Apologies, I am only getting to send you a note of thanks now for helping us arrange our fabulous trip to the Galapagos islands. We had a fantastic holiday, and everything about the trip worked out (...)
really well. The boat, the food, the people and the guides (not to mention the islands themselves) were great and the overall experience exceeded our expectations.
I would have no hesitation in recommending your travel company for a fantastic Galapagos experience. Thanks for your time and effort in organising our trip and your patience when our paypal accounts stalled.
I just wanted to write and let you know what a FABULOUS trip we had to the Galapagos. Our guide was wonderful. His English was excellent and he was very knowledgeable. We especially appreciated his (...)
flexibility (although the itinerary was so perfect, we really didn't change anything)! Of course, the Iquana Crossing in Isabela was beautiful with amazing service and the Angermeyer on Santa Cruz was also lovely.
I honestly cannot think of one negative thing to say about the entire vacation starting with the excellent service that we received from you and ending with Pablo flying back with us to Quito and not leaving our side.

I just wanted to let you know how happy we were with our recent cruise on the Ocean Spray. It truly was the vacation of a lifetime. The food was delicious, the crew members couldn't have been nicer and (...)
I can't imagine a better guide than Jorge. His knowledge and enthusiasm were boundless and his morning wake up announcements were priceless.The Machu Picchu part of the trip was fantastic,too. Our accomadations and guides on that end were great, too! We were raving about the trip to some friends of ours and they are very interested in going so I'm going to give them your name and e-mail address.
We can't thank you enough,

Hi Diego - we are back from the Galapagos - what an amazing, time out of time experience! Thank you so much for your arrangements for the trip, both in Quito-Otavalo, and on the Ocean Spray. The trip met ALL of (...)
our expectations, and beyond! We really appreciate all your care. Our naturalist guide on the Ocean Spray was Harry Jimenez - he is a real treasure!
At some point we would like to return to see other parts of Ecuador, and to go to Peru. We will be sure to call on you to make the arrangements, and we will certainly tell our friends about Haugan!
Best for the new year! And again, many many thanks - it was the experience of a lifetime! Laurie

Many thanks for the extraordinary experience. It was certainly something special to travel the islands and more specifically to get so close to all the animals. Also, the tour group proved to be (...)
very amiable, with mainly people from the U.S. (I suppose the Germans go more for hiking, biking and such. . ). The tour guide was really nice, good crew, very hospitable and helpful, and the ship was really like a small hotel for us, a very good home base for the coastal trips. All in all a very recommendable trip!
This was the best trip I've ever taken! Thank you so much for all your help. The crew and the boat were fantastic and our guide, Christian Salvador, was called in at the last minute as our (...)
scheduled guide was ill and he was wonderful--really knowledgable and tool the time to learn everyone's name! As we get ready to plan our next vacation, I wanted to ask if you arranged other trips in South America--like Peru, Argentina, Chile.
We returned home about 1 AM last night and are getting unpacked and slowly back to the usual routine --but memories of this amazing trip keep us smiling. Thank you for creating the vacation of a (...)
life time for us. Every aspect of it was wonderful! No detail was missed -- the perfect itinerary, the extraordinary accommodations, the knowledgeable guides, the delicious food etc. , etc. , etc. We will be forever grateful for all your efforts for us. We will certainly be highly recommending you and your company.
We loved the Plaza Grande and everything was great on the ship. Our time in the Galapagos was wonderful!

I want you to know that we had a truly marvelous time, and thanks to your hard work, it WAS the trip of a lifetime. I can't say enough how much your careful planning worked out, and we REALLY appreciated the (...)
follow-through and confirming for transfers (which turned out to be essential). We DID have a marvelous time on our trek AND @ the Hacienda Alegria AND in the Galapagos - our mid-range boat was just terrific. And, as usual, you were correct, the Napo lodge was fascinating, truly unique. We want to thank you for your VERY HARD WORK in following through on every little detail. I will certainly recommend you to all our friends and I can't thank you enough for your constancy, prompt responses, positive attitude, and EXCELLENT work.

I just wanted to let you know how greatour trip was. Here we are 3 months later and we still are having the greatest memories of the trip you booked for us on the Legend. Our time in quito, was great (...)
and the guide you arranged and everything you booked for us was fantastic.
Our trip has been wonderful! The driver Javier has been very kind and prompt. Today we will do the city tour and will be ready at 8am-correct! Tomorrow what time will we get our transfer to the (...)
airport. We need to get tickets from TACA counter and go through security and check luggage. How much is the exit tax? Will Javier pick us up tomorrow and what time should we be ready?
Our time on the Beagle was excellente I would recommend that boat to anyone. I would recommend your travel agency to all too. You have been very professional and all your staff very helpful and friendly.
Thanks again for taking time to answer my last questions.
We're home!! We had a wonderful trip, in no small part because of you!! Thank you for everything!!
The Angelito I was wonderful, and all the crew expert and accommodating, and the tour guide Hansel was a (...)
brilliant naturalist/guide. . By the way, they did have wet suits on board for everybody and were surprised that we had bothered to order 3 suits in advance thru you for $15 more apiece! We saw lots of animals and swam with the sea lions; the food was delicious, the weather perfect, and only one night of rocking and rolling in the boat as we crossed the equator - it was quite a ride!
Then out to Kapawi - I was worried about those small planes, but again the weather was great and the pilots were, too. Animals were not as easy to see as in the Galapagos, but the rain forest experiences incredible, and again our naturalist guides Mauricio and Anhil were the best! It was such a gift to be able to visit an Achuar community and meet the shaman. Finally, thank you for the transfers, they were a great help, and for all the extra last minute help you gave us, taking Jesse's calls and checking on flights and accommodations. . You were always professional and kind to us and we thank you for arranging our very successful time in the Galapagos and the Kapawi Rain Forest, and for your graciousness when we called you for additional help. When our friends ask for a tour agent to recommend in Quito, you'll be it.
