Fantastic. The crew, excursions, facilities, safety and the guide were all perfect. The only negative was the tipping. It is not in our Australian culture, and we paid a lot for the cruise, so we were a bit confused about if we should or needed to tip. In Australia we do not generally tip as our minimum wage is very good. I understand this is not the case in America so tipping is pretty much mandatory. We did not think we needed to tip in Ecuador though, thus the confusion. All in all it was an amazing trip though.



The Yacht itself is a small but wonderful and thoroughly restored wooden yacht. Cabin space is quite small, but most of the time is anyhow spent on board or on trips. The yacht team takes professional care of the guests, they are always friendly and helpful. Homekeeping was perfect. The cabins and showers have been cleaned thoroughly on a daily basis. Fresh linen every second day. As there are max 16 guests on board, it felt almost familiar. The meals are throughout ecuadorian kitchen and delicious. They also served cakes and cookies in the afternoon. Spanish is helpful as english knowledge of the team is limited. The tour guide spoke perfect english and helped in all situations. The tours had been very good organized and very interesting with a lot of information. We booked through "Ecuador green travel", which worked out fine. All in all, we enjoyed our stay with Aida Maria yacht very much and can advice it to everyone that does not need luxury but requires a familiar atmosphere, good organization and cleanliness.



The guide, captain and crew were friendly, accommodating and professional. The boat was very comfortable and well supplied with amenities. The tour was incredible - we saw so much and did so much in eight days, it’ll take me a month to sort through all of the awesome photos. Absolutely worth every penny. Thank you, Yate Darwin!



We went for our honeymoon and it was amazing. We don't usually spend so much money on vacation and Galapagos was a stretch for our budget. After doing research, we quickly realized the Daphne 4-day tour was the best bang for our buck, but we were still worried about how much it cost. We decided last-minute to do it as it is a bucket list item for us. And man, we do not regret it. The southern 4-day itinerary was amazing and we have pictures and go-pro videos for the rest of our lives that we will treasure. Jacinto, the guide, was incredible. Will recommend to friends and family.



We had an amazing trip to the coast and Puerto Lopez. Carlos was tremendous in booking our flights and hotels in response to a last minute request and addressing all of questions and responding to our requests. We had an amazing location the first night that allowed us to walk on the malecón in Guaquil(sp) as requested and then when we arrived the next day in Puerto Lopez entered into the most beautiful room on the beach that Carlos had booked for us!! A magical lush garden residence overlooking the ocean. We saw 15 different birds from our room in 15 minutes. The Mandala hotel was PERFECT- a magical beach retreat. The hotel was clearly the realization of an artist's dream. I cannot recommend Mandala, Puerto Lopez, or Carlos more highly. Once you get there - there is so much more to discover, beaches, sea turtle rescue centre, and watching local people bring in their fishing boats all day long. Beautiful!
