      Our trip to Galapagos was outstanding! Juan Pablo took great care in choosing amazing restaurants for our meals, helping us choose excursions that we would enjoy and selecting hotels that were very comfortable, and in great locations. He was very attentive to our needs and queries everyday. We were also very impressed with all his support team on the ground who were always on time, helpful and friendly. We loved the island and would love to return one day!

      What an incredible and unforgettable experience! Smart Galapagos really went above and beyond my expectations. I can’t praise the team, especially Juan, enough for how well organised my 8 days on the islands were. Everything from transportation, accommodation, activities and meal recommendations was seamless from start to finish. They truly made my trip thoroughly enjoyable and completely hassle free. They are available constantly to answer any questions and stay in touch for the entirety of the trip to ensure everything is up to standard and you are enjoying yourself. Juan knows Galápagos like the back of his hand and always had fantastic recommendations, even for an extra day that I stayed. I’m grateful to have had such a positive experience and highly recommend choosing Smart Galapagos as your provider for travelling to the islands.
