Aqua Galapagos Reviews

Comments and recommendations received on this Galapagos cruise:

Hello Maria,
Thank you for asking, we just returned to Germany today.
Our cruise was very nice, we enjoyed the dives and the food was great too.

Overall we liked Ecuador a lot. Quito was interesting (although the weather could have been better!), and so were Otavalo, Quilotoa, BaƱos and even Guayaquil.

I am sure I will reach out again when we travel to this region again.

Until then, many thanks again,
