Reviews from this trip
Maya was terrific. She runs a tight ship, is a fun character, and is so knowledgeable and passionate about the islands. We would highly recommend the Angelito - every day was an amazing adventure.Janice and John Baldwin
Maya our guide on the Angelito was a superb guide and naturalist. Both her knowledge of the natural world and ability to read the group set the stage for an incredible trip full of life long memories.Celese and Patrick Spencer
I can’t say enough about the AMAZING time we had aboard our ship, The Angelito.... our Guide, Maja, was extremely knowledgeable about everything there is to know about the Galapagos... We just simply had an amazing time aboard The Angelito and will remember it for the rest of our lives!William Mantani & Allison Gordon
What can I say about the Angelito except that I would highly recommend this to everyone! The meals were simple but well prepared. The staff was extremely happy to help with all needs and the size of the boat is perfect. What a special time!Diane Saber, Scott Schwartz and family
Maya was wonderful. She combined the best of being Swiss German (very well organized and punctual) with having spent the last 27 years in the Galapagos which perhaps has contributed to her being relaxed and flexible. She has extensive knowledge of the Galapagos from 27 years of first-hand experience.Susan Braaatz
