From the moment we were picked up from Quito to return to Galapagos airport it was beyond our expectations . Carlos our guide was amazing his knowledge beyond doubt so very friendly and answered all questions and looked after us so well and gave us an invaluable introduction to the various Islands we visited. The Alia was excellent our small group were so well suited we all got along and became good friends experiencing the islands and activities together. The crew were excellent and attended to everybody's needs and requests and the food delicious . I would certainly recommend to friends and colleagues.
Thank you - Hilary & Mike
Hello Elizabeth, Just wanted to let you know that we had a fabulous time aboard the Alya. The service was wonderful, the food fantastically tasteful and creatively presented, the excursions were fun and our guide, Sophia, was excellent. We certainly appreciate all your help. I would recommend your services and this ship to anyone. Thanks again,
Dear Veronica, Thank you for your mail which served as a reminder for me to send you a big THANK YOU for organizing such a wonderful trip for us. We thoroughly enjoyed all aspects of it and were most pleasantly impressed by the quality of all accommodation, guiding and service! Please also say thank you to Toni for him meeting us at the airport and guiding us through the formalities. The Napo Wildlife Centre was a very special experience and we thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Our guide david was so knowledgable and together with Eduardo, the naturalist went to great lengths to spot the often very elusive bird and wildlife. For me the most memorable experience though was the trip to the Galapagos Islands. The Alia catamaran is pure luxury with fantastic food and a very attentive crew. Maria Ramos was our naturalist guide and she is just outstanding in her knowledge and enthusiasm for this very special nature. She organized activities every day which included up to two land excursions and at least one or even two snorkeling trips. That really kept us busy and helped to assure that not all the good food was adding to our waist lines! All guests got along well with each other and we are likely to stay in touch with a couple of them. The cook even produced a cake for my birthday and I couldn't have wished for a more perfect birthday! With best regards, also to Toni.
