Galapagos Natural Life S.A. is a touristic company and also owns the touristic operator GALAPAGOS NATURAL LIFE and the HOSTEL GALAPAGOS, both located in Quito. Our history started in 2005, when María Teresa Canchig and Rodrigo Canchig had a meeting, during which the idea to create a company which offers touristic services with high standards of quality was born. Since that moment there is Galapagos Natural Life, a tourism company, always looking to sell the most economic touristic packages for going to the Galapagos Islands.

To Whom It May Concern, My wife and I recently completed a cruise on the Monserrat and I wanted to provide some critical feedback to the company. Overall the cruise was really good, but we did have one guide who I strongly feel is not appropriate to be hired for these types of trips and that dampened the trip quite a bit. His name was Samuel and he was onboard from May 22-26. He is generally cheerful and knowledgeable, but is morbidly obese (probably weighs 400-500lbs) and physically unable to complete the activities of the trip. For many of the land or snorkeling excursions he simply never left the boat and if he did, he never was able to keep up with the (slow moving) group. This caused the group of 17-19 passengers to be led by only 1 guide which was not ideal for us or the other guide. In fact, one time Samuel tried walking on a relatively flat loop trail behind the group and at the end of our hike we could not find him and the other guide had to go search for him. Luckily he was okay, just short of breath and unable to walk long distances at a time, but we were all concerned if he had gotten injured how we would be able to rescue him given his body habitus. Additionally he was unable/unwilling to sleep in the tour guide room in the yatch, so he slept in the common area on the couch and snored loudly. Not just at night, but also at times throughout the day. This made a significant portion of the yatch's common area inaccessible to the of the passengers for much of the time he was with us. Please pass this information along to the tour operator as I don't want other guests to have similar experiences as we did Sincerely, Michael Tudeen

So much more than I ever expected! Staff on La Pinta were helpful and friendly. Although I know they serve almost 50 guests, week after week, they recognized me with a quick smile and friendly comments - like they were happy I was their guest. The galley and waitstaff were tremendous. Always gracious and accommodating. The cabins on La Pinta are large and comfortably appointed, with a floor to ceiling window. Most of the guides were amazing - very knowledgable and enthusiastic about each of the excursions - at least two and and sometimes four excursions per day! Small groups of 12 or fewer guests per excursion helped to make it feel like a personal experience.

What a wonderful lifetime experience on the Anahi. All the crew took care of us and Captain Tony was very friendly and approachable. He joined in with many of our snorkels pointing out extraordinary sea creatures such as White tip shark. We had a very roomy suite on the upper deck. Our guide Roberto was the best! He was extremely knowledgeable about everything and with a great sense of humour. Thank you for a most wonderful experience! Everything went smoothly from day to day with a rich array of outings! We will always remember this extraordinary adventure! Irene and Rich Page from Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario Canada
