Holiday review by Mrs. Linda Cushing

Date of trip: 09/11/2018
Number of people: 2
Country: Galapagos Islands

Overall level of Satisfaction

Tribes Overall: "I had researched our destination and together with Tribes an itinerary was formed which turned out to be just what we wanted .The whole holiday was fabulous- a real adventure as we had never been to S America before. "
Tribes Service: "As we called into your office it was good to meet the team at the very beginning of our adventure. Your advice was excellent and our consultant Rory was super as he had lived in Ecuador . His knowledge helped us make the final deciscion"
Guides: "All the guides were well informed on animals ,birds , geography history. We had Dianna and an indigenous guide at Napo who were really fabulous -good knowledge and so helpful. In the Galapagos we had David Paez who was so interesting ,well informed and funny which added to all our experiences. In Quito and surrounding area we had Carlos for a day and then Raoull . I would say they went above and beyond for us and we enjoyed their company. Our driver was Paulo and was very careful as the roads in Quito are so very busy and we always felt safe ."
Social & Environmental Responsibility: "The holiday was very beneficial as we learnt so much from the guides on the history and geography of Ecuador and the Galapagos. The wildlife is very special and that the government is handling the national parks so well. Very eco friendly an Ecuador is a very clean country."
