Holiday review by Roger and Elizabeth Richardson

Date of trip: 25/03/2017
Number of people: 2
Country: Galapagos Islands

Overall level of Satisfaction

Tribes Overall: "We had very high expectations before going on the holiday and these were not only met but exceeded. It was a strikingly memorable experience and it is difficult to think how the holiday could have been improved upon."
Tribes Service: "Rory was very helpful and provided all the information we needed."
Guides: "The guides were excellent and made a huge contribution to our appreciation of the places visited. In particular Juan in the Galapagos Island and Estaban in Quito were extremely lively and informative guides."
Social & Environmental Responsibility: "In particular we felt that the visit to the Napo Wildlife Centre helped make a contribution to the Rainforest being regarded as an economic asset through tourism rather than being used for oil drilling or other destructive exploitation. "


Grand Hotel
Very good service and everything you would expect from a large hotel.
Napo Wildlife Centre
A great luxury camp in a wonderful location. A bit expensive to buy any extras.
Patio Andaluz
A lovely hotel which was full of character and in a very central position in the old town
Fantastic service from a very attentive crew. The food was excellent. It has everything you need for a memorable trip.
