The crew and staff were generous, kind, and attentive. Accommodations were comfortable and quiet. But the best part of the trip was the incredible wealth of knowledge our guide shared as we visited the magical and fascinating islands of the Galapagos.

The opportunity to camp on the beach with blue herons and sea lions was magical. As was the kayaking, snorkeling, and hiking. It couldn't have been better.

This was a great trip. I did as a graduation trip with my son. We had a fantastic time. Active, but not stressful. The cure if cynicism regarding lack of concern for the environment is getting you down. These people care!
