Holiday review by Mr. Terry Saul

Date of trip: 17/04/2019
Number of people: 4
Country: Galapagos Islands

Overall level of Satisfaction

Tribes Overall: "The wildlife, the accommodation and the boat all surpassed what we expected"
Tribes Service: "Great service once again and the Vamoos App is brilliant"
Guides: "The local knowledge of the guides was excellent - probably helped by the strict training and regulation."
Social & Environmental Responsibility: "The local people are clearly aware of environmental issues and it is refreshing to see such a serious approach to the environment"


La Casona de la Ronda
Great location and lovely atmosphere. Good food too.
Hotel Oro Verde
Great hotel and facilities. Staff service was impeccable.
Ideal for us. We wanted a small boat and this was perfect. The crew were brilliant and none of us could believe the excellent standard of the food from such a small kitchen.
IsaMar Hotel
Nice rooms and a good location. Strange with reception being over the road but not a problem.

Our Memories

"The wildlife made it. Snorkelling with Turtles, Penguins, Reef Sharks, Octopus, Hammer-head Sharks, Sealions and countless colourful fish was a dream."
