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 Island guide.
The pre-trip information was excellent and [name removed]'s attention to every detail was the best - for example, having a named, friendly taxi driver there to meet one on arrival in a new country and interpret the landmarks we passed on the way to the hotel was just so reassuring AND informative.
All the accommodation, guides and staff along the way were excellent, the itinerary was well balanced and flexible and ensured a highly informative and enjoyable experience. The places Santiago took us, the wildlife we encountered and the people we met were all fantastic and above all Santiago's warmth and consideration for each member of the party were exceptional. Friendships were made on this trip that will last a life time.
For an all-encompassing holiday in Ecuador I cannot reccommend Think Galapagos highly enough and I very much look forward to exploring another South American country with Santiago and Think Galapagos in the future.
