Dear Grace,

We are back home after a remarkable time in your country of Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands. Thank you for all of your help to secure our round trip flights to the Galapagos from Quito, our transfers to and from the airports and the cruise on the Santa Cruz. All of the arrangements were handled beautifully without incident. It was an exciting expedition and our naturalist guide, Lolita, was so informative and charming. I would be happy to recommend your company to anyone.
