I just wanted to let you know that we are back from our trip and it was wonderful, more than we hoped for. The experience on the Eric was the best vacation we have had yet. And the service by you and (...)
your company was exceptional. All of the details you arranged went flawlessly and it was the most stress free vacation we have had. It was so nice to see Javier there at the airports to pick us up and then drop us off. He was so very punctual and polite and made sure we knew exactly where we had to go and what we needed, which was a concern for us since unfortunately we don't speak Spanish. Thank you to you and your company for such a nice experience
It was the best trip! I can't stop talking about it. Everything from booking it with you to getting to the airport for my flight home went as planned, and I felt that all the details were taken care (...)
of. I was very impressed by the staff of Metropolitan who really paid attention to the smallest detail. In fact, the Chairman of that company was sitting across the aisle from me on the plane to Baltra and he was a passenger as well. I really enjoyed it! Thank you!
I cannot begin to tell you how grateful I am to you and how much our family enjoyed our trip to Ecuador.
From the moment we landed in Quito until the day we left for home, Columbus Travel were (...)
Everything went without a single hiccup or hitch.
The drivers, guides, hotels…. outstanding.
And La Selva Lodge and La Pinta - were like waking up in heaven.
We will never forget the amazing sites of the Amazon and The Galapagos, but also, we will never forget how safe and cared for we felt with everything that Columbus travel did for us.
The gifts for the children at Christmas - a wonderful touch, thank you.
I have given your name and email to so many of my friends and colleagues since returning home. I sincerely hope they contact you and get to experience what we saw and did.
Again, thank you so much
Who knows, we may get to travel to Ecuador again!!
We are currently awaiting our flight back out of Quito and arrived here from the Galapagos today.
We had a wonderful time in Ecuador - surpassing all our expectations. The people are (...)
friendly, the cities (Quito, Otavalo, Cotocachi, and Galapagos) are beautiful and the food is delicious.
The Galapagos trip was amazing. The Integrity is a beautiful boat and its crew and naturalist are professional, friendly and knowledgeable. The service through out the trip was flawless. The itinerary was a perfect mix of relaxation, education and adventure, with just the perfect amount of security and safety provided by the Integrity crew. I would recommend the eight day itinerary and the Integrity to all our friends.
Thank you for proposing this itinerary and helping us through the process of booking it. We are already talking about doing the Eastern itinerary sometime in the future.
I'm just checking in with you to let you know that we had a very nice time in Ecuador, and to let you know that I would recommend using you, and your agency to my friends. Thank you for making the (...)
reservations and for answering my questions about the trip. Everything went very smoothly and we found it easy to travel in your country. If you have any clients that need a recommendation for your agency, you have my permission to have them contact me.
My only advice would be to notify the boat that we were on to serve more Ecuadorian type foods. The western menu that we ate from was not very special for the tourists. I would tell the boat company to have at least one Ecuadorian meal per day, or serve one Ecuadorian side dish per meal.
Hi Elena, Had just the best holiday in the Galapagos. Diving at Darwin and Wolf, 3 times with a 50 foot whale shark, with a 1000 school of Hammerheads, incredible!!!!! white tips and Galapagos sharks as well (...)
as Eagle and Manta Rays.etc...... and the cruise on the Isabella afterwards was a fantastic rest ( too much food) and visiting the islands on land was great. Also managed to fit in hiking in Quito and Cotapaxi. Wish I had gone to the rain forest too and a bit more hiking BUT I will be back. Thanks for all your help.
Best wishes Ian Cook

I just wanted to send you a quick email to say thank you for helping us organise our trip on the Darwin. It was absolutely fantastic and we loved everything about it - the islands, the boat, the crew, the guide Tamara was fantastic and all the other people on the boat were great too.
Walking all the islands and seeing all those animals and the snorkeling is probably one of the best experiences we've had anywhere in the world, and we have both travelled a LOT!
We will also write some reviews on TripAdvisor too and anywhere else you would like?
I want to totally agree with Annamary. This was a wonderful trip. I just want to add that Patricio and Oscar were great on the land portion of the trip. Patricio was a safe and considerate driver (...)
and Oscar was very knowledgeable and responsive to all our requests. The boat crew and our guide on the sea portion were superb. The accommodations you provided were top notch. We especially enjoyed the Mansion de Alcazar. Thanks for all your help and advice--you really made getting ready for the trip and knowing what to expect much easier for us. I too am singing the praises of Columbus Travel and this particular Ecuador/Galapagos trip.
We have just returned from our South American holiday after having a wonderful time.
I would like to thank you very much for your services. Our whole experience of the places you recommended (...)
& organized were excellent. We had no problems at all & we thoroughly enjoyed it. I was extremely well looked after on my tour through the Sacred Valley in Peru, all tours & all guides were excellent & all hotels were excellent. I always felt safe.
Our cruise around the Galápagos Islands was wonderful. I would recommend this ship to anyone. The staff, the guides & the excursions were all fantastic.
Thanks again. Wish you lived local...I would always use your services!
We are back from our adventure and want to thank you for all your help and organizing skills. We were very pleased with Group Travel, as well. The guides were all great and very knowledgeable. If we (...)
would have realized how outstanding the last two hotels were we would have extended the trip 4 or 5 days more to be able to enjoy their facilities. The Palacio Nazarene upgraded us to the Nazarene Suite on the 2nd floor. We made some wonderful new friends on Ocean Spray and in the Selva Lodge. The Lodge and Ocean Spray were outstanding. The staff and crew were above and beyond expectation.
Daniel, at the Lodge, was our guide. His sister lives in Chicago and his best friend lives 15 min. from us....small.
Thank you and very warm regards from us both.
Ud debe descansarse tambien; no? No puede trabajar todo el tiempo...... Aqui algunas palabras por nuestro viaje maravilloso:

stress free holiday in beautiful Ecuador and Peru?. If so, make sure to book with Columbus TRAVEL; and make your booking with Christian, their friendly, super efficent sales representative who speaks perfect English and; pretty good Spanish too...
My wife Monica and I have just returned from the holiday of a life time in Ecuador and Peru. Thanks to Columbustravel and Christian, we relaxed in first class hotels in Quito and Lima, trekked through the exciting Amazonian jungle , scaled mountain peaks in the Andes, sailed around the exotic Galapagos islands in comfortable cruisers and stared in amazement at unforgettable Inca ruins and treasures in both Ecuador and Peru.. all in just three short weeks.
Every aspect of our trip, from reservation to departure for home went like clockwork. Christian answered all our questions promptly and efficiently and conjured up made to measure packages for us. At all our destinations we were met with comfortable minibuses or luxury cars, our guides were friendly, knowledgeable and discreet..... and nothing was a bother for them.
If you want a taste of South America or a deeper insight into the magnificent culture, scenery, wild life or architecure of this touristic Paradise, take my tip and contact Columbus Travel and Christian.. You won t regret it...
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.

Hi Maria Soledad,
This will sound too simple, but everything and everyone were fantastic. The Seastar/Domenica was perfect, Mayra was a phenomenal guide, and we had a wonderful time.
Many thanks for your help (...)
