“This was our second trip with Link Experiences and couldn’t be happier. Based on our earlier experience with them, we gave them complete control of our family’s trip to the Galapagos. (Our friends independently researched Link’s proposed itinerary against their usual excellent company and decided to come with us.) The trip was fantastic.”
