I would like to tell you about the best tour of my life.
Everything on the tour was perfect. the crew did an amazing job taking care of all our needs and the dive guides were excellent. they have a lot of knowledge about the Galapagos and very experienced divers.
The tour was on a boat named humbolt explorer. it included everything, from transportation from and to the airport up to a chef on board and great meals.
About the dives: the equipment was excellent. Not a single problem through all the dives, and we saw all the animals we intended. Many fish in all shapes and sizes. five different types of
sharks and specially the huge whale shark we swam with!!!! and there were also dolphins and killer whales swimming around.
In the end, i would like to thank ISHAI ESHED from MontaniTours, Montanita, Ecuador. I was able to make my dream come true thanks to him. he helped me alot and for an entire month he made calls and mails and everything he could to get me and my friend on that Cruz. furthermore, Ishai also has information and attractions about Montanita and its surroundings.

I am planning a honeymoon vacation to the Galapagos & Peru for 16 days. Escaped to Latin America has provided a wonderful planning experience. Really 1st class treatment. I really appreciated Sam's amazing communications, setting up a customized travel plan to fit our desired locations, timing, length of trip, and budget !! They beat out 5 other tour agencies with their amazing package. I have traveled throughout the World. These guys will take care of you. Now, dealing with Mark on the trip details, he is super responsive & handles everything I ask of him right away ! I really am astounded by his level of service also... guess they only hire the best at this company. Our tour begins in December, I will report all trip details when we return, but I now have a very high level of confidence. Thanks Sam & Mark !!

The Galapagos have many animals ,i.e., giant tortoises, penguins, iguanas, blue footed boobies, and more. The natural enviorments is being preserved by limiting the amount of visitors to the islands. The Darwin center is part of the preservation effort and are trying to increase the number of giant tortoises. Great job.
