I´ve learned so much about Peruvian culture and history. One of the best experiences was meeting all the people, like the Ecoamazonia lodge guide Elmer, Sol in Cusco!.

A review my recent Galápagos adventure on the Natural Paradise..

The good: them setting up the hotel, flights and transportation in Ecuador. Smooth and professional. The food was great! Every meal was delicious. My room (cabin 7) was large with a big bathroom and a balcony. They crew was great and accommodating.

Needs improvement: 1) cleanliness of my room. My first night there it was clear that someone had departed that morning..and I noticed the cabin wasn't cleaned as thoroughly as I would like. The towels were clean but had some stains on them. 2) the ship is new but there are broken items everywhere. There was a gap between the roof frame and my balcony. No blinds on the balcony door (which was a major issue with ship lights and sun rises). Floors were scuffed, deck boards faded. Looks like a lot of routine maintenance hasn't been done. 3) some of the excursions. Many times I felt the naturalist was taking his time (over) explaining a lot of things to fill the time. I do appreciate you changing the last day to include the tortoises!

The bad: the SUPER loud engine and generator. There was never a moment of silence on the ship. And when the motor turned on or the anchor went up or down, everyone on the ship wakes up.

My family and I went on the Natural Paradise 8 Day B Cruise at the end of June-beginning of July 2017. It was INCREDIBLE! I cannot say enough good things about the entire trip. The boat was so nice with all of the amenities you could want. The food was so good too! The staff was so friendly and helpful. They went out of their way to make sure we had an excellent trip, and they made it really fun. Our naturalist was extremely knowledgeable and made sure he showed us and taught us as much as possible. The Galapagos is obviously amazing, and we saw incredible animals and nature. However, it truly was the staff on the Natural Paradise that made our trip. Thank you!!! I would highly recommend this trip, the Natural Paradise, and Royal Galapagos.
