“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 of of their wildlife and the raw beauty of the Western islands where we chose to go, and where we snorkeled with Galapagos penguins flying along an underwater sea cliff like small blue rockets.
I would have loved to see more of Fernandina and climb one of Isabella's volcanos, but sadly none of this is available to regular tourists.
Neither is visiting the Galapagos cheap. Since, for most people, it's going to be a one-off indulgence I'd recommend going for something as luxurious as the 'Cormorant' where living on board is an entirely pleasurable part of the whole trip.
So back to Think Galapagos. This was effortless and stress-free travel at its best, all we had to do was book our flights and turn up at the airport.
