Astrea Galapagos Reviews
Comments and recommendations received on this Galapagos cruise:
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, Baños and even Guayaquil.
I am sure I will reach out again when we travel to this region again.
Until then, many thanks again,
Traveled on the Astrea
