Number of people: 2
Country: Galapagos Islands

Overall level of Satisfaction

Tribes Overall: "this was my trip of a life time and it was absolutely wonderful. It was so good I'm already looking at other itineraries in the area. It was well organised and all the arrangements worked smoothly apart from a slight problem with our flight out of Cusco I would have no hesitation in booking a holiday through tribes again."
Tribes Service: "very smooth, all our queries answered comprehensively and quickly. Thank you , Rory"
Guides: "all were helpful, knowledgeable and punctual. they added greatly to our enjoyment of the holiday. Juan, our guide on the beluga,was absolutely outstanding "
Social & Environmental Responsibility: "I was pleased that as far as we could tell a lot was being done to protect the environment in all the areas we visited and I felt as that the kind of trip we were doing actively helped to promote that"

Our Memories

"too many to list. feeding the hummingbirds at Bellavista and all the animals and birds in the Galapagos, especially watching an albatross lay an egg on Espanola, 15 rays swimming slowly together in black turtle bay and being in the middle of a feeding frenzy of hundreds of seabirds one evening as we returned in our pangas but it was all magical"
