Snorkelling with sea lions

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.
