“Zambo was superb: knowledgeable, enthusiastic and a very likeable guy. He had great authority but wasn't overbearing. I loved the pride he had for his homeland and he really imparted how important the preservation of the environment is to all Galapagos residents. ”

“Zambo was the greatest guide I ever could have hoped for. He was so knowledgeable, energetic, and truly wanted to ensure we had a great time. I am so so SO incredibly happy with Zambo and would recommend him to any friends that decided to go to the Galapagos.”
