A very well planned one week adventure in the Galápagos Islands! We had wonderful tour guides who explained the flora and fauna. we saw all the amazing Galapagos animals and it was exhilarating to experience snorkeling (three times!!) for the first time ever to see the underwater creatures! It has been a dream of mine to visit the Galápagos Islands since graduating from Genetics and Statistics in university and it was a delight to spend my birthday week there. Thank you again for the marvellous adventure!

Blanca organized the private tour for us very well. Everything worked like clockwork. The tour guides in all three locations were very knowledgeable and helpful. We had a fantastic experience and will recommend Sphera Travel to our family and friends.

Por el precio de la excursión, me parece que no vale la pena. El yate es muy bueno, no hay duda de ello, pero lo que viene a ser la excursión deja mucho que desear.
