Our trip went very smoothly and we had an amazing time. The Hotel Vieja Cuba was charming, staff attentive and breakfast delicious. Also the Aida Maria and its crew were great, as well as the food. Our nature guide Ruben was very knowledgeable and friendly. Thank you for booking us this terrific trip. We do hope to return to see more of the Galapagos and I will contact you.
Cruise went perfect.
The guide Franklin was fabulous. Crew looked after us 24/7...really good. Food was varied and interesting. We couldn't have gone without the wetsuits and Franklin took all respoonsibility for mailing them back.
Thank you for all your help and direction. The only thing I didn't know was how rough the sea was and I had to up my doses of motion sickness meds to cover it.
