Trip review
The Galapagos Islands

Joy
Joy
loved their trip to The Galapagos Islands

Relied on Sofia to pick destinations, as we had never been to S.A. Machu Picchu, the Guest House and the guide were excellent. The Catamaran, crew and guide in Galápagos also first class. Same for Quito, especially Cuba Guest House and guide, Freddy. Apart from the overnight bus ride, my venture into the Amazon was enjoyable and educational, in small group of 8, with Ebi, the most experienced guide there.

Best parts:
Everything was well organized and stress free. Accommodations were just as requested - small, local establishments. Guides were all knowledgeable, and with good English. Sofia's planning, from our NYEve arrival in Peru to my departure, was first class. Thank you.
Worst parts:
The long, overnight bus ride, which was actually 2 separate buses, with long wait in between transfers. I was dreading the return trip, but it went much faster, on better buses, with hardly any waiting around during transfers. Not being able to get any of the ATM machines in Galápagos or Quito to give us cash. Got sols from machine in Cusco, which we spent while in Peru. We landed in Galápagos with $300 cash, assuming we could pay their entry costs using Visa. Instead had to use $280 cash. Even though guides in Galápagos and Quito took us to many machines we were unable to get more cash.
