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. It was nice to have the same driver, Fausto, for all the transfers during the trip.
We also enjoyed our trip to the Highlands prior to the cruise. Both Hacienda Jimenita and Hacienda Pinsaqui were lovely with very welcoming staff and great character.
There is nothing I would have planned differently about the trip. Even the weather was perfect!

In Patagonia the main Panamerican highway becomes the carretera Austral (Austral Road) and …
