Tour provider doesn't promptly book activity
Mar 2019 • Solo
On 27-Feb-2019 for I booked a full day Bartolome Island & Sullivan Bay tour for 13-Mar-2019. I received a notification from BM Tours 11-Mar-2019 that they had to cancel my booking.

I went to a number of tour operators on Santa Cruz Island and they were unable to book me for a full day Bartolome Island tour. They all told me that ALL of the Bartolome Island land tours were booked.

Clearly BM Tours did NOT book my activity when I paid them, but waited until a few days beforehand to do so. And when they couldn't book the activity, they canceled my booking which necessarily ruined my vacation.

Amazing tour, but Overcharged by double on Trip Advisor
The full day Bartolome tour was amazing. The tour bus picked us up from the hotel and drove us to the other side of Santa Cruz Island which took an hour. We hopped on a beautiful yacht and were served a great breakfast to start the day. Hours later we arrived in Bartolome Island to hike the volcano with a tour guide who pointed out fascinating ecological and geographical information with much enthusiasm. We then snorkeled with the Galápagos penguins. The day was just amazing. Upon returning, I started talking to people on the boat. They all said that they paid $180 for the tour. I was in complete shock bc I had paid $328 (almost double what they paid for the exact same boat, lunch and tour). I could not understand why I paid double the cost of an average ticket, especially when Viator (Trip advisor) guaranteed the “low price” on their website, and I contacted Viator when I got home. Viator would not issue me a refund for the difference. I have used Viator many times in the past as I travel often, and I have never been overcharged by so much. This was very disappointing. Do not use Viator to purchase any tours from the galapagos. You can go to the island and get these tours from local tour agencies for much cheaper than any price they post. Do not believe the “low price guarantee”! That was just a slap in the face after paying double the cost for my Bartolome tour.
