    Our trip was a dream come true. They arranged snorkelling tours, tour of the turtle breeding centre, flights from Quito, hotels and the best restaurants.
    The staff were always there to guide and help us. The snorkelling guides were very informative, courteous and helpful. We are looking forward to return.

    We booked with you because you were the only tour including flamingos. There was only one and he was distant to us. I don’t expect you to control the birds, but we could have swung back by the location after visiting the tortoise breeding facility. We were so disappointed and the guide seemed unconcerned

    One of the best trips i’ve had. The daily tours were very well organized. Galapagos is beautiful and has so much to offer. I always felt safe, even as solo traveller.
    The different places we explored were all worth it, and well timed. The description says it’s an “intensive” trip, but I had good enough free time to explore parts of the island of my own and rest.
    Thank you to Rodrigo and Betty who were always attentive to my needs, as well as the different tour guides.

    For a half day trip, this tour packed in so much. The slow boat ride delivered sightings of penguins, sea lions, rays and turtles within minutes. The short walk over the lava fields gave us views of the inlet where the turtles and white-tipped sharks come to bask. There were also brown iguanas nesting.
    The snorkelling got us in close contact with seals, turtles, penguins and sharks.
    Our guide was very informative and constantly spotting things of interest. I would thoroughly recommend this tour.

    We did the Cabo Rosa/Tuneles tour on May 5, 2024, yesterday. The weather was overcast and a bit windy - not the greatest. This may have colored some of my comments below.

    Rodolfo, our tour leader, was a good leader. He was clear with his instructions, made sure we had a good experience and was definitely very familiar with the entire operation.

    However, it is not a trip for the feint of heart as the entrance and exit to/from the snorkeling area and the sight seeing areas (Los Túneles) requires tricky maneuvering of the boat through impressive surf and eye popping waves. The boat we were on which was barely big enough for the 12 tour participants plus the 3 tour guides was cramped quarters and this made the trip out to the 2 sights and back (45-60 min each way) a rough ride.

    This being said, it was all worth it. We saw rays, reef sharks, sea horses, many enormous & beautiful turtles, a lobster, penguins, blue footed boobies (up close), and we were given plenty of time to see it all. Rudolfo made sure we all were able to see as much variety as possible in a very relaxed and unhurried way. He did a great job.

    I’ll also add that the boat captain definitely knew what he was doing in guiding the boat into the snorkeling and land viewing areas through the surf as it required a lot of expertise and knowledge of the boat and the area.

    While we had hoped for a larger boat I can’t see how that would have been possible given the challenges of getting in and out of the reef through the surf and the waves. A larger boat could not have done it.

    This is not a nambi pambi tour but if you want to see a lot of cool Galapagos creatures with a group of guys that know their stuff we would definitely recommend this tour.

    We had an amazing day on this guided tour! Omar was a great guide and provided a wealth of information.
    The pace of the hike was good. Well worth the effort to see a beautiful and other worldly environment on beautiful Isabela Island. We enjoyed the food after our hike -very good! Thank you for the photos and
    for a wonderful day!

    We booked several tours with this company, everything was well organized, and enjoyable, in the Galapagos we managed to see many animals, stay in decent hotels, eat well and all that on low budget, Itai and his team were always available to answer our questions, we had a great time and we highly recommend this travel agency.

    A cute small town where you can organize any activity. Animals are all around, and would defitely recommend snorkeling at la cancha de la perla.
    Keep in mind it's far away from the main land, so more expensive than pueto ayora for example (6 dollars a beer - 10 dollars menú del día) but much more quaint and quiet.

    Rebecca's Adventure Travel turned out to be an excellent choice for our trip to the Galapagos Islands. The Islands are enchanting and should be on your bucket list. With just one exception, the guides Rebecca's lined up for us were highly informative and entertaining. The hotels were all good or great, and the people who helped us were warm and helpful. (The only thing we wouldn't repeat was the speedboat trips between islands - those were brutal!)

    My friend and I booked this 4 months before leaving- and we couldn't have made a better choice.
    The food was delicious, the tour guides spoke English l, the tour groups were small (some were even 1 on 1) and most importantly - we were taken care of from the moment we landed on Baltra to the moment we were leaving Baltra one week later.
    Our name was on the top of every excursion list every day, our rides were always on time, our travel agent (Alex) was responsive, attentive, caring and even showed up at our door to say goodbye.
    To have someone always ready and waiting for us before and after each excursion put us at ease. We did not have to worry about anything.

    We did suggest that they adjust their itinerary slightly for future travelers and Alex happily took it into consideration.

    I booked a 10 days tour to the Galapagos with Eduardo, and had the best time of my life! Eduardo arrange an itenerary fillled with activities for me in Santa Cruz, Isabela and San Cristobal. I was mainly into diving and snorkling and had an amazing time diving with the best diving centers in the Galapagos in the most famous locations as well. I also had some land tours in the highlands and it was wounderful! Eduardo arranged an english guide for me so I will understand everything. Eduardo and his family (Alexandra) are so nice, they took care of me the entire trip. We stayed in touch all the time in the office and in the phone as well. They took care of my every need. The tour included sleeping arrangment in a pricate rooms and lunch. As soon as I landed in Baltra a guy waited for me and took me to Porto Ayura. Also driving me and picking me up from / to activities. Thanks to them I could focus on having fun and had enjoyed my trip to the maximum. Thanks for the good times!

    Amazing trip, my expectations were exceeded. Alex organised the activities well and his enthusiasm for the beauty of the Galapagos was infectious and his knowledge was invaluable. The beauty of the beaches and volcanic scenery was unbelievable. The islands required long boat rides to travel between each one so Alex’s advice to spend time on each island was well founded.

    Alex personalized a hybrid trip for us, combining Galapagos with a 4 day trip to Cuyabeno and adding some trips around Quito. We absolutely loved the trip and Takiri was very reliable about always meeting us where and when they said they would. There were some bumps in the road, none Takiri's fault, and they always did their very best to work things out for us. Communication was easy. We'd absolutely use them again. One recommendation: the transfers were the biggest issues for us, and it's worth paying for whatever upgrades are available for ferries in the Galapagos and for transport by private car to the Amazon. Loved it, loved it, loved it! ("Who was with you" question didn't have drop down for just family -- we had no teens.)

    Used the Lindblad National Geographic Endeavor II. Package included airfare from Miami to Guayaquil, hotel, flight to Galapagos to board our ship and return. The travel to and from was very well organized. They do have an efficient system.

    Ship had 100 passengers and 63 crew. Typical day was a landing on an island for a walk of a mile or so with a naturalist. Since I was solo, I would go back to the disembark area and wait in line to hop onto a Zodiac. Each Zodiac had a driver, room for 8 on each side and then the guide/naturalist would hop on last. Random who you got, but I found that all of them were very knowledgeable down to the Latin names of things. Back to the ship for lunch and then back into the Zodiacs for snorkeling. And a couple of times there was a pretty good hike. One day was spent at the Darwin Research Station and then up to the highlands for a lunch and walk about the giant tortoises.

    I had a BLAST every day. The trip checked all of my boxes. All of the crew were great, food was great, service was great and even the Captain serenaded us one night with Latin songs.

    Pricey, but I had been wanting to do this for decades.

    Notes: They have good gear for snorkeling.
    A couple of people had Go cameras and got good underwater shots of sea turtles and sea lions that swam with us.
    I downloaded from Apple Books a naturalists guide to the Galapagos and read during my flights down. Good preparation. Guides were impressed that I had done my homework.
    Don't eat all of the food that they put in front of you. I put on only one pound.
