Dear Veronica,

We returned from our trip to the Galapagos on Thursday, and I intended to write to you in order to thank you for helping us organize the trip. Everything was excellent, we loved our stay on both Archipell catamarans and found your organization of transfers and everything impeccable. When the first cruise ended at Baltra, we found someone ready to pick us up and set us on our way to Puerto Ayora in a comfortable taxi. And we were very impressed to find a taxi ready to take us from our hotel in Puerto Ayora to the pier when the day came to board the second cruise. We did not expect it, and appreciate your taking care of all these details.

We realize that there is much more in Ecuador than the Galapagos, and when we will be ready for a second trip to your country, you can count on us getting in touch with you again. Thanks again, and best wishes for everything!

Hello Daniela, I hope you are well.

I just wanted to say thank you very much for all your help with our booking for our trip to the Galapagos.

We had an amazing time and we are so pleased that we chose the Archipel catamaran. We spent a lot of time planning the trip, choosing a travel company to use and choosing the right boat and we made the right decision. We had a great crew who took care of us and were all very friendly - had some fantastic food on board and our guide was great too - very knowledgeable. We were taken care of as soon as we arrived at the airport in Quito and then when we landed in the Galapagos. We didn't have to worry about a thing as everything was taken care of.

We got to see as much of the beautiful Galapagos islands that we wanted and have some wonderful memories of such a lovely place.

We also met some lovely people on board the boat and we were all sad to leave at the end of the week. I would be very happy to do a review for you if you

Thank you again.

Hi Lilian,

We want to thank you for organizing an outstanding trip to the Galapagos aboard the Archipell I. Everything went very smoothly and your representatives were always on time to meet us. We certainly will return to Ecuador and one day will bring out grandchildren to the Galapagos.

Please convey to your employer how much we appreciated your service.
