An astounding experience! A must see. Would recommend without reservation to anyone interested! The entire trip was well executed with plenty of self guide time and exceedingly knowledge guides. The guide and hotel staff didn't miss a beat, not a flaw in the organization of anything over the entire stay. The hotel staff in both San Cristobal and Isabela could not have been more accommodating and welcoming. A must do trip!!!
The tour was relatively well organized the people were incredibly warm and helpful. The itinerary did lay out the program day to day, but at times it did not have enough specifics about times and exertion level, and we were only briefed the night before, so it was difficult to make changes in the tour. Our day in Santa Cruz could've been much better spent. We walked for miles for really nothing, and then the guide left us on the way back and we got lost finding our hotel. LOVED the snorkeling at Kicker Rock and our time on Isabela island was very enjoyable most of us did not do the hike up to the volcano crater....it was too hot would make much more sense to leave for that hike about 5-6 AM so that the hike back is not during the heat of the day. The Galapagos themselves are AMAZING! the wildlife is spectacular and really all around you!
