we are back from Galapagos. It was really good and we enjoyed every minute. Weather was good, only a bit of rain. The ship was very nice, pretty spacious, food good, crew brilliant. Wildlife is (...)
awesome. And 5 nights are enough, then it gets a bit repetitive.
So, thanks a lot for the tip and the organisation. We will definitely come back to Galapagos and we will get in touch then. As for the Amazon, we decided it would be a bit too much for now, but we also want to to that one day.

informative. Thank you for your help in setting this up.

Anahi + JW Marriot
My wife and I, both in our early 60s, traveled in Ecuador for 14 days in January 2012. Our entire trip was planned and executed, without a hitch, by Columbus Travel. Our agent, Julia Haessler, worked diligently (...)
with us throughout our planning process, via email and even once by telephone. She was always timely and helpful in her responses, even when our questions may have seemed somewhat elementary and repetitive. While traveling in Ecuador, we had access to a 24-hour phone line, which we did use when our plane from the Galapagos Islands go us into Quito 2.5 hours earlier than the airlines schedule indicated. Julia contacted our transfer driver who picked us up within 15 minutes of our call!
Julia made all reservations for us, including 5 days/4 nights touring the Galapagos Islands on La Pinta, and an 8-day tour of the mainland. She tailored those 8 days to our interests, so that we spent maximum time in the Andean countryside with our guide, Juan Vizcaino. Juan's knowledge of the places we visited is exceptional, as is his command of English. We would highly recommend using Columbus Travel.

We have been in South America for nearly 4 months now and the Galapagos Islands is definitely the best experience we have had so far, as well as the most expensive, but it was worth every penny!!
