Holiday review by Wendy Hartland

Name: Wendy Hartland
Date of trip: 23/03/2011
Number of people: 5
Country: Ecuador

Overall level of Satisfaction

 
Tribes Overall: "The Galapagos Islands were everything we hoped for, although we did feel we had too much time in Quito and experienced problems there."
 
Tribes Service: "Very knowledgeable consultants. Queries usually answered within 24 hours."
 
Guides: "All guides were very knowledgeable. We were recommended to go to one restaurant in Quito which potentially could have caused us problems if we hadn't realised in time that tourists are not particualrly welcome."
 
Social & Environmental Responsibility: "Excellent"

Accommodation

 
Eric and Letty
Food and staff on yacht were excellent. We were able to borrow snorkelling gear rather than have to hire it. We did have a very noisy cabin near to engine room and kitchen which made it difficult to sleep when sailing. We did think the level of tip they suggested was excessive due to the average local wage.
