Just felt like giving you a short feedback about our cruise!

Yes you were right we had a wonderful time!!

Our expectations were exceeded, the boat, the weather, all the animals, not to forget the wonderful food onboard and all the people who made this trip so amazing.

Especially to mention: Cruise Director Miscell, tour guide Carlos, dinghy captain Angel and our enchanting cook, also we were really spoiled with the other lovely 12 guys of our group!

Thanks again for making this wonderful journey possible, very last minute...

Wishing you only the best for the future, have a wonderful christmas season and a good year 2019!!!

Dear Diana:

I can't thank you enough for the most wonderful tour you put together for me and my friend, Linda Taylor. EVERY PART of the trip was beyond my expectations. Each person who picked us up was THERE,on time, easy to spot, professional and friendly. Our accommodations were wonderful and the included breakfast buffets were amazing! The Alya (catamaran) was spacious & modern with a staff that went out of its way to help. Mishel and Jaime were especially helpful and accommodating. The food was so PLENTIFUL and delicious that I swore I would never eat another bite (but always did!) Carlos, our guide in the Galapagos, was so very knowledgeable with a great command of English.

In Quito, I expected to be with a group on a bus for our suggested day trips. However, we had a driver, Stalin, for just the two of us!!! He was extremely helpful, accommodating, knowledgeable and fun!!! Each day was filled with something new and different. The trips to Mindo Cloud Forest, Colonial Quito, Otavalo Market and the thermal baths were perfect choices.

Stalin was a safe driver (especially important in Quito!) and stopped for special photo ops which was another great aspect of having an individual driver!

Then there's YOU! You put together a wonderful program according to my wishes, answered all my MANY questions and coordinated a trip of a lifetime that ran smoothly without a hitch! THANK YOU doesn't go far enough to let you know how much I appreciate all you did. I will definitely recommend you to friends.

!!!Muchissimas gracias!!!

Hello Veronica,

From the moment we were picked up from Quito to return to Galapagos airport it was beyond our expectations . Carlos our guide was amazing his knowledge beyond doubt so very friendly and answered all questions and looked after us so well and gave us an invaluable introduction to the various Islands we visited. The Alia was excellent our small group were so well suited we all got along and became good friends experiencing the islands and activities together. The crew were excellent and attended to everybody's needs and requests and the food delicious . I would certainly recommend to friends and colleagues.

Thank you

Dear Veronica,

Thank you for your mail which served as a reminder for me to send you a big THANK YOU for organizing such a wonderful trip for us.

We thoroughly enjoyed all aspects of it and were most pleasantly impressed by the quality of all accommodation, guiding and service!

Please also say thank you to Toni for him meeting us at the airport and guiding us through the formalities.

The Napo Wildlife Centre was a very special experience and we thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Our guide david was so knowledgable and together with Eduardo, the naturalist went to great lengths to spot the often very elusive bird and wildlife.

For me the most memorable experience though was the trip to the Galapagos Islands. The Alia catamaran is pure luxury with fantastic food and a very attentive crew. Maria Ramos was our naturalist guide and she is just outstanding in her knowledge and enthusiasm for this very special nature. She organized activities every day which included up to two land excursions and at least one or even two snorkeling trips.

That really kept us busy and helped to assure that not all the good food was adding to our waist lines!

All guests got along well with each other and we are likely to stay in touch with a couple of them. The cook even produced a cake for my birthday and I couldn't have wished for a more perfect birthday!

With best regards, also to Toni.
