Galapagos Islands Photography & what to expect:

Each day will include excursions on different islands and most days will also include snorkeling opportunities to enjoy swimming with sea lions, sea turtles and many species of fish. Underwater camera may come very handy!

A few reviews from clients on my October 2021 Galapagos Trip:

Galapagos Islands, October 13-23 2021 Tour:

"It was truly a wonderful experience to meet and share such great comradery with the group.  This was truly one of the best photography tours I have ever experienced. Thanks to Krisztina who has the awesome ability to make everyone feel welcome and right at home with the group, the tour was a smashing success.  Not only did her dynamic personality make for a warm and friendly experience for the tour participants, it also infected the Galapagos tour guide and the Tip Top II crew as well.

I look forward to another dynamic and exciting tour with Krisztina in Costa Rica this December. Best wishes, Leonard J."


"Galapagos Trip October 2021
An amazing photographer & group leader. I am typically a solo traveler but I really enjoyed being with this group and much of that had to do with Krisztina's personality. The trip was planned perfectly with all needs taken care of. The boat chosen (The Tip Top II thru the Rolf Wittmer Tip Top Fleet) was excellent as it is very comfortable way to spend time at sea! I shot over 22,000 photos and a couple hundred videos. I loved every minute and plan on doing more trips with KS Nature Photography!'



'I cant say enough how wonderful Krisztina @ KS Nature Photography is! I travel very often and usually alone as I don't typically like groups, however Krisztina's personality really made it fun and special. She changed my perspective on traveling with groups. She makes sure everyone is taken care of and having a good time. She is also an amazing photographer and I plan on doing more trips with her! I also love that she is conservation minded first. This is so important and one of the many reasons I will travel with her again. Loved the trip and strongly recommend you get on a trip with her!!'
