Testimonials “We had a fantastic trip to South America! It more than met my best expectations.

Felipe was a tremendous guide. He made our trip to the Galapagos exciting, challenging, fun, and also safe. He helped to make the entire group function well as a team, making sure to be inclusive and considerate on everything. Sometimes that can be a challenge in a group with wide backgrounds and abilities. But he also interacted with us one-on-one which made the trip also more personable. I found all of the accommodations and meals to be excellent, as well. I would recommend your agency to anyone making a similar trip and will be mentioning it to my usual travel agent, who has not worked with you in the past….

…Thank you again, Carolina, for helping me to set this up. Everything worked like clockwork, from the airport arrival to transportation to accommodations to meals and to the fantastic wildlife experience of the Galapagos. I will remember this experience vividly for a long time”.

Warmest regards,
