We've been on 3 Nat Geo/Lindblad (NGL) trips and this was by far the most disappointing. This was recommended to us from many who were on the Epic Galapagos trip as a "must". So we were looking forward to this. ...

A Lewis and Clark Journey. Great time for the active adults.

This was our 4th trip on a Lindblad/National Geographic ship, and the 4th great experience we've had with them. Our journey started with a 3 day shore extension to the cloud forest in Costa Rica with a Lindblad ...

Trip of a lifetime

We have nothing but wonderful things to say about this trip. It was like being in a luxury resort for a week, except the scenery came to you. We spent most of our time on deck or off the shop on outings. We were off ...
