Overall, we were very happy with the experience. The hotels were very good and the staff there exptremely helpful. We suggest that more detail should be shared with the individual guides who did not know what was happening the following day or what times we would be picked up. Also, there was repitition in the activities.

This was an excellent way to see the Galapagos when you are short on time and/or money. The tours were outstanding. We got to see everything we wanted to see and more than we expected! The people were all helpful and kind. The accomadations were very basic, but clean, friendly and served a hot breakfast. The only disappointment was the lack of communication. We often did not know where we were supposed to be or when we were supposed to be there. We almost missed our Bahia tour because we were waiting in the hotel for someone to come get us and we were apparently supposed to have gone to the docks on our own, though no one told us the name if the boat or where to be. We also had requested English speaking guides and that was often not the case. Luckily my son and I both speak enough Spanish that we were able to communicate with and understand the guides. Overall a wonderful experience! Just make sure if you go to verify the details of the events for the next day including time of the tours and if a guide will pick you up or if you need to get there on your own.
