Aida Maria Reviews

Comments and recommendations received on this Galapagos cruise:

Hello Maria,

We had an amazing trip in the Galapagos! Thanks for everything, I really appreciated you answering my questions quickly by e-mail in the weeks before we left. Everything was perfect in the cruise: the guide was really interesting, the itinerary was ideal, the food on board better than what we expected.

I hope to go back to Ecuador in the next years to visit he continent! There is much more to see!

Thanks again, I am really happy to have chosen Columbus travels to book the cruise. And you really made a difference!

Have a nice week!

Fernanda,

Everything was perfect; we couldn't have been any happier with the cruise or the hotel in Santa Cruz. This was the best vacation we've ever taken; everything ran so smoothly, and the Galapagos are amazing!

Thank you so much for your help.
