  • Important Remarks:
  • Hotel Selection: The hotel selection depends on the category of hotel that you choose (Tour Options). Once you choose the hotel class of preference, we will specify to you which hotels (belonging to the class chosen) are available for the dates of your trip. Hotels are categorized in the following classes: Economic Class, Tourist Class, Tourist Superior Class and First Class. All the hotels have been carefully chosen by us after close inspection.
  • Restaurants:This also depends on the chosen hotel class, as not all hotels have restaurant services. Meals are served in the “meal of the day” style; however, if you choose First Class hotels you will have more variety and gourmet-style meals. By patronizing local restaurants we contribute to the local economy and support sustainable tourism.
  • Guides: Guides will accompany you throughout all excursions and visits. They will not go with you on the speedboats between islands. Guides are certified by the Galapagos National Park - if you feel that their guidance does not meet your expectations, feel free to leave a complaint at the National Park Direction to help improve the quality of service in the islands.

    Very good, enjoyable tour of the Galapagos Islands
    joannacrabtree
    , Aug 2019
    We recently went on this tour with Viator to the Galapagos Islands and we had a very good experience overall. Firstly, you get to see all three main islands on this tour and this means you really do see all the main animals on the islands and get a great feel of the culture. Eight days is enough to see all the main tourist sites without getting bored of doing the same thing. I really don't think you need a longer tour unless you are especially into birds, insects / marine life, or sports. The tour was mainly on Isabela island which is, by far, the best of the three islands. The amount on each one was appropriate. The tour guides on the whole were very good and knowledgeable, there were a couple that were obviously picked last minute / didn't have the knowledge but this only happened once on the trip. The organisation is very good and the hotels tended to know who you were and what time you were being picked up and going to each attraction. The tours always tended to have bathrooms, and explained what you need to bring in advance and had the right balance between explaining the science / siteseeing. There was also no pressure / begging / doing the American thing of "expecting" tips, you gave tips when you felt they deserved it (most of them we did tip) - on a lot of tours they basically pressure you at the end. That was not the case here. They don't pressure you to spend extra money unlike a lot of tours which get you to buy more drinks or go to certain shops. The reason it is a 4*, and not a 5* is for the following reasons: - This tour included all meals and they were, generally, the same day in day out. You tended to always have chicken / fish with rice and chips which is altogether nice, but you tended to crave a pizza or curry by day 4. I would recommend getting a tour with only breakfast and one other meal, because you WILL get bored of the food quickly and you will end up spending more, and Galapagos is an expensive place to eat out. - The exception to this rule was the last hotel on our trip, Hotel San Vicente which is owned by the tour operator who did this tour (called San Vicente) and has better staff, food, room and is in the best location of all the hotels. I think this tour should focus getting the other places to stay up to scratch, because the tour company do a magnificent job picking out the best place to stay, the first two places are a let down . - The internet everywhere sucked Overall, great tour though and we would recommend

    Dear Joanna Crabtree, First of all, we would like to thank you for this extensive feedback you have contribute to the site. Actually this review is extremely useful for other passengers to get an idea of what to expect on the tour. We always try to get the best land-tour guides for every single activity set in the itinerary. Most of the time we used to give some chances and opportunities to young guides to develop their faculties in guiding as well as their knowledge. We also appreciate the fact that you remark what we need to develop and get better. I promise to keep your feedback for our future plans while updating itineraries and offering services. That makes us even a better and reliable tour operator. Last but not least, it's important to say that the Internet (connection) in the whole islands is really poor so, that's why, no matter what hotel you are, you apparently will get kind of the same connection level. I thak you once more for your full review and we hope to see you again in Galapagos. Warmest Regards, NATURE GALAPAGOS & ECUADOR TEAM
