Natural Habitat Adventures

Classic Galapagos: The Natural Habitat Experience

Traveler Testimonials

C. Prosser
"There was nothing I could say we didn't enjoy - the trip exceeded our expectations from the moment we were met at the airport and just got better from there. For us, the highlight was seeing a creature we just simply didn't expect to see - a Blue Whale. But really, the way we were looked after the whole time and the care put into our experience by our guides and crew was probably what made the trip. The nature was always going to be there, but they changed how we experienced it."

E. Wallen
"The Galapagos is an absolute treasure. I loved how our activities started early in the morning. We often never saw another soul. We would leave an island just as the heat of the day was really kicking in and other tour groups were just arriving. I kind of felt sorry for the other groups. By the time they had arrived, many of the animals had retreated to the shade or the water where they could no longer be seen."

J. Coon

"The experience was magical. We were also fortunate to be in a group with good 'group chemistry'. I am so impressed with the whole operation. Everything was truly first class. The service on the ship, the attention to detail and the great attitude of everybody involved, regardless of their tasks. It was an incredible experience. I believe one of a lifetime. It was made all the way more magical by your crew and that means everybody. I have only praise for your attention to detail, superb service and accommodations have already told my friends there is no other tour operator to go with. Just you. Superb."

A. Thomas
"The guides, staff and crew were the best, truly experts in their field! I loved that although you knew that there were other tourists in the islands, you did not see them except way off in the distance. Nothing like a standard cruise!"

J. Efferman
"Our Galapagos Island's trip was in celebration of our 25th wedding anniversary, and we wanted it to be very special. It was that and more! It is one of the best trips we've taken in 25 years of travel and we've been in over 25 countries. We were pampered from start to finish. Our guide was informative and fun as was the crew. The islands were wonderful! Loved every minute!"

R. Krailler
“I have decided ... Natural Habitat Adventures is my preferred tour operator and the place I will go to first from now on for booking an adventure trip. Even though I was a single, female traveler, I was never made to feel odd about traveling alone. The Natural Habitat Adventure Guides are incredible and are excellent ambassadors. This is only the second Nat Hab trip I have taken but it seems as if you pay special attention to getting the very best guides possible. I cannot say enough good things about Roberto and Veronica. As most of the walks I took were led by Roberto I have more exposure to his knowledge and I simply could not believe the extent to which he understood, and was able to explain, the vulcanology, botany, biology, and natural and human history of the Galapagos - and being able to gain these kinds of understanding are one of the fundamental reasons for taking a trip of this nature. THIS WAS THE BEST TRIP OF MY LIFE - IT WAS EVEN BETTER THAN THE AFRICAN SAFARI I TOOK 10 YEARS AGO. I never, ever thought it would be possible to have a better, more enriching, life affirming wildlife adventure to surpass my experience in Africa ... I was sooooooo wrong ..... and I'm glad I was. I will be recomending this trip to everyone I meet."

T. Ricker
“This trip far exceeded my expectations, and my expectations were set pretty high. Being surrounded by such unspeakable beauty and wonder, with others who are committed to seeing that it remains long after we’ve gone, is incomparable.”

J. Ehrhart
“Every aspect of the trip was handled flawlessly, professionally, and in a first class manner. I am so happy we chose Natural Habitat!”

C. Galantuomini
"I enjoyed everything. I tend to have high expectations and this trip exceeded those by far. I have wanted to visit the Galapagos for years and this was an incredible experience. The variety of animals and the fact that you can get so close was fantastic. It was terrific to have 2 guides, and both were impressive. To have that much enthusiasm and customer service and patience and warmth after leading tours over many years is impressive. I can't say a negative thing. I was incredibly scared to snorkel but really wanted to try it and with their support and guidance I deep water snorkeled - twice!! Their knowledge is expansive and they communicated easily. Yes, and their patience is great. You could tell they really enjoy what they do and love their country and the animals. That made the trip much more personal and attentive to detail."

L. Austrian
“Roberto was without a doubt, the finest Expedition Leader I have ever encountered. His knowledge, energy, enthusiasm, patience and interest were unbounded. Santiago was meticulous and accommodating – every transfer was flawless and his arrangements and advice were perfect."

S. Hoover
"This is our first completely guided vacation. Loved so much about it. Still can't thank you enough for making a bucket list dream become reality in a very first class way."

S. Rernick
“I can’t say enough about all of the guides. All were knowledgeable, enthusiastic, personable – but perhaps most contagious was their love for their country and their passion for sharing it. They made this trip – I can’t imagine what it would have been like without their gracious hospitality and extraordinary knowledge. They are great!!!"
