Also, check our blogs on avoiding seasickness, a typical day in Galapagos, itinerary advice and and choosing between a cruise or hotel.
The Galapagos certainly met our expectations in terms of wildlife. Particular highlights were probably snorkelling with sea lions, swimming with green turtles, and being surrounded by hundreds of marine iguanas. The food on the boat exceeded our expectations and it was nice to have table service rather than a buffet for the evening meal. The guides were extremely knowledgeable. Organisation was very smooth indeed and all the transfers went perfectly.
There is nothing I would have planned differently about the trip. Even the weather was perfect!

We had a great time in Quito and the Galapagos, thanks. Everything went even better than expected – we really liked the friendly hotel, and couldn’t fault anything on the Mary Anne. We also appreciated the unexpected extras – the free transfers to the airport to and from the Galapagos, and payment of the tax. I have already recommended you to a friend!

The Galapagos is probably a once in a lifetime trip so there won't be a "next time", but there is nothing I would have planned differently about the trip. Even the weather was perfect and certainly met our expectations in terms of wildlife! Particular highlights were probably snorkelling with sea lions, swimming with green turtles, and being surrounded by hundreds of marine iguanas. I'm glad we opted for Itinerary B as it was certainly worth going to Isabela and Fernandina. The Flamingo was the perfect boat for us and with 10 adults and 10 mostly teenage children it was exactly the right mix of company for my daughter and I.
The food on the boat exceeded our expectations and it was nice to have table service rather than a buffet for the evening meal. The guides were extremely knowledgeable. Organisation was very smooth indeed and all the transfers went perfectly.
We also enjoyed our trip to the Highlands prior to the cruise. Both Haciendas Jimenita were lovely with very welcoming staff and great character. It was nice to have the same driver, Fausto, for all the transfers during the trip.

How do I successfully achieve high altitude acclimatisation? This is the question that anyone travelling to the high altitude Andean areas of Peru, Ecuador, Bolivia, Chile, Argentina or Colombia should be asking themselves. Successful acclimatisation will make a huge difference to your visit. It will mean you have a much safer and more enjoyable experience, whether trekking or climbing high Andean peaks. Over the past 25 years I have been up many 5,000 m plus peaks and trekked many fabulous routes in the Andes. I have suffered altitude headaches, lethargy, loss of appetite and certainly lack of breath when trying …
