“I cannot fault the boat, the crew, or the food. I would not go on the big 100 passenger boats as we were first onto the beaches and in easy reach being smaller and closer inshore...The Galapagos is a one-off place where heaven meets the Earth...Your efficiency here and your guides in Quito are of such a high standard that I will not go anywhere without your organisation. Sorry, but you are stuck with us!”
Dr N L - Devon
“The trip to Ecuador and the Galapagos was excellent. The boat was very comfortable and well run and the jungle lodge was fascinating - we saw lots of wildlife, including a rainbow boa beneath our cabin. You were right to advise us to spend the whole week in the islands - any less would not have been long enough. We are certainly considering going to Peru with [our friends] next year, so shall be in touch.”
Mrs J N - Jersey
“Here is the report on the trip I have just finished, visiting Ecuador and the Galapagos... The [AMAZON RAINFOREST LODGE] is delightful. The rooms are very comfortable with a view over the lagoon spectacular and we woke to the sound of howler monkeys every morning...We spent a couple of nights at [THE CLOUD FOREST LODGE], an extraordinary place with the most amazing accommodation... The atmosphere was terrific and the staff wonderful, food excellent, the ambiance was great.
Mr Q B - Jersey
"Having never been on a tailor-made holiday we were extremely impressed with how smoothly our holiday went and it made our honeymoon much more enjoyable not to have to worry about the transfers. However, what impressed us most about your company was the helpfulness before we booked. Jonathan Morris was extremely helpful and suggested what we could afford on our budget and sent us a sample itinerary. . .This contrasted with a few other companies we contacted who told us that we could not afford a tailor-made Galapagos trip and would not even discuss it further. We had many emails and telephone conversations with Jonathan and were extremely impressed with the information and assistance he gave us."
Dr R M — Berkshire

"[WILDLIFE HIGHLIGHTS] Amazon - harpy eagle, brown howlers, golden backed tamarins, dusky tee-tee monkeys, caimans, giant anaconda & loads of fabulous birds. Galapagos - giant school of pilot whales, white-tip reef shark, underwater views of penguins, cormorants, iguana and seals. An excellent trip...marvellous contrast of scenery and wildlife between the different locations. Many thanks!"
Mrs E H - Cambridge.
"We had a fabulous holiday in the Galapagos and the Rainforest; in fact, I have handed your brochure on to a friend who is interested in a similar holiday. Very well organised and everything went smoothly except for the problems we had with the airlines which is not your company’s fault."
Mrs D N - Swindon
“Toucans & a tanager finch (v. rare) in the highlands. Scarlet macaws, howler monkeys and crested owl in the rainforest and a host of good things in the Galapagos - the turtles were a big hit, the waved albatross was v special. Also enjoyed the cormorants, the penguins & the noddies nesting...It was highly enjoyable. The high point was the panga rides. To see the birds & marine life up so close was unforgettable.”
