Memorable Family Christmas Trip in Galapagos · Galapagos Islands - Dec 21 - Dec 28, 2019

Traveler: Jean Y. - Local specialist: Edwin Vega

My family just came back from our Christmas trip to Galapagos and it was wonderful. Since I booked the trip too late (even it was 6 months ahead), I couldn't find a cruise that would fit our schedules. So I turned to my old friend Kimkim. They once again did a good job arranging our 8 day trip among the three islands. The whole trip went smoothly and we were in good hands at each step, all the tours and guides we had were very good as well. We will never forget the experience of swimming... read more

My family just came back from our Christmas trip to Galapagos and it was wonderful. Since I booked the trip too late (even it was 6 months ahead), I couldn't find a cruise that would fit our schedules. So I turned to my old friend Kimkim. They once again did a good job arranging our 8 day trip among the three islands. The whole trip went smoothly and we were in good hands at each step, all the tours and guides we had were very good as well. We will never forget the experience of swimming with sea turtles, it was surreal. Thank our local specialist Edwin for being patient with my while designing the trip and also his speedy help during the trip. Especially thanks for our guide Nelly (The lady who lead our Tuneles tour on the Christmas day), she encouraged and helped me (since I had an injured arm) to complete the snorkeling which turned out to be the highlight of the trip.
If I have to say one thing to improve, it would be that the instruction should emphasize the entrance fees etc. can only be paid by cash.

Couldn't Have Been Better! · Galapagos Islands - Oct 10 - Oct 19, 2019

Traveler: Carolyn T. - Local specialist: Iveth Granda

I cannot say enough about Iveth and her team. They were absolutely phenomenal. Our trip to the Galapagos went off without a hitch. And given the fact that there was a countrywide shutdown of transportation and its providers, it was a miracle that none of our plans were changed. They were quick on their feet, responsive and- most of all- protective of us and of our experience. The tours that Iveth arranged in the islands were informative, fun and adventurous.

I cannot say enough about Iveth and her team. They were absolutely phenomenal. Our trip to the Galapagos went off without a hitch. And given the fact that there was a countrywide shutdown of transportation and its providers, it was a miracle that none of our plans were changed. They were quick on their feet, responsive and- most of all- protective of us and of our experience. The tours that Iveth arranged in the islands were informative, fun and adventurous. A few times we had personal guides that provided one-on-one insight into the Galapagos and its amazing inhabitants. We saw every animal we wanted to see! The hotels that we stayed in were all good to great with hot showers and comfortable beds (true necessities after a day of exploring!).
Iveth was truly lovely and she made sure that we were taken care of every step of the way. She knows her territory and she loves her country and its people. Her enthusiasm shows through in her attention to detail and her ability to put the right guide with the right people. When we return to Ecuador, which we have promised Iveth we would, we will definitely use her services again.

Land based adventure · Galapagos Islands - Jul 20 - Jul 27, 2019

Traveler: Raeanne M. - Local specialist: Edwin Vega

We had a most memorable trip. From our conversations via message with Edwin, who answered all my queries, to Karla who met us at the airport and then guided us through her Galapagos. Her passion and knowledge for the Islands was evident and she was patient in explaining all the different flora and fauna. She was so accommodating with me when we had to do the 3x 3 hour boat trips as I can get sea sick and also helped out a complete stranger who was really sick on one of the trips.

We had a most memorable trip. From our conversations via message with Edwin, who answered all my queries, to Karla who met us at the airport and then guided us through her Galapagos. Her passion and knowledge for the Islands was evident and she was patient in explaining all the different flora and fauna. She was so accommodating with me when we had to do the 3x 3 hour boat trips as I can get sea sick and also helped out a complete stranger who was really sick on one of the trips. We enjoyed having our own free time and Karla’s suggestions for dinner.
I was great to have someone who spoke Spanish and knew the ways to get tickets, where o go and the best places to sit.
The different activities were good but I would suggest offering to be able to bike ride the wetlands on Isabela Island so that the wall of tears could be reached as well. Also just something a bit different as we enjoy bike riding. Or maybe offer it as something that could be done on the free afternoon.
Taking into account where we were, I felt the first stay on San Cristobel was just adequate. Santa Cruz’s Hotel was lovely but Isabela Island hostel was very basic. Our room was next to a generator that constantly went off. The ‘taxi driver’ was the son of the hotelier. He was not friendly, drove like he was on a car rally and totally did not understand his clients.
That was really the only down side to an otherwise memorable trip to the Galapagos!! Thanks kimkim

Ps- other that me losing my necklace that will hopefully be at one of the hotels!!

Trip to Galapagos Islands with Amy & Jeanne · Galapagos Islands - Jun 28 - Jul 2, 2019

Traveler: Lynette V. - Local specialist: Gabor Csizmadia

Bob and I truly enjoyed our time on the Yacht Anahi. The staff was warm and very helpful. Any request was immediately attended.

Our cabin was spacious and comfortable. We were surprised to find that it was bigger than the hotel room we had in Quito! We had all of the amenities and then some! Couldn’t have been happier.

Our guide, Gallo, was extremely knowledgeable, organized, efficient and funny 😄. He was informative on all aspects of the Galapagos - flora, fauna, birds, reptiles,... read more

Our guide, Gallo, was extremely knowledgeable, organized, efficient and funny 😄. He was informative on all aspects of the Galapagos - flora, fauna, birds, reptiles, sea life...we left this trip with a lot more than we bargained. We can’t wait to return and visit the other islands that weren’t part of this trip.

The food was delicious. Karen is a great chef and produced wonderful meals each day. My only suggestion is to offer snacks that are readily available to the guests...like a bowl of fruit. Snacks were available when the crew put them out after an occasional excursion, not all excursions, and were in the form of a bowl of potato chips or pork rinds. Things we don’t normally consume. No real options.

Lastly, the jacuzzi on the second level was not utilized. Twice I requested turning on the unit and was met with a “later” excuse that never materialized.

Overall, it was an amazing experience. Truly a trip of a lifetime. We are very grateful to the crew, our guide Gallo and Gabor at Kimkim.

Hi Lynette!

Thank you for the feedback and the photos, they look amazing! :)

I´m happy that your overall feedback is positive, and please accept my apologies for the issue with the jacuzzi, I will contact the crew directly and talk to them about this, as well as suggest having snacks available throughout the whole cruise.

If you plan on returning to Ecuador or maybe travelling to Peru or Bolivia, please count with my help!

Take care,

Trip to Galapagos Islands · Galapagos Islands - May 27 - May 31, 2019

We enjoyed our 5 days of sailing in the Galapagos aboard the Fragata. Our guide, Roberto, was entertaining and knowledgeable about the islands. We especially enjoyed our interactions with the crew, namely Ramon and Jordan. They made our time aboard the boat fun by joining us for games. It was great to get to know them.

Overall, we had a great experience.

One suggestion is about snorkel gear rental. The Fragata website is not clear about cost of rentals. It lists a price for snorkel equipment. What is not clear is that this price is for either snorkel and mask OR fins. If you want the full package, it is double the cost.

Hi Keri! I'm happy you all had a great experience, especially with the crew!
I'm really sorry about the confusion with the prices for the snorkel equipment but thank you for letting me know! I will get in touch with the company so the website is reviewed and it clarifies the exact price of the full package.
Kind regards,
Isabel
