ARCHIPEL II CRUISE REVIEWS

Cruise rating: 2.9/5 - 3 customer reviews

Dear Elizabeth,

On behalf of our entire group, thank you for your assistance in making our fabulous Galapagos trip aboard the Archipell I possible. You stuck with us for over two years and helped us individually and collectively put the trip together. Thank you for meeting our group in Quito and facilitating the transfer to the islands. Thank you for help with extra nights at the NH Collection, airport transportation, and COVID testing.

Omar Medina, our guide, charmed us all. The scientists in our group were particularly impressed with his knowledge and excellent presentations along the way. The video that he put together for us on the last night of our trip was amazing. Both of the people in our group who had been to the Islands previously said this trip was better, because of Omar. He is a congenial, excellent guide.

The other members of the crew were equally impressive. The food was delicious, and I know we were a challenging group to cook for, given the number of vegetarians among us. Our cabins were well kept.

It was an amazing trip of a lifetime.

Thank you, thank you, thank you.

I want to add my thanks as well for a beautifully orchestrated trip. Bonnie has detailed a number of the wonderful features of the trip, and I fully endorse her sentiments.
