Country: Galapagos Islands

Overall level of Satisfaction

 
Tribes Overall: "It surpassed our expectations - we had an excellent time."
 
Tribes Service: "Excellent"
 
Guides: "Both guides (Juan Tapia on the Galapagos and Marco on the mainland) were fantastic - very knowledgeable and enthusiastic."
 
Social & Environmental Responsibility: "Excellent"

Accommodation

 
La Casona de la Ronda
We stayed in two different rooms (at the beginning and end of our holiday) and both were lovely. The location is great for exploring the old town and the staff were very friendly
 
Cachalote
Great crew who really looked after us. Very good vegetarian food.
 
Hacienda Hato Verde
They provided some wonderful vegetarian evening meals ( and breakfasts) and were very welcoming. The hacienda is beautifully restored

Our Memories
