    The tour was very good. The guide was excellent. Unfortunately, the service at intrepid and TourRadar before the tour was very bad. It is completely inappropriate to ask a question and wait for a week for the answer. There is no way to communicate by... Show more

    I enjoyed the experience of visiting the Galapagos Islands with a group. It was my first experience with a group tour. Genesis our guide was excellent and her local knowledge added a lot to the tour. Her pleasant personality helped to make the tour a... Show more

    Thanks so much for your feedback James. We're so glad you had a fantastic time (hiking to a volcano sounds amazing) and will pass on your feedback about the change of beach location. We'd hate for anyone's trip to end on a not-so-perfect note.

    Our tour was great but we seemed to be the only people on an 8 day tour in the middle of everyone else’s 1 day tour. That groups flight was delayed so our first day started later than expected & they all seemed to have more information than we got.

    A great itinerary, it was fast paced and allowed me to see and visit lots of places in a short period of time. Our guide Cesar was fantastic, so passionate and knowledgable.
