Holiday review by Mrs Elizabeth Taylor

Date of trip: 04/08/2018
Number of people: 2
Country: Galapagos Islands

Overall level of Satisfaction

Tribes Overall: "Perfect balance of activities and arrangements worked perfectly"
Tribes Service: "Very efficient and speedy considering we booked at the last minute"
Guides: "Without exception guides were knowledgeable, helpful and committed to welcoming people to Ecuador and showing them the wonders of their country"
Social & Environmental Responsibility: "There seemed to be a strong commitment in all the places we stayed to protect the environment and benefit local people"


Patio Andaluz
Beautiful courtyards and building, helpful staff, spacious room
Mary Anne
Outstanding in all areas - food, crew (delightful), facilities. Cabins more spacious than expected (a bit damp, but it is a boat after all!).

Our Memories

"Observing birds and monkeys from an observation platform in the Amazon. Being surrounded by giant otters in a canoe. Feeding hummingbirds in the Cloudforest and having them perch on my hand! Watching Andean male cock of the rocks displaying. Swimming with turtles and sealions in the Galagapos. Watching manta rays turn somersaults next to the ship. Staying on the Mary Anne - it was an amazing experience in itself. Too many special moments to mention them all really....................."
