Holiday review by Mrs. Felicity Lovell

Name: Mrs. Felicity Lovell

Date of trip: 25/05/2019

Number of people: 2

It’s very difficult to focus on one moment because we found it all to be amazing. The two parts were so different, the rainforest is like another world, Sacha Lodge is brilliantly located and how do you single out one thing when you are seeing hummingbirds, monkeys and birds of paradise in their natural environments. To have a troop of squirrel monkeys crossing over your heads whilst in a canoe was breath taking. The Galapagos what a unique area, to travel around on a tall ship which every now and then would hoist the sails and sail on the wind was a special experience and to see the special wildlife, being protected and their numbers promoted was great. Santiago what a finish to the holiday, the abundance of birds, seals and iguanas was fantastic.

Tribes Overall:

Lived up and beyond our expectations

Tribes Service:

Paul compiled a great schedule, it all linked smoothly. We were supplied with detailed information and all queries were answered promptly and precisely. He was spot on with what we wanted. A fantastic job.

Guides:

All very knowledgeable and enthusiastic

Social & Environmental Responsibility:

We obviously contributed to the local economy. Tribe is environmentally aware. We did everything in our power to comply with all requests to protect the ares we visited.
Obviously our flights are damaging to the environment and we hope that our approach at home and on holiday helps off set this as much as possible
