Reviews for Classic Galapagos Island hopping


review 20 Jan 2023

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

Meeting so many wonderful people and seeing so much of the Galapagos and the fantastic wildlife both on land and whilst traveling between and around the islands.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

WiFi is generally not fantastic around the islands but go with the flow and just accept it. Its nice to be off the grid sometimes. Take cash, whilst some places will take credit card the locals understandably prefer cash and many places will only take cash. There are ATM's on the bigger islands but it is definitely best to be prepared. Things are not excessively expensive.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

We made time to interact with as many locals as we were able. we respected the area and people who live there and this is reflected in how clean and tidy the Galapagos were. Every trip was taken with a national park guide who was able to answer questions not just on our trips but all aspects of the islands.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

Fantastic. It was so well organised by the Team. We were met punctually at every detination or for each tour and dropped back to our hotels after each tour. The hotels were well chosen. All were near the center of things or near to the sea. We received a message each day to remind us of timings etc of the next days activities and we felt that we were being well looked after and that there was always somebody to contact in case of changes etc. There was also plenty of spare time built into the schedule so we could spend time exploring or relaxing ourselves. We'd definitely travel with Responsible Travel again.
