Hello Vero!

The Isabella II was wonderful! Exceeded our expectations. We think it needs a trip advisor review site as does your agency. Just fantastic!!!!

Also, the Galapagos Suites Hotel on Santa Cruz was outstanding as well. So clean, fresh and such wonderful service!

Hi Lorena,

I just wanted to say Thanks again for a wonderful trip. We loved every minute of the trip. Quito was such a wonderful surprise and the trip to Otavalo was fantastic. Our guide Daniela could not have been nicer. She was terrific!

The Galapagos was amazing. Everything went smoothly and the boat was very nice. The staff were great too. The naturalists were excellent. (There were 3 of them and only 30 people on the ship)

I would absolutely recommend your company and services if any one needs to plan a trip to Ecuador.

Best wishes to you and your new baby.

Dear Lilian,

Firstly, I must apologise for taking so long to write and thank you! We wanted to say a very big thank you to you for organising our holiday in Ecuador and the Galapagos in December.

It really was fantastic and everything worked out very smoothly - all the connections were good, the guides were brilliant, the hotels superb, the landscapes and fauna/flora absolutely amazing - it was just perfect [no complaints!].

We will tell all our friends to book through you, without hesitation!

Thank you again.
Kind regards
