Reviews from this trip

5 stars
  • The trip to the Galapagos was fabulous - a trip of a lifetime. One that I would suggest everyone take, especially if you are an animal person. The Legend ship was wonderful; the staff extremely helpful and the guides on each excursion extremely knowledgeable. Every portion of the trip went without a hitch.

  • Galapagos was a once in a lifetime experience. Each island was unique, the animals so fearless, and the scenery fantastic. We had a great cruise on the Legend- the food, accommodations and guides were excellent.
    Marshall Wong
  • The guides on the Galapagos Legend were wonderful as well. Everybody was terrific. They all did their best to make sure we had a good experience. The guides were always there when we arrived at our destinations and were very helpful when we left as well.
