Seeing all the wildlife, especially in the Galápagos Islands. I loved the snorkelling with sealions, penguins, sea turtles and marine iguanas. We were frequently the only people who were in each place/landing, which made it very special. The transfers were well organised and fairly easy.
Very enjoyable overall. Slightly marred by the unrest in Quito, which was obviously beyond anyone’s control.
The Galapagos cruise was very special, but the Napo river wildlife centre was also very good.
Very helpful. Advice was good and all options discussed.
All very knowledgeable and interesting.
The guide on the cruise was good, but his English could have been better.
Social & Environmental Responsibility:
The lack of plastic rubbish was noticeable.
The napo river trip included s visit to the women of the local people. This was interesting but overlong. Could have been shortened considerably.
The places you stayed
Didn’t see much of it as we had to move out of the city due to the protests.
Beautiful setting. Very peaceful
Lovely boat and crew. Lots of wildlife to see.
I felt that $50 wet suit hire was expensive. Snorkelling was an amazing part of the trip, but it was virtually impossible without a wet suit due to the water temperature. This should have been included.
Food was adequate and plentiful.
This was ok, and I understand the need for a night in Guayaquil, but there was very little to see.
