Comments and recommendations received on this Galapagos cruise:
It was the holiday of a lifetime and much much better than I could have dreamed!
The ship 'Grace' is a very charming and beautiful ship and the cabin was very comfortable, particularly being on the upper deck as I gather the lower deck cabins were a bit damp.
The staff on board were all very professional and polite. The food was amazing considering we were away from the mainland for so long; the chef did a great job.
The guides were astonishingly knowledgeable, particularly Raffa who seems to know everything there is to know about nature, volcanoes, weather, the sky and stars etc. etc.! And the lovely Jocelyn, Raffa's co-guide, was also knowledgeable and helpful and kind.
All the guests were interesting and fun and keen to do all the snorkelling and swimming and walking etc. The fact that we were only 16 guests made it much more cosy and intimate and we all got to know each other and have a lot of laughs. On one night it was Jeremy Hill's birthday and the chef made him a birthday cake which we all shared and sang 'happy birthday'.
Well done you organising it all, and thank you. If I ever can afford to go back to the second week in the Galapagos north of the Equator where I believe there are different birds, animals and coral reefs, I will contact you and Columbus Travel.
With kind regards and renewed thanks
I have been meaning to email you to say what a marvellous holiday we had. We were very pleased to meet you in your smart offices. The holiday was all we could have hoped for. The other passengers were very congenial, the guides were superbly expert and lovely people. Joscelyn (spelling?) took Jeremy under her wing and helped him when walking was difficult. She also swam with me, taking me by the hand to where I could see turtles, and took a photo of me snorkelling with a turtle! Another plus was the food, which was delicious and well-balanced - Jeremy didn't put on any weight! He sends his congratulations to you and says it all went fantastically well and he would heartily recommend you in every way. It really was the holiday of a lifetime.
We also loved Ecuador and Quito.
Very many thanks for all you did for us.
Thank you for helping us arrange a wonderful trip! We had a great time on the M/Y Grace cruise. The crew was friendly and professional and I would be happy to recommend the Grace and Columbus Travel to my friends.
Thanks again for all you do,
