Holiday review by Ms. Susan Spearman

Date of trip: 12/10/2018
Number of people: 4
Country: Galapagos Islands

Overall level of Satisfaction

Tribes Overall: "Surpassed our expectations!"
Tribes Service: "Paul Cook was most helpful in helping us plan this trip to the Galapagos Islands."
Guides: "Jaime was extremely knowledgeable about all aspects of the islands and very helpful and friendly."
Social & Environmental Responsibility: "On this trip (our second) we interacted with wildlife that we hadn't come across before eg; penguins, flightless cormorants."


Treasure of the Galapagos
Food was great as were the staff. My husband and I were allocated Cabin 1 which was a huge suite ( I did wonder if it was intended for our friends whose 60th birthdays were being celebrated with this holiday and we offered to swop but they had already unpacked in their cabin which was large and were happy to stay. The only thing I would mention is it was quite rough sometimes and extremely noisy whenever the anchor was raised or lowered.

Our Memories

"My special experience was snorkelling and being surrounded by diving penguins,cormorants,pelicans,boobies,sea lions, turtles,shark and even a large manta ray!!! Absolute magic."
