Classic Galapagos: South Eastern Islands (Grand Queen Beatriz)

Jennifer · Traveled January 2024
This was a bucket list destination for me and I had high expectations going into the trip. Incredibly the trip far exceeded my expectations. We had two naturalist guides during the trip and both Roberto and Karla were very knowledgeable, organised, communicated well, and shared their enthusiasm and passion for the Galapagos. The itinerary was impacted by island closures for onshore landings due to concerns around avian flu - while it was disappointing not to follow the itinerary on some days, we were notified in advance by Intrepid and the activities offered instead gave us comparable alternative experiences. We had a top crew onboard the Grand Queen Beatriz and I was so pleased with the meals offered onboard, cleanliness in the cabin and in common areas, and safety measures taken on the pangas and snorkeling. This was one of the best trips I have done with Intrepid.

Galapagos Island Hopping

Mary · Traveled January 2024
Amazing holiday! So fun to travel to this area with a great group of like-minded people and of course, a wonderful tour guide, who was extremely knowledgeable of the plants, animal, and history.

Best of Galapagos

Rebecca · Traveled January 2024
Would highly recommend this tour. Three days are spent travelling in total (between islands, getting to and from the Galapagos), but once there, the surroundings and activities are unforgettable, especially the snorkelling and hikes. Our tour guide contributed in making this an amazing trip, and I cannot thank her enough!

Best of Galapagos

Ian · Traveled January 2024
Great trip and guide (Katty), really well organised activities and itinerary. We had some amazing experiences snorkeling with turtles, sea lions, fish, sharks, penguins and iguanas. Also saw giant tortoises and climbed a volcano. A great way to explore the Galapagos.

Galapagos Adventure: Northern Islands (Grand Daphne)

Mina · Traveled January 2024
Absolutely marvelous vacation. The crew members took care of us every step of the way. Meals were well-prepared and with consideration of allergies and preferences. I’m missing this vacation already!
