Comments and recommendations received on this Galapagos cruise:
Thank you for all of your help. We had a wonderful time on the Anahi. And Juan and Patricio were excellent for our land program. I will be posting a positive review of Columbus Travel on TripAdvisor (which is where I "discovered" Columbus :).
We were 100% satisfied with everything else. And again, Juan and Patricio were terrific (also Elvis). Good work, Pablo!
It was the best trip we have ever been on!
Everything ran so smoothly and the people were fabulous. We loved our tour guide Roberto. He was so informative and very funny! The people on the boat were fabulous and took such good care of us. We could not have asked for a better service. All the animals and the volcanoes we hiked on were incredible! Thank you for taking such good care of us and we will definitely recommend Columbus travel to anyone!

Maria: Just wanted to let you know what a WONDERFUL, WONDERFUL trip we had and to thank you for ALL of your assistance in making this trip of a live time come true. My wife and I could not have asked for anything more and the Galapagos Islands were all that we were hoping for and much more. The "Anahi", and it's captain and crew were just fantastic and our naturalist "Galo" was second to no one, he was just superb. We were able to snorkel with everything I wanted to snorkel with and more and we were also able to see all of the wonderful wildlife that the islands have to offer. Such a great trip and you and Columbus Travel are to be commended for doing such a great job, so THANK YOU once again for working with us. And I look forward to working with you again on our next adventure and hopefully soon.
Sincerely, Tim and Mihee Jordan

I will just email you my comments here since I don't do facebook.
You were extremely responsive in any of the questions I had and very accommodating in figuring out a payment method.
I loved the trip. The boat/crew/food was all excellent. My only comment as to the agenda, no where did it let us know we would be snorkelling 2x/day and hiking 2x/day. I LOVED that it was so active, but the description did not indicate activity level. Don Milligan and his wife are signed up to go next year on the same boat (different agenda) because of my feedback.
Also, I was surprised at how cold the water was – even though it was mentioned that wetsuits were available – some explanation about the artic currents would be helpful.

Maria: My friend and I are back from our vacation in Quito and the Galapagos. It was an amazing trip. All the arrangements you made resulted in a smooth, worry-free holiday.
We loved the quaint hotels you recommended in Quito and in Puerto Ayora, they were exactly what we like and in perfect locations. The cruise that you recommended on the Anahi was also perfect, we were especially pleased with the activities and the attention to detail by Captain Tony Jil and Guide Roberto Quintana King.
I especially appreciated you sending my dietary restrictions and special needs ahead of time to the hotels and the cruise ship, and how accommodating they were.
Maria, we would be pleased to recommend Columbus Travel to others. Feel free to include this review in your website, and publish my name.
We had a wonderful time in the Galapagos. It felt like being on a different planet. Our guide Vivie was amazing!
We stayed on a beautiful catamaran.It was the most extraordinary and incredible vacation we had.
Thank you for assisting in making this time so special.
We want to thank you very much for organizing for us the truly fantastic holiday on the Galapagos islands. The cruise on board of Anahi catamaran exceeded by far our expectations - our guide Andres was great and the crew could not be more helpful in everything. Everything was organised perfectly with only one remark: on the last day the flight back to Guayaguil was booked so early that we did not manage to see the last point on the list i.e. Darwin Research Center on Santa Cruz. Our guide offered to do a private tour but we would have to rush it and start very early to make it to the Baltra Airport on time. But we consider it a small loss compared to all other experiences during the trip. I can only say this: we certainly hope this was not "once in a lifetime" experience and that we get to return to Galapagos in a few years.
Once again many thanks for putting this together for us. We had a dream vacation, indeed!
Wishing you all the best.
Traveled on the Anahi
We had a wonderful tour, and the Anahi in the Galapagos was a great choice! I would recommend it to anyone.
We were very pleased with our guide and driver, both were extremely competent and professional, and genuinely interested in making sure our trip went well.
Accommodations were very good... the Hacienda at La Cienega was perhaps a little tired but made up for it in character and history. Meals throughout where included were universally good.
Overall, a great trip and everything worked out as planned. We just wish we had decided to add a few more days onto our cruise... we didn't want to leave!

Francisco, we returned home from Galapagos safely and propmptly without any delay.
Our Galapagos trip was most enjoyable. The boat was wonderful and its crew was just
very friendly and helpful. We have no deficiency to report. We had two
different guides for the week and both were very good, giving
us information and answering our questions.
In the evening, on a TV projection, both showed us their pictures and videos that
they had taken during our day trips. That was very nice reminder of the
The transport to and from Galapagos was prompt and without delay.
We spent three more days in the Tandayapa Lodge in the Ecuador cloud forest. The lodge was very much to our liking, simple and clean accommodation, and long trails for walking. The birds were magnificent and the guides as knowledgeable as the Galapaos guides on the Anahi boat. You can recommend this lodge for any nature and real bird lover. One suggestion when booking this lodge is is that you have to hire a guide ahead of time. Without a guide or a car it is difficult to see and identify the many birds.
Should we ever come back to Ecuador we will again ask for your help.Sincerely, Ursula Jander

We did have an excellent time on our Galapagos trip aboard the Anahi. Thank you for your help with all of the changes.
I wanted to write and tell you thank you for all the help you gave me in srtting up my trip to the Galapagos. It was fantastic! I am still in awe of what I did see and experience. The accomadations were perfect, the crew on the Anahi were exceptional and our guide was great. The hotel Anahi in Quito is a gem, wonderful people.
Thanks so much, I would recommend you and your agency to anyone.
Good Morning Vero,
Thank you for organising our great trip to the Galapagos. Anahi was a wonderful vessel and the crew and guide Roberto were excellent. Weather was perfect and sea water just the right temperature. What more could we want We swam with sea lion, giant turtles and even up close to penguins / amazing. The bird life was so beautiful. Only 7 on our trip and we all had a goo time together A lovely surprise to be picked up on our return from the trip and taken to our hotel. Your driver even gave one of the young guys a lift to our hotel

Traveled on the Anahi
The trip was great, the Swiss Hotel was super and the boat was good. The food was only fair on the boat, but the guide was excellent and a fun group of younger people. The transfer driver was great as well.
Thanks for your help, it went well!!
