Auque ya un poco tarde, no quiero dejar de hacerle participe de los estupendos días que hemos pasado en su País. Quito nos gusto mucho, nos sorprendió lo grande que es y lo difícil de su (...)
orografía. También nos impresionó el bonito parque de la Mitad del mundo, muy bien organizado y didáctico.
Y, bueno, que decir de las maravillosas iglesias !!! Unicas !!
Ya por fin en Galápagos, la organización fue perfecta. El velero Marie Anne una maravilla , y la tripulación fantástica. Creo que escogimos el mejor barco posible.
Me quedo sin palabras para describir la fauna de las islas. Se respira tanta paz y armonía !!!
En la isla La Española navegamos en la panga justo al lado de dos orcas, una de ellas que se estaba comiendo una tortuga, fue imresionante!! También pudimos ver los maravillosos albatros...
En Isla Plaza Sur pudimos estar al lado de un lobo marino que a habia parido hace poco y estaba rodeado y manchado de sangre con el bebe.
No terminaría de contar y recordar cosas....
Este maravilloso viaje no hubiera sido del todo posible sin su colaboración, una vez más, GRACIAS.
No dejaremos de recomendarles a quien nos sugieran visitar su país.
Sin despedirnos, pero si con un hasta siempre, le envio un cordial abrazo
Thank you for organizing a great and memorable trip for us. The birthday cake on the ship was excellent and the crew were super nice in accommodating us. Each part of our trip was well-planned and had (...)
plenty of activities. It is hard to say what part was most exciting because every day had its highlights. The Galapagos was more beautiful than we expected it and we were amazed at how serious the guides take great care to preserve the islands’ beauty and wild life. Our trip to the Amazon was also as amazing and we especially enjoyed the time spent at the local Sani Warmi village near the Eco Lodge. They were very friendly towards our small group and very attentive. Our guide at the Galapagos was Enrique who works for the Klein group and Patricia was an independent guide that worked with a local native guide, Teo, at La Selva Eco Lodge. All our guides were very well educated on the local plants, insects, and animals. Our taxi driver, Patricio, who drove us back and forth to the airports between trips was courteous and informative. He provided history on the growth of the city and patiently waited while we shopped in Quito’s artisan market.
Thank you for coordinating the trip - we will recommend your company to our friends who are interested in doing this trip with full confidence that they will have the same experience we did. Thank you again for everything!
Thank you for your email and for organizing an amazing trip for us. We had a fantastic time on the Eden and the whole crew was very attentive, professional and pleasant. The food was (...)
exceptionally good and we all had a great time. I will post a review on tripadvisor today and it will be very positive.
Our dealings with you were very easy and convenient, I will have no hesitation in recommending you to my friends by name. I have tried to think of positive criticism for you and I cannot find anything I would change. I appreciate your professionalism and attitude, you obviously do these arrangements a lot and it shows, thank you.
I will let you know if I think of anything else, I hope you have a wonderful week and maybe we will see you again one day.
We would like to say thank you for your efforts and the good organisation of our trip.
We had a wonderful time on the galapagos islands!
Best Regards from Puerto Lopez,

Dear Mr. Francisco,
I like to let you know that I had a wonderful Galapagos cruise. We saw a lot more wildlife than I expected, especially under water during snorkeling. The yacht was nice and the crew very (...)
friendly and helpful and the cook prepared delicious meals. My cabin was on the main deck. The first four days I had to share it, but the last three days I had the whole cabin for myself and that was lovely. I enjoyed the excursions on the islands very much and the guide told us a lot about the history of the islands and the vegetation and wildlife on the Galapagos.
Thank you for arranging this very beautiful tour for me!
I spent 4 days / 3 nights on board the Aida María in August 2015 and loved every second of it. The crew was very pleasant and our guide really great (also had very good English). Food on board (...)
was plenty and always good. Being on board was a lot more comfortable than I had imagined. And the excursions to the aptly called enchanted islands will forever remain unforgettable. An incredible experience not to be missed!!!
I'm sorry I've been so slow to respond. We had the best trip - the boat and crew were top notch. And the guys that helped us through ticketing and security at the airport were great too. Thank you for (...)
everything. Such a wonderful experience. We all loved it,
Wow, it is hard to believe how fast time goes by. We intended to do just what you are asking for right away, but just haven't found the time yet. We will do so very soon.
The trip, and the (...)
services of Columbus Travel ( yours included!) were over the top!
We had such a wonderful time. We had fun, and enjoyed Peru, but we both CAN'T WAIT to visit Ecuador again. You have such a wonderful country, and so many wonderful employees. The Peru group while very accommodating was not up to the level of Columbus Travel. This is not meant to be a review of the trip. Susan, or I will do something more formal in the very near future for your website. I just wanted to get back to you right away. Thanks again for your assistance in planning our most amazing trip.
Out of this world. Extraordinary. Spectacular. Traveling through Ecuador with Columbus Travel is a first class experience not to be missed. Our safety, comfort , and enjoyment were expertly (...)
managed by every staff member we worked with. Lodgings were 5 star, the food delightful, and the scenery beyond our expectations. Ecuador offers so much to appreciate and Columbus Travel guided us to each adventure, providing knowledge and history that enhanced our every step.
A special note to the Ocean Spray, our home in the Galapagos. We felt like we left planet Earth and stepped into something otherworldly. A floating palace. A dream. Simply stunning. Our thanks to everyone associated with Columbus.
From our first contact to our departure home you cared for us. We will not ever forget Ecuador and our time visiting such a lovely country.
Susan and Roger.

Thank you for your email and your interest about our opinion. Our trip to Ecuador and specially to the Galapagos islands was a great an fantastic experience. The service on the Galapagos tour was (...)
excellent and every step was organized very well. We will remember your country in the best manner.
Judy and I would like to thank Columbus Travel for all you have done, your professional approach started from when we were picked up on arrival and has continued since then. I will give a great (...)
Trip Advisor report and will mention you to my NZ Travel Agent as being a fantastic company that puts your clients first and takes great care of them. My initial experience. with Veronica was amazing and this has continued. Thank everyone very much and was a pity that Judy is going to miss most of this holiday we have been planning for over 12 months
Looking at it now Carlos's decision to get a doctor to look at Judy and who referred us to the specialist may have saved a life as the doctors in Quito had concerns with possible blood clots occurring during flying prior to the operation.
Thanks again to your whole crew well done and we truly appreciate you efforts
Cheers and hugs from Rod and Judy

I truly had a wonderful time travelling in Ecuador with my son! I tell everyone that the highlight of the trip was our fabulous cruise to the Galapagos.
Here are the things that I thought were (...)
very well done:
Your communication of what was needed before and during the trip was excellent. Although I have travelled in many other countries, this was my first visit to South America and I appreciated your attention to detail. I felt safe and comfortable, and knew exactly what I needed to do at each step.
The food on the Golandrina was delicious, plentiful and interesting. I found myself looking forward to each meal.
The crew of the Golondrina were consistently friendly, helpful and cheerful. They seemed to enjoy the cruise as much as the passengers, pointing out whales, dolphins and other sights to us.
Our guide, Roberto, was just the best on both water and land. He had so much interesting information on the plants, animals, history and geology of the Galapagos. He did an excellent job of leading the snorkelling groups, finding things that we may not have otherwise seen. He was unfailingly polite and enthusiastic.
The route we followed during our 8 days on the boat was wonderful. I really liked how many islands we were able to see during that time. I've talked to people who only did a 4 day cruise and I felt that would have been way too short a time for me.
Overall, our experience was very posititive. It was truly a trip of a lifetime to a place that I never thought I would see!
I just wanted to let you know how great our trip was. I filled out a response form, but the driver didn't collect it in the morning (it was 4:00 a.m. after all) and I forgot to give it to him. (...)
Would you like me to mail it? I only said great things. The transportation people were there as planned. The written itinerary that the agent gave us was very helpful on the boat and also when I got home and sorted through my photographs. They had a gift pillow for the boys with a tortoise and their names on it. They loved that.
The Hilton was perfect since it was so close to the airport in Guayaquil, as were all the other arrangements you made for us. The adjoining rooms were perfect and made it so easy for my kids and grandchildren.
The boat was very efficient and the excursions were wonderful. We had a great guide (Rafael) who was patient with us and the kids. Everyone was most helpful and friendly. I will definitely recommend your agency to anyone who is planning a trip to Ecuador and the Galapagos.
Thank you again for your help with all my questions and concerns.

I just wanted to thank you very much for all the help you've provided. The trip was absolutely wonderful and problem free. I would highly recommend anyone who would want to go to the Galapagos, or (...)
any destination your company works with. Again, thank you for a GREAT trip. Hope you have a great weekend!
We have returned from our excellent 5-day cruise aboard the Seaman Journey in the Galapagos. We must say that it was a wonderful trip, and we really enjoyed the flora, fauna, fish, and (...)
The arrangements all went very smoothly, starting with our check-in at the Quito hotel, through all the transfers and flights, and ending with our return to the other hotel in Quito.
The boat and its crew were wonderful. We were treated very well, enjoyed the great food, and were very comfortable. The guide (Alexis) was very knowledgeable, and answered all our questions very thoroughly. The itinerary and excursions seemed well-planned to expose us to as much of the Galapagos as possible in a few days.
