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 topics as what clothing to take as well as having an opportunity to meet other participants.
Accommodation in hotels, and on our boat was excellent. The boat crew were wonderful, always attentive to guest's needs on board and when getting ashore. We were accompanied throughout by Santiago as well as by local guides. With a party of just 15 this meant that expert and enthusiastic knowledge was always available.
A holiday of this type is inevitably expensive and for many will be a once in a lifetime experience. For this reason it is important that the highest standards of care and expertise are provided. We were delighted that our expectations were so thoroughly met and our original trust justified. We have since been on a further holiday with this company and will have no hesitation in doing so again.
