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 vacation 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.

Vacation of a lifetime!

…an absolutely wonderful, amazing, brilliant (etc.!) vacation we had, and to thank you for everything which came together to make the vacation 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 vacation in Ecuador and the Galapagos. Definitely a vacation of a lifetime!

The best time ever and every day exceeded our expectations

Thank you for the most amazing trip. We had just the best time ever and every day exceeded our expectations. The organisation you put into every aspect of the journey, the guides we had to help us along the way and the experiences we enjoyed were just perfect. We felt we had been away for ages after the 2 weeks because we had done so much and had such a variety of activities and also learned so much about the culture in Ecuador and the amazing islands of the Galapagos. It just could not have been better. Your help and guidance from start to finish was superb and we felt entirely confident from start to finish that our journey would run smoothly and safely. Thank you so much for everything you did.

You were a pleasure to deal with from the very beginning

A massive thank you for the wonderful experience we had in the Galapagos and the Amazon. The guides were all fantastic and really helpful. We have told everyone to book with you, you were a pleasure to deal with from the very beginning, and nothing was a bother.

I cannot recommend this company enough!

I cannot recommend this company enough! Right from my first contact with Rachel, it was very clear that this is more than just a business for her - she loves Galapagos and gets genuine pleasure from sharing that passion with others and ensuring they have the best possible experience. She spent time getting to know what I was looking for and provided a range of options (tailor made for me) before advising me which she thought was best. And as it turned out she was absolutely right!  Our trip was amazing start to finish. Everything went smoothly from when we stepped off the plane in Ecuador till we left 2 weeks later. We were looked after from start to finish by a collection of friendly, professional and knowledgable drivers and guides. We had nothing to sort out or worry about ourselves other than having a great time. And because of Rachel's service, attitude and excellent communication leading up to the trip, I could look forward to the trip confident that that would be the case!  Our experience on the Cachalote Explorer far exceeded expectations - it may look a little old but the accommodation was modern, clean and far more luxurious than I was expecting, the crew were brilliant and the food was varied, plentiful and delicious! If this is to be a once in a lifetime trip for you, do yourself a massive favour and book it through this company to make sure it's as good as it can be!

From the minute we left home, and until we returned, everything ran like clockwork

Our trip was AMAZING!!  From the minute we left home, and until we returned, everything ran like clockwork. It was such a treat being met by guides and assisted at the airports! We were incredibly lucky with Tip Top II, the crew and guide all got on brilliantly, the food was excellent and the boat very comfortable

Galapagos has been on our bucket list and turned out better than we imagined

What an outstanding trip! It was a long time coming but was certainly worth the wait. Thank you again for everything you did for our trip, thanks for persevering with us over the 3 years and for making it a very special trip. Galapagos has been on Peter’s bucket list for many years and it turned out to be more than he could have imagined.
