Floreana Reviews

Comments and recommendations received on this Galapagos cruise:

Dear Christian,

We would like to thank you and Columbus Ecuador for all the help and excellent services
with reference to our last trip to Ecuador/Galapagos.

I attach the comment card, which we forgot to give to our driver on our last day in Quito.
The only reason we gave a “poor” rating of Food & Beverage is that the restaurant at the hotel in Quito is not open when they serve groups, otherwise all food services were very good.

With best regards,

Hi Diego

I am sorry I did not reply sooner - I am only just checking my emails. We are now back from the Galapagos and did not want to leave - if only there had been space on the Southern islands cruise this week!! I am also sorry I never replied about the transfer of money - I did not receive that email. However, everything went smoothly and the cruise was wonderful. The Floreana was a lovely boat, even if it was dwarfed by all the other boats we saw (which luckily was not many, at times it felt like we had the Galapagos to ourselves - heaven).

Thank you very much for finding us such a good replacement boat at the last minute, and I hope one day to be back to book the Southern Islands cruise with you,

Best wishes

Kate and Rob

I just wanted to write to say "Thank You" for taking care of the travel arrangements to the Galapagos Islands as well as the stay in Quito. The trip was absolutely amazing, and we had a great time even though Dave left his bathroom supplies at Fuente de Piedra., but other than that, everything was fabulous.

If possible, give my thanks to Xavier for driving us as well as to the crew of the Floreana, who were incredible!!!

Take care,

We would like to express, once again, our thanks to you.
Bellavista and Galapagos were both fantastic. Bellavista was a bit rainy but is a fabulous place to stay, with friendly staff and incredible fod. Galapagos was superb. All the different animals, and the weather was great. Floreana is a good boat, with an extremely friendly staff and guide. The cook was even better than in Bellavista, here even made dishes at our request(Ceviche among others). It was a great ending to a great holiday. Today we are going home so we don' t have the chance to come and see you on another day. Thanks again!
