Dear Maria Soledad,
Thank you for putting our trip together. It all worked out very well and we enjoyed ourselves very much. The guides were terrific and the the drivers outstanding! We thoroughly enjoyed your selections of places to visit! The Amazon was better than we anticipated and Otavalo and Hacienda La Alegría were great surprises. Of course, Los Galapagos was sensational! It was so good to have someone meet us at each arrival! We were impressed.
Isabel may have mentioned we all three got sick, but it lasted about a day and we were able to keep going. Please tell Isabel we were very happy with her expert advice!
Thanks again for everything,
It is now nearly a month since we returned from our holiday in Ecuador and the Galapagos. We had a really wonderful time. Both the cruise you arranged on Coral 2 and the train trip were memorable experiences. We cannot thank you enough for arranging it all so efficiently. The company's representatives and our tour guides were first class and added considerably to our enjoyment. We will unhesitatingly recommend you and your company to anyone who wishes to do a similar trip. We were particularly impressed by the easy communication with you and your office and the speed with which our enquiries were answered. Thank you again for providing us with a great adventure.

For more than 30 years my wife and I have been taking friends on educational trips through China, around South America and to Mexico and Central America. The travel originally started as university student group trips, but after retirement we continued to travel with friends. The groups usually consisted of fifteen to 25 adults but last November we traveled for a month with 33 friends to visit the Galapagos Islands, the Andes, Quito and the Guayaquil area of Ecuador. This was one of the most beautiful and fascinating trips we have ever taken.
The travel was coordinated by Columbus Travel of Quito. I learned about the company on line but was unsure of its reliability until we worked with them. Gabriela Fuentes at Columbus Travel was very knowledgeable of Ecuador and the Galapagos and suggested a spectacular vessel the Coral I in the Galapagos and an ideal roads itinerary around Ecuador. She was always pleasant and quick to respond to questions about the trip.
Our seasoned travelers this trip were well educated, many of them were scientists and medical professionals who could appreciate the scenery and wildlife of Ecuador. They continually praised the vessel Captain Edwardo Vinicio and the crew of the Coral I, the Andean itinerary and the accommodations throughout. All the personnel on the vessel and during the land trip were superb; we had a great bus driver and knowledgeable naturalist guides who knew the wildlife and the geological formations in great depth.

Good morning Gabriela,
Our trip at the Galapagos was great - we really had a fun time. We arrived home safe and sound.
Thank you so much for all your help - our experience with Columbus Travel was awesome. You are very well organized and our travel went smoothly. I appreciate all the communication you provided and all the questions you answered for us.
Thank you again for your assistance in creating a wonderful trip for us to the Galapagos Islands!
USA, September 2017
We would like to pass on our many thanks to your company and in particular Maria Soledad who organised our trip to the Galapagos Islands in September.
We found Maria helpful, friendly, informative and very prompt with her emails and communications.
Our Spanish is poor and Maria's excellent English also made everything so much easier.
We will certainly recommend Columbus Travel Ecuador to our friends travelling to South America.

finally got around to this. Your trip started a 7 week round world holiday for us & it was brilliant. Thank you for all your help.
Below is my post on trip advisor.
Actually it did not want to connect to your site review for some reason so I did it under CORAL

I just arrived back to Quito today after an amazing two-week time in Galapagos!
Everything was fantastic and went according to plan, even the change of plans we talked about on the last day of the cruise was smooth, and the company was very helpful to arrange the dive for me in Kicker Rock that day.
All in all it was a fantastic experience, and I again wish to thank you for all of the arrangements and the honest good work,
I will certainly recommend your agency in the future! :-)
Best regards and thanks again,
CORAL I & II
I've returned to Reno and dug through the paperwork that had accumulated. I wanted to take this opportunity to make a few comments.
First, you and Columbus travel did a great job. Thank you.So you know, the Swissotel was magnificent. The staff was great, the accommodations wonderful - all in all a credit to Ecuador and a very good way to start and end the trip. I'll send you a copy of my letter to the general manager.
The Coral 1 also did a good job. I would be happy to recommend it to others considering a trip to the islands. We were also fortunate to have been assigned some really great guides. I came to understand the Park Service itself assigns the guides. We were lucky to have gotten a couple of their more senior people both of whom were assigned at the last minute - Victor Hugo and Jonathan Aguas S.

Traveled on the Coral
This is a long overdue note!
I wanted to let you know that we had a fantastic trip and that I was very impressed with how smoothly all the details worked out. You had everyone organized very well and there was always someone to meet us and take care of the details for us.
The hotels were great and the Coral II excellent as well. I particularly wanted to single out the lead naturalist on board, Lobo, who was just amazing. His knowledge and passion for sharing his knowledge was truly remarkable. We met some others later on the trip who had followed the same itinerary in a different boat, and in comparing notes, found that our experience was a superior one entirely due to the efforts of Lobo.
Also, I have to say that the Royal Palm hotel was just amazing and comparable to hotels costing much much more. Truly great value as well as an outstanding facility.
Thank you again and my aplolgies for waiting so long to send this.

Thanks for putting together such a smooth and easy travel experience for us. We will highly recommend you to all our friends as they plan their Galapagos trips!
Thanks again for your great planning and service while on our trip.

Thanks so much for the fantastic trip for our group from Loveland, Colorado. I enjoyed meeting and and am enjoying the book you gave me. I love history.
Thanks, too, for helping with our 4 stranded travelers. You and Ivan were fantastic. It made me breathe easier to know that you were taking care of them. I've been recommending you and Columbus travel to all my friends and have told Diane at Hoffman Travel how incredible you are. I'll be meeting in the next week or so with Diane to give her the gift you sent with me. I know she'll love it.
Thanks again. I can best be reached by phone at 970-663-2948. This e-mail address is at my school and is difficult to get to during the summer (June-August). I'll be using it when I get back in September.
Thanks again. This was the best of my 3 trips to Ecuador.
