  • A Dream Come True

    Visiting the Galapagos Islands had been at the top of my wish list for as long as I can remember and this trip was everything I'd dreamt of. Every day brought special, close-up encounters with magnificent animals - male frigatebirds displaying their bright red chests, sea lions stretched out on the beach nursing their young pups or cheekily hitching a ride on the back of our boat and pairs of blue-footed boobies engaged in a courtship dance. The Archipel 1 is modern, spotlessly clean, spacious and comfortable with a friendly, hard-working and efficient crew. The food is excellent in quality, quantity and variety. The boat has the capacity for 16 guests, which enables everyone to get to know one another.

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    There were many, but looking into the eyes of a 130 year old giant tortoise was a particularly special moment for me, as was lying on the top deck of the boat and watching a dozen or so frigatebirds flying just three metres above us.

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Our naturalist guide, Marvi, was born in the Galapagos and is a real expert on the islands. He is engaging, enthusiastic, organised and friendly.

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    Take a pair of sturdy shoes, such as walking boots or trainers. The terrain on some of the islands can be difficult, involving clambering over large, uneven and occasionally loose boulders. A water bottle and a sealable bag to keep your camera dry and free of sand are also essential.

    Is there anything else you would like to add?

    Storm Eunice led to my arriving in Quito a day later than scheduled, so unfortunately I wasn't able to take up any of the optional sightseeing trips in the city. The Casona De La Ronda hotel in Quito is quite simply gorgeous.
