    I have visited Vietnam, Bolivia, Australia and Iceland with Intrepid and all were good tours.I was disappointed that this tour did not have more varied wildlife and I was not able to do a couple of activities like the volcano tour which I enquired about in advance as far as other options, and there was too much time spent snorkelling.The guide was not experienced and often left us too much "free time" which meant he got a break and we had to fend for ourselves.

    Best trip ever! In the Galapagos you will see giant tortoises wandering on volcanoes and sea lions swimming along side you. It was nice to do a land based trip where you stay on the islands instead of on the boat. We got to see how locals live. Te tour was well organized with lots of included activities but plenty of free time to explore on my own.

    Great trip. Constant activities, good hotels and excellent marine and land based animal viewing. Volcano hike very worthwhile to do the full 6 hours - If it's raining gum boots for the first hour.

    The guide was fantastic and although some of the acomodation was basic it was adequate, and didn't go to the galapagos to sit in my room!! We didn't stop and the title active galapagos is very apt, all included meals are least two courses, more often three - even breakfast. Would recommend!!!

      Where we stay ensures we keep our travellers firmly entrenched in a region’s people and culture, and provides them with unique local experiences that benefits the community too. In most locations we stay in simple tourist-class hotels ( 2-3 stars), plus on many trips you'll also get to experience a night with a local family on a homestay or something a little different like a Bedouin camp in the Sahara."
