Trip review
Ecuador

loved their trip to Ecuador

The destination was beautiful & breathtaking. Our tour guides were knowledgeable, nice and very attentive. Even though we spent a short time in The Galápagos, our experience included everything I requested. The snorkeling was amazing, we saw lots & lots of exotic fish, a few sea lions, sting ray and other wonderful coral dwelling sea life. The giant tortoises were beautiful and a sight to behold. I have so many wonderful memories and experiences from this trip that I will never forget. Thank you Sofia!

Best parts:
1. The boat ride on second day to Bartolomé Island to snorkel. 2. The boat “*********” was beautiful! It was luxurious, the crew was friendly, professional and attentive. The cook/food was amazing. The captain was awesome. There were 5 couples /pairs on the boat and that was the perfect amount. The boat, the boat ride, the food on the boat by far were one of the best and most enjoyable parts of our trip. 3. The snorkeling was awesome & giant tortoises on the ranch were amazing, those were the two things we most wanted to experience during our visit. 4. The tour guides provided (Ricardo, Fabricio & Jose)were all so wonderful, we felt very safe with them. Each of them were very nice, extremely knowledgeable of the Islands and history. They made this experience very fun and memorable. We felt that we were being very well taken care of by our tour guides. The transfers to buses, boats & taxi’s was seamless. All we had to do was show up pay the fare...everything was pre-arranged, it was great! 5. I enjoyed my flight experience with ********r, I want to fly with them again on my next visit to The Galápagos.
Worst parts:
The only part I did not like was bathroom in our hotel room(it was not modern/updated, it felt old/moist & you could t flush toilet paper—not sure if that is all of Galápagos, the room was modest and otherwise comfortable with the exception of the bathroom).... BUT Our trip was amazing and a perfect otherwise. I should have requested a 4-5 star accommodation rather than 3-star. However, Sofia put together an amazing package with everything I asked for, we were over-the-moon pleased with everything else. The experience was wonderful. I would ABSOLUTELY, POSITIVELY book through Sofia again on my next Galápagos trip.
