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.


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.
