"It was a terrific experience working with ExpeditionTrips! Your staff went above and beyond to answer all our (thousands! it seemed) questions and to make sure from start to finish that our trip was seamless. A trip to the Galapagos Islands was something we wanted to do for some time, always considering it to be a "trip of a lifetime", a trip that would be truly unique and unlike anything we had ever done. It was!"
