How was your Explore Tour Leader?
"We had two - Diego Torres in Ecuador, I think the best tour leader I have ever experienced and Daniel on the Galapagos Cruise - a different character but a very knowledgeable naturalist who obviously loves the Islands and all they stand for.
I would also like to state that all the crew members on the boat with whom we had contact were courteous, caring and friendly."
What tips would you give to someone else booking this tour?
Go with an open mind and enjoy and the sites and sounds, they are amazing. It is a very energetic trip, not must rest then I don't expect that on an 'Explore' holiday but a wonderful experience. Ecuador mainland is a hidden gem and the Galapagos are, as stated on the Explore write-up 'captivating'
Do you have anything else to add?
Can I suggest just a few words extra on the Galapagos Cruise write-up in your covering notes. You state 'Please note: this itinerary is subject to change depending on Galapagos Park Authorities' No problem with this but suggest you add something to the effect that only some of the islands will be visited not all can be in the time scale of one week. Some of my travel companions moaned about this and weren't being realistic.
