          I saw some rating somewhere that weren't happy with Las Ninfas because they only speak in Spanish. My response to that is uhhh...think about where you are. For the majority of the trip, everybody was fantastic. The guides were great for a majority of the time minus a few quirks here and there, of that being when they talk, they talk in spanish so fast that it is difficult to understand. I do not have a problem with the spanish but they could have spoken a bit slower because there were a lot of people from other countries there. That was my only real complaint. The good wasn't bad at all. The accommodations were worth it. The beaches, the atmosphere, the way they take care of you was really well done and thought out. I would have liked to have seen a few more things like more blue footed boobies but when they sent you off to Florena or Isabella or wherever you go, you are on a good boat with a good captain and they make sure you are safe and if you get sick they take care of you as well. It sure beats the hell out of Royal Palm which costs 300$ per night. Get to the Galapagos. You won't regret it.

          ... We found the little seed which was the culprit and pulled it out. I just patched the tube and we continued on our way. The hills were pretty long and at times steep but we made it back to one of the towns. From here the road was undulating as we traversed across the island. We eventually reached the descent into the main town where we were staying. It was nice and relaxing cruising down all the way back home.

          We returned the bikes on time and carried on. This was probably ...

          ... We hope they're feeling well enough for Machu Picchu - it would be a travesty to miss it. Lastly, Tony and Kirsten. Both from London, met on Tinder (!) and have been together for two years. Both are well travelled (I'm really jealous of Tony's trip to Antarctica) and were the youngest in our group trip at early 30's. Kirsten is a commercial property surveyor and Tony is a chess teacher. He is self-employed and travels across many different schools, training kids to play ...

          ... waiting for us when we returned. I don't think we snorkeled here because of the winds and visibility. It was so windy and choppy and I have not picture record of it so it must not have happened. The afternoon consisted of an exploration walk on Punta Espinoza on Fernandina. This place was amazing. It was essentially a walking trails amongst the lava rocks and beaches where we saw every animal imaginable. We saw ...

          ... font-size: 12px; line-height: normal;">The next day we decided to hire bicycles and cycle to the tortoise sanctuary over the ridge towards the east of the island. We set off pretty early, after we got our bikes and directions. We were told that the route had some hills, but there was a bike lane a lot of the way so it was quite easy. Maybe if we were pro cyclists with EPO, it would have been easy! We were not, and it was not easy. The first 17km was JUST climbing. When ...

          ... After lunch we made our way to Punta Carrion where we got our first true glimpse of Galápagos wildlife. Overnight we navigated our way towards Isabela Island. Thank goodness we decided to buy sea sickness tablets at the last minute in Quito - without them it would not have been pleasant. There was no rest as the next morning we were up early to visit Las Tintoneras before breakfast where we saw lots and lots of ...
