Comments and recommendations received on this Galapagos cruise:
I had concerns booking this trip to Ecuador. But you made it very easy and once we exited the first airplane, we were met and taken to our next connection. Never a doubt after that. I would recommend Columbus Travel and you, Sophia to others travelling to Ecuador.

Excuse the delay in my response, but I had to make an unexpected trip to London on my return & this is my first opportunity to give a proper reply.
We cannot thank you enough for your wonderful service. Everything went like clockwork. We were met as expected on arrival & taken to our excellent hotel. What a great choice as the former colonial building was a gem & very close to the centre of Quito.
We had a super guide in Caterina both before & after our cruise (please tell her that the roses made it here with only 2 casualties out of 100).
As for the Galápagos cruise on the Cormorant - words cannot adequately describe the experience. It was beyond what we had imagined. The vessel & her crew were first class. Excellent service & food. The naturalist, Daniel, fired us with his own enthusiasm.
We quickly became accustomed to the panga rides - an adventure in themselves!
I think we were unfortunate that the cloud was so low in Papallacta that we were unable to appreciate its delights. The sighting of bears on our way back to the airport more than compensated.
I have been singing Columbus travel's praises & would happily recommend you to anyone thinking of visiting the Galápagos.
The complete itinerary you devised for us from start to finish was exactly right.
Many thanks once again

Every part of the trip was fantastic and I will definitely be recommending you and Columbus Travel to anyone considering visiting Ecuador.
I haven't done it yet but I will be posting comments on Tripadvisor to explain how great the whole experience was.
Thank you for everything!
Krista and Mike Laurie
Thank you Veronica
We had a really great time, thank you.
The trip has been fantastic, the boat, the food but most especially our guide Roberto. Especial thanks to you and John for arranging it all.

Just back from the Galapagos and the trip was fabulous........one of the best ever!
We really enjoyed the entire trip. The Tour in Quito was a good time and we are glad we added it to the itinerary. The guide did a good job taking us all around. Galapagos as you know was fantastic. We were lucky to have a very good group of people and our naturalist Javier was terrific! The boat was perfect for the Galapagos and the service couldn't be beat.
Mariella our Peru guide was super knowledgeable and we really enjoyed her company. Everything worked out great. She gave us suggestions at Machu Picchu and shared train & hotel / bus information to make our travels easier. The driver was good and Ishmeil kept an eye on our progress.
Our hotels were very nice. Palacio Del Inka gave us a large suite the second night. The round rooms at Sol Y Luna were fun and the grounds were beautiful. When we arrived at the Sumaq hotel a large group of people arrived at the same time. We thought we would get lost in the shuffle but the staff took good care of us. The second day they were doing construction on their lobby and they went out of their way to make us comfortable. They provided a complementary lunch with wine on the last day.
We were very concerned about Kathy's passport issue but your guidance and our lucky hotel location close to the Airline offices worked out fine. Thanks for your research and direction on how to update Kathy's passport number.
The trip was fantastic and we are very glad you helped us set up the trip. We have told many people about Columbus Travel.
Thanks for all your help.

The 15 day cruise on the Cormorant was fantastic...Javier the naturalist was
very helpful and the service from Captain Pedro and his crew was excellent.
We have many fond memories and over 1000 photos from the Galapagos.
Michael and Michele
A very belated thank you for organising a fabulous trip to Quito and the Galapagos for Chris and myself. We had a fabulous time all around, due in huge part to your efforts.
We loved the Galapagos and thought the Cormorant was excellent. We loved our trip to Otovalo and thought Ivan was superb (and the lunch was in a beautiful place). Quito was fabulous, and being at the Casa Gangotena during the processions on Good Friday was quite fortunate!
And of course, thank you for the bottle of wine (that did not last long with us...).
If we can recommend friends to you for the same trip, we will of course do that. And, we may need some recommendations from you as well for other places in South American in due course, if that were possible.
All the best.
Cormorant and day tours
I must thank you, Vero, for putting together this wonderful trip. Without your patience and knowledge we would certainly not had such a spectacular experience. What can I say about the Cormorant other that truly exceptional. Sandra tended to our every need and from the chef to the boat drivers to the room cleaners everyone made us feel welcome, comfortable and happy. We saw some fabulous sites and it was an experience that none of us will ever forget. How lucky we were to be on that boat with that crew.
