What travelers say about their tours to the Galápagos Islands

wildlife-viewing adventure
08/19/18 by 4th-time traveler Erica
This was the best wildlife adventure ever and the historical aspects were just as amazing. The Galapagos cruise was the best part. It was nonstop hiking, snorkeling, and exploring the untouched wild with an intimate small group.

Our tour guide Juan Carlos Rivera was by far the best tour director we have ever had on many of our trips. Galapagos Islands was absolutely magnificent. Ship accommodations, food and the crew were fantastic. Plenty of activities where you'll never get bored.
