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 have construction work ongoing to build a new restaurant and viewing tower. There is some noise due to use of chainsaws etc, which can be a bit distracting when you return after a day trip depending on which accommodation you're in. They do try and keep it to a minimum and gave guests a complimentary bottle of wine as compensation. Please don't be put off by this as you would be missing out on some exceptional wildlife viewing and hospitality from the Kichua community.
If you are passionate about wildlife and conservation like myself, The Galapagos Islands are for you. Every Island is unique and the naturalists and crew take every care that we humans do not spoil what is one of the only places on the planet that animals are left alone to live as they should.
