There's not a single superlative to accurately describe our trip. So many highlights on an extremely well planned and executed experience. From the initial contact to sadly saying farewell everything was amazing. As an inexperienced snorkeler I was a little concerned to begin but the multitude of underwater settings and observing soon melted my concerns away! I absolutely loved it. The wealth of knowledge from Pete and Colette our guide was shared with both humour and sensitivity to the flora, fauna and landscapes that we were introduced to. Thank you for the opportunity to learn and experience the wonderful islands and of course the fabulous MV MaryAnne.

Visiting the Galapagos Islands was a trip very much on our bucket list. Pete Oxford Expeditions offered us a unique small group expedition that would be a life changing experience. It certainly lived up to expectations. Pete’s knowledge and enthusiasm was surpassed only be his passion to ensure that everyone in the group fully experienced the abundance of wildlife and the natural landscapes. The trip was fully immersive from beginning to end and we will not hesitate to book another bucket list experience with Pete and Renee.

'Awesome' doesn't come close to describing this experience. Every aspect of the trip was organised impeccably with the care and attention to detail that comes from a wealth of expertise and knowledge shared by Pete and Renee. From the outset Renee guided us through the preparations we had to make for our adventure and Pete accompanying us on the trip, with local guides in attendance at each location, made sure that we didn't miss a single opportunity to observe wildlife, participate in novel experiences, meet interesting people and learn about their cultures. We were a mixed bunch to say the least with ages ranging from 29 to 70 something but we were all up for the challenges of the many different activities on offer and so well supported by all the guides and staff that we came home with a great sense of achievement as well as memories to treasure.

From our tour leader, Pete, and our guide, Colette, to the rest of the crew on the boat and land, this trip was extraordinary. The Galapagos islands are stunning – an overwhelming abundance of living creatures, a stunning natural environment and skies. Pete’s planning gave us unique access to wildlife, devoid of other adventurers. Colette and Pete are authentically enthusiastic and deeply knowledgeable, making it impossible to not have the time of your life! The sign of an expert team however, is the ability to adjust and correct those little problems that inevitably come up on a trip like this – top notch! All still seems a bit dream-like. Don’t hesitate to join this team on your next adventure.

If it’s the “Wow Factor” you are seeking - look no further! This trip far exceeded my expectations - and they were pretty high to start with. Every day was packed with new and exciting sights and experiences, too many to list here! We were fortunate to have Pete with us throughout our 14 days, visiting Quito, Cotopaxi, and the Cloud Forest followed by 7 glorious days on the stunning Mary Anne brigantine yacht. Pete’s enthusiasm and knowledge of everything wildlife combined with that of our official guides, Diana, George and Collette made for a fabulous and fun trip. Don’t bother taking any books to read-“it’s not a holiday, it’s an experience!” . I returned bursting to tell friends and family all about it- and they all wanted to listen! Back on the website choosing my next trip organised and run by this amazing duo. Thank you so much Pete and Renee. You are a Top Team 👌
