Galapagos Unbound

Incredible trip. Well led by ROW guide. Great small group of 11 clients. All permits, reservations, inter-island and intra-island transport was handled well.

The leadup to the trip was a bit of a mess with inaccurate and misleading information from the ROW representative in the US. However once we were on the islands the trip was excellent. The guide Edwin Perez was outstanding and worked very hard to keep everything running smoothly which was difficult due to weather issues. Saw a lot of... More

My husband and I rarely travel with a tour group. ROW Adventures did a good job organizing activities considering that park officials cancelled our first two nights of beach camping and all water activities for the first couple days of our trip. Our overall guide, Edwin Perez was excellent. The local Galapagos guides were OK; they should have all been... More

Everything about this trip was wonderful, even the bugs on the camping beach!! ROW did a great job on planning every detail. Our guide, Henry was knowledgable and personable. I don't know which part of the trip was best - campaign, snorkeling, kayaking, hiking, food, hotels - all were amazing. We went onto Peru after Galapagos Unbound with ROW and... More

Having traveled with ROW before on the Salmon River in Idaho, we knew they were the ones to trust with our visit to the Galapagos. We wanted to steer clear of the large cruises and do something a bit more adventurous. The itinerary crafted by ROW and the local staff they hired to guide us through every experience were absolutely... More

This was one of the best trips I have been on. Relaxing, yet full of adventure. Day after day of amazing moments - my favorites were walking among the land Tortoises and swimming with the sea turtles. So many opportunities to snorkel seeing new things every time. All the wildlife was up close and personal and made the whole trip... More

This was a most enjoyable adventure trip. The logistics (and there was much that needed to be planned) worked like a clock. The guide Andres was one of the best compared to the other travel we have done. The accommodations and the food were very good as well. ROW guides attention to detail and specific needs and wishes of everyone... More

Every aspect of this trip was well thought out and wonderful. Our guide, Andres, was extremely attentive and professional. The kayaking was amazing. Lots of exercise but Kicker Rock was wonderful to see from the ocean. Snorkeling near Kicker Rock was amazing. Climbing Sierra Negra was challenging but such an accomplishment. The views were wonderful. Snorkeling was a lot of... More

Full of wonderful experiences. Just enough physical challenge to make it really interesting (kayaking several hours, snorkeling off shore, hiking 10 miles, etc.). Had no idea what to expect but I loved everything from the hospitality, to food, to the abundance of animals seen.
