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.

Larry and Gillian are coming to the end of their month of travelling with Andean Trails in Patagonia. We put together a tour designed to take them off-the-beaten-track – read the first instalment in their blog – covering Santiago and Aysen and remote border crossings. Once in Argentina, Gillian and Larry trekked to the base of Fitzroy and Cerro Torre, and took a day tour to Perito Moreno. They then set off for Torres del Paine on a self-guided trek. Their tour has ended with a few days in Ushuaia and a flight out from Buenos Aires. Check their progress below …
