Endemic Galapagos Cruise
James Campbell

Hi Sofia,

The Galapagos was the best experience of our life.

The uninhabited islands were like stepping back in time or to a different planet and the wildlife was incredible.

It was an experience of a lifetime and we want to return!

The service from you was amazing. The service all the way through from transfer to the flight home was superb and we were very well looked after at all times.

An unforgettable experience so thank you to everyone!

All the best

Anahi Galapagos Catamaran

To my friend Margarita,
I just want to thank you for our wonderful trip to Ecuador. We had an amazing experience in Galapagos. The MC Anahi was really great. The crew was excellent. Our guide was a guy named Andre Degel and he was really great. We learned so much. We snorkeled twice a day, hiked twice a day. We saw every kind of animal and bird and fish you can imagine. The next week we spent traveling around Ecuador and had so much fun. We went from Quayaquil to Salinas, Manta, Quevedo, Latacunga, Banos, and Quenca. What a diverse and beautiful country you have. From the jungle to the high mountains to the ocean it was all varied and so pretty. All the people we encountered were to friendly and helpful. We just got home yesterday. Thank you for your help planning our trip. I'll recommend Ecuador to everyone I know.

From your friend in Utah,

Dennis Haar

Hi Gabriela,

I did fill out the survey and gave the whole trip/staff excellent ratings.

I also wanted to thank you directly for your help.    I had actually contacted another group prior to Columbus Travel but they were slow to respond.    Your quick response and accurate understanding of our needs made you the clear front-runner.   I’m glad we made the choice with Columbus.

Thank you.
