Galapagos, In Darwin's Footsteps 2016

What an amazing experience!!

5
I have been lucky enough to go on quite a few super holidays over the years but this one is definitely one of the best!! The wildlife was amazing and made me feel privileged to share their homeland. The trip was also so well organised and our guide was brilliant. Every day was a different highlight of the holiday; being so close to the wildlife who had no fear of humans, the snorkelling, the boat trips, the trek, the walk to the sulphur fumerole, the wild camping, the accommodation, the food, everything was better than I was expecting.

What a holiday!

5
Everything and more than expected! This holiday did not disappoint as there was so much to see and do right from the time we landed on San Cristobal. A few minutes out of our hotel and you are walking among and around the wild life. Not that it is wild, so easy to observe and so plentiful. It was the same in the water, lots of fish and friendly sea lions. This continued on the whole trip. The accommodation is comfortable, not luxurious and it is good to stay in locally owned hotels and eat in local restaurants.

Unforgettable trip

5
Without a doubt one of the best holidays ever. It was my dream to go to the Galapagos so I had very high expectations. The reality exceeded them! It was amazing to see all the animals in their natural habitat and see how well they are protected. It was also a rare and fascinating opportunity to observe how the volcanic islands were formed.

In Darwin's Footsteps- what Darwin missed

5
This was a bit of a pilmigrage for me. Working in environmental policy, the theory of evolution informs my work. And I relate to Darwin's seasickness and loved his diary of his voyages. So what is it that drawn missed? In all his theories, treatises, diaries etc, what he did not tell us was how much fun it is to snorkel with sea lions! My natural selection is swimming with sea lions. Life is better with sea lions.

This was an amazing holiday - varied itinerary filled with lots of wonderful experiences. I had never been on a trekking and wildlife holiday before, but thanks to the experience and knowledge of the tour leader (and the friendliness of the group) I had a fantastic time.

GALAPAGOS: IN DARWIN'S FOOTSTEPS

5
Brilliant trip. Met expectations and more. Good to sleep on land but have the opportunity to snorkel most days - except on the trek! Great variety of camping and some very good hotels and hospitality. Good fresh food. You will not starve! Quito is a good city to explore at the beginning and end of the trip.

GALAPAGOS: IN DARWIN'S FOOTSTEPS

This was such a brilliant experience.  An amazing land-based trip full of wildlife encounters, many opportunities for snorkeling and lots of walking.  The only downside is that some of the Galapagos islands are being developed for tourism and this is changing the environment in a negative way.  If you're thinking of going, don't wait too long!
