An excellent holiday that exceeded my expectations. The Naturetrek group was extremely good and we all hit it off! Darwin Alvarez was a brilliant guide, superlatives are not enough. He was easy going, very knowledgeable and patient, a credit to the Galapagos national park service.
This was an excellent holiday. Ive been to many places in the world and this holiday is up with my best holidays ever. You have a brilliant team of guide. Zavier is excellent at organisation/people management/clarity of instructions/putting peoples minds at rest, and enthusiasm for all aspects of wildlife in his country. Juans knowledge and interest in the travellers was excellent. His knowledge of plants was phenomenal. Both never tired of responding to our enthusiasm and questions and went out of their way to make our visit memorable. Our guide a the Sacha lodge extension, Elicio, had a passion for the forest world and kept bringing us little creatures to see before returning them to their habitat. Well done!
Thank you for the opportunity to experience the Galapagos islands and the rainforest. I can not praise the leader enough. I can not imagine a more knowledgeable guide. His approach to the group was professional but also friendly; a difficult compromise to achieve. All the drivers were very good and the flights were excellent. The organisation of the holiday was outstanding
