Holiday review by Mrs. Felicity Roe

Date of trip: 01/02/2020
Number of people: 2
Country: Ecuador

Overall level of Satisfaction

Tribes Overall: "Yes totally"
Tribes Service: "Paul was great. Maybe he could have told us more obviously that we needed 100 dollars each in cash to enter the Galapagos, & quite a lot more for tips."
Guides: "Estaeban v. Knowledgeable around Quito Milton v. Good & patient Juan very knowledgeable in Galapagos"
Social & Environmental Responsibility: "We went to village community in centre of rain forest all amazing even a computer for each child"


Napo Wildlife Centre
Lovely staff, beautiful lodge on the water’s edge, very good food, lots of little snacks on excertions
La Casona de la Ronda
Lovely hotel with old world charm, great service.
We loved the boat, full of character. The engine was a little noisy at night especially for those in cabin 8. The food was very good lots of vegetables, we would have liked to have had more fish, but all the fruit & veg was delicious. The staff were all extremely helpful.

Our Memories

"Being paddled down the Nappo tributary & arriving into the lake some 2 hours later. Beautiful little lodges to stay in, best off all mosquitos do not like the “black water” in the lake! Galapagos being able to snorkel before breakfast. Lovely staff on the Beluga always ready to help you out of the Panga. Swimming with sea lions & penguins was amazing."
