IE Galapagos Islands cruise  guests Jane and Tom Dupont have just returned from their February journey. The Duponts were good enough to share their favorite photos and memories from seven days aboard the M/V Evolution .
"My husband and I recently returned from an amazing travel adventure in the Galapagos Islands with International Expeditions. Certainly, the wildlife, up close and personal, was enough of a reason to head to these unique islands off the west coast of Ecuador, but what unfolded over several days proved to be an extraordinary travel experience.
There were fifteen of us, lead by our remarkable naturalist guide, Boli Sanchez , who, along with the dedicated crew of the M/V Evolution saw to our safety, comfort and every need. Our days were filled with delicious meals, nature walks, snorkeling, panga rides, kayaking and informative naturalist briefings. Our post-lunch mandatory siesta became a welcome time to recharge, as was our post-snorkeling warm up in the hot tub. Each day brought new sights and experiences as the wildlife enchanted and amazed us.
Thus, eight hundred or so pictures later, these highlights are a small sampling of unbeatable memories forever engraved on our hearts:
Yet I do have one cautionary note: If you go on this IE tour, no trip will ever measure up this incredible experience! The Galapagos Islands, unique and special have much to offer, but it was our marvelous guide and crew that made this a truly extraordinary adventure!"
