Dear Daniela - thank you for your email. I just returned to my Boise, Idaho home yesterday afternoon and I was planning on emailing you as soon as I got settled back in. I want to let you know that my Ecuador, Galapagos, and Peru adventures were very rewarding and a perfect adventure for me.

Your assistance in the planning and arranging all of the details made the trip very easy and comfortable. The time with Anna Maria for my first tour to the hot springs was just what I needed to begin my travels in Ecuador and the Galapagos. Once Kelly arrived we were able to get around Quito and enjoyed our time there.

We got to the islands without any problems and met Thomas the day before our cruise began. The cruise was wonderful and we had loads of fun with the guide and the crew on the boat. Once the cruise was over, I made my way to Peru and from the moment I walked out of the airport the company that you secured for my 'solo trip' were always on time and very helpful. I never felt like I would have any problems and I didn't.

Thank you again so very much for all that you did to make our adventure a very memorable one.

Cheers, Brenda

Hi Veronica,

Our trip went very smoothly and we had an amazing time. The Hotel Vieja Cuba was charming, staff attentive and breakfast delicious. Also the Aida Maria and its crew were great, as well as the food. Our nature guide Ruben was very knowledgeable and friendly. Thank you for booking us this terrific trip. We do hope to return to see more of the Galapagos and I will contact you.

Thanks again,

Cruise went perfect.

The guide Franklin was fabulous. Crew looked after us 24/7...really good. Food was varied and interesting. We couldn't have gone without the wetsuits and Franklin took all respoonsibility for mailing them back.

Thank you for all your help and direction. The only thing I didn't know was how rough the sea was and I had to up my doses of motion sickness meds to cover it.
