Your tour guide is the person who holds most of the cards when it comes to what type of experience you get. A group of 10 high school students and two teachers requires a different type of guide and client relationship that not everyone can provide. I can only speak for the one tour guide we had, but he was able to deliver a top-notch experience.

Thanks to Galakiwi, our Melbourne Girls College educational trip to the Galapagos Islands was a huge success. We wanted an all-round travel, community, scientific experience for our girls and Galakiwi delivered a fantastic program. There was an excellent combination of conservation work with the Giant Tortoises, interaction with local school children and the chance to experience the unique wildlife of the Galapagos Islands. The tour guides on each of the islands demonstrated a genuine love for their country and an astounding knowledge of their environment. Nicholas, Pablo and Pepo obviously love passing on their knowledge to visitors and lead us in fun and challenging activities. Tim accompanied us for the time on the islands and his sense of humour and ability to connect to a variety of personalities made our trip really memorable. The addition of a few days on the mainland of Ecuador was fantastic. It added an extra cultural and geographical aspect to our trip. Thanks to Galakiwi for putting together such a wonderful program for our students to experience.

I'd really like to say a very sincere thank you to you and to all the members of the Galakiwi team as we had a fantastic trip! The tour more than exceeded our expectations. All of the students had an unforgettable experience and now they're all asking when we can do it again!

Everything from the accommodation, food and activities was perfect...we have no complaints! Special thanks to Zambo and Pepo who really made the trip extraordinary. Their passion and enthusiasm was so inspiring and they had a wonderful rapport with all of the kids.

We could not have had a better trip and have been praising your team to anyone and everyone who is still willing to listen to us go on and on about our awesome trip.

We definitely look forward to organising another visit in the future.
