Comments and recommendations received on this Galapagos cruise:
David, I just wanted you to let you know that I appreciated your orchestrating my trip to the Galapagos on the Darwin I. Everything was well coordinated from the driver to the airport, packet, flights, etc. the small, no frills Darwin I, along with Raphael the guide and the staff were superb - much better than the larger boats with a hundred people or so.
Thanks for everything!!!
Saludos and Buenos Dias Cristina,
We just wanted to take a minute to thank you for helping us with our visit. Everything from the minute we landed at Quito Airoporto to the minute we left for home went so smoothly!! The Darwin was fantastic and the crew and our guide, Raphael, were special and made the visit a trip of a lifetime!! In addition to the cruise, we toured "Old Town" Quito and were able to visit the Bellavista Cloud Forest for a couple days. As advertised, it was cloudy but after getting used to being damp, really had a nice experience. We are bird watchers so between Galapagos and the Cloud Forest saw some really beautiful wildlife. The snorkeling was wonderful too, especially alongside a penguin.
Best part, we picked up some Spanish for our next visit sometime in the future.
Gracias and love,

We had a wonderful time in Ecuador and the highlight was the Galapagos. Your company was a wonderful help, especially you Francisco who answered every question promptly and made the organising of our trip so much
easier. As we were on a limited budget your help in finding the right cruise was really appreciated and we had a wonderful time on the Darwin and mwt some great people. Once again thank you for your professional service and helpfulness at all times.
We have already recommended your agency and will continue to do so.
The trip was WONDERFUL! I felt like you and everyone from your company were very helpful, friendly and quick to respond. You were always able to be reached and having someone meet us at the airport was so helpful. I couldn't have asked for a better trip or experience.
Thank you for all of your help and your kindness. I would wholeheartedly recommend your services to anyone! (in fact I will be sending someone your way very soon - her name is Andrea Hrusovsky)
Thank you again for everything,
Thanks Maria for the follow up.
We have enjoyed the trip very much! It was the dream trip and we are recommending it to all our friends. The boat Darwin was nice, the Staff also very nice and the best was our nature Guide Tamara. Very environmentally aware, very Knowledgeable and passionate.
Thank you very much for your assistance again.
It's been a couple of weeks since we finished our Galapagos trip and we are now in Peru.
I just wanted to send you a quick email to say thank you for helping us organise our trip on the Darwin. It was absolutely fantastic and we loved everything about it - the islands, the boat, the crew, the guide Tamara was fantastic and all the other people on the boat were great too.
Walking all the islands and seeing all those animals and the snorkeling is probably one of the best experiences we've had anywhere in the world, and we have both travelled a LOT!
We will also write some reviews on TripAdvisor too and anywhere else you would like?
Thanks again so much!
