We were searching for a reputable tour agency in the Galapagos and fortunately found Guiding Galapagos. Prior to our arrival, Stephanie was prompt with email answers to all of our many questions. On arrival, we easily found their office right near the waterfront. We also found the office staff, Geoconda (Yoko), Rosa and Ramiro to be very knowledgeable and pleasant. We ended out booking three trips with them: Pinzon Island and La Fe beach, Santa Fe Island and hidden beach and the 1/2 day bay tour. The Pinzon day trip was aboard their flagship vessel the Steffi. This is their boat and one of the very best day boats on the island. Guiding Galapagos pays attention to detail, provides excellent snorkeling gear and a superb lunch cooked aboard the vessel. Their guide, Yazmany, is one of the best on the islands. We had an awesome time! Our snorkeling experience lasted for two hours and we saw so many fish, and turtles. The land hike on La Fe was also excellent, with marine iguanas, sally lightfoot crabs and blue footed boobies. The other two trips (on different vessels) also went off without a hitch and were also enjoyable. There is a reason this company has over 400 five star ratings. In our opinion, they are the best on the island. You won't go wrong with Guiding Galapagos!

Pinzon was our second day tour scheduled after visiting Santa Fe. Like Santa Fe, the water is an amazing clear blue like a swimming pool as well as shallow. If you are able to purchase/bring a Go Pro, I captured clear and amazing videos of turtles, white tip sharks, sea lions, and abundant fish. The amount of fish seen in both Santa Fe and Pinzon was comparable to when I went scuba diving in Bonaire and Belize. We saved up and planned to do four days of boat tours, as many as we could fit in during our week stay in Puerto Ayora and it was so worth it. You won’t really see Galapagos and all the animals if you aren’t out on the water and in the water. Guiding Galapagos arranges a day where you’re in a small group, have a tour guide engaged in all activities, staff on the boat ensuring everyone is okay the entire day while keeping the boat clean and organized, serving better than expected lunch and beverages, use of new snorkeling equipment, and have you on a boat that has a toilet! We’re very fortunate to have connected to Guiding Galapagos because the service they provide is above and beyond. I easily experience motion sickness and had no problems at all wearing a scopolamine patch. Others visitors I encountered at the hotel or out to eat mentioned to me being hesitant about an hour or so boat ride back and forth to Pinzon (and Santa Fe). I’d say don’t be because the ride to visit the islands and all you’ll see is totally worth it!

We booked our itinerary with Stephanie Omar and their team as we were a family of 5. Hotel Angemeyer was suggested as were 3 day tours and one diving trip based on our limited time in Galapagos. All transfers and guides were included. They were beyond excellent, from direct airport and private transfers to eco guide Andy, to wet suit fittings, wildlife tours and excursions that included hiking, fishing and snorkeling! All 3 boats were fitted with life jackets, crew understood English, guides were bilingual, food on board ranges from simple snacks to well prepared lunches. Stephanie arranged tours to pinzon, La fe, bartolome, pinnacle rock, Santa Cruz tortoise and tortuga bay kayaking, all with guides! Omar loaned us a go pro for diving and snorkeling days, and stopped by our hotel each day to prep for the next day’s journey. It was a fantastic trip and we will definitely use them again!

You need to use Guiding Galapagos.com !! The owners have the best associates that meet you at every port, treat you like royalty as they transfer you from one boat to the next etc.! WE just got home and all of the day trips for snorkeling , animal watching.were sold out to the tourists who tried to cherry pick their trips and find cheap hotels etc.!! NOT with Stefanie and Yazmany!!!
They have the inside connections that will get you in the best hotels and the best excursions. Stephanie even walked us to the best restaurants, incredible fish entrees.
For example: they booked us with a great guide to Kicker Rock, off of San Cristobal.
Our scuba divers ( 5) saw a whole school of hammerhead sharks and the snorkelers( 5) hit home runs all day long with golden rays, seals that would swim with you & all around you . This is the best snorkeling and diving in the world. Go with the best for your trip of a lifetime!!

Nice schools of fish, cool young sea lions, some sharks and a large manta Ray 5m away from us, was very cool experience. My friend and my gf felt lazy after 30 min of snorkeling and the captain easily collected them and keep going, they were happy with the service :) The boat was crazy cool, it had a showers and a kitchen which enabled the sailor to cook us lunch:) this never happened on any other single day tour. Yazmarch was our tour guide and did a champion effort dragging 3 people during a snorkeling trip. He also took many videos and pictures under water and along the cruise which looked awesome.
Downside, we did not manage to catch a fish on the return, if we did, they promised they would make sushi of it.

This tour was the highlight of our visit to the Galapagos. Yasmany is both the most knowledgable and enthusiastic guide and host we meet on our various tours. It is clear he loves his job and is devoted to his clients hapiness.
The activities scheduled were all well thought out in advance and the amount of wildlife and proximity to it he was able to deliver was unrivaled. His crew are wonderful and the boat and equipment provided are of the highest quality and condition.
We hope to return soon and Yasmany and Guiding Galapagos Expeditions will be our first call to schedule all our tours.
Muchas Gracias.

I took many tours, this was the best tour on the Galapagos by far. I took a day tour on Yacht Steffi to Pinzon island and had the most memorable experience. I was comfortable onboard and the boat had an awesome second floor Bridge for relaxation. The captain navigated the boat into most exotic locations. We spent less time traveling and more time snorkeling, walking and hiking. I got to snorkel with sharks, sea lions, turtles and many other animals. The naturalist Gabriel was the best guide who showed the best places and explained the islands. The chef cooked a delicious meal. This was the best experience I’ve had on the galagos. Guiding Galapagos is the best tour company.

Yazmany was a great guide, stopping to show us all the marine life on the way.

We spent an incredible amount of time in the water and saw sea lions, turtles, 1 shark, dolphins on the way there. It was amazing.

All in all 10/10 experience. Especially after having gone on other tours (that were more expensive, were less guided/informational and spent way less time in the water).

This was the highlight of our trip. Spend the money. Spend the money. Spend the money. We noticed other tourist boats next to us but the quality our our boat way way way outshined the other boats. They were packed in there and the boat was not near as nice as ours. This boat has multiple levels with a chef preparing restaurant quality food with desert and snacks. My teenagers were so impressed to be on such a private experience. Our guide was a biologist from the island with a deep desire to make sure you feel safe, informed, and happy. They also took tons of underwater footage and Picts which were given to us free of charge.

Yazmany, Stephanie and team put together a fabulous four day Galapagos itinerary on very short notice that included land tours, snorkeling. local cuisine, etc. Attention to detail every step of the way. Highly recommend the snorkeling at Palmitas Bay and the Trapiche coffee farm Adriano is a TRIP!!!
If you are going to the Galapagos, use Guiding Galapagos....make the most of every minute of this trip of a lifetime,
