We were very excited to travel with our family, including 3 kids aged 7 - 11, plus family friends to Galapagos with Pete and Renee in December. The close proximity to the animals and the knowledge and enthusiasm that Pete and Renee brought to the trip was instrumental in making each interaction fun and educational while deepening our appreciation of the Galapagos. Everything was taken care of on the journey so we could relax and enjoy nature at every turn. We were delighted with once in a lifetime opportunities such as watching a pod of 300 dolphins leap around the sail boat as curious about us as we were about them and snorkeling with sea lions, marine iguanas and turtles. Besides the incredible nature, Pete and Renee are amazing story tellers and kept the group of 6 kids engaged the whole trip. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them as knowledgeable, enthusiastic and entertaining guides for the Galapagos!

What a team are Pete and Renee! My journey to the Galapagos with them has been an exceptional and transforming experience! Their attention to detail and tending of the groundwork to travel made the journey a breeze! Their experience within the National Park and choice of vessels and crew and guides provided a seamless experience traveling the many islands we were able to visit. The culinary experience aboard was superb.
Their understanding of the islands and reefs- from the extraordinary Natural History to the challenges and accomplishments of protecting this unique and treasured assemblage of islands provided days of learning and adventures. On land and in the water!
I am so grateful for Pete and Renee’s talent, unwavering commitment to conservation, desire to educate and their ability to facilitate amazing days of adventure and learning all the while having so much fun!!!

If you want to experience the "real" Madagascar - the people, the wildlife, the birdlife, the culture - you absolutely must visit Madagascar with Pete and Reneé. Traveling with them is extra special because they truly know and love the country in all its splendor and are excited to share their knowledge and personal experiences with you. And, if you're a photography enthusiast, like me, the added plus is learning from Pete, a photography pro. I can't tell you how fun it is to compare those hard-to-get shots with him and banter over who got the better shot. On very rare occasions, score one for the enthusiast!
Our local guides were awesome, the accommodations were fabulous, the food was terrific (I'm a vegetarian) and the transport was very comfortable. Every detail was A+! But, what makes visiting Madagascar with Pete and Reneé so special is their love of Madagascar and the joy they get from sharing it with you.
Pete, Reneé, thank you for making this Madagascar expedition extra memorable!!!

This is not a trip for anyone who likes beach holidays. Pete lives up to his boast that you will be the first people on the islands in the morning and the last off in the evening. And that means we saw more wildlife than other groups and also had the benefit of Pete and Renee's extensive knowledge and experience. Their ability to predict what would happen next meant that we were in exactly the right place at the right moment to capture amazing animal and bird behaviour. We're already looking for our next trip.

This trip is one of my fam's first that centered around learning & experiencing nature and wildlife and boy did we experience it properly. It wouldn't be too much far off to describe this trip as Galapagos Bootcamp. Our group was composed of a wide range of age group and backgrounds and to make every effort to fit the itinerary work for each and every one of us is simply amazing in their know-how, knowledge & years of experience/expertise gained over the years of leading such expeditions in the area & elsewhere.
Special thanks to Pete and Renee for making this trip so very special for my family.
