    The tour was incredible! We saw a vast array of wildlife from giant tortoises in the highlands to playful sea lions, mating sea turtles and Hammerhead sharks. We also saw a vast number of birds. The blue footed boobies were my favourites! Great people... Show more

    Jonny was fab, so knowledgeable and found us everything we wanted to see (apart from mating tortoises sadly, but he could hardly help this!) The boat was very tired and we weren’t aware that there was the option to have a top deck cabin as we would... Show more

    Jonathan is fantastic. However I was in a lower cabin, we could all smell the diesel fumes, the majority of us got sick off of them. If you did not have the air conditioning blasted, we would wake up with bugs in your bed. If you do you not eat red... Show more

    It was well-organised and the trip was fantastic. The itinerary was superb, the boat excellent and the crew sweet, efficient and very professional. The only real way to see the Galapagos:-).
