Columbus Travel was very professional and helpful. They prepared a wonderful trip for us and provided a very professional guide and driver. The Galapagos Legend was a good choice for the variety of experiences provided and the staff.

Dear Gabriela and a special hello to Tannya,

We are having a most interesting trip and we are very happy! The Galapagos was a wonderful experience. Our guide Federico was great and so knowledgeable. It was also interesting to talk to him about his family and life growing up and living on the islands. We really recommend him as a guide. Geovanny also – a lovely smiling gentleman !
All our meetings at airports, the ferry and the arrangements at the hotels are excellent.We were not expecting such luxury with the hotels !! Thank you for all these arrangements.

We met Javier last night and we are ready for our extensive tours in Guayaquil. Thank you for your thoughtful note of welcome , Tannya and for the lovely gifts!

We will certainly recommend Columbus Travel – and also the whole experience of Ecuador

Sincere regards
Robyn and Frank
