I will start by saying that Isabela Island is beautiful. The Sierra Negra volcano tour is amazing. However, this tour is the most disorganized mess that I have ever been a part of. Had we not been diligent and overly inquisitive, it might have turned out very badly. First, the

Response from Receptivo2019, Regional Product Analyst at Isabela Island Explorer 2 Days -1 Night
Responded 2 weeks ago
Hello, Thanks for your comment. We are very surprised about those details you explain in this review. We are agree about your perception of Isabela, it is definitely a beautiful island. It is important to consider we provide all the information at the moment of your booking, actually we arrange all the details you shared with us, but we are going to analyze the descriptions because what it could happen is they need to be more specific to avoid any confussion. We also have a 24 hours available phone line and you could use it if you need to contact us for any specific detail and apart of this and responding about our presence in Galapagos, we have our principal office in Guayaquil, but we have a complete staff working in the Galápagos, not only Isabela, which made me think about your comment because what it could happen is you refer to a wrong person and maybe they gave you a bad information. We understand the facts. We had more passengers in the same date and we always ask for a feedback and we did not receive any complaint. We respect each perception and we always receive it in the best way to evaluate constantly the services, but at the same time, we always take care about each booking and we always confirmed all the information. We hope you next time you came to The Galapagos could enjoy more activities and have a better time because for all our team your experience, emotions and memories are our principal objective. Kind regards
