Comments and recommendations received on this Galapagos cruise:
Hi Carolina, we're back at home with very fond memories of our vacation on the islands.
As far as feedbacks go, I've only positive ones, I really appreciate your professionalism and courtesy.
Italy, August 2018
After the cruise, we continued with our trip and arrived back home only two days ago. So only now we are able to comment and reply.
As for the feedback for Columbus Travel:
The cruise coordination was made via the internet and it was our first time to book something "bigger" (much more expensive) than booking a hotel room. We were a bit worried if everything will be ordered and prepared as promised.
Finally, when time came - EVERYTHING WAS EXACTLY AS PLANNED AND EXACTLY AS WAS EXPLAINED BY YOU.
Your explanations, coordination, organizations and patience to our "non-ending" questions and requests, were way over the norm we expected.
Definitely, if we will be asked for a travel agency, our recommendation will be Columbus Travel with many good ones for Carolina Montenegro.
Needless to say that the Galapagos cruise was something extraordinary that will be in our minds for a long time.

Hi Maria, thank you so much for your email!
Our trip with the Beluga was fantastic! We thought the boat was quite nice, the staff incredible and David Paez specifically set an extremely high bar.
He was very kind, helpful and knowledgeable about the Galapagos. Everything went smoothly from the start to the finish and we felt so fortunate to be on the boat we landed on. Thank you so much for all of the help, we really appreciate it. You were also a fantastic agent - you provided prompt replies and were always very helpful. Plus, you got us on an exceptional boat with an amazing crew – all in a short time period.
We are planning on writing positive reviews for Columus Travel and David's company on Trip Advisor, can you please remind us what that was called?
Thanks again Maria, the Galapagos portion of our trip was a real highlight!!

We had a very good time on our trip. Everything went smoothly, including the transfers to the airport. We were able to meet up with the naturalist from the Beluga without any problems. Also, we were very pleased with the Beluga. The naturalist and the whole crew did a great job. The food was good and abundant. I was concerned that the time in the Galapagos was really too short, but my husband and I agreed afterward it was a good length trip for us. We appreciated your help finding this particular cruise in the exact time frame we needed. And the itinerary -- although short -- was good. Every place we visited had something special to offer. During the snorkeling, I was able to see rays, sea stars, hammerhead sharks and lots of fish. The way the crew watched us from the small boats made me feel safe doing the snorkeling. Thank you for everything. I will click and link and write a review. If I have a chance to visit Ecuador again, I will certainly contact you.

Gracias por tu explicacion de lo de la devolucion de impuestos, no tenia claro como era. No tiene sentido hacer nada ahora, asi que gracias una vez mas y los tendremos en cuenta para viajes en el futuro
Hi Vero –
The Swissotel was lovely. And we would recommend the Beluga to all of our friends – the staff & Darwin our guide were awesome.
Thanks again for everything!

Sorry, for the late message to you. Lise and I wanted to thank you for the wonderful trip. Lise usually sends the e-mails out but she has been very busy and yesterday she left for Qatar to do a presentation to the ministry of collages. The Beluga Boat was fine. I have left several posts on Trip Advisor recommending you and your company.
Thanks again for your effort,
