Think Galapagos Newsletter Spring 2015

Dear Friends,

Think GalapagosWe hope this finds you all well. All is going well here at Think Galapagos; we are loving our new office in the countryside and with Spring in full swing we have been amazed by the hoards of beautiful birds that are coming to our feeders, which Santiago keeps topped up!

We have some great new trips planned for the coming year. If you fancy escaping the UK in November to experience some of the highlights of Ecuador's wildlife and culture we still have a few spaces left on Santiago's 'Ultimate Ecuador' trip that he will be leading in November 2015. Hot off the press is a Guatemala trip for next February, as well as a brand new trip to Salamanca and repeat of our highly successful Seville trip scheduled for March 2016, all fully escorted by Santiago. Details of all these trips are below. If you would like us to send you more details of any of the trips, or to reserve a place just get in touch.

Also, we now have a listing on Trip Advisor, so if anyone would like to leave us a review that would be wonderful. Details on how to do it are below. We love to hear from all our guests always, so do keep in touch!

Muchos saludos

Rachel & Santiago

Santiago's Ultimate Ecuador Trip

Santiago's Ulimate Ecuador TripFor this special trip to his native Ecuador, Santiago has put together an itinerary which includes some of the very best culture, wildlife and scenery that Ecuador has to offer.   Travelling down the Avenue of Volcanoes, riding the Devils Nose Train journey, visiting the beautiful city of Cuenca and then onto the little visited, but wonderful Poducarpus National Park, very much an undiscovered gem.

The trip will take place from the 21 Nov - 5 Dec 2015

Guatemala February 2016

<empty>Guatemala February 2016Mayan ruins, lush rainforests, a vibrant indigenous culture, friendly people, spectacular scenery and  beautiful bird filled forests, we absolutely love Guatemala. This trip, which is scheduled to coincide with Lenten Celebrations and allow you to escape the cold grey days of February, will be the fourth trip Santiago has led to Guatemala. Some of our guests that have travelled on this trip say they love it even more than Galapagos!

The trip will run from 20 Feb - 4 March 2016

Trip Advisor... finally we have a listing!

It has taken us a while to get a listing, as we don't really fall into any categories for Trip Advisor, but finally they have accepted us as an 'attraction in Santa Cruz Island' not ideal, but even the few brief mentions of us on discussion forums in Trip Advisor have generated huge numbers of enquiries for us.

If you have a moment, it would be wonderful if you could leave us a review on there.
