A truly amazing, trip-of-a-lifetime, expectations-exceeding experience. Two important aspects made it special for us. The first of course is the incredible venue - the Galapagos Islands are spectacularly untouched and the wildlife is unique, diverse and abundant. The second is the tour itself, which was very well planned, staffed and executed. Our guide Sebastian was wonderful, a great guy who... More

I never travel on tours, but after our Galapagos Unbound 10 day adventure with ROW, I might need to revise this position. My daughter and I joined 8 others on this tour, plus our leader Henry and numerous other park guides, boat captains, etc. From the start, Henry kept a watchful eye on every detail, with our safety, enjoyment, and...

Just got back from a fantastic 10 day trip to the Galapagos islands with 6 other couples and our guide Marco. The trip couldn't have been better- we saw and did so many amazing things in this beautiful place, from camping, snorkeling, kayaking, hiking and getting up close to all the wildlife in abundance here. Our accommodations and food were... More

If I experience a trip more wondrous than this then it will something so unimaginable that I'll be unable to review it. We selected the five day, four nights 'Darwin Footprints' package which took in Santa Cruz and Isabela. It was phenomenal. The islands are magical, the landscape mind blowing, the nature enchanting and Row Adventures...sensational. The service was beyond... More

My wife and I visited the islands with the tour company Lindblad Expeditions/National Geographic aboard the National Geographic Islander, a 48 passenger ship. The islands are amazing, and Lindblad made everything work perfectly. Days were spent hiking, snorkeling and sea kayaking, while nights were spent cruising to the next island and socializing in the lounge or outside on the decks.... More

There is a very good reason why this tour company receives such high marks..... they earn it! This is a top notch operation that pays attention to ALL the details. We experienced an incredible 10 day family trip to the enchanted Galápagos Islands. Our tour leader Sebastian Jurado is one of the most knowledgable and attentive guides I have ever... More

ROW offers a first-rate trip with guides who are reliable, smart, thorough, and efficient. Our main guide, Henry, provided just the right amount of structure to make us feel safe and confident with him, but he was also very flexible and accommodating whenever the situation allowed. Even though we were in a group, we felt like the trip was geared... More

When we decided to visit the Galapagos we looked at several trips that were boat based( Linblad, etc). ROW offered a different way to see the islands up close and personal! It was a very adventurous trip with 2 nights of camping by the beach with sea lions nearby, kayaking 3 times, snorkeling 5 times in amazing places, and hiking... More
