The International Galapagos Tour Operators Association (IGTOA) and the Ecuadorian Association of Galapagos Tour Operators (ASOGAL) have undertaken a campaign to promote the best training and coaching both in natural history and languages, for the Galapagos Naturalist Guides. Metropolitan Touring fully supports this campaign. Metropolitan Touring’s guides are Naturalists, who have undergone a thorough process of selection and training and are constantly improving their skills under the direction of the ship’s Expedition Managers and the “in-situ” coaching by our Galápagos Expedition Manager.
Our team of Naturalist Guides is formed by 12 full-time exclusive Metropolitan Touring guides plus a team of free-lancers, that are constantly being trained by our staff on board, in order to achieve the Galapagos Expedition Experience that we want to convey to our guests. We are eagerly awaiting the next promotion of Galapagos Naturalist Guides who will complete their studies and internship at the Galapagos National Park by the end of January 2006. The best ones are to be incorporated to our Galápagos team. During the first three quarters of 2005, guest satisfaction rates with the Galapagos Expedition component show 95.57% for the MV SANTA CRUZ Galapagos Cruise and 98.92% for Yacht ISABELA II Galapagos Cruise. We are proud of our Expedition Staff!
