“Literally the very best!”

Written on: 29/09/2014

I just wanted to say that thiink Galápagos is absolutely the best possible company to use for anybody even considering going to the Galapagos. They will answer every single possible question you have, they will recommend that ideal and perfect boat and cruise for you and they will get you the best possible price. In fact, planning a trip to the Galapagos can be incredibly confusing due to the great number of boats and tour operators. Furthermore many websites are not entirely accurate, however… Read Full Review

“Experience of a Lifetime in Peru, Galapagos and Ecuador”

Written on: 07/06/2014 by dunmor (1 review written)

This has been an experience and adventure of a lifetime. It is difficult to pinpoint the high lights as there were so many - every day! ----- some to mention---- Sunrise in Machu Picchu, the birds, animals and the snorkelling in Galapagos and horse riding in Zuleta to see the condors! However, one thing is certain - the preparation and organisation of this trip by Think Galapagos meant that everything (the travel arrangements with transfers, the hotels, Tip Top II with the wonderful crew and of… Read Full Review

“Ecuador and Galapagos Cruise”

Written on: 04/06/2014 by CharlieHart (1 review written)

My wife and I have just returned from the holiday of a lifetime to Ecuador and Galapagos Islands with Think Galapagos. From our initial enquiry with Rachel to discuss our options, through to delivering our trip, every step went like clockwork. In some cases Rachel even answered our queries whilst in Quito. Ecuador - our guide for all our trips was Daniel King and what a font of knowledge he was on historical matters and flora and fauna. Highlights were visit to orchid reserve, hummingbirds at… Read Full Review

“Smooth trip - highly recommended!”

Written on: 15/05/2014 by esq20 (1 review written)

Think Galapagos helped us arrange our Galapagos trip at quite sort notice over Easter, and still managed to find a reasonable rate for us with one of our top choice sailing yachts, the Beagle! It was very reassuring to hear her own experience on the Beagle. She has been extremely quick to respond to queries, and she provided us with plenty of information before the trip - including what to bring and a recommended reading list. We really enjoyed the extra day at Puerto Ayora, which was… Read Full Review

“Informative, Adventure and Excitement”

Written on: 24/02/2014 by louisagordon (1 review written)

Me and my friend used Think Galapàgos for a 10 day tour of Ecuador. Before we went, the advisor kept in contact to ensure that we knew everything that was going to happen and we were fully prepared and happy with the trip. Once in Ecuador, all transfers were perfect. Always on time, and usually early. And our tour guides were second to none. They all had a positive outlook and in depth knowledge of their surroundings. Our favourite part of our trip was spent in Mindo where we had the… Read Full Review

“The most amazing holiday ever”

Written on: 03/02/2014 by Pixijan (1 review written)

We cannot than Think Galapagos enough for giving us the most amazing holiday ever.   We are well travelled but can honestly say we are speechless at how amazing our experience in Ecuador was.   From the perfectly timed flights to the guides, crew and staff in Quito, Amazon and The Galapagos everything was faultless.   The itinerary hit every wish we had in terms of what we hoped for and beyond.   One very small negative point of note was that the NAPO Wildlife Centre (Amazon) currently… Read Full Review

“The holiday of a lifetime - superbly organised”

Written on: 10/01/2014 by Jonph (1 review written)

Think Galapagos could not have been anymore helpful from start to finish. After reading what we were interested in they put a fantastic itinerary together for a week on Ecuador's mainland, followed by a week sailing around the Galapagos Islands. The communication and advice during the 18 months we were planning this was superb. No question went unanswered. The accommodation was first class. Transfers were all sorted and we were met when we were meant to have been. They clearly are passionate… Read Full Review

“Memories that will last a lifetime”

Written on: 25/07/2013 by GarySmith1 (1 review written)

We had often thought of visiting the Galapagos Islands and as our son was studying Zoology at Uni thought it would be the right time to go. Looking through various web pages we came across "Think Galapagos", filled in an inquiry form and within 10 minutes a lady had rang us back to see what she could do to help. As we hadn't really thought about what we could do in Galapagos, she came up with a plan based on the type of holiday we like. We decided on a 3 week trip to Galapagos and Peru (as Peru… Read Full Review

“Best holiday ever!”

Written on: 15/07/2013 by brighteyes83 (1 review written)

Our expectations of the Galapagos Islands were very high but they were exceeded at every turn. From the moment we contacted Think Galapagos we were incredibly impressed by the helpfulness and professional attitude Rachel had - she even replied to some of our questions out of office hours which was great - and we couldn't be happier with the trip she planned for us. Even when we were out there and one of the flights was cancelled, a member of the team contacted us via the B&B to let us know what… Read Full Review

“Lifetime Adventure”

Written on: 05/07/2013 by Suerush (1 review written)

Since being a child and first reading about Galapagos and Charles Darwin, it has been a lifetime ambition for me to visit these enchanting islands. I heard about Think Galapagos for the first time in an article published by a local newspaper group a few years ago and by pure coincidence came across it on the internet. After initial inquiries to Rachel, I was hooked and knew I would be safe travelling on my own but as part of one of their groups. I cannot speak too highly of the organisation… Read Full Review

“Mindo Cloud Forest and Galapagos Islands. ”

Written on: 02/05/2013 by sophmay (1 review written)

My partner and I had been offered a trip, by my father, to the Galapagos islands. From the moment he spoke to them Rachel was in regular contact to discuss the trip. I told her I'd love to go to the Cloud Forest in Ecuador and she arranged this for us before we visited the Galapagos. Rachel was absolutely wonderful; always on hand to answer any questions and sorted absolutely everything. She arranged for someone to meet us at the airports to pick us up and to take us to the terminal to catch… Read Full Review

“Excellent arrangements!”

Written on: 26/04/2013 by sylvana (1 review written)

From the start of the booking process to the very end of the holiday itself, Think Galapagos offered excellent service. She gave good advice, was very patient when I changed my travel dates and talked through different options. Think Galapagos is far more considerate and professional than many competing companies. My itinerary in Ecuador was brilliant, the guides were excellent and the hotels and lodge well-chosen. I cannot fault Think Galapagos and would definitely use them again. The… Read Full Review

“ThinkGalapagos, Changes is Latitude, Changes it...”

Written on: 26/04/2013 by SBrodsky (1 review written)

We discovered ThinkGalapagos as a referral from another South American agent we had previously used for a previous vacation. We always look for the EXPERTS; not some cookie-cutter agent that offers a fully-formed trip with the choices “they have decided” are “best” for us. My husband and I – along with close friends - have always DREAMED of traveling to the Galapagos. Collectively, we cannot tell you how much this was truly a Dream Come True! We owe that largely to ThinkGalapagos… Read Full Review

Written on: 16/04/2013 by RoyandElizabeth (1 review written)

We first encountered Think Galapagos when we attended a presentation on The galapagos Islands given by its proprietor Santiago Begerano. We were imressed by his knowledge and enthusiasm for the subject of the natural world in his native Ecuador & Galapagos. As result we decided to book a holiday to Ecuador and The Galapagos Islands with Think Galapagos, and enjoyed an escorted tour in Novemger 2011 After booking, we were invited to the family home for a pre briefing giving information on such… Read Full Review

“From humming birds to sea lions - a great holiday”

Written on: 04/04/2013 by M.Nicholson (1 review written)

My friend Judith and I enjoyed a fascinating holiday in Ecuador, with a week on the mainland and another in the Galapagos - and all arranged by a local firm with final arrangements made in the home of Think Galapagos' proprietor! The staff at Casa Aliso in Quito couldn't do enough for us even bringing Judith's forgotten purchases to a different hotel that we stayed in the final night. Our programme on the mainland was tailor made, taking us to the humming birds of the cloud forest and the… Read Full Review

“Thinking of Ecuador? Think Galapagos!”

My introduction to South America was with Think Galapagos in 2010 when [name removed] arranged THE most wonderful experience imaginable! First, I spent a few very memorable days at the amazing Napo Wilslife Centre - don't miss out on this, it's a must! I then joined a small international party for a further two weeks spent exploring the cloud forest, the high paramo and finally the Galapagos Islands aboard the aptly named Tip Top 111 with it's warm and generous crew and excellent Galapagos… Read Full Review

“Best Holiday Experience EVER”

Santiago was the Best! Nothing was too much trouble and made a fantastic holiday the best it could be. I did not want another wild life holiday as I am convinced nothing could ever match or exceed it. I would love to do it all over again!! There was everything to like and nothing to dislike except I was exhausted… Read Full Review

“A very special trip...”

Written on: 21/03/2013

On returning home from our trip with Think Galapagos to Ecuador and the Galapagos islands I was asked by a friend how it had been. I answered in one word "Wow"! This really was a very special trip. From initial enquiries, to making decisions about where to go and what to see, the staff in Think Galapagos were extremely knowledgeable and helpful. The attention to detail was extremely impressive and they went out of their way to ensure that our holiday suited our needs and requirements in every… Read Full Review
