Hi Gabriela

Oh my goodness, what an amazing time we had. Everything was organised so well. I cat tell you how much i appreciated all of your support both prior to going away and during all the flight problems - it was so refreshing to have that peace of mind and your reassurances. Literally couldn't be happier with the service you provided.

Many Thanks,

Good Morning Maria,

I arrived few hours ago, I spent times in the rainforest also, that’s why I just arrived at Montreal.

Unfortunately I’m not a members of Facebook, so I can’t comments my experience there. But I can tell you that the cruise in the Galapagos was well organize, and the daily planning was well organize by our Guide also. They took care of me directly at the airport, at the beginning until the end. So, I will recommend anytime my French friends from Canada to make business with your company, and especially with you.

Thank you again to make me live these  great moments !!!!

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!

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.
