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.

ROW was fantastic. They made our trip to Galapagos a unique and beautiful experience. ROW is the only tour operator still allowed to camp on the Galapagos - and the two nights we spent on San Cristobal island were exceptional. We also loved the snorkeling around Kicker Rock, the volcano hike on Isabel Island, and the day spent around the... More

Trip of a lifetime. Satisfied the dreams of my family since my sons were young boys. ROW is a much more interactive experience than some of the other outfitters

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.
