“The Galapagos Trip was the MOST AMAZING TRIP we have ever experienced. From sleeping on the boat, to swimming with sea lions, we loved it!!! The whole thing blew our minds. The guides, Gustavo and Josy, were fantastic! They were incredible with the kids, so knowledgeable, patient, funny, etc. I can't say enough good things about them. This was a trip of a lifetime and we are so thankful we got to experience it!!!"
“Small group sizes, incredibly knowledgeable guides and luxury service: Every detail was taken care of. We were left to freely enjoy Ecuador and its Enchanted Isles, the animals and our family.”
"The trip went beyond our wildest expectations. Josy and Santiago were exceptional! They presented information in the most interesting and enthusiastic way. And after years of serving as guides in the Galapagos they were just as enthusiastic about the marvelous things we encountered as we were! And they were so much fun to be around! You just couldn't do better!! The level of activities was perfect for the youngest in our group (twins ten years old who swam like the sea lions) to Mike and me, the oldest. The snorkeling gear was perfect -- no leaky googles to contend with, the right sizes for us all. And the activities? Phenomenal! What a treasure, and what a remarkable thing Ecuador has accomplished in preserving and managing the Galapagos. We were delighted with the balance of snorkeling and hiking! The Letty was comfortable from the moment we climbed aboard. Hacienda Cusin was charming! As was the hotel you so kindly let us use at the end of our trip, during the long wait for our departure flight. Great food, and a variety that ensured we all had what we liked. A lovely mix of familiar and Ecuadorian dishes. We loved it all. But I guess we loved most the miracle of the wildlife on the Galapagos -- the boobies and frigates, the sea lions and flamingos, the SHARKS and the iguanas. And to think, we could reach out and touch them!!! If it weren't for the six foot rule! Thank you all for making this perfect trip possible."
"Both guides were totally amazing. The combination of their knowledge of the islands (both flora and fauna) and their genuine concern for both the participants as well as the islands was great. They took the time to answer any and all questions in a thoughtful manner. I was surprised at the amount of history I was able to recite (learned all from Gustavo) when going over our pictures with friends. The guides are what made this a truly fantastic trip."
"The guides, the snorkeling, the wildlife...it was truly wonderful. We loved the night of camping on Santa Cruz. Visiting the equator was great. Roberto is wonderful!! You truly have the best guide in the Galapagos. Josy needs to be part of your full time staff! The kids loved her! We miss them both! Truly you are blessed to have Roberto and Josy as guides...I hope all your guides are as great as they are!"
"I have been planning to take my family to the Galapagos for years, and I was so excited when the time came to go. Through all the special things you do, Nat Hab made this trip, far and away, the best family travel experience we have ever had!"
"What a way to spend a family vacation? It was incredible, and the small ship and the extra guides made all the difference in making this not just another trip, but the most wonderful family travel experience we could have imagined."
“I can’t say enough great things about Roberto! I feel we really lucked out to have him. He was an expert on everything, and he obviously loves his job. His enthusiasm was infectious. Josy and Roberto both were wonderful with the children. The two of them were the ideal team!”
“Amazing – my wife and I and our 11 year-old granddaughter could not have been more pleased, better served, and well guided than by Roberto and Veronica. Both were obviously at the top of their profession in both knowledge and social skills, but each with different personalities in perfectly complementary ways. They were flexible, attune, and always engaged with the entire spectrum of ages (8-75+) and abilities. This trip went beyond expectations, everyday was better than the last (until we had to leave).”
“I enjoyed the scenery everywhere we went. It was so nice to be up close and personal. The hike on the volcano was especially awesome. My husband and children also loved the snorkeling!”
