We chose this adventure because of the reputation al National Geographic and their photographers. We were not disappointed. We were lucky enough to have Don Johansson on board to educate us on Darwin and the discovery of “Lucy”. What a treat! We were able to see all the wild life up close and personal and learn how to get really good shots. Every activity was planned to the tee and the ...

Go National Geographic/Linblad! While the unique ecosystem of the Galapagos exists for all, the ability to experience it to the fullest is not always the case. Each day we were offered three/four unique expeditions, and often two levels of the same expedition. So, while I snorkeled the deep waters the first day and hurt myself, my partner chose a 3 mile hike and I was able to be on a much shorter ...

The trip was seamless and excellent from start to finish. There were representatives at every embarkation and disembarkation points to help us on our way. The crew, staff, and guides onboard were friendly, courteous, and always willing to help with any situation. The food was great. Our cabin was very well appointed, the bed comfortable, the head facilities were very well appointed and included a ...

We had heard about this NGLindblad Galapagos expedition from friends who had done it a prior year. The whole experience exceeded our expectations (which were already high). Lindblad takes care of every detail, from being met at Miami Airport to final drop off in Guayaquil. Everyone on the ship was top notch- knowledgeable, professional, helpful. The naturalists were amazing , with their broad and ...

We wanted to see all the best Peru and Ecuador had to offer in one trip and this exceeded our expectations. The pre trip to the cloud forest of Mashpi was stunning, i will remember our fabulous guide Fernando and the tiny frogs and hummingbirds forever. Quito too was a lovely surprise, beautiful historic city. Cruise itself around Galapagos was perfect; busy with expeditions 2 - 3 times per day so ...

Since Galapagos is a trip of a lifetime and difficult to get to, we wanted to make sure we did it right. The ship, crew & naturalists were EXCELLENT! Each excursion was with a small group and a Naturalist. The Naturalists were extremely knowledgeable, articulate, attentive and personable. They made it interesting, fun, educational and safe; and their passion for the Galapagos was evident. ...

Could not have asked for a better experience. From the moment we were in the hands of Lindblad everything was handled flawlessly. Pre travel questions were handled in a professional timely fashion. All land accommodations were excellent. Embarkation and debarkation were well coordinated and executed. Ship board accommodations were comfortable, roomy and clean. Housekeeping visited the ...

It was always a dream of mine to see both Galapagos and Machu Picchu, ever since I started receiving catalogs from Lindblad and NatGeo. If I was going to see these historic places, I wanted National Geographic to be a part of it so that I could maximize my experience and my learning. I wanted the see more and do more, in a safe and secure environment. But I also wanted a small group ...

We choose this cruise due to the nature & places the cruise went. We knew there would be things we'd never see again. The ports were fabulous. There were so many things to see. The service was great & staff very friendly. There were many excursions daily. The only thing we feel would be better is if prior to the trip an itinerary of the each days activities had been sent. We were told ...

As a scientist and biologist, I wanted to explore the Galapagos Islands for myself to witness the uniqueness of species that motivated Charles Darwin to advance his factual theories on evolution and natural selection. The National Geographic team aboard the Endeavor II gave us an exceptionally motivating expedition of the most unique location on our planet. The experience was enhanced by the ...
