We are successfully back at home after exciting trip to Ecuador and Galapagos. On behalf of all clients in our group, I would like to thank you once more for your perfect preparation of the trip. By the way, the "Spirit of Ecuador" bottle has been already opened. The liquor inside is really excellent! Thank you.

My best regards

I wanted to write to let you know what a fantastic tour my husband, Stefaan, and I had in the Galapagos. We just returned last night to Quito. The crew and guide on the Golondrina took great care of us. The tour covering both the northern and southern islands was perfect.

We appreciate all your assistance in the planning of our tour (making arrangements, answering our many questions, etc).

I will recommend Columbus Travel and the Golondrina in the future.

Best regards,
