We just returned from one of your tours. It was amazing! Great tours, friendly staff, nice cabins. I am going to recommend your company to my friends!

Stallar Lufrani-Jardine, United States

Amazing, amazing, amazing! Start to finish! It seemed to good to be true since the land-based tour was considerably less than other places I was thinking about booking, but it was real and the best experience of my life. We love the Nature Galapagos family!

Grace Chen Huang, United States

Nature Galapagos & Ecuador Inc. organized our trip. They answered our emails really fast and tried to accommodate all of our requests. Compared to other Galapagos tours, the price from this company was very reasonable and the quality of the trip was very good. We had knowledgeable, friendly and patient guides, nice, clean, and relaxing hotels. The 10-day tour also includes all the meals. We really appreciate that because food in Galapagos Islands are expensive. Food was also excellent!!! All of the activities were great and we had so much fun. Snorkeling with sea lions and penguins was a life time experience! Our favorite animal, however, is blue feet booies. They are so cute and funny looking! All the islands we visited were beautiful and unique. I highly recommend this company for your Galapagos trip. Read more
