5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2016

Absolutely worth it. The tour was very well organized and the boat ride was great. The islands itself are awesome and much better that the term Galapagos for the poor. I would go again. Highly recommended.

The people who organised the tour were quite rude and very disorganised.
