Trip review
The Galapagos Islands

loved their trip to The Galapagos Islands

I have always been fascinated with the Galapagos, so when my husband explained he would not be able to travel with me for his business reasons, I decided on this trip. I did not researched Evaneos at all, but I am very happy with this choice. Emma, my agent, has been very responsive to every question I had. She planned a beautiful trip for me because it was extremely well-planned and organized. The staff at the hotels were so very nice.

Best parts:
The Galapagos themselves are indescribably fascinating and beautiful. Things I liked most: 1. Extremely-well organized trip. I got to see very much both in and out of the water. There was an appropriate amount of downtime after each outing. 2. The information pages provided to me upon my arrival gave suggestions of things to do on my free time. At San Cristobal Island, I visited every site suggested. 2. Hotels were not luxurious but they were clean and the staff were very nice and helpful. 3. I really enjoyed and appreciated the tour of Guayaquil at the end of my trip, instead of waiting around at the Guayaquil airport.
Worst parts:
1. I found the ocean water cold. Next time I would rent a full-size wetsuit. (this was just me. Other people who snorkeled found the water temp perfect. 2. I would have prefered less time alone, and more time with groups, or with the same group.
