Comments and recommendations received on this Galapagos cruise:
Hope all is well with you. We had a wonderful time touring Ecuador and cruising Galapagos Islands. We want to thank you for helping us in the planning and execution of this trip. Our Ecuador land tour was well planned as we did not miss any activities mentioned in the itinerary. Your staff were polite, on time and friendly. We enjoyed our time with our tour guide (Juan Vizcaino) who was friendly and informative on the history and geography of Ecuador. We had a great experience visiting many Galapagos Islands on Explorer II, cabins are large and with nice Balcony. The food was good and the kitchen staff were very attentive to my husband's need for special diet. We were well informed and prepared for our daily tours of islands and we were amazed how close we could get to birds, iguana, GIANT tortoises and sea lions. What an amazing experience. Most of all, I wanted to thank you and to congratulate you for the magnificent job you did in organizing and implementing our trips in your country. You were always timely with your responses either to my e-mail or phone calls during our planning phase as well as while we were in Ecuador. You really are a GREAT agent: knowledgeable, responsive, kind, considerate, and helpful. I can not thank you enough for making special last minute arrangement so I could purchase gifts at that local market in Quito. You are a very customer oriented tour agent and what a pleasure it was working with you. I hope you don't mind, but I provided your name and agency to a friend of mine who is considering a Galapagos trip for him and his wife in the near future. Thank you again for answering to all of our questions/requests, and helping to make this trip so wonderful!!
All the best,

This is a rather belated letter informing you how much we enjoyed our cruise to the Galapagos Islands on the Explorer 2 from 1st December to 7th December 2012.
We were very impressed with the whole organisation. The hotels in Quito were first class. The Cazona de la Ronda had such a lovely atmoshpere, good food, very comfortable rooms etc. & the staff extremely friendly & helpful. In fact Giselle, the director, of the hotel is here in Madrid at the moment with her husband & will be coming to visit us on Wednesday. We were also very impressed with the other hotel, Plaza Grande, I believe it is called. Excellent in every way.
The pick ups from airport & hotels were carried out in a very professional way & the respective chauffeurs were very helpful & pleasant. The cruise ship was very comfortable, the food excellent the crew were all so very friendly & professional & all seemed to speak excellent English. The guides were very informative & did a great job. All in all it was a fantastic trip & we should like to thank you especially for arranging it for us so well.
We shall not hesitate to recommend columbus travel to our friends & relations.
Felix & I would like to wish you a very happy, healthy, peaceful & prosperous 2013.

Thanks for the follow up.
All went well in the Galapagos. The cruise was excellent and the hotels were great. The service at Sol y mar could not have been better with a combination of professionalism and personal attention.
Thanks for you help and we will be happy to recommend your services if the opportunities comes up. We were actually referred to you by some friends.

We are now back from Ecuador and starting to resettle into our "normal" lives. I wanted to let you know how happy we were to meet you and how thrilled we were with the entire trip and the important part you played in making it a success. We loved our trip to the Galapagos, the ship and crew were fabulous and of course the Islands are magical and unforgettable.
The trip to the Amazon also turned out to be a wonderful experience although not exactly as planned. I had really hoped for Kapawi but weather, as you know made that impossible so going to Yachana was not our first choice, but as it turned out it is an extraordinary place and you can certainly send people there in the future. It has an educational program for local children which is remarkable and its located in a beautiful spot. Our guide was amazing and we will stay in touch with him for the future.
Getting us into the Plaza Grande was truely a coup!! How you managed that is beyond me, but it sure was not wasted on us! We loved it and they loved us!!
