Best trip of my life
The commitment of the guides and the Ecuadorian government to maintaining this magical and wondrous place was utterly inspiring. The Galapagos is like returning to Eden: wonderful wildlife everywhere, I afraid of and not bothered by humans — I only hope that this wondrous place can survive and thieve In today’s world. The entire crew of the Origin helped to make this trip one that I will never forget. Antonio and Natasha were fantastic guides: knowledgeable, lovely people, passionate about their work and utterly devoted to seeing that the Galapagos is maintained.
