So many!!. It was a privilege to be so close to all the wildlife and observe their normal lives. Extra special was seeing the waved albatross courting, which I thought I'd be too early in the year to see and then an adult feeding a chick

Tribes Overall:

Overall a fantastic holiday which did exceed expectations. The wildlife and landscapes were amazing. The climate and ambience were very relaxing and it's now difficult to return to organising myself.

Guides:

The transfer guides were efficient, knowledgeable and resolved problems.
David at Napo was fine but not the official bird guide, but his brother.
Bayron on the Beluga had poor communication skills, but when asked was knowledgeable about all aspects of the Galapagos.

My cabin was large,clean and comfortable. The food was plentiful and tasty. However sitting only with my guide at mealtimes was a little strained due to language difficulties. I would have preferred to join with another group for meals.

Galapagos Islands

The crew were excellent, always friendly and helpful, especially Abel and Pedro. The panga drivers were very skilled in maneuvering the pangas in all conditions safely.The food was varied and good.
My cabin was large and comfortable , especially as no one else needed to share with me.
The days and activities were well planned except for changeover days
