Eric, Flamingo I & Letty Reviews
Comments and recommendations received on this Galapagos cruise:
I just wanted to let you know that we are back from our trip and it was wonderful, more than we hoped for. The experience on the Eric was the best vacation we have had yet. And the service by you and your company was exceptional. All of the details you arranged went flawlessly and it was the most stress free vacation we have had. It was so nice to see Javier there at the airports to pick us up and then drop us off. He was so very punctual and polite and made sure we knew exactly where we had to go and what we needed, which was a concern for us since unfortunately we don't speak Spanish. Thank you to you and your company for such a nice experience

Sorry I have not written to you sooner, but I have been resting after our trip to the Galapagos Islands. Wow! What a trip. It was a trip of a life time. I have already recommended your travel agency to my friends. As soon as we stepped out of the plane, someone was waiting on us to take us to our hotel, which by the way, was wonderful. You had everything planned and it worked like clockwork. Judy and I loved the Flamingo 1 and its crew. Janeth was an excellent guide. I took over 1300 pictures. The accommodations on the yacht were great and the food was superb. The crew was wonderful and anything we wanted was available to us. Thank you again for a wonderful trip!

Travelled on Eric, Letty & Flamingo
I just want to thank you for all your help and to let you know we couldn't have been happier with the company, ecoaventura. They were simply marvelous and I think we had two of the best guides possible, Alexis and Ivan. Hogo who ran the dining room was also amazing. It was also a very good group of travelers as well, no one was a 'problem' which is important with such a small group. The Galapagos is a truly remarkable place on this earth, unique and an inspiration. Thank you for your recommendation and patience (I know I had a lot of questions). I wish you well and I am already recommending your company and ecoventura to my friends!

I wanted to thank you for all of your suggestions and for the seamlessness of everyone showing up when they were supposed to show up. I was very impressed.
I think we all liked the Casa Aliso the best - nice rooms, unpretentious and lovely people running the place. Although the Plaza Grande rooms were great it seemed like 3 people would have there hands outstretched for tips between the front door and our room.
It was a good group on the boat. If I had my druthers I would choose the best boat class - but it was still fine and the snorkelling was the best we have ever experienced. My kids have a fair amount of Spanish so I think it reawakened some thoughts of more South American travel and possible work with comapnies operating in North and South America. My son is 25 and was reluctant to come - too much family time and too much nature he had figured. He surprised himself by really enjoying the culture and having a set of good friends that had us all laughing alot.
All in all a memeorable trip. I am starting a travel website - geared towards detailed hiking and biking itineraries in North America and Europe BUT my marketing friend has also suggested blogging. I will certainly mention this trip and you in particualr and once the site is live I will send a link.
Thank you Elena!!

Ahora que hemos regresado a La Paz quería agradecerte todo lo que has hecho para hacer realidad nuestro sueno de visitar las Islas Galapagos. El crucero era fantástico, y recomendaríamos Ecoventura y la "Flamingo" a cualquier otra persona que quisiera hacer ese viaje. Tambien nos ha encantado Quito.
De nuevo, muchas gracias.
