ROW provides a unique itinerary that includes a combination of camping on the Island of San Cristobal and luxurious accommodations on Isabela and Santa Cruz with activities ranging from snorkeling and sea kayaking to hiking and touring tortoise preserves. Our Guide Andres Trujillo was phenomenal and his efforts were complimented by local guides on each Island. This journey managed to... More

I loved being able to sleep on the island, and wake up to both the southern cross and all the familar northern stars. The guides were amazing, the trip leader fearless but- having to wait for hrs between islands was the only down side. If I were on a boat, however, I would have not only paid more but did... More

ROW was a great way to see the Galapagos. Everything was perfect from where we stayed, ate and saw. Our guide Sebasastian was great, knowledgeable and funny.

The itinerary was full but there was just the right amount of down time. ROW uses local guides on each island. I think this drives up the price but it's worth it because you get a good sense of what life is like for them. The food was fresh and delicious. Our guide was very friendly and knowledgeable.

Very well organized, after tour dive trip was messed up, but ROW refunded monies paid with no issues. Would highly recommend ROW to travel to Ecuador. Will travel with them again

This was my 3rd trip with ROW. All have been outstanding. This Galapagos trip is unique because it is land-based (includes 2 nights of beach camping) and is limited to about 12 people. We visited 3 islands while staying in 2 hotels (we camped on the third island). The 2 hotels were comfortable, clean and seemed to be the most... More

What an incredible trip this was. Visiting the Galapagos Islands had been on my “wish list” for decades and it turned out this was absolutely the way to experience the Islands. Our group was small (11 travelers plus our guide Sebastian), allowing us to travel easily to remote areas of the three Islands we visited. Sebastian proved to be a... More

My wife and I joined 9 others sheparded by a marvelous Ecuadorian guide completely fluent in English who took us around the islands. We had a much more intimate experience than I think we'd have had from a boat, and were helping the local economy, and leaving a small footprint. It was one of the best vacations we have ever...

This was a spectacular trip that enabled me to see everything I had dreamed of seeing. I had traveled with ROW adventures before and knew it to be a quality firm with local partners that can truly give an inside perspective for the trip. I particularly enjoyed the kayak excursions and nights camping. That is where we independently saw our... More
