Our Staff

I have lived all my life in the Galapagos and in April 2018 I was lucky enough to begin my employment at Galakiwi. From that day forward I have been surrounded by some extraordinary people and have come to know them well. I am so thankful for the opportunities that Galakiwi has offered me, and most importantly how they have helped me grow as a person in my work and personal life.

Galakiwi is more than a workplace, it’s like a second family. I am the head HR person and that means I must know my colleagues very well and keep track of all pertinent information. I take much pride in this work and know that it is very important for the company.

Galakiwi has taught me to overcome my fears, and dream big. They have helped me fulfill those dreams by teaching me to overcome daily hurdles and focus on being the best person I can be. By doing this, I can say that I have become a calm, dedicated, responsible, and orderly person. Galakiwi inspires me everyday to improve upon these qualities and always keep working towards my goals.

I enjoy spending my free time with my family. I love to listen to music, read, and travel. This gives me the opportunity to see things that you might not even think exist when you are wrapped up in the daily routine, and when you realize that they do, they become an important part of your life. Occasionally I enjoy running or playing sports, the most important thing is to not let excuses get in the way.

Galakiwi is not just where I work, Galakiwi is a part of my family, and my family is a part of them.

    The x-factor with Galakiwi's tour, being land-based, is the insight you get into real life on the Galapagos. This was what lifted our trip beyond the expected 'trip of a lifetime' to see the natural sights of the Galapagos, to a really meaningful (though short!) experience in another country and culture.

    We had a great land-based trip with Galakiwi -it as fun being ashore at night and wandering among the wildlife and with the locals in the street. And staying on an extra couple of days gave us time by ourselves but with full support from the Galakiwi team when we wanted it. The best of both worlds with a great professional approach. Thanks heaps as they say in NZ!

    While I knew I would enjoy the Galapagos, the trip with Galakiwi became for me the highlight of our South American travels.

    We spent a month in South America and our time in the Galapagos was the highlight. There were new delightful surprises multiple times a day. Our guide, Pablo, shared his enthusiasm with us and kept us entertained with great stories and fascinating information each and every day. The land based tour from Galakiwi was definitely the right choice. We have spoken to others that took ship based tours and we feel that we made a great choice with Galakiwi. It was the trip of a lifetime!

    I had been planning a trip with my family for ages, and when the idea to go to Galapagos emerged, I thought what a better place to reunite with family and induce some very needed bonding opportunity. The fantastic natural setting was super conductive to this goal, but if it wasn't for GALAKIWI's immaculate service and attention it wouldn't have happened. So thanks to you guys for everything!

    We are three couples with different interests and abilities, but the trip was great for all of us. The activities were a blast, our guide was top-notch and everything went just as we had hoped. We really loved it and would highly recommend Galakiwi to anyone thinking of a land-based Galapagos trip.

    The Galapagos mountain biking adventure trip was an amazing experience. Having to dodge a giant tortoise in the middle of the road is not something that happens every day. A great way to see these beautiful and unique islands in a slightly more detailed way.
