Past Trips


We did the birdwatching experience and had a wonderful time in spite of the rain! The guide was exceptional at locating and identifying birds. He adjusted the activities to match the weather and opportunities to see wildlife. The accommodation was comfortable. The food was fantastic. The chef provided vegetarian meals that were delicious. This was a trip to remember.

We had a fantastic 8D/7N trip on the Tip Top V boat, eastern route. We found the trip through dealsgalapagos.com which are Ecuador Green Travel. Carlos Risueno did a fantastic job from start to finish booking our trip. His communication was spot on, everything was correct, his responses very prompt. I couldn’t fault him at all. The rep who met is in Quito airport was also spot on and helped us get through the 2 additional checks you need before boarding your flight to Galápagos. The trip itself was fantastic. The boat Tip Top V was definitely first class. The boat was modern and very clean, having been built in 2019. Our cabin was big enough and had everything we needed and a balcony. The food was brilliant; a huge selection for breakfast with something different every day. Every lunch and dinner consisted of 3 courses, all was tasty and well presented. Federico would keep trying to give you more. Then there were snacks after every morning and afternoon activity. I don’t think we had the same thing twice and definitely came away a couple of kilos heavier! The crew were very professional and everything was done with care and purpose. The whole boat ran like clockwork, everyone knew their role and couldn’t do enough for you. Our original guide unfortunately had a family emergency 2 hours into our trip but the company found a replacement before we’d started the first activity. Felipe did a great job, was informative and kept us on our toes with a busy schedule. And finally the activities; every day we did combinations of walking, kayaking, snorkelling and boat trips. The days started early at 6am but that just meant we packed more in and beat almost all the other groups to the islands. Everyday we were shattered and in bed by 9pm but that was just because we’d had a great day. I could write reams about the Galápagos itself but there isn’t space, it is truly a spectacular place and incredible how close you can get to unique wildlife. A personal highlight was swimming with sea-lions. All in all we couldn’t recommend Ecuador Green Travel and Tip Top V highly enough. If you’re undecided about which companies to go with you can’t go wrong with these.

We had a great experience on the day visiting an indigenous community, a local market, and of course hiking around the gorgeous Quilotoa. We had a great guide and there were about 8 people on our group. The reason I give 4 stars is because I don't think the preparation information was very good. For example, when booking the tour I was told we would be back in Quito at 4 or 5pm, so I had made plans for 7:30pm, but we got back at 7pm. When visiting the indigenous community, it would have been helpful to know that it's nice to bring gifts in advance, as we had little change for the market (and couldn't use $20). The difficulty of the hike also could have been mentioned. We did the climb (and enjoyed it), but if I'd know the downhill was so steep, I would have prepared my knees, which are not great and have been hurting since. I also didn't feel the service was overly friendly when booking.
