Port Angeles WA - rural Olympic Peninsula
Wonderful trip in every way
I took the Galapagos trip that began June 16, 2019. The trip exceeded my expectations and they were already pretty high. Everything was praiseworthy--the logistics, the ship, the crew, the food, and the guides. Kevin Loughlin, Pedro Guaycha and John Kricher are all so experienced and knowledgeable, and fun to be with. Kevin is a very relaxed but efficient leader, so the atmosphere is always enjoyable. The photo opportunities were of course spectacular. The pace was not leisurely! Early morning start and three excursions every day. But even as the oldest among the party (late 70s) I was able to keep up, and thoroughly enjoy everything. The crew were always helpful with things like climbing back into a panga (zodiak) from the water after snorkeling. The hotel in Quito was also extremely comfortable, and the trip to see hummingbirds in the cloud forest a dividend. I highly recommend this trip, and wish I were still there.
