I just wanted to write and thank you for all your help putting together a wonderful trip. Eric and I really enjoyed our 13 days of vacation and I really have to compliment our guide Ivan. He was really (...)
good and knowledgeable! Even when I got sick he stuck around for a couple of hours until we could go to the hotel. Nice trip overall. I will recommend Columbus travel for any friend interested in Ecuador.
I hope all is well with you.

So we are back in cold windy Wellington again now, but just wanted to thank you for organising such a big part of our trip. You did a fantastic job, and it was amazing! The transfer services were (...)
superb, and made a huge difference to the trip as we didn't have to worry about anything. The Cayman Hostel was lovely, and we really enjoyed our cruise on the Seaman II. An unforgettable trip!
Thanks so much for all your help, we will definitely be recomending you to anyone we know who is heading over that way!
Cheers : )

Traveled on the Seaman II
Just to let you know we had a great time in the Galapagos. We can recommend the Samba to anyone who wants to see a wide range of islands in comfortable conditions. Fellow passengers, crew and food (...)
were all great and from our perspective the Samba was much better than a lager boat with more people. Snorkelling was a highlight and we had a great guide – Monika.
Thanks again for you help for this last minute booking.

Travelled on Samba
We wanted to let you know we absolutely loved our cruise on the Coral I !! The crew and the guides were great, helpful, friendly. The food was very, very good and most plentiful! The little (...)
touches that the crew and guide performed were great. And the guides answering our endless questions was so nice.
We had some special moments with sharks one night. They were chasing little silver fish and the captain lit up the ocean for us to watch. And another afternoon, there were dolphins jumping way ahead of us traversing the ocean oh so quickly! We snorkeled with sea lions and turtles! We walked and saw so many birds nesting and courting.
I would recommend the Coral I to anyone. It was as I had hoped, a fantastic trip to remember!!!
Thank you for your part in making the trip come true!

I was just about to sit down and write you a note, myself. I have to thank you so much for helping us book our cruise-of-a-lifetime! We had no idea how wonderful it was going to be. Everything (...)
was better than we'd imagined: the ship was perfectly comfortable, the crew friendly and extremely hospitable, our Guide, Joffrey Herrera, charming and knowledgeable, the islands and wildlife endlessly fascinating.
I think the three of us felt rather sorry for the other passengers, who had to leave the ship after only three or four-day cruises. The full week-long cruise is really necessary to see (almost) everything.
I will certainly recommend a Galapagos trip, and your services, to anyone I meet who may be interested. We were privileged to be able to take such a fun adventure. Thank you for helping us get there!
Kate and I wanted to thank you for setting us up with a spectacular cruise aboard the Treasure of Galapagos catamaran. We loved the trip and the entire journey was completely hassle-free. Our guide, (...)
Harry, was very knowledgeable, spoke great English, and towards the end of the trip was cracking jokes and laughing with the rest of the group, creating a very fun and light atmosphere. The food about the Treasure was fantastic and also quite healthy, with a variety of fruits, vegetables, fish (and other meats), and fresh squeezed juices with each meal. The suite aboard the boat was beautiful and comfortable, making us the envy of our fellow sailors. And who can fail to mention the wildlife, the reason we wanted to explore the Islands, we saw everything we wanted to and more.
Thanks for an amazing "bucket list" experience!

Traveled on the Treasure of Galapagos
THANK YOU a hundred times for all your efforts to get us to Galapagos!!! The islands really are a magical place. . . all those fearless & friendly animals. . . Everything worked out perfectly (...)
and we had a splendid time on the Odyssey. We met Nick & Penny from England who also were very content with you. T trust the payment worked out fine in the end (my cc has been charged as agreed). Anyway, we have spent a magical honeymoon thanks to you both working at night, on weekends and harder than anyone could ask for ;-)
Thank you for booking the most amazing holidays for me. The Galapagos was just amazing and Anahi would be hard to beat as a vessel . I had nothing to complain about. Only 5 other nice pax. So it was (...)
even better. I am now viewing my photos and I have some amazing shots of the wildlife
Once again a big thank you for your efficiency and knowledge in booking the best trips ever.
Wanted to drop a note of thanks to you. Your personalized service and genuine caring were a real help in making our little vacation an experience we will remember forever. Your recommendations were (...)
spot on and Columbus travel should be extremely grateful to have someone who obviously enjoys helping others have fantastic trouble free Travel experiences.
I would recommend you and Columbus Travel to anyone for a hassle free vacation.
Again, thanks you so very much.

I have been incredibly busy since we returned from Ecuador and have not had a chance to write to you sooner about our recent trip.
First of all, let me state that we were very happy with Columbus (...)
Travel and all of the arrangements you made for us. You were very upfront and clear with what services you were providing and we were not disappointed in the least -- in fact we were pleasantly surprised and delighted. Elena, you were very responsive to every inquiry made by us and you did so on a timely basis. I would highly recommend you and Columbus Travel to my family and friends for their travel needs in Ecuador.
I have booked a tour to the Galapagos and a land tour Quito to Guayaquil with Vero. She has been absolutely wonderful to deal with and has helped me much more than I (...)
thought would happen with an on line booking service. It can be a gamble booking with an unknown online but from the beginning I had trust in Vero and the way she handled all my queries. I will certainly be recommending her and your company to anyone wanting to do bookings in Ecuador. I always do my reviews on Trip Advisor and Thorntree and will make sure this is done this week-end.
We wanted to let you know that we had a wonderful time in Ecuador and the Galapagos. Your arrangements for us were superb and we sincerely appreciated your efforts on our behalf. We will definitely (...)
recommend you and your company to anyone with plans to go the Galapagos!
All the best,
