Holiday review by Peter Leslie

Name: Peter Leslie
Date of trip: 22/03/2014
Number of people: 2
Country: Galapagos Islands

Overall level of Satisfaction

 
Tribes Overall: "Absolutely"
 
Tribes Service: "More info about Napo - no need to take boots or rainwear - all provided Similarly for galapagos only decent sandals needed and no need to bring own snorkels which we did If we had known flight returned via Guayaquil we needn't have returned to Quito for another day.  Warn people that Casona de la Ronda is very noisy Friday and Saturday nights and that a room to rear much quieter. The hotel and situation in old town was perfect though"
 
Guides: "Raul particulaly good in Quito Nature guides in Napo and Galapagos were excellent"
 
Social & Environmental Responsibility: "Particularly Napo. We do have concerns that visitor numbers must be having an impact in Galapagos we are very privileged to have visited."
