Hi Sofia, I wanted to give you some personal feedback. It was a long journey to get there. Thankful that you pushed me a bit to go.
I had a great time! The boat, crew, and other guests were the best. I will remember (and be working on photographs) for the rest of my life. I am putting some pics on Instagram if you do that. You can find me; there are not too many Todd Trasks. Thanks again. We only have so much time to do these sorts of things, and because of you, I did. Cheers,
Hello Gabriella, we had a very nice trip, very much enjoying ourselves and the experience. Your help and advice was greatly appreciated. Casa Gardenia is a lovely place, it was a very good choice, and would stay there again if we were in Quito. It is an old building yet modern inside, just the 9 rooms.
The Calypso cruise was great, the guide was very knowledgeable and personable, as was the rest of the crew. We were always busy doing something. Overall, we had a great time on the cruise and enjoyed being one-on-one with the animals. The other passengers were also very nice.
Hi Sofia, Everything was incredible! The guides were great and so were the excursions. Thank you for all your support throughout this process. We will be back and I’ve referred my friend, Anne, to your email as well!
