CORMORANT CRUISE REVIEWS

Cruise rating: 5/5 - 9 customer reviews

Dear Lilian, we have returned from our trip and I want to thank you for everything! We had an amazing time, the Cormorant was beautiful and the crew were great. Our naturalist was fantastic and we saw so many amazing things and had so many great adventures.

Everything was well-organized, we were met for all our transfers with someone holding our name up on a sign, the hotels were very nice. You handled everything for us and answered so many questions so we were well-prepared.

Thank you so much for making our trip memorable.

Thanks again!

Diana,

Joanna and I want to thank you for the fantastic itinerary you created for us for both the Galapagos and mainland portions of our trip. We had expected the Galapagos to be awesome, which they were, but the seven days in the Andes far exceeded our expectations. Gabriel was a great guide and Marcelo a wonderful driver. We all felt like family by the end of our time together. Your lineup of activities, overnight stays, and restaurants could not have been better. We will give a very favorable review on TripAdvisor, and also recommend your services to our friends.

Dear Veronica,

Thank you very much for your e-mail. I appreciate to hear from you, and I was planning on sending you some feedback.

In short: Our Ecuador and Galapagos trip exceeded all our expectations, and ended up being a magic adventure for us.

The first two nights in Quito were interesting and fun, and we enjoyed the Hotel Casona de la Ronda a lot. The street and near surroundings were very charming, and we even ended up buying hats from the local hat maker in the same street. The transport to and from every airport, hotel and boat worked out just perfect, by the way. Drivers and guides were very nice people, and we really appreciated meeting them all. So thanks to you! :-)

And then; Galapagos. What an adventure, Veronica. We were very warmly welcome by the staff from the Cormorant, and they all took very well care of us the whole week. We are so satisfied with having a full week and not only 4-5 nights, and we feel that we were very fortunate to explore the very best of what Galapagos has to offer. From lots of beautiful birds; finches, doves, frigate birds, the three types of boobies and even flamingos to mention some, to different types of marvellous, plenty and cool looking iguanas and not the least; the very playful sea lions and elegant turtles which we were lucky to snorkle with every day. Wow. We were amazed every day during the week on the Cormorant. Besides the most wonderful wildlife and diverse landscapes, we enjoyed the excellent food and service onboard, and also the company of interesting and nice people we travelled together with. The score must be more than 10 out of 10 for this week! :-)

The trip could not have been any better, and we thank you so, so much for all the help with the planning of all details - large and small. Thank you again!

I hope this gave you some convincing insight in how satisfied we are with the trip, and thank you again for having contributed in the most professional way! :-)

Wishing you a nice day in beautiful Quito!

Hello Salome,

Our trip was a classic. my grandson and i enjoyed the entire experience from quito through lima. our guides and drivers were very knowledgeable and informative. The crew and accommodations of the cormorant exemplified how to tour the Galapagos Islands.

In total, the history and scenery were well worth the cost. my coulple of hundred photos taken paled to the 3000+ that jared took.

I would highly recommend your company and thank you for your help in putting the package together.

I just watched. Thank you again.

Dear Marcia and GalapagosIslands.com,

We cannot say enough wonderful things about this trip!

The boat, The Cormorant, the crew and the naturalist, George Garcia were all excellent in their services, accommodations, and nature information.

I had requested this specific trip so that we could celebrate my husband's 50th birthday and the crew did not let us down. On his birthday we arrived back to the boat after a morning of snorkeling and the entire room was decorated with balloons, streamers, and the towels were formed into a birthday cake! This was so special. Beyond my expectations. The main dinning lounge was also decorated with balloons and streamers. All of the other guest were wonderful too, helping us celebrate all day long.

Galapagos Islands.com staff were efficient and available to answer any question. All of our special requests were provided. There was noting that was a problem.

Thank you for a wonderful trip. You are welcome to post this review on your new web site. I would also be happy to post something separately.
Sincerely,

Lilian,

I just returned from the best trip of my life.....and I thank you for making everything run so smoothly and easily.

I would recommend GalapagosIslands.com - because of YOU - to everyone I know! From the pick-up at the airport to the drop-off at the end, and everything in-between,it all went efficiently, professionally and perfectly. Actually, the tremendous care I received started with my first encounter with you and continued right up to the end.

You were there for me 100% of the way - answering my questions quickly and arranging an idyllic vacation.

The Cormorant is an exceptional vessel and the staff and Byron (our naturalist) were caring, well trained and outstanding at their jobs!

Thank you, again, Lilian.
Sincerely.

Lillian,

The cruise was brilliant!

Harry Jimenez the guide was great and the crew were excellent. The itinerary was extremely varied and interesting, the food was very good and the Cormorant very spacious and practical in every way.

We also met two nieces of the Cormorant owner ,who were both delightful.

Could you pass on to their uncle how pleased we were with the cruise too, please.

Salud,
