The Best Galapagos Photo Tour on Offer, for Intimate, Unhurried Encounters with Wildlife
"I enjoyed everything about this trip. It truly was a perfect trip and I have never said that before. I have traveled extensively around the world with some very good companies, but this trip totally exceeded my expectations. I was not prepared for the beauty of the environment, the variety of wildlife I saw, the caliber of the guides and how much I learned about geology, biology, oceanography and of course, photography. Which brings me to compliment Zapa. He, too, is exceptional, not only as a guide, but as a photography instructor. He easily switched from giving advice to the more professional guests, then to me, who was more of a novice. He never seemed exasperated with having to repeat the same information over and over. His knowledge of the inner workings of the wide variety of cameras which were present on this trip was impressive. I was enormously pleased with the progressive improvement in the quality of my photographs as the trip went on. I will savor my memories on this trip for the rest of my life. On the other hand, I anticipate making new ones as I continue to travel with Nat Hab."
"Our guides were excellent. Roberto is a walking resource manual to the Galapagos. He was able to share his knowledge in a clear manner. Always knew how to get us to just the right spot for photography. In the interpretive center his additional commentary made the history of the area come alive. Food was incredible. Guides were great. Wildlife viewing beyond compare."
"Roberto was very knowledgeable. An excellent naturalist. Zapa was very energetic and always willing to assist with any photography questions. They both went out of their way to make us all feel welcomed. I enjoyed being with a group of photographers. We were able to get started early and stay at various locations for extended periods of time to ensure great photos. These items are very important to photographers."
“These guides were wonderful. This trip was a dream come true and they made it even better. Their knowledge and assistance was the icing on the cake. With their presence we all learned a great deal about the habits, the creatures, the geography and the people of the Galapagos. On one snorkel trip one of them grabbed my arm to point me in the direction of a penguin. The penguin ended up right in front of my face!! I can’t say enough about how wonderful the guides and crew on the Letty were. Thank you all for this incredible experience.”
“Our guides' knowledge of the island’s flora, fauna and geology was incredible and they were able to communicate in a way to be understood. Zapa’s understanding of photography and the camera taught us many new techniques.”
“The naturalists were really knowledgeable, professional and more than personable. Our photographer guide, Zapa, was terrific. He was able to help everyone, no matter what type of camera and he was truly fun to be with. He felt like a friend by the end of the trip. As always, we were very impressed with all of our guides. There were lots interesting things to see and lots of time to take photos!”
"Walking in the footsteps of Darwin is definitely among the highlights of the trip. The photography opportunities were incredible. I would be hard pressed to identify anything we didn't like about this trip."
“My wife and I just returned from your Galapagos Photo Tour and I wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed it. The trip was non-stop GREAT in every way, and I know I got some really great pictures. Our guides were very professional and really paid attention to the needs of the photographers. In short, the trip was really excellent in every respect, start to finish.”
“Our guides were excellent on multiple levels – they made us feel like family. I loved the dingy rides around the islands, snorkeling AND being one of only two groups on every island we visited. I loved feeling like we were the only ones there…it definitely brought another level of pleasure and stillness to the trip.”
“The accommodations were excellent. All of our guides were first rate. I loved all of the wildlife and the snorkeling was excellent! I loved every minute! We knew we would see lots, but the guides also taught us so much and we saw so much of the country. The landscape was also very interesting! We liked that the trip was organized to maximize what we saw in the time we had.”
