Countries Visited: Ecuador Approximate Date of Trip: march 31, 2017-april 8, 2017 Overall trip rating: Excellent Overall trip comments: thrilling experience. we felt like kids. each day brought something new. we ran out of unique words to describe it. travel agent was great. Anahi crew was fantastic. and of course the Galapagos ...well pick the best adjective you can think of. Guide Rating: Excellent Guide Comments: Gallo was excellent. He has a perfect combination of traits. He is so enthusiastic. He is knowledgeable about the island, the geology, the people, the history, the wildlife. He is flexible. He would let us linger at specific areas that were interesting to us. We didn't feel rushed. If we wanted to spend 30 minutes sitting and watching an animal, he let us.
Excellent, This was the trip of a lifetime! The crew on the Anahi were phenomenal and super attentive.
Excelente equipo. El guía Roberto, el capitán y toda la tripulación muy serviciales siempre. Pero alguien que sobresalió fue ADIA, atento, servicial y siempre con la mejor disposición de ayudar y servir.

We’re back home now and wanted to let you know what a wonderful time we had on our recent Zarate Family Galapagos adventure. It’s taken me some time to get through photos. Since May we have been traveling for two months in the Balkan countries of Eastern Europe. And Addison, who is now 9-months old, keeps us plenty occupied too! 😃 As you know this was a special family gathering to celebrate my 70th birthday. The planning process started a couple of years in advance so there were lots of details to think about and worry about over a long stretch of time. As it turned out, the whole trip was a great success and terrific memory! Although we started with a few days in Quito, the main act was the Galapagos and the experience for all the family exceeded my hopes. One of the biggest decisions was picking the right boat and the M/C Anahi proved to be a big winner. The Anahi was the perfect size for our group of 13. The layout was perfect and Captain William and crew were great hosts. The food, hikes, kayaking, snorkeling, all the activities ~ everything was enjoyed by the family and everyone had a fun time. As you know, in addition to our adult kids, we had our 9-year old grandson Zavier and 6-month old granddaughter Addison. In the beginning of our cruise there may have been some trepidation of having an infant passenger, but Captain William and crew quickly appreciated the family vibe, gave particular care to the grandkids, and made us feel at home. Baby Addison was adopted into the hearts of the crew and Captain William and most of the crew were holding her with joy at some point during our cruise. Gaby, you often spoke of possible “surprises” in store on our various hikes and other activities. But our best “surprise” was you. You were the perfect match for my family ~ you were fantastic! Thank you, thank you, thank you! Of course, like any qualified guide, you knew the birds, flora, geology and history of the Galapagos. That was expected. But the lucky unexpected for us was your friendly manner and outgoing personality, which put everyone at ease and we felt you were a part of the Zarate family. Appreciate that you were attentive to the interests of each family member and made the experience educational, enlightening, and fun for everyone from youngest to oldest in the family. By the time one reaches 7 decades there is less interest in receiving presents and my thought for this trip was the best gift to myself was to give the family a memory, a special experience that we could all share for the coming years. This was my dream and that dream was more than fulfilled. Thank YOU for your big part in making this possible.
We all had “the times of our lives”. Thank you for marking this trip as fantastic for all of us.
Una semana extraordinaria en familia. Gracias a todos por su profesionalismo.
We had an incredible stay. The boat was very comfortable and the crew was fantastic.
It was great that our guide Pedro snorkeled with us and showed us a lot of different animals.
