Reviews

Hearing from our guests after they return from Galapagos is probably our favourite part of the job. Here are the reviews from previous guests, which you may find helpful to read. 

A truly amazing and most memorable trip!

Thanks again for all your help putting this trip together. It was a great combination of structured and unstructured activities. Not only were we excited about all the different places we got to see but we were also impressed by the quality of the guides. Everybody was on time, super friendly and helpful, and very knowledgeable. It felt very luxurious to never have to worry about how to get from A to B, figuring out where/how to buy tickets, etc. All in all, it was a truly amazing and most memorable trip! Thank you!!!!

Highly recommended

I cannot rate highly enough the service and attention we were given by Think Galápagos and the team they work with. Our trip to the Napo wildlife centre in the Amazon was fantastic. The Galapagos was stunning and brilliant. The best moment of the trip was playing and swimming in the sea with 9 sea lions. It was a moment I will treasure forever. We are a well-travelled family and this holiday is up there as one of the best. The whole thing was seamless. We were so well taken care of by every guide and driver we came into contact with. Rachel and the team at Think Galápagos are great at what they do. Highly recommended.

Simply fantastic!

It was simply fantastic, every single day was brilliant! All was superbly planned and happened as planned, the information received for all the different journeys was always accurate and all people involved were helpful and nice. The stay on the Beagle – well, I can’t say any more than that it was outstanding! Our guide (Xavier) was great, able to infect everyone with his enthusiasm and knowledge, so was the crew and the others on the boat. Napo Wildlife Centre was of course also amazing, not just the lodge itself and the stunning wildlife, but the whole experience. It has been a magical experience all round.

Holiday of a lifetime!

…an absolutely wonderful, amazing, brilliant (etc.!) holiday we had, and to thank you for everything which came together to make the holiday so perfect. The arrangements were flawless in every respect, with guides to meet and look after us from the moment we stepped off the airport in Quito, until we said goodbye. What was so special was how personal the service was from all the guides and drivers and everyone we met. I have already been, and will continue to recommend Think Galapagos to anyone and everyone who might even consider a holiday in Ecuador and the Galapagos. Definitely a holiday of a lifetime!

The best holiday we ever had

"The holiday to the Galapagos is possibly the best holiday we have ever had. Americo was truly outstanding, thank you for organising a truly memorable experience."

Memories for many years to come

“We had a marvellous holiday in Ecuador. Everything went smoothly flights, transfers etc. The venues you picked for us were all spot on. Our trip to the Amazon was very exciting and the Napo lodge was a beautiful place to stay. Our expeditions in the canoe were well led and organised in small groups which added to their value. The Galapagos islands lived up to their reputation as centres of excellence for wildlife , geology and history and we found the staff and guide on the Beluga to be excellent – nothing was seemingly too much trouble. Finally our trip to the Cloud Forest and stay at El Monte was very interesting. We saw many colourful birds and insects –all expertly introduced to us by our local guide George who was first rate. All in all it was a wonderful holiday and we would like to thank you very much for your friendly and efficient organisation. It will give us memories for many years to come.”

Truly the trip of a lifetime

“It was truly the trip of a lifetime. A number of people ask what the highlight was and we really can't pick one. It was all highlight. We cannot speak highly enough of just about every aspect of our time in Ecuador. Everything you arranged for us worked perfectly. Our Quito guide Fatima was a total delight, as were Luis in the Galapagos and Juan in the rainforest. We were delighted with the Cachalote. Our cabin was excellent, the crew so pleasant and attentive. And of course the place is spectacular. The Napo Lodge was beautiful and again the service was excellent. We have travelled quite a bit and this is the first time we have had a trip organised by someone else and we are glad that you were recommended to us. We could get used to it! We really hope we can go back to Ecuador sometime. Thank you so much. “

All arrangements worked perfectly

“ We had a fantastic trip and all the arrangements worked perfectly. We absolutely loved the Ocean Spray and the food they served on the yacht was amazing. We were very pleased with all the hotels/lodges that you recommended – it is so much more interesting to stay in small personally run accommodation rather than the large generic chain hotels. The Galapagos is certainly a unique and special place.”

Magnificent Holiday

“We had a wonderful trip all beautifully organised by you with friendly and professional guides in all the three locations. The hospitality, crew members, food, trips were wonderful and could not be faulted. I have recommended both your company and Maja. Once again thank you for the magnificent holiday.”

Every Day of our trip special

" We had a great trip to Galapagos. The whole experience was mind blowing, and it was so wonderful to see all the wildlife around the island. Maja our guide was great and made every day of our trip special. We were very well looked after and cannot find any faults with the itinerary or the organisation and I will never forget the whole journey."

Thanks for a trip of a lifetime

“Thanks for a trip of a lifetime ….All our connections worked, and the guys who picked us up were all first class. Both El Monte and Passion were great places from which to discover and enjoy everything about the forest and islands. Fernando was a brilliant guide, and from what others on board said, have spoilt us for future trips! And our guide who started our trip Santiago was equally knowledgable and engaging. I have been recommending you already!”

You’ve been fantastic five star service

"We had the most amazing trip! We have been home only a few days from our round the world trip and the Galapagos was definitely my favourite place! The Sea Star and its crew were outstanding. We felt millionaires on the very comfortable yacht! The crew were so friendly and helpful. The food was amazing! I really couldn't find any faults with this trip! Our naturalist guide was great, very knowledgeable and went the extra mile to make sure everyone saw animals we most wanted to. Including helping me to swim with the hammerhead sharks! We really enjoyed our night on the island and would recommend it to anyone doing a cruise. The whole experience of booking right through to coming home has been wonderful. I will highly recommend Think Galapagos to anyone planning a trip and hope that one day we might be able to travel with you again! You've been fantastic 5 star service!"

The whole trip could not have gone better

“We had a truly fantastic time and this was a unanimous verdict. The Beagle is a great vessel but it is made fantastic by the competence, friendliness, commitment and professionalism of the Captain and crew. The guide was Fabian Romero Davila and he too was exceptional and he got on really well with everyone. Thank you very much for all your help and advice over the last year or so, the whole trip could not have gone better.”
