This tour was very organized and everything happened in a well-timed manner. It catered to everyone's adventurous tastes such as snorkeling and hiking. which left so many memorable experiences. It was nice visiting the smaller towns and getting to meet the locals on land rather than spending so much time on the boat. There were no bumps in the road and I look forward to booking with G Adventures again in the near future. Thanks to Tim and his crew for all of their hard work!

Overall, this was one of the best tours I have ever taken. Each day was packed with a variety of different activities that had us exploring the Galapagos and learning about the area, while being physically active and having fun. The tour was extremely well organized, but allowed for flexibility in changes that occurred. Our tour leader, Tim, was extremely knowledgeable, professional and energetic. His passion for the Galapagos Islands made this an incredible adventure and one that I would highly recommend to anyone visiting the Galapagos Islands.

WOW! What a phenomenal experience! Being able to explore the Galapagos Islands through the eyes of the locals and spending time on four of the islands was exactly what I wanted to do. Everyday was packed with activities from snorkeling to hiking to bike riding to boogie boarding which was perfect for me. The wildlife sightings were unbelievable and incredible--these memories be cherished forever. Thanks to the guides & fellow travelers for a wonderful time!

What a week - there´s nothing that the Galapagos could have given that we didn't see. Our guide Pablo was the best. He knew the islands like the back of his hand and his enthusiasm was infectious! Couldn't have wished for anything more. The support staff were great, and always attentive. Would recommend this to anyone! We didn't want to leave.

Enjoyed the small "group". Got to know all members well. Loved variety of 4 islands and personal and professional input by guides, drivers, and boat skippers. All local people made trip much more interesting and meaningful. Emphasis on environmental protection and balance a true plus. Lots of knowledge gained about South American history with Flora and Fauna. Great balance with activities and observations.

The Galapagos tour was a fascinating experience with masses of interesting zoological, botanical and geological detail. We kept busy with extensive physical activities; we didn't have much time on our hands. Hospitality and catering were good.
