Comments and recommendations received on this Galapagos cruise:
We had a GREAT time in Ecuador! Thank you so much for all your help.
Working with you and all the staff at Columbus travel was wonderful. You had patience with all my many questions and worked hard to make sure I got everything I was looking for.
The SAMBA and the Galpagos were amazing! Everything about them exceeded my expectations and my hopes every day! The islands and the animals were beautiful, interesting, educational, inspirational. Our guide, Juan Salcedos, was wonderful and made sure we were the first ones on the islands in the morning and the last ones off in the evenings. In almost all cases, our small group were the only ones on the island, we had paradise to ourselves! Onboard SAMBA and with Juan Salcedos as our guide, we saw more of the Galapagos then we would have on any other vessel. If we wanted to stay longer or if we wanted to snorkle again, it was no problem!
The crew on the SAMBA were wonderful as well. I didn't know we were going to get gourmet food, but we did! Delicious fresh lobster tails, fresh tuna, fresh grouper, as well as wonderfully prepared chicken, beef, turkey and pork. And amazing desserts! SAMBA really spoiled us! I gained 5 pounds!
I was surprised and delighted every single day on the Galapagos trip that Colombus travel and Francisco Vela booked for me!
DEAR CHRISIAN ,JUST A NOTE TO TELL YOU THAT WE TRULY ENJOYED OUR TIME IN THE GALAPADOS ISLANDS. IT IS LIKE ANOTHER WORLD. THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME AND CARE PLANNING OUR TRIP GOD BLESS DEBBIE

Our family had an incredible time in the Galapagos, thoroughly enjoying our week on the Samba. The crew was friendly, the guide was very knowledgeable, the food was great, but the star of the show is truly the islands and the wildlife.
I would also like to thank you once again for all your efforts on our behalf regarding the last minute changes we had to make to our trip. I was a little hesitant booking with a non-North American travel company, but after our recent experience I would recommend Columbus Travel without hesitation to anyone planning a trip to Ecuador, Peru or the Galapagos.
