Laura,

You did a great job, thanks. Rerouting our flight to the islands was a big help after we had to land in a different city in Ecuador.

Explorer II was great. Food super, guides good, staff helpful. Cabin was great (balcony). Would not have wanted a smaller ship, size was great.

Thanks Laura, we've just arrived tonight from an unforgettable trip. Both in Ecuador and Peru the tour operators were excellent...the Cuzco hotel, Jose Antonio, was very good. The Salkantay Trail part was an experience out of this world....then we arrived at Aguas Calientes and Hotel Sumaq was the best hotel of the trip, really excellent. We recovered that night and woke up in Machu Picchu the next day. Precious and impressive...and I forgot to tell you that the Galapagos cruise was good, the service excellent, food very good. You can recommend it with eyes closed. Thanks again for all your help. Gloria.

Laura, many thank for your organization. You have organised eveything on a perfect way. The internet page with all the information was great. The information were clear and good to understand.(Plus a user guide, many thanks).

The front desk in the Hotel Patio Andaluz in Quito expected us. Checking in was so easy then. It was a good idea to recommend us this hotel. The location is perfect, the hotel very nice, very clean and a warm atmosphere. We saw also other hotels in Quito, like the Hilton Colon and Mariott. The Mariott is also very good, we took this hotel on our return from the Galapagos cruise, because of the parking space for the car we rented. But the location of the Patio Andaluz is the best you can have in Quito.

When we left Quito for the Galapagos cruise, checking in at the airport in Quito was so easy, I couldn't beleive it. We walked in the airport and went just to a counter of the Airline TAME. The counter officer checked our name, please us to wait a minute and after 1 minute a nice girl picked us up and handled us all information and boarding cards.We received then a blue chain with the name of the cruise arround the neck.

On the arrival in Baltra, guides recognized us on our chain and took care of us It was so easy, you can believe me. On our return from the Galapagos, to receive our car from Avis, it was the same service. All my compliments. It was so easy the book this with you. Many thanks. I wish you mery merry Christmas, that you have good Christmas event with all that thinks around as family, friends, gift, good food. I wish you also a happy new year , good health and that all you wish come true in 2008. Best regards, Raymond

Laura, We had a great trip to the Galapagos. Getting to and from the islands was well organized and efficient. The ship that we were on was terrific. Well organized, great staff--the guides were really wonderful—very knowledgeable. The room was very comfortable, spacious and well kept. The food was good, but not great. The service in the dining room was excellent.

Before the trip I was concerned about being on a ship with so many other people, but they were very organized and the excursions were excellent. We are very happy that we decided on a 7 day trip. Once again, we thank you for your excellent services. KW James
