    A memorable trip I will never forget
    My husband and I returned safely on Saturday from our Ecuador and Galapagos trip. Even if everyday life is slowly sinking in again, we are still very much inspired by the great, unique experiences we were able to gather on the islands. We would like to express our gratitude to you and your team for the organization and the really smooth running of our trip. Everything has always worked exactly as described in the itinerary (except when we did not work as we should and arrived late due to a stalled clock for our transfer to Isabela …). The plan was perfect to keep track of all the activities and had always answers for any ambiguity and questions, so nothing could go wrong. That has always given us a dose of extra security. And if there were any organizational or other questions, Karin and also especially Rebekka was always available with answers and offer a helping hand! Especially on the islands, the time feels so precious, that you want to devote yourself fully to the diverse experiences … Conclusion: our expectations were exceeded and we will recommend Galapagos PRO for sure. Thanks and best regards, Lindy T

    Great Trip
    Thanks to Mrs. Beate Zwermann's great experience in the Galapagos and her very professional team at “Galapagos PRO” in Frankfurt, they have put together a very varied and very informative family trip for us. The cooperation with the accommodations and the supervisors on site worked smoothly. We were picked up and escorted punctually at the meeting points. We experienced a wonderful and extremely interesting trip, which we would absolutely do again. Our children left with a deeper understanding of nature and greater love for wildlife. Their favorite was the baby sea lions! Thank you again to the “Galapagos PRO” team!

    It was just fantastic!
    That is why we would like to thank you. Starting with Nadine for the excellent advice and compilation of the journey… and the patience she had with my demands …. then with Alex, who picked up our backpack from the airport and brought it to our hotel, although it was KLM’s fault….. Thanks also for the delicious chocolate…. then a big thank you to Karin with the valuable tips on Santa Cruz and Rebekka on Isabella, with whom we have laughed a lot. They gave us really great help with everything and valuable tips…. Thanks for the Blue-footed boobies and my first snorkeling experience. And last but not least: to Beate, who started the great travel company. I have now fulfilled my dream that I had for soooo long. We will definitely recommend this tour and booking with your company! Best regards, Marianne

    Excellently planned Galapagos-experience
    I would like to thank you very much for this unique experience and give you some feedback about my journey and experiences. The travel planning including excursions, transfers and the hotels was really excellent. All staff on site were very good. 1. The hotel in Quito with staff you can absolutely recommend. 8/10 2. The Casa Iguana Mar y Sol San Cristobal was great. The couple who own the hotel, as‌ ‌well‌ ‌as‌ ‌your‌ ‌local‌ ‌staff‌ ‌member‌ ‌(Karin‌ ‌Kugele),/10 3. Now for my highlight: The Isabela Beach House, Location, Room, Breakfast: 10/10! The best I have ever experienced on any holiday! I would particularly like to emphasize my appreciation for your local employee Rebekka Franke. I have never had a travel agent who was so friendly, welcoming and competent. Always available and with a good tip in store. Congratulations on having such a colleague. Great to see that there are still people who live and love their profession! Thanks again for this unique experience and that you have put together my dream trip within the short time and made it possible. Kind regards, Leonhard

    Incredible divesity and family-friendly atmosphere
    Thanks to the Galapagos Pro team for this amazing tour! The incredible diversity of the islands and their fauna and flora offers a family-friendly atmosphere! The encounters with the animals were the absolute highlight, and not only for my 10-year-old son! We are so grateful for this amazing memory.

    Amazing Tour and very well organized
    We just came back from the Galapagos and we would like to thank Galapagos PRO for their amazing planning. We met some of their friendly staff in Santa Cruz Island. Our favorite spots were the Charles Darwin breeding station, Bartolome Island (where we got to see penguins!) and snorkeling at Las Grietas. Some animals we saw during our trip includes sea lions, sea turtles, iguanas, and the beautiful blue-footed boobies. There are sea lions on almost every island and they are just too cute. The hotel we stayed in Santa Cruz was very clean and comfortable as well. Karin from Galapagos PRO also gave us excellent restaurant recommendations for dining out such as Descanso del Guia which has an amazing sea view and is located above the supermarket. Our favorite cafe in Santa Cruz Island is 1835 Coffee Lab for relaxing and enjoying some homemade cakes after our tours. We truly recommend this tour and hope to visit the Galapagos Islands again soon! Thank you Galapagos PRO for the detailed and personalized tour once again. - George D.
