“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

“Ecuador & Galapagos with Think Galapagos”

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!”

Written on: 26/03/2013 by janetwilson (1 review written)

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”

Written on: 25/03/2013

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

“Simply the Best”

Written on: 20/03/2013

We travelled with Think Galapagos in October 2011 taking in the Islands, Zuletta Hacienda in the High Andes, Napa Reserve in the Amazon and finally the Cloud Forest. From the very first phone call and the exceptionally friendly and enthusiastic response, we knew we were in expert hands. They showed deep knowledge, passion for, and direct experience of all the areas we wanted to visit. Nothing was ever too much trouble to suit our wishes. The invitation for a pre-trip visit to their home in… Read Full Review

“Think Galapagos - Let Them Start Your Adventure!”

Written on: 18/03/2013

Think Galapagos were so thoughtful and insightful in organising a truly wonderful trip to Ecuador and the Galapagos for me, my wife and our two daughters. Their advice over the itinerary was soundly based upon their own experiences, and proved invaluable. The journey around the islands featured an interesting multinational group of 14, a superb crew (fantastic food) and possibly the world's most knowledgeable and engaging guide (named Darwin!) We loved the way the geology of the islands, their… Read Full Review

“Wow- Amazing”

Written on: 17/03/2013 by Warehams (1 review written)

We had an amazing holiday in Ecuador, Galapagos, and Peru- all arranged by Think Galapagos. [name removed] was meticulous with the organisation and with the benefit of her experiences of travelling with children and her husbands knowledge of both the boats and the climate around the Galapagos, we had the holiday of a lifetime. It went without a hitch ( and we had 5 weeks in South America) All their agents were at the airports to meet us and the guides we had in all 3 places could not be… Read Full Review

“Individual tour arranged by Think Galapagos”

Written on: 15/03/2013 by KathyHodgkinson (1 review written)

After experiencing a wonderful group trip to Ecuador and the Galapagos with Santiago we asked them to arrange an individual trip to Peru and Bolivia, with the added complication that we did not know exactly when we could start as we were awaiting the birth of a grandchild in Brazil. [name removed] took that problem in her stride and arranged a super trip for us, starting and ending in Rio, covering everything we had asked for and a few more things she recommended. The guides were extremely… Read Full Review

“Ecuador & Galapagos, then a year later Guatamala”

Written on: 11/03/2013

With a maximum of 16 in the group we all got individual attention. Everything from the time the plane landed was looked after. Superb knowledgeable leader and local guides. All our wants looked after even when we were in remote places that most visitors do not even get to. Good local food organised for us. Even when my flight home was leaving 9 hours late those at home were quickly informed. Two of the best holidays I have ever had. Paul Parker… Read Full Review

This was a 10 day trip comprising 8 days on the 'Angelito' and 2 days in Santa Cruz. Tha arrangements were complicated because of the addional stay at the end and also the need to get up to Manta quickly at the end. All arrangements worked smoothly and the boat and accommoation were exactly what was required. Highly recommended… Read Full Review

We booked with Think Galapagos after watching a presentation by Santiago where his passion for his home country and his knowledge of the wildlife of the islands was very evident. The preparation and planning prior to departure were excelent and message were answered promptly. We were able to extend our holiday by arriving a few days proir to the tour and again accommodation and arrangements were planned to suit our requirements. Everything just fell into place. The leaders and guides were… Read Full Review

“Thinking of visiting the Galapagos? Go to Think Galapagos ”

Written on: 05/03/2013 by voirreyheath (1 review written)

We were recommended to use Think Galapagos, to plan our celebratory birthday trip, by friends who had previously traveled with them. It was a good move. [name removed]'s impeccable arrangements quickly found us the itinary of our choice on a most beautiful boat - the 'Cormorant'. Sixteen visitors, ten crew and an excellent naturalist/guide, huge cabins with a balcony and first class food. Travel around the islands is now very strictly controlled and monitored but nothing detracts from the magic… Read Full Review
