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!

Definately a 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 to our lovely Galapagos guide at Baltra airport to fly back to the mainland. The wildlife highlights of the holiday were many, of course. But what was so special was how personal the service was from all the guides and drivers and everyone we met, which made it so far removed from a 'group tour' type holiday. Daniel King looked after us so well in Quito and was so knowledgeable and interesting to talk to, and Freddy Perez who took us down to El Monte with his uncle Louis was a delightful young man. And finally, I have to mention Tom and Mariella and our fabulous stay at El Monte! It is the most wonderful place. Many thanks again to you and all of the team. 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!!”

Thank you for arranging the best holiday of our lives!

“Thank you for arranging the best holiday of our lives! From start to finish this trip has been the most amazing experience ever! Ecuador was absolutely amazing. The Hotel del Parque is a luxurious oasis with excellent staff. Our adventure then moved on to the Beluga and the Tower Itinerary tour of the Galapagos Islands. The Beluga, crew and our guide Bernie, were all exceptional. I have never been so close to so many amazing creatures in my life. We saw everything! We snorkelled with White and Black Tip Reef Sharks, Green Back and Hawksbill Turtles, played with Sea Lions, swam with shoals and shoals of colourful fish, all shapes and sizes, not forgetting the Sea Horse at Los Tuneles, Isabella. On land we experienced wall to wall Sea Lions, males, females and with babies, Iguanas of all shapes, sizes and colours, lizards, wading birds, Flamingoes and of course the Giant Tortoises. In the air and land, birds, birds, birds. The Albatross, which I think was my favourite, displaying their mating ritual and nursing a baby was a massive highlight, Pelicans, Penquins, Red and Blue footed Boobies, Frigate Birds, Sheawaters, Storm Petrels, Owls, Tropic Birds which are so graceful and Hummingbirds and Caracara in Ecuador, the list is endless and mind blowing. Onward to Isabella via the most amazing plane ride we've ever taken. We had three amazing tours on Isabella, Sierra Negra Crater, Las Tintoreas and Los Tuneles each one surpassing the previous. Casa Marita was a lovely hotel, friendly, helpful and very comfortable. We can't thank you enough Rachel for all the help and advice you gave us planning this truly amazing and memorable trip of a lifetime. Thank you again, we wish you all well, you have an amazing company and talent.”

Really loved the cruise, the boat, the crew

“ Really loved the cruise, the boat, the crew ….. your recommendations for accommodation in Santa Cruz and Quito were also first class. We will certainly recommend Think Galapagos for anyone planning a trip to Ecuador & Galapagos. It was a holiday of a lifetime!”

Galaxy definatley stood out from the rest

“I had a truly wonderful time. The boat itself was pure luxury. Looking at other boats around the islands, Galaxy definitely stood out from the rest. The 4 day itinerary was perfect too. They managed to cram in so much, but still felt leisurely and relaxed. It felt like we were living in a nature documentary, seeing so many unusual and unique species, but also able to observe their natural behaviour. The staff were very friendly and accommodating, were great in offering vegetarian alternatives for me. “

All in all quite possibly the best holiday we have ever had

“A big thank you for organising our trip of a lifetime. It was everything I had hoped for and more. El Monte was amazing and the Beluga was fantastic. Nothing was too much trouble and the guides in particular were so enthusiastic and knowledgeable they really made our holiday. The snorkelling was like nothing I had ever experienced - to be so close to turtles, sharks, sea lions and even sunfish really was incredible. All in all quite possibly the best holiday we have ever had. I have been singing your praises non-stop since I got back to all my friends and colleagues”.

An excellent trip from first to last

" It was an excellent trip from first to last. The arrangements all worked smoothly, all the contacts and transfers went well, the overall standard of accommodation and food was superb. La Jimenita was a gem; rooms were comfortable, the food was first class and the environment is lovely. The Beagle was definitely a lifetime five-star experience. Wonderful boat, attentive staff supportive to those who needed a hand, the right mix of walks, snorkelling, kayaking, chill time. Great videos to watch on the wildlife of the Galapagos. Thank you very much indeed for organising this trip for us. Everyone in our party - British, Irish and American - loved the whole trip. We will be recommending your company (and The Beagle) to anyone who may be thinking of going to Ecuador."

Everything was absolutely wonderful

" Everything was absolutely wonderful. The team of people you use in Peru and Quito are all truly lovely, the hotels chosen for us were all very good and the information forwarded from yourself regarding the whole trip was brilliant. You were most patient with us, no matter how many times we came back to you with queries and even on the 11th hour, literally 24 hours before flying to the Galapagos, when I realised that my young son had changed his passport since booking, against all the odds (especially as it was over the Easter holiday weekend) you managed to sort that out for us without much ado. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending your services to anyone who may wish to enquire. Overall it has been the trip of a lifetime and one we will never forget. Thank you for making it work seamlessly. "

Cannot rate highly enough the service and attention we were given

“I cannot rate highly enough the service and attention we were given by Think Galápagos and the team they work with. I travelled with my husband and my 14 year old daughter. Our trip to the Napo wildlife centre in the Amazon was fantastic. Delfin was our guide and his knowledge and ability to spot wildlife was extremely impressive. The Galapagos was stunning and brilliant. The beluga yacht was lovely and comfortable. Our guide was Juan who has worked as a guide for over 30 years. He was extremely knowledgeable, as well as funny. The best moment of the whole 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. “

Our best holiday – and we travel a lot!

"Thanks for arranging our Ecuador and Galapagos trip. We absolutely loved it. Special thanks to our guide in Quito. We loved the Galapagos and Beagle - really great boat. Can’t speak highly enough of your service or the Galapagos. In fact we loved it so much I have described it as our best holiday - and we travel a lot! “
