Hello Veronica, and thank you for following up. I am delighted to give feedback!

Kylee and I had an amazing trip and it was put together very well for us, thank you!

The airport transfers worked out perfectly and we had a nice tour of the Charles Darwin center.

Hotel Ikala was simply fantastic! We loved the room and the staff was very nice and helpful. I would absolutely recommend this hotel!

For the boat tours we had Anita helping us each day and she was very nice. The staff on the Altamar was also excellent!

Each island offered different vegetation and animals, and the snorkeling was amazing with clear blue waters on 2 of the 3 days (one day was rainy and windy).

Bartolome was our favorite island. Santa Fe was our last day and it was the best day of snorkeling. We saw some small sharks and actually swam with 3 sea lions!

Garrapatero Beach was very pretty and the Lava Tunnel was very interesting; we had never seen anything like it!

We ended with lunch at the tortoise farm and then got back early so Kylee and I could venture off to Tortuga Bay.

The town of Puerto Ayora is so very nice! Very easy to walk around and very safe as well.

So many restaurants to choose from and we tried a different one each night.

Overall this was quite the adventurous trip and I would highly recommend GalapagosIslands.com to my friends and family.

Thank you for all of your help to make this an amazing trip for me and Kylee!
