

I travelled with my daughter to Ecuador and Galapagos three years ago now using the expertise of Think Galapagos. I had never travelled this far before and was therefore slightly apprehensive. Through discussions with [name removed] she helped us plan a trip which was tailored to our needs and our budget. We had a trip of a lifetime and stayed in some wonderful places and saw some amazing sights. Three weeks is not a long time when you are travelling that far and therefore it is very important… Read Full Review

“Galapagos and Ecuador”

Written on: 27/02/2013 by BobandDoreen (1 review written)

The experience started months before the trip when [name removed] invited us to meet our fellow travellers at their home in Yorkshire. We then did the "Sail boat" tour of Galapagos which turned into the holiday of a lifetime. When we returned to the mainland we were delayed for a day by the airline rescheduling our flight. "Think Galapagos" stepped up to the plate and organised an extra day at our hotel and a day excursion (with qualified guide) of our choice. Throughout our tour we felt we… Read Full Review

“Galapagos, Quito and Cloud Forest”

Written on: 26/02/2013 by TedNess (1 review written)

An excellent tour. They took the trouble to find out about us in advance, discuss what we wanted, make suggestions and give us plenty of advice on what to expect. Santiago was extremely knowledgeable on all the wildlife, birdlife and geography and extremely good company. A very well organised tour, and obviously a lot of thought had been put into the choice of local guides, accommodation and boat (plus crew). Literally nothing was too much trouble. The value of such a professional organisation… Read Full Review

“A Fantastic Experience”

Written on: 26/02/2013 by patnanne (1 review written)

An amazing experience from Think Galapagos. It was all we had hoped for plus much more. Firstly, such efficient organisation, the whole trip was entirely stress and trouble free. Everyone in the planned itinerary was there to meet us at the appointed place and time and each one of them was charming, welcoming and most helpful. Casa Aliso, a delightful bijou hotel, where the staff were most pleasant and helpful – extremely comfortable and welcoming after the long flight. The journey to the… Read Full Review

Both [name removed] and her husband work incredibly hard to ensure clients receive the best possible holiday in the Galapagos.

“Trip of a lifetime”

Written on: 26/02/2013 by olgaeyre (1 review written)

We travelled to Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands in March 2012 as a grown up family of 4. [name removed] from Think Galapagos helped us to plan a holiday that suited us and then organised every detail. We spent a couple of nights in Quito, then in Hacienda Zuleta, followed by a couple of nights in a hotel on one of the Galapagos Islands before going on a 6 night cruise of the islands. Hacienda Zuleta was a really special experience. It is a hotel that is part of a working farm in the Andes… Read Full Review

Thank You ... Think Galapagos for arranging such a super trip for us last year July 2012.
From arriving in Quito. Watching condors on horseback in the Andes at Zuleta. Sailing the Galapagos and sitting with Iguana's in the park in Guayaquil. The whole trip was fabulous from start to finish. The guides superb. We were treated First Class all the way.
Thank you Rachel, for never making me feel, bad when I changed our dates and itinerary several times :(
We had a wonderful time... Thank You..

“Well Organized and Run Tour of Galapagos”

Written on: 26/02/2013 by jartigas (1 review written)

My experience can be summed up with a story. After spending a few days in hotels exploring some of the islands, it was time for us to get on a yacht to tour the remaining islands. As luck would have it, the yacht they had reserved for us sustained a major electrical failure the day before. So, Santiago asked us if it would be all right with us to take a sailboat instead. We didn't mind! The sailboat was also propeller driven, and we used the propeller to get around, but it still made for a… Read Full Review

“Cloud Forest & Galapagos exceptional”

Written on: 26/02/2013 by JaneRutter (1 review written)

We had a wonderful time. The trip was extremely well organised - we stayed in places with real character and had experts on hand all the time. [name removed] helped us a lot before the trip and organised an aftertrip extension to Peru and Machu Pichu as well. Santiago accompanied us on the trip; he is great company and has lived and guided in the Galapogos; he is also an experienced naturalist. We effectively had two guides accompanying our group of 15 for the whole trip. He went beyond… Read Full Review
