Hi Veronica,

The whole experience was fantastic thank you.

Everything ran very efficiently, without any problems.

The crew & guide were brilliant, always very helpful when you needed it, and left you alone when they weren’t needed.

The food on board was excellent, enhancing a truly once in a lifetime experience.

All the services in Guayaquil ran smoothly, with very accommodating transfer staff.

I would highly recommend you to anyone.

Please pass on my thanks to all concerned, and maybe see you all again sometime!!

We just returned back from our vacation in Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands and my husband and I would like to thank you very much for arranging everything. We had a wonderful time --exceeding all expectations and we had absolutely no problems during the whole time.

Santiago was great and took care of all of our ground transportation needs and answered all of our questions and even gave us information on what to do and what to eat during our stay in Quito. The Casa Aliso was very good and the staff was helpful. Our cruise on The Beagle was so much fun and we had a wonderful field guide (Diego Iglesias) and the best crew to take care of us. We took so many pictures and learned a lot about the islands. It was a trip of a lifetime and again, we thank you for your expert help and advice.

Kind regards,
