Although this part of the trip was not what is should have been - it was still wonderful. Juan Pablo was amazing to help out when my hubs was suffering with altitude sickness. Instead of going to the farm - we had to have a last minute change and Juan Pablo got us a hotel in the valley to help ease the altitude sickness. We really enjoyed that hotel. Sadly we did not get to see the condors - the fog came in and the visibility disappeared but we did see a ton of hummingbirds. The hot springs were to die for!!!! I did a chocolate wrap in the spa that was quite relaxing. I highly recommend working with Juan Pablo to figure out what will work best for you and your group!!!!

Juan Pablo planned our trip and he was so patient and kind during the whole process. I always have a ton of questions - and he always responded very quickly with detailed information. ANYTHING he recommended was wonderful. It was such a blessing to work with him! He reached out every day of the trip to see how things were going and if he could help out in any way. Each day on this adventurous trip we encountered another magical thing!!! We cannot say we loved one island more than the next or one day trip more than the next but we can easily come up with 3 of the most incredible things per day. The wildlife was amazing, the color of the water was so vivid, wonderful sunsets, and many of the beaches had the finest powder sand. It was also super refreshing to be somewhere that was not jam packed busy, huge buildings, and having advertisements in your face all day. We had one picky eater and he did not complain about any of the meals. We absolutely loved this trip. Thank you so much for your input, help, and incredible tips Juan Pablo! You will be hearing from me again for my next Galapagos adventure!!

Juan Pablo of Smart Galapagos organised a fantastic 8 day Galapagos experience for my group of 4 friends. It could not have been better organised. The hotels were all comfortable with lovely, helpful staff and great views. The restaurants were always the best in town. We saw all the major sights on the three main islands and it all ran like clockwork. He got us great prices and made sure we had a lot of extras. He kept in touch with us constantly, making sure everything was perfect. Thank you, Juan Pablo ! What a great experience ! All ' of us would highly recommend Smart Galapagos.
