It was just an amazing trip - it was just active enough where we were busy and having a great time - all the time. it was so informative, well planned, friendly and fun. An experience of a lifetime. travel group was really great and we all got along perfectly.
We had a wonderful, full trip to the Galapagos! Every day was a well planned adventure! We even had an island to ourselves to snorkel and picnic on the beach! Most of the rooms were spacious and clean and comfortable. Meals were delicious! Our guide even procured some fresh lobster from local fishermen one morning for dinner that evening after we had talked about lobster the day before!!
This has been my dream since I was 5 years old. I still can't believe that I actually experienced it. What a dream come true. I waited for 38 years to see it and it was worth the wait. For 10 days we never saw an unhappy person, smiles everywhere (if I lived there I would be happy too). Sitting at the window seat as we arrived I practically had to pinch myself to make sure this was real. My husband and I enjoyed wach second there. From the hotel to the day trips. When one of our day trips was cancelled due to a boat issue they quickly jumped right in rescheduled the day for us. Turns out that was as my husband puts it, "Best day ever!!!!" That day we swam with 30 sea lions!!. Unbelievable. One of our guides even took our camera and recorded the experience for us without us even asking. That will be a moment I will tell my grandchildren about. I found myself tearing up on our last cruise into port. Not wanting the experience to end. Thank you for a wonderful time.
Was very happy with the trip arrangements. As far as the trip itself, it was well planned. The guides and local staff were very knowledgeable and helpful. No complaints about accommodations. The cabin at Floreana was rather rustic, but that was to be expected on a rather remote island.
Kassandra was wonderful to deal with. She was always pleasant on the phone and answered all my questions in a timely manner. I was initially considering a specific itinerary and she pointed out that I might like a different one better. I took her advice and as time went on, I realized it how much it turned out to be the correct decision.
It was a great tour and I would recommend this to anyone who is planning to go to Galapagos in the future. The local guides and hotel staff took care of all our needs in a timely manner. It was a pleasure working with the staff and guides.
We like the roomy room and the cleanliness all around of the ship. Chocolates on the pillow, extra fresh clean water bottles almost daily, and excellent food! We enjoyed the Darwin Institute Guides who knew Latin names of animals and plants. -- very experienced and knowledgeable.. We especially liked the redone antique hotel Aliso. Food was great there and very accommodating.
The trip was much more than I ever thought it would be!!!
Galapagos on the Letty was a very good trip. Excellent food! Very good with enough variety and choices. So many of our fellow passengers had food restrictions but the crew handled this without any problems. We had an excellent time.
I would recommend this trip highly. Awesome for a group. No decisions to be made; well planned.
Our trip to Ecuador was amazing, and the Galapagos portion of it that we booked through Adventure Life was incredible. The Galapagos were unlike anywhere we've ever been, and it's unbelievable how close the animals get to the people! The guide and all of the staff on the Archipell were wonderful. We couldn't have asked for anything better.
