Hello Cristina.  I wanted to thank you for everything you did to make my Galapagos trip a success.  It has been a long time since I have had such a high level service from a travel agency.  I will definitely recommend you and Columbus Travel.

Hello Maria

Not sure if there are too many photos here - but I will give it a go.

Well we have been home one week - what a trip we had - the Galapagos are amazing I have to pinch myself to believe I was actually there.

I cannot thank you enough for all your help and assistance - you went above and beyond helping me plan this trip of a lifetime. Your dedication and prompt responses to all my annoying emails was fantastic. I will definitely recommend your company to anyone I know travelling to South America. I hope your company knows what an asset you are to them.

It was great to meet you and I am glad I kept looking for your office for 45 minutes when you were just around the corner - I am such a dill.

I am heading out for lunch today with my poncho I bought in Quito - so many fond memories again.

It all went smoothly with a few adventures along the way - mostly in Argentina though!!

All the best
