Traveling in pandemic times can be challenging, but CNH Tours, a boutique Canadian company made our trip to the Galapagos magical. They helped us arrange for the PCR tests we needed to gain entry to the Galapagos, handles a lot of our taxi and booking issues and got us a great room on the Samba, a sailing and motor vessel with room for 14 passengers and a naturalist and crew of five. The price was less than half what it would normally be because they are struggling to get moving again after the pandemic. It’s the perfect trip if you like to see a lot of wildlife and enjoy activities like kayaking and snorkeling with sea lions and penguins and giant sea turtles. Food was great. Our guide Jimmy was the best. It is the trip of a lifetime.

Amazing experience! Traveled during the pandemic with zero health and safety issues or concerns. The company ensured everything went smoothly every step of the way. The planning and communication before, during and after the trip were flawless. I cannot stress enough how happy I am that I decided to move forward with this trip. So many animals/so few people. The excursions, the guides, the transfers, the food, and yes, the decontamination and sanitization processes amidst the pandemic... Everything and everyone was awesome. Nothing was cancelled or ruined. Do not be afraid. Do not hesitate. GO ON THIS TRIP OF A LIFETIME! You won't regret it. After this wonderful experience I will be working with this company to plan an Amazon trip in the future.

Dear Ashish, Thank you so much for having taking precious time to post your comments about your trip to Galapagos with us!! María told us about the great tailor-made itinerary proposed. We were delighted to offer our help being arranging 9 amazing days in Ecuador + Galapagos. We are conscious that, when an itinerary is customized, we have to put an extra effort so that all activities are planned like military timings, as those are managed differently than our regular plans. We appreciate you recommend us to your friends and all people in general. It's really recomforting reading this and we intend to keep on offering services with such great feedback from your side. Warmest Wishes NATURE GALAPAGOS & ECUADOR TEAM
