Dear Diana,

My husband and I have returned home to Australia now, and I would just like to thank you for helping us to organise a truly wonderful tour of Galapagos. We had a wonderful time. The replacement boat, Seaman Journey, was excellent. The naturalist guide, Marco Vizcaino, was fantastic. The whole crew was great; the food very good; the cabin extremely comfortable; and all the other guests were very nice. It would have been difficult to improve anything. I can highly recommend this boat and guide for any future clients you may be in touch with.

Thank you for your excellent and very professional service at every stage of our planning for this tour. You did a wonderful job!! I will certainly recommend you and your company to friends who may be interested in touring Galapagos.

best wishes,
