GALAVEN CRUISE REVIEWS

Cruise rating: 3/5 - 7 customer reviews

Lilian,

I wanted to thank you very much for helping us plan our incredible trip. It was fantastic.

The cruise could not have been better. The crew was excellent. Eric and Pato were incredible guides. The food was great, the cabins small but kept neat and clean, everything was organized and well run! The itinerary was perfect and we saw everything we wanted to see. It was the trip of a life time and we were so impressed with the service you all provided.

Daniela met us at the airport and she was wonderful. Helpful and professional. She helped me get cabin 5 as I had been promised. I was very impressed when we arrived in the Galapagos and the guides knew of the cabin situation and had made the change.

As you can tell, I have only good things to say about your company and the cruise.

Thank you for all your help. Please let all the others know how impressed and pleased we were.

All The Best,

Dear Veronica,

Our trip to Galapagos was superb. Our contact at the Quito airport found us, spoke perfect English and got all necessary paperwork done perfectly. We were very happy with the Galaven Expedition boat. The 2 guides were excellent, the boat very clean and the food amazingly high in both the quality and variety. We booked our trip at the last minute and were so pleased at how smoothly everything went. Thank you so much.

Hello Gabriela,

Want to thank you for all of your assistance in making our travel plans for Ecuador. It was a wonderful trip for all four of us. We especially enjoyed the Galapagos, and the Galaven -- it was really memorable. While in the highlands we took several tours, including Ingapirca, equator, etc. and the Amazon experience was really interesting. Thank you again for all of your help.

Veronica,

Our trip on Galaven was better than we could have hoped. The crew and guides were very helpful and good fun. Nothing was too hard for them. Franklin the younger guide was our favourite as he is widely read and passionate about the islands. The itinerary was busy but inclusive and we saw many lovely and interesting creatures and landscapes. Snorkeling gave more creatures to wonder at.

We will recommend this to our friends.

Hello Rosa,

We are on our way back to the USA. Just wanted to let you know we had a wonderful time on our Galapagos Trip. It was everything we had imagined. The Galaven was great also. Thank you so much for being such a big part in helping to make our trip work out perfectly. I will definitely contact you if I choose to return to Ecuador.

Thanks,

Hi Veronica,

Thanks for your email. Our trip on the Galaven was perfect. We had a wonderful time thanks to the great crew and guides. Billy and Enrique (our guides) were fantastic. We came home with over 1000 pictures of the birds and animals and made some great friends too.

Everything at the airport and with transfer to the boat went smoothly. Our cabin was very nice and quite spacious for a boat.

Meals were very good. The only thing that could be improved upon were the desserts - didn't always satisfy that "sweet tooth" after a meal.

All in all we were very pleased with our trip and I would highly recommend.

Thanks for all your help over the past few months. All the best

Hi Pablo,

The Galaven cruise to the Galapagos was wonderful! I enjoyed the daily activities, hikes and snorkeling.

The food was good, the staff were friendly and knowledgeable and the accommodations were very nice. I enjoyed the luxury and cleanliness of the boat along the people joining us on the cruise.

Thank you again for your kind assistance. It is a trip my daughter and I will remember for a lifetime.
